Why I understand you
I was born in Latin America and moved first to England and then to Belgium. I know what it feels to start a life in a country where you don’t speak the language and the culture is totally different from where you come from. I have been through the cultural shock twice, and I can relate with the struggles of finding yourself in a country is not yours.
How Coaching helps
To the Expat Executive.
We will go deep in the understanding of your culture and how it compares to the local culture. Next, we will analyse which parts of your culture and values can and cannot be adjusted in order to work more effectively with your colleagues. We will evaluate the impact of acquiring new habits and behaviours in your persona. Finally, I will help you to design a strategy in order to create a cultural alliance, so your colleagues learn to accept parts of your culture/values you are not willing to negotiate.
To the expatriate spouse
Through a coaching process you will be able to overcome the feelings of being powerless and disconnected. You will be able to manage cultural shock and stop feeling guilty. We will also discuss about your dreams and passions, so you can find a way to make them a reality.
