Join the interactive workshop “Identify your strengths for your next career move” organised by Female Ventures on 5th of April 2023, led by professional coach Monika Matuszewska from LaMatu. This workshop is a part of the series of masterclasses and workshops organised by members of the Amsterdam city chapter of the Female Ventures Foundation.  This event is intended for female professionals interested in discovering and leveraging their strengths.


Gain deeper awareness into your character strengths and learn to successfully apply them during job interviews, in the workplace and your daily life. This practical, hands-on workshop is focused on identifying personal strengths and provides the participants with the self-confidence and practical tools to help them leverage their strengths. Expect to leave the event with new ideas to carefully plan and steer your career and make an impact in business.


Does any of the dilemmas described below sound familiar to you?

  • · Is it better to work on weaknesses or leverage your strengths?
  • · How to talk about your strengths without sounding boastful or arrogant?
  • · How to answer the most dreaded job interview question “Tell us about your weaknesses”?
  • · Do you have some character traits that you’d like to improve, but somehow something is sabotaging your ability to make and sustain positive change?



What can you expect?

  • · An opportunity for empowering self-reflection
  • · Learn to identify and fully own your strengths and weaknesses
  • · Gain new insights and learn from others
  • · Practical tools for developing your strengths
  • · A chance to practice talking about both your strengths and weaknesses in a genuine way
  • · A safe space where all opinions can be openly expressed and are equally respected.
  • · Feeling supported by the coach and other participants.
  • · Some practical tools to take away home and apply directly in your daily life
  • · A boost of positive inspiration and empowerment!


We will explore some of the most frequently asked questions and expose some common myths such as:

  • · Are “soft skills” and “strengths” an oxymoron?
  • · Can “female” qualities such as intuition, empathy or creativity be valued in the workplace?
  • · How to become more aware of your weaknesses? How to work with the weaknesses without becoming too critical and harsh on yourself?
  • · Is there such a thing as “too much of a good thing”?
