Let sensitive talent surprise you
Being highly sensitive, a subject that you increasingly hear about and which may raise questions. What is it exactly and what is it not? How does it play a role for example on the work floor, with work experience and/or knowledge?

Investing in HSP is inevitable
Being highly sensitive often comes to light when someone is negatively affected by it. Think of stress complaints, tiredness or neck, back or stomach pains. Or the vaguer complaints such as feelings of loneliness, asking oneself ‘what the use is’, adapting a lot, being known as a listener but not being able to listen to oneself. The complaints accumulate, continue to linger, which means that sooner or later breakdowns, absenteeism or burn-out seem inevitable with all its consequences. You should therefore turn it around: investing in HSP is inevitable if you want to prevent (repeated) breakdowns, absenteeism and burnout.
Everyone has encountered an HSP
You may have encountered an HSP at work in your role as an HR manager, as a manager on the work floor or you recognize it in a co-worker. Or you see an HSP in you daily practice as career coach, therapist or psychologist. Or you see that children in your class or practice are highly sensitive. Whatever your role, the chances are that you encountered an HSP. Why? Because scientific research indicates that about 20% of the population has this trait. 1 in 5 people is highly sensitive, although not everyone knows this about themselves
The reason for Hooggevoelig heel gewoon
You want clarity, practically and scientifically substantiated. You are looking for straightforwardness, people with a solid background and who are ‘down to earth’. You like to approach high sensitivity inclusive instead of exclusive, so that it is not an exception. It is not placed next to the group (work floor, classroom, society), but it is placed within society and sensitive talent is utilized so that the highly sensitive person and his/her surroundings can benefit.
We work throughout society, so whatever your role, position and background, you are in the right place. Chances are that you recognize yourself in: (1) Work in a company or educational institute and you are looking for information for your employees or one of your clients. Think about partnership and collaboration, for example the way UWV works together with us on Werkfit programs. (2) You come across HSP in your work and want to specialize and profile yourself as an expert. Think about training and education ranging from an afternoon to six months. (3) Or you recognize yourself as being highly sensitive and want to start to explore, to learn how to prevent overstimulation and reduce stress and/or to discover and utilize your sensitive talent. Think about coaching, through our national network.
