CHALLENGED BY MOVING TO A NEW COUNTRY? LET'S TURN DIFFICULTY INTO OPPORTUNITY!
EXPAT & RELOCATION COACHING
Getting to know a little bit of my life story will help you understand my “WHY” when it comes to dedicating my professional life to supporting professionals living abroad to manage and leverage across cultural diversity in the workplace and at home.
If you find yourself in one or more of the following situations than you are in the right place.
SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO . . . ABROAD?
“And suddenly, you know… It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings”, Meister Eckhart rightfully said, plus it is scientifically proven that living abroad broadens perspective and enriches one’s life.
You might have an ambition to work or study abroad. The decision to leave your familiar lifestyle and take on an international assignment for the first time is one of the most important milestones in your life and career planning. The excitement of new opportunities ahead is intermingled with thoughts about the risks and doubts whether it’s the right move for you.
Through coaching combined with NLP techniques I can take you through a self discovery journey that will build the awareness and self-belief needed to find clarity and make the best decision.
READY TO JUMP INTO A NEW INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURE?
Moving abroad is about being inspired to take a leap of faith, about the excitement of a significant change to come but, most importantly, it’s about preparation. During our assessment session, we will establish your goals and priorities and what you aspire to achieve through engaging with an expat coach.
Your situation and needs are unique. Don’t expect one program that fits all. We will work together to identify the areas where you need most clarity and focus.
ARE YOU DEALING WITH SETTLING DOWN AND INTEGRATION IN YOUR HOST COUNTRY?
Relocating is not just a physical move. It’s a carousel of change that involves you and your family: away from your supportive network, facing language barriers, in a new city, environment and culture, you need to re-establish friendships and daily life routine that makes you and your family feel at home.
Resistance to change and cultural shock symptoms can make you feel unhappy and angry, resenting the loss of you previous life and ultimately and feeling stuck and not taking advantage of the new opportunities available around you.
Through coaching questioning techniques supplemented with a range of cultural change coaching tools, you will be able to identify what is working well in your new life, what you want to change and improve, and how to go about it. Coaching can help you move forward more quickly and effectively than if you were to go through it alone. The end result will be that it will help you run a successful and fulfilling expat life.
ARE YOU TIRED OF EXPAT LIFE AND WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SETTLE DOWN?
There comes a time in every expat’s life when it’s simply time to return home. Sometimes this is triggered by a milestone, such as the birth of a child or illness of an ageing parent. At other times, you’ve had enough of the expat lifestyle and it’s just time to settle down.
Using coaching techniques combined with NLP I can help you elicit your values and reset your priorities by identifying the resources needed to face the next move. Starting from current state, coaching can help you reach your desired state, help you define the next Goal and how to achieve it.
YOUR SPOUSE AND FAMILY, HOW ARE THEY EXPERIENCING THE EXPAT LIFE?
Experience proves that where the accompanying partner feels supported and happy, this ripples through the whole family and means that the person whose career prompted this move can concentrate on their new role without worrying about what’s happening at home.
Coaching can make the difference between surviving your relocation and embracing it. It can help everyone focus on what they can gain from this relocation. For younger members of the family, it may be the chance to make new friends or learn new things, while for the adults, it can be the opportunity to take on new work or develop new skills and knowledge.
That’s why I created The family coaching and mentoring programme, a custom made program which combines individual and family group sessions. Using coaching approach supported with relocation mentoring and cultural adjustment and cross cultural training, I can help the whole family go through the process of change to settle down and be able to gain the best out of this new life experience!
