What does personal growth mean to Marieke?

Marieke resonates with a quote by writer Paulo Coelho that perfectly aligns with how she feels and sees things: "With desire as the roadmap and your soul as the compass, your feet know where to go."

Which course does Marieke recommend and why?

Vitality and resilience are also crucial themes for organizations. Employees who are vital and resilient tend to be happier, more productive, experience less absenteeism, and develop greater sustainable employability.

Marieke has personally experienced what it feels like when vitality and resilience suddenly decline. Recovery was a part of her personal growth journey. She wholeheartedly recommends vitality courses within this theme as a preventive measure.
