the career HAPPINESS group Programme
Your very own career coaching solution 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.
It's time to make your career fulfilling again
We want work to make you feel engaged, energised and stimulated.
At Zest Ambition, we have developed a proven science-based methodology to help you find your Career Mojo.

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.
To have a flourishing career, you need to find ways to turn these trends into our advantage. This process requires 3 steps:
1- To be crystal clear on what we want out of our career in order to navigate this unprecedented period effectively and minimise feelings of stress and overwhelm.
2- To develop confidence in our ability to adapt and perform (our career agility skills), which is a skill that you can develop through self-awareness.
3- To express our singularities if we want to survive and thrive. This is what this programme is all about, finding your singularities, the unique blend of skills, experiences, strengths and personality that makes you perfectly suited to pursue a specific purpose.
We have developed this programme with these trends in mind to help you develop skills that are in high demand from companies and customers: emotional intelligence, career agility, self-awareness, creativity, innovation, collaboration, flexibility and focus. What you need to remember is that you are more likely to develop these skills if you enjoy what you do for a living.
We 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 life 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.
The ''Happiness Gap'' might have hit you too
Are you facing any of the five career challenges below?
1- You are stuck with no ideas or no ‘’good ideas’’ on how to move forward whether forward means up or sideways.
2- You have lots of ideas to move forward but you don't know where to start. You find it hard to structure them and focus to make progress.
3- You fear making the wrong decision and constantly play ''what ifs'' scenarios in your head.
4- You feel demotivated, frustrated, maybe stressed or even overwhelmed. You want a plan of action that will give you clarity, realistic steps and motivation to move forward.
5- You lack confidence in what you could achieve and worry about losing what you have for something that would potentially not be as good.
All five of the career challenges listed above lead to inertia. The good news is that they can be solved through awareness, compassion and accountability.
This is why we have put these 3 concepts at the heart of our Career Happiness Programme.
The Career Happiness Programme will transform the way you think about yourself and your professional life.
At the end of this programme, you will finally know what you really want, why you want it and how to go about getting it.
You will have unlocked 5 essential tools to thrive in your career:
1- Gained clarity on what you want and need to enhance your career happiness
2- A tailored plan of action to blaze your authentic career trail
3- Rewired your mind for confidence and abundance
4- Let go of any beliefs that was getting in your way
5- A toolkit to protect and enhance your career happiness for the rest of your working life

A few words from your Career Happiness Coach
I am Mathilde but you can call me Mattie.
I am a career coach and positive psychologist with over a decade of experience helping businesses from start ups to big corporations expand their online presence. I have been an employee, I have been 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, startup 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 professionals around the world feel engaged, valued and inspired at work.
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.
