" As a dentist I always pursued my professional happiness and not only by trying to be a better dentist, or human being in general. My plan was simple: Fix problems and invest in what you’re not good at, to become better. This often resulted in frustration, negativity and inferiority complex. Till one day I met Eline and she showed me a completely new way of thinking, she introduced me to a new approach that you can apply immediately. STOP worrying about things I’m not good at and START recognizing & building on MY STRENGTHS.

She inspired me to maximize my potential and encouraged me to put this to practice with clear applicable action points. My plan is still SIMPLE, but much more objective and clear.
Thank you Strengths Consultancy!"
