Through my work in leadership development, entrepreneurship and advanced education, I regularly observe how we continuously think in old paradigms: degrees and certificates are the base for career success.

At the age of 18, most people struggle to make sound decisions about studies or future vocational ambitions. Current initiatives supporting youngsters to make their decisions about what to study, are focussing on their intelligence, their capabilities, their degrees or other cognitive-analytic indicators.

Together with TFG I want to approach this decision process from a different angle. I believe in a more holistic approach, based on 3 simple principles: put the talents of youngsters at the centre of their decisions; connect ratio, emotion and intuition, and increase self confidence.

I strongly believe that this way of working contributes to higher personal resilience and to an increased wellbeing and prosperity in our society.
