Do you want to kick off the festive season with a treat?
Come and discover the little-known science that explains how to always feel valued, stimulated and sustained in your career.
A workshop by Jessica J.J. Lutz — Sustainable Leadership for Women
Are you full of ideas and enthousiasm, but you hesitate to step forward? How are you doing in negotiations? Do tasks get pushed your way, because you’re always nice enough to do them? Are you sacrificing your private time for work, but is it just taken for granted? Or does it seem your male colleagues are given more interesting assignments? Do you feel inadequate or angry, not knowing how to even start competing?
From this workshop you will come away with breakthrough insights and practical actions you can take immediately to ensure that you have a career that gives you both joy and achievement.
- learn how to feel appreciated at all times
- learn how to firmly stand your ground
- understand what’s key to always feeling energised
- know how to keep up your motivation
- boost your inner confidence
After our time together you will understand what subconscious programs have been pulling you down, shed the thought patterns that were keeping you there, and open the way to feeling happy at work and bringing out your true potential.

Feminine traits like empathy, self-sacrifice and always going the extra mile can severely undermine you. Jessica J.J. Lutz experienced this first-hand when she poured her heart and soul into reporting the news from Turkey and its neighbours for more than two decades. Never saying no to the eternal deadlines, and her deep involvement with the victims of so many conflicts and disasters eventually took their toll.
Searching for ways to heal and bring back the joy in her life she returned to her old hobby: the study of the subconscious, which determines 90% of our behaviour. After a detour into writing novels, she developed herself as mind-body therapist. In 2009, she left journalism behind. Still in Istanbul, she started helping people shed the – sometimes traumatic – baggage of their past.
The sixth sense she developed in a region where people are often unable to speak their mind is of great value also in her practice in Brussels, where she has lived since 2015. She works as a coach and counsellor with professional women who want to move ahead but feel held back. She helps them confidently take the lead in their life, have fun and stand in their power while remaining true to themselves.
Working for print, radio and television has taught her to make information understandable for wider audiences, a skill she uses during her workshops, panel debates, and public speaking.
Jessica is very sensitive to the needs of her audience, which makes her an excellent lecturer. We at Koç University truly appreciate her candor and practical life experience, and found the seminar very helpful for all of our potential career paths.

Jessica Lutz has the knack of recognising subtle thought and behaviour patterns. She can translate the subliminally felt need for change into a clear and convincing argument, and her analysis is rational, intuitive and deeper than usual. She knows like no other the inclination of women to make themselves small, without being aware of it. Jessica helps women to let go of what keeps them small.
Lily Sprangers, Director, Turkey Institute, The Hague
During the two-day program Jessica provided an excellent exchange of views, as well as an interesting confrontation with different realities. [We] highly recommend Jessica as a speaker.
