GRIP-training – The secret of smart working

It is strange that we have never really learned to work. GRIP-training explains step by step how you work smarter for more peace and space in your head. The result? You get space for your small and big dreams.

Jobtraining has developed the GRIP-training in collaboration with Rick Pastoor. Rick, formerly “inside boss” at Blendle, wrote the bestseller GRIP; The secret of smart working. In the training you learn to apply the smart GRIP method step by step to your work and life. The result? More peace and space for small and big dreams.


GRIP contains many useful tips to get your work organized. Great, because with me it was actually time for that.

I learned from the book GRIP that you can bring peace and direction to your work week. Instead of ticking everything off like a headless chicken, I now consciously choose where to put my time.
