The Hague: The Other Perspective Network Event: Self-Worth

8th October 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm WEST

The Self Worth Safari Book
A combined evening, it’s what we call it. An Exclusive Workshop with Sonja Wekema (The Other Perspective) & John Niland (Self-Worth Academy) and a networking celebration around the book launch.


How Self-Worth Transforms Your Working Life

Too many people start their days haunted by the ghost of insecurity. For some, the uncertainties relate to changes in organisation or marketplace. But the question that haunts many working lives is that perennial question: “How am I doing?”

It seems we are obsessed with assessments, more so than ever before. Most of all, by our self-assessments. This is hardly surprising: we have been educated in a culture of self-esteem: the reputation we have with ourselves. While self-esteem is good in many ways, it also writes a blank check for self-preoccupation and insecurity.

The incessant question “How am I doing?” is a recipe for weaker negotiators, narcissistic managers, and insecure professionals. Self-preoccupation is a malaise that often weakens real job effectiveness. When it’s your turn to buy a service, don’t you want a professional who is focused on YOUR needs, not his or her ratings or performance?

In their talk, Sonja Wekema and John Niland will highlight the difference between self-worth and self-esteem and show how this distinction illuminates a new pathway to real job effectiveness. A fresh understanding of self-worth transforms a working life, empowering a professional to:
– bounce back swiftly from setbacks
– be more courageous in meetings and/or with clients
– charge more for their services
– enable vital feedback conversations to take place
– inspire trust from co-workers and customers, particularly as a leader

The Self-Worth Safari

In your career and work, finances, and indeed all areas of life, experience the transformative power of a key relationship—the friendship you have with yourself.

In a world obsessed with building self-esteem—doing activities to improve our reputation with ourselves—our sense of well-being hinges on performance, the whims of good luck and positive outcomes. But when we don’t measure up to our own tough standards, things don’t go our way or life falls apart, we are called to access a deeper source of resilience, that of self-worth. In The Self-Worth Safari, author, speaker and business coach John Niland invites us on a powerful adventure to uncover this intrinsic state of value, which is ultimately untouched by changing fortune.

“The Self-Worth Safari shows you how to stop being a slave to your own self-doubt and anxiety, and ultimately discover more joy by becoming your own best friend.”
— Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times #1–bestselling author of Triggers, Mojo, and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
