Coaching & Training
For the relocating executive or accompanying expat partner. Coaching is an incredibly powerful tool to help navigate the emotional and practical demands of an international transition. You determine the focus of each session – be it developing a strategy for the new professional role or figuring out how to be happy in the new country. This is your chance to take control of your expat experience with a qualified coach who is familiar with intercultural and expat challenges. Sessions can be in person or by Skype, stand-alone or as an ideal follow-up to Expatriate Transition Training.
Expatriate Transition Training
An opportunity to look beyond the practicalities of a relocation and to reflect on potential adjustment challenges from a personal, professional and cultural perspective. Relevant to executives and expat accompanying partners, as well as first-time and experienced international assignees. You can be relocating to or from anywhere, as this is not a country-specific training – this is an introduction to key transition issues and a chance to discuss, strategise, minimise risk and identify solutions proactively with an experienced professional.
British Culture Training
Presentations for visiting delegations and groups, as well as private programmes for executives and families relocating to the UK. From one hour to two days in person or by Skype. We introduce you to the business and social culture of the UK, including values, behaviours and etiquettes. This is your chance to ask a local in total confidence and to decode situations you are already experiencing. However similar your culture may seem, make sure you or your employees know how to recognise the subtleties.
Cultural Awareness Training
A practical introduction to intercultural communication for any company who has multicultural teams or international clients. Already and increasingly a core skill of international business, cultural awareness is also a key aspect of diversity. What is attributed to personality is often cultural. Help your employees to have greater tolerance and flexibility in their approach. Build their intercultural competency and make sure that they know what to be aware of when dealing with other nationalities.
