In the dictionary it says: “The accomplishment of an aim or purpose”. Suppose that humans want to accomplish all needs as described by Maslow: “How well am I scoring?” My immediate physical needs are taken care off: I feel safe. Even better, I feel a sense of belongingness: I am the mother of three healthy boys and together with the love of my life; we do our best to create a warm and safe environment for the family. That feels already like a success. But there is more to Maslow’s pyramid of needs: self-esteem and achieving one’s full potential. In my life, the ENLP has played a significant role in fulfilling these needs. Looking back, I was the oldest at home and had to compete with a three year’s younger brother for whom learning was a piece of cake. This wasn’t the case for me. I was rather average, or as the head teacher thought, below average. He gave the advice to tune down my ambition in the choice of my secondary school. This awoke the tiger in me: I was challenged and I wanted to proof others wrong. With determination, I passed the highest level of secondary education, went to University and started my PhD! Despite those achievements, I often felt average, not too special whilst being surrounded by many clever people. Then I was selected to join the ENLP seminar in the last year of my PhD. I knew that it was a great course, but it exceeded my expectations. It touched upon the fundamental skills that people, who want to have an impact on their own life, need. I learned so much about my strengths and weaknesses, but above all, it gave me self-esteem and confidence. I stayed active in ENLP and was fortunate enough to participate in ENLP Advanced. The programme helped me to become a better authentic leader through the focus on building trust, being aware of my influence on people, leading teams effectively and decision making. Most importantly, the course laid a strong foundation for a so-called “Action Learning Group”. This group still comes together on a regular basis. It gives me the opportunity to be vulnerable in a safe environment and thereby it helps me to grow in my potential thanks to the advice of my peers. Has the ENLP been an important factor to my success in life? I am convinced it has. Therefore, I am very grateful for the great minds who identified the need for this course and turned their vision into reality. Thanks to the ENLP founders, each year about 40 potential leaders in nutrition are working on being the best they can be so that they too can accomplish their goals, both professionally and personally. How’s that for success?!
