‘Werkgevers in de Sport’ (WOS) is an employers' association that represent the interests of sports federations, associations and umbrella organisations in sport in the broad field of labor relations. In cooperation with Fanbased, an individual program has been developed focused on strengthening personal development, leadership and entrepreneurship for employees in sport.


As a knowledge hub, the WOS approached us to develop a program aimed at the sustainable employability of employees in sport. They were specifically looking for an organisation that knows the world of sports and is able to make a link with scientific knowledge. The program is focused on strengthening personal development, leadership and entrepreneurship of all employees in sport. Themes that have an enormous added value for every professional in their career development.

Action plan

The individual program was developed based on the various issues and needs from the industry. Anyone with a career in sports, regardless of whether you are in a sports association, club or other organisation could enroll in the program. Participants are divided into groups, complete in-depth individual coaching and participate in multiple group sessions. Through three modules, participants gain insights into their natural competencies, how to build a winning team, and how to utilize this to make an impact in your organisation. The experiences and knowledge from the program are translated through a personal presentation into concrete actions in their own organisation.


Completing the individual program contributes to:


  • Be able to use competencies in a targeted manner to achieve goals more effectively
  • Ability to deal effectively with stressful situations
  • Use practical tools to be able to change your own behaviour
  • Create a clear vision on your growth in the team and the organisation
  • Consciously improve your vitality
  • Understand and embrace the mindset to continuously develop yourself
    and embrace change (the athlete mindset)


  • Present your personal growth ambition to all your key stakeholders
  • Start to live your personal growth accelerator
  • Add your growth goals to your personal targets
  • Check your progress after three months with your Fanbased coach
