IQ EQ SQ
Current society and education centre themselves around the development of the IQ (intelligence quotient). At Master Yr Life, we believe that the development of your EQ (emotional quotient) and SQ (awareness of something larger than ourselves) are just as important, and that the integration of these three ‘brains’ results in the ultimate realisation of your full potential.

WORKSHOPS & INFO
MasterYrLife offers workshops for groups of ten to fifteen young adults (ages 21-27 years). You can sign up for a workshop with an existing group.
The dynamic and interaction of an existing group ensures a powerful and inspiring atmosphere. Collectively experiencing a workshop contributes to the maximisation of shared trust and can deepen the connection within a group. Though the workshops are conducted in groups, the impact and focus are very much on the individual.
MasterYrLife also offers the opportunity to sign up alone, or with a few others (not a whole group). The workshops with open registration are organised only a few times a year. See ‘practical information’.
We organise open registration workshops a few times a year. The workshop will need with a minimum of 7 people. Registrations: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can register as an existing group (friend group, sports team, fraternity, house, club, board, etc.) via email@example.com,. We can then discuss a suitable date.

EXPERIENCES WITH MASTERYRLIFE
Previous participants of the workshops organised by Master Yr Life state that they understand themselves better. The experience has increased self-awareness and has made a positive impact on their perspective on life.
I enjoyed realising that there is nothing wrong with fears. Everyone has fears and it would be a shame to give in to them, like not doing things because you’re afraid of the consequences.
My key takeaway? Not being so quick to judge people, and instead understanding what feelings and emotions hide behind a person’s behaviour. And then counting to ten more often…
In daily life, I am super busy, running from one thing straight into another. During this workshop I have noticed how important self-reflection actually is. Looking at myself from a balcony perspective and reflect on my next move creates more awareness and rest.
It is so useful to take “me-time” and get a better understanding about who you are and why you act as you do. I am in the midst of my master’s program and have not yet an idea what I should be doing afterwards. And this MYL workshop gave me rest and I do feel stronger.
In the workshop, I have found out why I, sometimes, react so emotionally and forcefully. I have learned about my triggers, which is very helpful
I thought this “kumbaya” stuff would be way too soft for me, but actually I found out that meditation is not soft at all. It helps me to navigate in complexity and times of stress.
After finishing University, I was drawn by the professionalism, versatility and velocity of the international business-life. I worked for multinational companies in South America and Asia where I got the opportunity to learn an incredible amount about different cultures, the people, about all aspects of life really.
I am fascinated by growth and transformation, in consciousness and behavior, in individuals and organizations. In my own consultancy company, The Star Ferry, I guide people and teams to grow, with the incentive “empowerment, empathy and effectiveness”. All of this with a touch of good humor. ;).
I am married, mother of three daughters and a young dog. For inspiration I love going to the seaside.
After finishing my Masters in French Literature, I started life as a teacher, reinvented myself after 7 years and ended up in a career as an HR professional. I have worked as a CHRO for several corporates, and at that time was very much driven by status and ambition. I have always had curiosity regarding the behavior and development of human beings. And in 2013 I decided to follow my intuition and heart and reinvented myself again. I started my own coaching & consultancy company and next to that I hold several supervisory board positions. I am fully convinced that people are happier and more successful, once they know their authentic self and can feel empathy for self and others. And even more so when they have resilience and emotional intelligence at their disposal.
Ik ben getrouwd en moeder van 1 zoon en 2 dochters. I am married, mother of a son and two daughters. I live alternately in Amsterdam and Doesburg. Nature is an eternal source of inspiration for me.
FOUNDERS: WHO WE ARE?
Geesje and Maaike: we met at work in the corporate world, as consultants in leadership development and culture transformation.
Inspired by a group of young adults who showed huge interest in our work and wondered if they could have a personal experience of it themselves, we founded The MasterYrLife Foundation.
We both believe that increasing consciousness and unlocking people’s full potential, is the way that we as more complete human beings can make our contribution to the world.
We and our Team feel driven to share our knowledge, experience and wisdom with the next generation. This learning experience is entirely mutual!
Our coaches dedicate themselves fully and
without any personal benefit to the movement
of MasterYourLife. All of them have made the
transfer from an earlier business job in
corporate life to the profession of coach and
facilitator. They are all formally accredited and
very experienced in individual and team
coaching and delivering transformational
They share the passion of supporting leaders to
create more human centric organizations and
they all strive to develop individuals through
increasing consciousness and delivering insights.
