You'll finally get the tools to answer some of the life's biggest questions:

What is my true passion?

What is my mission?

What is the impact I am here to build? 

You’ll get expert input from our professional career coach Astrid Schrader every Friday lunchtime (1pm-2pm CET) for 8 weeks. 

You can do the program alongside your full-time job or studies and all you need is an internet connection and the willingness to do some real inner work. 

If you cannot make a Friday session you can catch up in your own time by watching the videos whenever you want. Then you can put the newly learned input into practice together with your own personal mastermind group that meets once a week at a time that suits you all. 

Though a unique combination of input and peer-coaching, you can develop a masterplan to help you reconnect with your inspiration and motivation and, ultimately, find a way to start living your passion and purpose. 

Are you ready to take the next bold step in your career in order to feel more alive again? Are you ready to create your masterplan to reconnect with some of the inspiration and motivation you’ve lost along the way? Then join us for the Purpose Fellowship! 

The Next Purpose Fellowship will begin on Friday, October 7th, 2022 and will run for 8 weeks, ending on Friday, November 25th, 2022.

Show Course Outline

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 5: FIND YOUR CREW

► This week we will focus on how to build yourself an ecosystem that challenges and supports you on your journey to more impactful work

WEEK 6: BUILD YOUR STORY

►The essence of a great first impression whether that’s in a CV, a networking event or an elevator is a credible and authentic story. Let’s develop yours. One that comes truly from the heart and the telling of which fills you up with pride!

WEEK 7: DARE GREATLY

► Let’s face it! Many of us struggle to dare great things, because we don’t feel confident enough. This is memorized suffering. If our thinking shapes our reality: What would you choose to think differently?

WEEK 8: THE STEPS BEYOND

► Just because the Purpose Fellowship is finished, doesn’t mean it’s ending! In this session we design a compelling path for you to go on after the Fellowship. 

►And… celebrate all our successes!

Our alumni gave the Purpose Fellowship 4.5 out of 5 stars!

Here's what they said: 
 "There is real value in working with like-minded strangers to help get objective feedback on your future, and working together toward a common goal means that you build a ready-made career network that will support you in your transition to a more interesting career.

"It enabled me to get back on track, regain my positivity, meet awesome, inspiring & purpose-driven people and to realise that I am not alone with my struggles."

"I feel grateful for having the chance to be part of this community! Seeing new faces, discussing so openly with other people and sharing our concerns and fears; but also our ambitions and power, already gave me lots of positive energy. It was very restorative."

"The fellowship has been exactly what I needed, it has made an incredible difference for me."
