introducing our signature Career happiness Programme
Your key to finally do work that you love.
If you feel unhappy with your career, rest assured, you are not alone...
A global poll conducted by Gallup has uncovered that out of the world’s one billion full-time workers, only 15% of people are engaged at work. That means that an astronomical 85% of people are unhappy in their jobs.
"I created this Programme to fill the ''Happiness Gap'' in our education system"
DESPITE RESEARCH PROVING THAT HAPPINESS IS A LEARNED SKILL,
WE ARE NEVER TAUGHT
HOW TO BE HAPPY.
We spend on average 90,000 hours working in our lives so it is crucial to learn how to be happy at work and with our work. This programme aims to fix this ''Happiness Gap'' because if our career doesn't work, it has a multiplying effect on other areas of our lives.
It's time to make your career fulfilling again
Work should make you feel engaged, energised and stimulated.
This programme combines a series of coaching, positive psychology and design thinking techniques to unlock your potential and help you embark on a fulfilling career path.
Some examples of techniques used include deep questioning, future visualisation, strength fluency, value elicitation, goal setting, mind mapping, skills card sorting, etc. All of these techniques aim to help you design a path around the 4 core components of IKIGAI:

A few words about me and my vision
I am Mathilde but you can call me Mattie.
I am a career coach and positive psychology practitioner with over a decade of experience helping businesses from start ups to big corporations expand their online presence. I have been employed, self-employed and I am now a fulfilled entrepreneur. I've worked in four different countries and managed teams spread out across the globe.
So far, my career has given me the chance (that's how I see it now, at least!) to experience the highs and lows of the corporate, start-up and entrepreneur worlds, the good and bad of a working from home life, the feelings of being unstoppable but also the overwhelming periods of doubts, work exhaustion and feeling stuck. I have been through numerous phases of questioning about my purpose, my career success, the meaning of work. I went through a number career transitions who led me to the become the fulfilled mum, wife, friend and entrepreneur that I am today.
I am on a mission to help individuals around the world feel inspired, valued and fulfilled in their professional life.
To do so, I use science-based methodologies, tools and transformational activities to help turn a bad day, week, month or year(s) into opportunities for a happy and thriving future.
I look forward to personalising what I have learned so far through my studies and life experiences to your circumstances so that you too, can take your Career Happiness to the next level.
The world is changing.
Now is the perfect time to focus on your Career Happiness.
The Covid-19 pandemic has opened the door to a new era in the working world: more self-employed, more flexibility, more remote work, more globalisation of resources, more uncertainty.
In parallel, technology and social media have significantly increased our exposure to a ''world of perfection'' (we see others with a perfect body, perfect house, perfect job, perfect family, perfect children, etc.). Of course, this world of perfection demands nothing short of perfectionism from us and this has led many to fall into the trap of excessive self-criticism.
Remote working normalised
It completely transforms the way we used to work and interact at work. It can bring a sense of loneliness and disconnect too.
on the rise
Companies and customers are looking for more flexibility which has contributed to the development of the gig economy supported by the self-employed.
Demand for ethical and personal brands
Brand and personal values have been brought at the forefront of the decision making when it comes to consumption which created new opportunities.
Social media has increased how fast we connect and communicate and how exposed we are to ''perfection'' which impact our confidence.
Career Composer has been developed to help you turn the work trends into your advantage
This will help you navigate this unprecedented period effectively and minimise feelings of stress and overwhelm.

What clients say
Our Career Happiness Programme is
the first step towards the future you want.
The big question you need to answer before signing up is:
How committed are you to take control of your career & future?
Committed means that you believe that things can change (you don't need to know how they will change, you just need to trust that they can change). Committed also means that you are ready and willing to dedicate time to making this work (~15 minutes per day outside of the sessions).
This commitment is like a promise to yourself that you want and will find ways to create a happy career, with my support, of course.
If you decide that you are committed to your future happiness, then, you are ready to reserve your spot and I am delighted and excited to welcome you to the Zest Ambition family. I can't wait to watch you grow and blaze a fulfilling and authentic trail for your career.
