Meet Valentijn, an LeAn / Agile coach.
“Flow is in many ways the missing piece of the puzzle. Since the start of my career I felt that I have been wandering around without going in a clear direction. I have tried different disciplines in the past decade crossing over from management positions to consultancy and then to coaching. My world has flip flopped from abstract technical work to human centric work, from employment to entrepreneurship, from earning a living to ‘living life’, and from changing outside circumstances to changing my own inner experience...which leads me to the Flow Centre.”
“When I reached out to The Flow Center my goal was to learn more about flow and learn new ways to find more of it. Secondly, I wanted to incorporate this into my coaching activities.”
“Why flow? Human beings have an innate longing to master the things they love doing and becoming one with it. And when they do they find themselves in flow; knowingly or unknowingly. Intuitively everybody knows this, however most people are not necessarily aware of this or have thought about how to purposefully engineer it.”
“Simple. Their track record is impressive. I started with the online training and quickly decided that I wanted to learn more. So I did the Coaching Diploma and the Flow Diploma.”
The training deepened my knowledge of the science behind flow, such as the psychology, neurophysiology and other aspects of flow. It also widened my knowledge and practice of proximal concepts such as mindfullness etc.”
“Put simply, it helped me to understand how the mind, body and energies all collaborate to produce our inner experience and in particular the flow experience.”
“But the real golden nugget was that flow can not be learned from a book or by studying theories. It takes real effort and practice to master. The training facilitates you to get you going. To master it, requires deeper practice; integrative practices. Through the training I learned to build my own flow practice which I now do almost daily. It has helped me to set the right challenge and manage my intentions in what I do. It has helped me to condition my mind, body and energies in the right way to find flow more easily in any activity".
I was already working as a coach and very familiar with flow, but I was struggling to be the coach I knew I could be. I lacked a robust coaching framework and support system…Hear other stories
