Joy and suffering are close together ...

Just yesterday I did learn that I will not be invited for the assessment center (AC) scheduled for the coming Saturday, as mentioned earlier. The administration lady from the supporting institute did tell me that I have not been shortlisted for the next AC session. I will get more details next week. Feels a little bit like in "Dancing with the stars". The jury puts you in the Top 5 list (in my case the IT Director I did talk to during the coffee break meeting), but the audience is not calling for you (I assume my result of the psychological test - BIP - Business-focused Inventory of Personality test) and you are out in the end. Hopefully I will get all results of the test to better understand the issue here, if there is any at all?

For the joy part I got the information from the headhunter that I will be invited for a job interview as soon as we can agree a date with the hiring company, will be somewhere early May timeframe. He called much earlier than initially expected (end of April), so my documents seem to be convincing Smile.

The last two days I was fully focused on Systemic and Business Coaching in my DTC education. As I mentioned earlier new to me and really a great experience. We had two live session role plays, 1st I was the observer and the coachee in the 2nd attempt. More details about coaching are e.g. at http://www.metasysteme-coaching.eu/english/home-page/ and https://www.mindtools.com/pages/main/newMN_TMM.htm once again. There are definitely much more pages, I just selected two randomly for you.

Finally in the mindset of "life-long-learning" and "steal with pride" some role models to look at: https://www.theladders.com/p/19327/most-influential-work-management-career-people 

Have a joyful and successful rest of your week!!
