Rutger Koopmans

decided to quit his job as a banker (the 2008 financial crisis), just half a year prior to the financial crisis, to pursue new avenues and explore other talents. Over the following decade this decision brought great excitement to his working life, although it was not all plain sailing. In his book “Your Life Your Rules, taking back control” (Brandt Publishers, 2017) he shared his experiences as a free man, as well as the valuable lessons he has learned along the way. Rutger presents a model containing a series of (14) key questions that everyone could use when they feel that a transformation process is on its way or is called for.

The Q-method, developed in 1953 by Professor W Stephenson of the University of Chicago, is the basis of systemic analysis of ‘human subjectivity’, using self-referential meaning and interpretation as essential elements. This methodology enables quantitative as well as qualitative measurement and analysis of human preferences and opinions. Nina founded Q-Research BV in 1992 and carried out marketing research assignments and projects for most major corporate companies in The Netherlands, as well as for the Dutch Government.

Rutger and Nina have designed the PIT Self-Reference assessment, based on the Q-methodology, using the 14 key questions of Rutgers’ book. The PIT Self-Reference assessment measures the candidate’s self-evaluation of their current working environment, as well as the candidate’s views on a desired working life and environment. The PIT Self-Reference assessment also clearly identifies the candidate’s barriers and obstacles which, if not addressed properly, would prevent a successful transformation from happening.

Coaches and Therapists

The PIT Self-Placement® programmes are supported by a team of specialised and certified coaches and therapists who, using the PIT Self-Reference assessment outcome, support the candidate with their self-placement® and taking control of their transformation journey.
