Challenge your limiting beliefs to thrive as a freelancer in IT

As a ZZP’er or IT specialist you have to deal with many situations. Both in your work and life. But at the same time, there are also many opportunities, which might impact your career or life path. Your career plays an important role. It’s part of your life path. Sometimes we have a sense of control on our own career path, but there are also moments when external factors seem to influence this path. The big question is: are these external factors (events, situations, people) really determining your career path and if they do, how can you make them less influential?

As a career coach Dennis sees many people from different backgrounds and professions. And many of them have one thing in common: they feel completely stuck, something we all experience once in a while. It’s also interesting to see that these people have beautiful stories, unique combination of talents, valuable ideas, and impressive backgrounds. Basically, all ingredients to have a great career. But, while you are reading this text, you might be thinking “These people have probably something I don’t, better education, more experience, they are more successful”. …you are wrong. They are just like you and me.

But how come we get stuck? Why do we sometimes don’t know what we want or what the (best) next decision is, why do we stay in our current job/position or why are we working ourselves into stress and near burnouts? It’s the one thing that stops us from moving on; our own belief system, something we all have. And in these cases, they are mostly limiting us.

In this workshop, Dennis Beentjes from the Mindbrouwerij will take you through your own thinking and beliefs. Giving you an understanding how this ‘system’ works, understanding your own limitations and most importantly, how you can get a grip on yourself (again) and put yourself back into motion. Because besides limiting thoughts and beliefs we also have helping thoughts and beliefs, which can make your career path and your life flourish.

In this workshop you will learn:

- how certain events or situations trigger your behaviour

- understanding that your behaviour is not (always) caused by external events

- where our emotions come from

- why you are (sometimes) stuck (and that’s ok)

- that basically everybody has this…

- …helping you to understand the behaviour of others

- how to bring back ‘motion’ in your career/work

Situations where you can use this:

- When dealing with clients

- Making the ‘right’ decisions in your work and career

- Dealing with procrastination

- Dealing with stressful situations

- When feeling stuck in your career or life

About Dennis:

"I am co-founder and coach at the Mindbrouwerij. I have over 16 years of experience in the creative industry, working as a teacher, manager, marketer, and director in the private education sector. Throughout my career, I’ve learned that passion does not guarantee success or happiness in someone’s work-life. It requires the right framework, support group, and mindset to make that happen. But most importantly, you need to build the right belief-system to make the things you love to do most, work for you.

Reaching the point of being completely stuck in my career, I decided to get the help of a coach. This decision opened up a completely new world for me. The things I’ve seen and experienced first hand in my career and work environment all of a sudden made perfect sense and became clear. These insights and understanding made me first of all way less judgmental, and second, more compassionate, which helped me to direct and take control of my career and life again. Something I want to share with and inspire others to do the same.

At the Mindbrouwerij we believe that everybody has the ingredients to live a happy and successful life. By inspiring people through personal coaching, training and workshop events, we build the right framework to make personal development sustainable and most important, self-evident."
