Who is it for?
The Purpose Fellowship is designed for purpose-driven professionals at any stage of their career, who align with our mission to make the world a better place. It is an entirely virtual career coaching program so you can take part from anywhere.
As the Purpose Fellowship is an intensive career coaching program specifically targeted at impact professionals, please only join, if all the following apply to you:
1. You are willing to DO THE WORK. Do not expect to be given a magic recipe for a better life with overnight results (although you should expect quite a few aha moments!)
2. This is NOT a personal coaching but instead a peer-to-peer coaching program. You are ready to receive feedback, to listen and are ready to give your time and energy to others, too. #no_arrogance
3. Purpose Fellows want to build a better life for themselves and a more sustainable and just global society.
Ready to transform your career and reconnect to your purpose?
Please note, all input sessions are carried out by our partners at The Arc, led by Astrid Schrader, Founder and Managing Director of The Arc, and a professional coach with over 10 years of experience.

WEEK 1: WHY AM I HERE?
►Get matched with your Mastermind and start right away into a process of honest self-enquiry: How am I generating the very conditions I am trying to avoid?
►We will take an inventory of how fulfilled we are in different areas of our (work) life, and which areas - if improved just a little bit - would have the biggest overall positive effect on all other areas in our lives
WEEK 2: IKIGAI - CONNECTING TO YOUR PURPOSE
► Based on our findings in Week 1 and using a powerful methodology to connect to your intuition, we shall indulge in a vision-building process where we will sense into the following questions: What is my true passion? What is my mission? What is the impact I am here to build?
WEEK 3: THE PURPOSE CAREER CANVAS
► Using our Purpose Canvas you will follow the key questions that you need to make what you have learned so far fit into a career. Yes, we'll talk about money as well as passion, people and roles.
WEEK 4: THE WHEEL OF CHANGE
► Knowing where you are heading, what you need to let go of, what you need to accept and what you need to change is what this session is about. Cut down your to-do list and focus on what really matters.

WEEK 7: DARE GREATLY
