You want to be in control of your own career. You may feel that your working life environment is changing or that it is definitely ready for a change. In that case you probably need to ask yourself some fundamental questions:

  • How do I manage this situation?
  • How do I make my own mind up?
  • What would be my desired working environment?

With PIT Self-Placement® you will be enabled to answer those fundamental questions yourself.

Your job is your passport in working life; it is – to a large extent – your image.

Work forms a significant part of your identity, how people perceive you and how you view yourself.

People around us often interfere with the important choices we need to make in our lives. So do our motivation, abilities, reputation, as well as our believes and values. Frequently we take decisions influenced by the (projected) expectations of the people around us and by society in large.

Even whilst we would rather make our own choices – disregarding what friends, family or other beloved ones might think or expect from us – we rarely do so.

In some cases people lose their jobs or their jobs disappear in a reorganization. In other cases people would like to reorganize their working life environment themselves.

What do you do if you feel that ‘change’ is likely to occur soon? What do you do if you do not like your current job or occupation anymore? When you feel that your heart is no longer in it? How do you steer away from being affected by external factors like other people’s convictions, projections and perhaps even their negativity? How do you regain positive control in such circumstances?

There is more in you. You are more than the image society may hold of you. The outside world sees your track record, but what they do not see are your hidden talents and dreams, which could be ready to developed and explored once you decide to show them to the world

We all have our own identity and a part of that may never have been exposed to the outside world. Until now, that is.

What does PIT do for you?

People In Transformation (PIT) offers self-placement® programmes. A PIT-programme enables you to address some fundamental topics yourself:

‘What do I really want to do?’

‘What keeps me from doing what I really want to do, what precisely constrains me?’

‘Which talents and thus far undiscovered capacities do I possess?’

‘How do I transform my current working environment into my desired working environment?’

PIT-programmes aim to give the candidate an insight into one’s intrinsic motivation. Contrary to existing psychological tests we measure the true motives of the candidate. Furthermore we make it clear which obstacles and constraints prevent a candidate from following that true intrinsic motivation. Once unleashed from those obstacles and constraints, the candidate can – to their own enormous relief – become who one really is or wants to be at this point in life.

PIT Self-Placement® offers a unique programme since it does not focus on the current visible capacities and drives of the individual but rather on the successful self-directed transformation of the individual.

What is self-placement®?

Self-placement® is the self-directed transformation of the individual. The aim is to enable the candidate to get a clear insight into who one really is and what next career step would be most desired as a result of that insight. With the new self-acquired insight in mind, the candidate takes oneself by the hand into the self defined direction.

However, there are many obstacles, which could often hinder the candidate in this transformation process. They include, amongst others, perceptions about desired status, about social identity and about skills and capacities.

Also a resume could very well work against the candidate’s interest, especially if the desired future is quite different compared to the track record the candidate has built over the past years. Is it a sign of failure to leave your current career path or is it, on the contrary, the act of an independent mind if one decides to do so? It is all a matter of perception, both by the candidate as well as the ‘influencers’ surrounding him or her.

In self-placement® the focus is on the candidate gaining insight, making up one’s mind and taking the crucial first step. Even if that fresh insight would result in the candidate deciding to stay on the same career path: also that decision would then still be the result of a self-acquired new insight of the desired future path.

Self-placement® is a unique combination of ‘insight’, ‘choice’ and ‘action’.

Self-placement® is doing it all by yourself, but not on your own.

How does it work?

PIT Self-Placement® includes the PIT Assessment.

This assessment is based on an unique, validated, scientific method (Q-method, University of Chicago, prof. W. Stephenson, 1953).

The PIT Assessment measures the candidate’s own assessment of their working life and environment at this moment, as well as the candidate views on a desired working life and environment. Furthermore, the PIT Assessment also clearly identifies the candidate’s barriers and obstacles, which, if not addressed properly, would prevent a successful transformation from happening.

The PIT Assessment is a unique tool due to the fact that all other psychological tests measure motivation, skills and abilities of the candidate, whereas the PIT Assessment measures the candidate’s potential for a successful transformation.
