Outer Circle


Once you’ve thought about what it is you want, and why, the next step is to tell your story: to the head-hunters, decision-makers in the desired sector, your own contacts, and last but not least, to the ‘Outer Circle’ at QUIST.
QUIST has a network of leaders from the business community and government who are willing to stand by our clients with feedback on their plans, with ideas, and sometimes with introductions to the right people.

Top managers network of companies and organizations

Whether you’re looking for a new step in your career, a different approach to your current job, or growing into a new role: the advice of an authoritative insider in your world will always be extremely valuable.

You and your coach have identified your coaching question, set clear goals, and ‘written’ a good story. Now the fresh perspective of an engaged outsider can help.

QUIST has a network of leaders from the business community and government who are willing to stand by our clients with feedback on their plans, with ideas, and sometimes with introductions to the right people. An Outer Circle member is someone from outside your life and your process who has no other interest than to help you move forward with a constructive conversation.
