Coaching expatriates and their families in transition

According to a study by Global Relocation Trends, companies and organizations lose 52% of their employees within the first two years of returning home. The reasons for this are numerous. Yet, most employee absences and layoffs could be avoided through appropriate coaching and training during their time abroad and upon reintegration home, which must also include the accompanying family. The cost of rehiring far outweighs that of appropriate intervention to retain an employer needing additional support during a difficult phase or incident

FOCUS: Employee assistance in international contexts

Short-term coaching, intercultural coaching, and psychological counseling to strengthen resources and resilience

A new culture, a new position, working dynamics with incompatible expectations, interests and leadership styles, stressful living and working environments, personality mismatches, precarious security conditions, and family stressors – these are just some of the challenges facing professionals and executives when working abroad. The professional and personal requirements are difficult to anticipate until landing in the host country. When navigating integration and times of change, an independent, objective coach or mentor is a valuable resource.

Coaching to develop personal potential, competence and resilience

Motivated, self-aware and accountable employees and managers who collaborate and can remain focused in a challenge are assets to an organization. Emotional and social intelligence can be learned.

We support your organization to strengthen personal agency among employees to be able to confidently and assertively navigate international operations.

FOCUS: Professional development – international and intercultural competence and leadership

Coaching and training for effective leadership across cultures and borders

What does it mean to be an effective leader? How to create working environments where employees feel psychologically safe, even in phases of external crises or high-volume workloads. What do intercultural teams need from their leaders? What qualities and core competencies do managers and team leaders need in a foreign setting? How can executives from different cultures successfully work together?

This program targets internationally engaged executives, leaders of intercultural teams, and multinational management teams to offer coaching and education that support successful leadership and collaboration competence under very complex, sometimes competitive, conditions.

FOCUS: Harnessing diversity and intercultural collaboration

Team coaching, moderation, conflict resolution, trust building, debriefing

Team coaching, moderation, conflict resolution, trust building, debriefing
For a group of strangers to collaborate productively, rapport and trust must be built. Interpersonal dynamics influence a team’s performance and its resilience to crises. What do intercultural teams need from each other to build psychological safety and collaborate effectively? How can teams adjust to a new expatriate and or local hire? How to engage with local partners and actors?

Culturally sensitive team facilitation and intercultural coaching are important steps to building trust and safety to harness the limitless potential that a diverse team offers.

Organizations and employees will benefit from:

Team facilitation, (local) context-specific coaching, and conflict resolution are well-known tools to support individual team members and interactions. Respectful communication, multidirectional feedback, clear goals, and psychological safety are essential foundations. A resilient team becomes an autonomous driver of productivity that can also withstand and overcome setbacks and crises.

Focus: Transitioning by change process
facilitation and coaching

Organizations and teams are regularly undergoing change and adjustments, even more so in international contexts. Integrating new team members and projects, redirecting vision or resources, and adapting protocol are important but costly. Although organizations and projects benefit greatly from the multi-perspectivity that a diverse team brings, intercultural team dynamics can be conflictual and prone to misunderstandings. An independent moderator is an essential resource in change management and team integration processes.

Organizations and employees will benefit from:

Active guidance by impartial, internationally experienced consultants in shaping phases of change. We work with organizations to reassure personnel during process change management, as well as identify areas of team resistance and project development gaps that threaten outcome achievement.

Management and team members feel part of an appreciative and results-oriented working environment.

Teams demonstrate resilience and an ability to withstand periods of stress.
