Program Features

What is the Target?

Our goal is to discover your ikigai on a professional and personal level. We are human and we have much more than our profession, we have our family, relationships, friends, hobbies, interests and goals. The ikigai package is designed in such a way that we take into account all the "systems" of a human being.

Is it for you?

The programme is addressed to people who
- want to make a career change,
- know their options and want to decide which one to follow,
- or want to know themselves better by having a clear vision and goals they want to achieve in life. It is especially suggested to people who have gained experiences in their lives.

How long does it last?

Usually, the programme lasts 1-2 months in total. We usually do 1-2 sessions per week and you need to complete 1-2 exercises by the next session. The ikigai calls are 60-90 minutes long and the time needed for the exercises is usually 15-30 minutes per exercise.

Finding and prioritising values and incentives

Duration: 60-90 minutes

Personal values and motivation play a crucial role in order to approach our Ikigai as they influence the goals we set, our relationships and our daily behaviors. In this session we will identify and analyze your values and motivations that motivate you to achieve your goals. 

Desirable working conditions and interests

Duration: 60-90 minutes

In this session we do an exercise with 100 short questions where we see how you behave in different situations, professional interests and what are the desired benefits and working conditions you would like to have. It's equally important to both find the subject matter that suits you and to see how you are suited to doing it, such as with what people and in what kind of working environment.

Strengths - Weaknesses Analysis

Duration: 60-90 minutes
Likes/Dislikes & SWOT Analysis

In this session we will delve into characteristics, skills, abilities and behaviours. Using the SWOT Analysis methodology and Owiwi's online game/test for the 11 personal skills, it will be clear to you what your competitive advantages are as an individual and which areas need improvement. At the same time we will delve into what you like in a working environment to get even closer to the subject that suits you.

Personal & Professional goals

Duration: 60-90 minutes

Goals are essential in our lives, they keep us alert and focused on what we seek to achieve, we feel a responsibility to ourselves to pursue our dreams, they determine our actions and of course they develop us. In this session, we will set personal and professional goals using S.M.A.R.T and NLP methodologies. We seek opportunities for new knowledge and experiences in Greece, abroad and online.

Renewal of goals and Vision board

Duration: 60-90 minutes

In this session we will refresh the goals to be clear in our minds, discuss which are the 5 most important ones of all and what that means. We will also do another related exercise, a visionboard, a collage of photos that represents our goals and visually, so that the thinking takes the form of a picture.

Summary, ikigai results and next steps

Duration: 60 minutes

Even if we have found our passion, it is important to design a strategic plan for the next steps. Your personal advisor will help you organize your thoughts and determine steps, both short and long term. In the final session, we will review the plan, discuss results and next steps, resolving questions and reflections. Our journey to ikigai has just begun.
