Flourish wherever you are
These sessions can be offered to reinforce and support the transition to a new destination. The sessions provide an opportunity to discuss the expected challenges and set goals to work through the adaptation process and increase success in the new environment.
In many instances, it is the most critical component in the success of an overseas assignment. Coaching sessions can provide the possibility to change the expected challenges into opportunities. Effective adaptations for partners are more likely to succeed when there is knowledge of the possible challenges and a meaningful plan for personal growth.
One of the most unspoken challenges of the nomad life is the moment that many expats fear, returning to their home country, and being left out of the supportive expat bubble.
We will introduce the most important terms and challenges for Global Nomads, suitable for both organisations and families before relocation. In today’s world, where collaborations are made across the world and most of our communication takes place virtually, how do we work effectively in the face of cross-cultural complexity? How do we adjust to the changing reality?
Individuals are different, families are different, and organisations have different missions and goals; as do the communities they want to be and belong to. Therefore it is important for this organizations to identify and analyse the needs and the nature of a global assignment, and only after this analyse, to create the right plan for the families and individuals. When organisations and individuals are sharing the same knowledge, they can communicate with a common language. As David C. Pollock and Ruth E. Van Reken suggested in their pioneering book: “Third Culture Kids, Growing Up Among Worlds”, those who are introduced to the terms “global nomad” and “third culture kid” feel understood and protected. We believe that both the organisation and the individual can benefit from having a solid understanding of what living overseas means. When corporate or organisational decisions are made with a common understanding of these challenges, families feel protected and cared for. This enables the individuals to work to their full potential and help the organisation achieve its goals.
