What others say:

Since becoming certified as a professional user of Ikigai, I had the opportunity to go through the question game with my coachee in Melbourne.  It was such an amazing process – each aspect unlocked more about him, his skills and abilities than I had discovered when I did his Extended DISC profile.  I have to admit I was so surprised that we arrived at what he called a ‘breakthrough’ and absolutely nailed his Ikigai.  Am still shaking my head as to how it happened so perfectly ... we not only validated what he loves, and what he is good at (including the input from his trusted friends and colleagues on what they thought he should be doing) but we totally confirmed via the reality check that this was to be his absolute ideal role both in terms of his skills, passions and potential income.  It was an extraordinary process for us both and by some coincidence the exact role has become available.  It may have been there all along but now having such a ‘laser beam focus’ on his purpose by using Ikigai questions, it has made the job search that much more effective for him.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.  It really is a game changer for any coach wanting to take their coaching practice to the next level.

I am a professor working with millennial students who are trying to figure out their careers. They love games (who doesn't) but not particularly wanting to focus on the results of a questionnaire or take the time for self-reflection. I felt that this would be a quicker and more fun method for them do develop their career paths.

Thanks to the Ikigai Coaching Institute I learned the Ikigai philosophy and the Ikigai questions game tool. I am convinced that we all benefit to use this tool in one-on-one coaching and in team coaching. Understanding your Ikigai will ultimately bring added value to personal mental enrichment and ultimately bottom line business improvement.
