63 Killer Questions

3 Key messages

1 unique coaching group and one-on-one methodology

1 Ikigai®


Student version

This is the special Student edition of Ikigai. Again with 63 killer questions, but now fully focused on the age group of students. This version of Ikigai game is best played with students between 17 - 25 years old. Students need to be able to reflect on themselves and their direction in order to achieve the best results. 

This Student version can be played in larger Student groups. In this format, our Ikigai Coaches orchestrate the group process between the students. Of course the game can also be played one-on-one with Client Students.



Ikigai® coaching program is unique. It's a structured program, offering deep reflection. No unpractical high level dreaming. A revolutionary different career tool, designed for application in real life.

It honors the personality of students. Not putting people in boxes or overly simplifying them into colors. Students experience the Ikigai approach as very personalized. Because it is! It's tailored to their individual needs.



We developed this tool, inspired on the way the island people from Okinawa lead their lives. Okinawans each embrace their own ikigai, which means: sense of purpose in life. An ikigai gives their lives purpose. It's a clear reason to begin each day.

IKIGAI® coaching program structures the program. It asks the relevant questions. Taking into account preferences, talents, skills and the application in a market with disruption, digitization and sustainability. At the same time, is honors the craft of the Ikigai Coach to blend in with the tool.

Ikigai is built on research & two decades of deep coaching experience

  • The questions are built based on the research from the Okinawa Research Center for Longevity Study. Established in 1975, the OCS and its over 1000 participants have made important contributions to understanding the aging process and longevity. And a conclusion of the research is: knowing your Ikigai helps you to increase your chances for a long and meaningful life. So, never retire!
  • We combined this research with our 25 year experience in coaching. Throughout the years, we have coached thousands of individuals through change. 


Game design & validity

  • In the development phase, we tested the game with our test panel. The panelists were hand-picked and we choose experienced and less experienced coaches to work with the first versions. Based on their feedback, we tuned our questions, fine tuned the methodologies to achieve face validity.
  • When the first version was ready, we tested it with clients. One-on-one and in small groups of up to four people.
  • We have designed a closed feedback loop for continuous improvement. We constantly make newer versions based on the feedback we get.



      You can use Ikigai at multiple crossroads during students their professional life. The Ikigai process provides a business opportunity to take this journey together with your client for many years.
