Cross-Cultural Coaching

You might find yourself in a new country for work or study, for a shorter or longer period of time, and you might be looking to faster integrate into your new environment. 


You might want to gain the skills needed to relate effectively with people from different backgrounds and different cultural groups in your own backyard.


In our multicultural world it is important to have the ability to relate and work effectively with people from different cultural backgrounds and to adjust our behavior to the cultural differences.


During our cross-cultural coaching sessions we will work to successfully integrate you into a new cultural environment within or across countries. We will increase your awareness, manage your expectations, calibrate your rhythm, and focus on your goals in order to fully enjoy this experience.

How we will work together

General

To see behavioral change and results you should commit to several sessions depending on your goals and desire to change (1 month, 3 months and 6 months packages available). However I don’t require any long term commitments and you decide what works best for you. You can get some value from a single coaching session but most probably your life will not change significantly after that. The real benefit of hiring a coach is experienced through an ongoing relationship aimed at achieving your goals. Having a personal coach provides a relationship built on trust and openness that allows safe exploration of difficult topics and supports risk-taking in trying new behaviors. 


Process

Sessions are one hour long and can be face to face, by video, or by phone depending on your preference and location. You would complete an assessment prior of the first session and during our coaching engagement you will receive tools that will help you accomplish your goals. Clients can expect a variety of practices, reflections, readings and exercises. 


In between session we will stay connected as needed with regular touch points to keep momentum and celebrate successes. 


I'll customize a process and plan to support you and help you reach your goals. Each of my clients receives a lot of my attention besides the session itself as I believe that building a quality partnership will benefit the client’s ultimate goal. 


Included

My coaching engagements include: 

  • Free 30 min introductory session. 
  • One-on-one coaching sessions (single session or packages). 
  • Co-create an individualized working plan. 
  • In-between session calls, emails, or texts to support as needed immediate challenges or share a success. 
  • Assignments between sessions designed to create action and foster insight. 


While I am located in U.S., I work with clients from all over the world via phone and video conferencing. If you want to make (faster) progress towards your goals, work hard, and explore new grounds, I would say we are probably a good fit!
