Connected, we all gain strength!

Indigo-Wereld developed the program ‘Get in Touch with people & places in Eindhoven’, meant for spouses of international knowledge workers.

The program helps the ´accompanying´ spouses to feel at home in a very short time. 

Right from the beginning the participants start building their personal network. Attractive trips & tours help them find out what the new hometown has to offer in regard to educational, cultural and social facilities.

Besides, they could orientate on (un)paid jobs, studies or other meaningful activities.

Iro Perera, one of the spouses and co-coordinator of Get in Touch: ‘Get in Touch has been a life saver for me. It helped me connect with my new town. I got a lot of friends. I feel at home now’.

Get in Touch helps international spouses to find an anchoring in the new residence. Along with their partners, they face the challenge to create a stable home to live up to the investment of their mission.

‘HR management has not only to do with the job and the workload, but should also support the spouses. The program helps them to make friends and to have an idea of what Eindhoven has to offer.’ (Mr. J.P. van Ham, Vice President of the Executive Board of  TU/e)

In other words: happy spouses leads to happy employees and therefore happy employers. 

Get in offers a variety of activities:

  • Weekly trips, tours or network meetings, educationally, culturally and socially to get in touch with people & places and start building a new personal network.
  • Short track projects next to the weekly meetings, such as: dance and music groups, film project, group talks.
  • Coaching & counseling around ‘the challenges of living abroad’ and  (external) support when seeking for (un)paid jobs, studies or other meaningful activities.

In consultation a suitable package will be offered, tailor made to your needs.

The Inner Power

Indigo-Wereld offers  the practical Group Coaching Program ‘The Inner Power, embracing your hidden qualities’.

The program supports students who are struggling with severe study delay or even cessation of study, due to personal and/or social setbacks.

In close cooperation with Fontys Teacher Training College Eindhoven, some good experiences have been achieved with positive results for the students involved and for the college as well.

In five sessions, students get a more positive image of their ‘inner world’. They resume their otivation and take once more the responsibility for their own study career.

Sokaina Erradouane: ‘It has learned me to dare to look a bit further ahead and to pull the best out of myself. I got the feeling that it isn’t that bad to open yourself and that working through bad patches is part of life, with support of others’.

The program helps students to get a better view on obstructive as well as assisting aspects of their ‘inner world’. Supported by a positive approach, they pick up their hidden qualities and motivation. Equipped by this, they are capable to take their responsibility again for their own study career.

We saw that the students were  benefitting from the program, they felt better about themselves and chose more consciously for a positive focus’, (Mr. H.J.T. van de Ven, managing director of Fontys Academy Child and Education).

The program contains various characteristics:

  • Five sessions spread over 5-10 weeks
  • Small groups of 5-10 persons
  • Various methods: group talks, individual instructions, working in subgroups of two or more people
  • A positive focus, based on recognition of hindrances
  • Centered around practical tools and successful experiences
  • Targeting towards ambitions, dreams and sustained perspectives.

In consultation a suitable package will be offered, tailor made to your needs.

For instance: how to make positive use multilinguism & diversity in daily routine, how to create a strong cooperation between parents and teachers and how to support the children at school.  

Group Talks with parents usually consist of 3-5 sessions in the school.

Team meetings are organized on demand and in cooperation with the management and could consist of one or more meetings at school.

Reflection on the threshold of moving out

Pushing announcements like these bounce back to us from all sides. Invitations to speed up your decisions, your experiences, your life. Surely, it's appealing to follow the flux and not miss any interesting event. But it withholds you also from contemplating about life.

Between Nosiness and Interest

Recently, I travelled to Den Bosch. I love public transport. Endless dozing, reading books, working on reports or dreaming away. Gazing out of the window, I heard people talking. In a same tone of voice, I find it reassuring and helpful to nod off. Not this time. Loud voices kept me awake, whether I liked it or not.

Chaotic and wise

So now I am sweating over my first little story.
Who am I? A chaotic time struggler with too many tasks to fulfill? A calm and wise person with a deep inner self confidence? A woman balancing between these two extremes? Let me introduce myself properly.

Memory Lane

Waiting on platform 5 of Amsterdam Central Station. Not too busy for a vacation period. What does occur to me is a remarkable number of grandmas, grandpas and their grandchildren, being waved farewell or embraced back home by their parents.
