QUIST Executive Coaches

for executives looking towards
professional & personal growth

Career paths are non linear or even predictable. As long as you are in the middle of it you don’t realise that. It is difficult to put yourself and your own situation in perspective. From a more distant view your situation is neither unique nor dramatic. You are inclined to solve your own problems. Haven’t you always taken care of yourself?
In any executive career at one unforeseen moment issues will arrive which you cannot solve on your own. Issues that seem insolvable. On your own you tend to choose the way which is most plausible. For example by doing nothing, or hanging in whilst getting more and more unhappy. Or on the contrary take a radical action: resign or escalate a conflict. You need to act smartly. Facing dilemma’s. Taking decisive steps.

Decisive moments in your career

You are a careerwoman who has come a long way through talent and resilience – but you are fed up with all the unwritten rules and the masculine climate in your company. Or as the newly appointed CEO, you are in your dream job but expectations of your environment are unreasonably high. You are Partner in a firm knowing you need to retire in the next two years but you hope they will grant you an exception of the retirement age. As a midlife executive you wonder if you are still in the right place after 20 years of consistent career advancement. As a corporate executive you have lived abroad for many years and have to find your way back into the Netherlands. All lonely in an unknown situation. You are facing a huge transition in your professional life.
