GNW Global Nomad's World

A world without boundaries

Flourish wherever you are

Crossing Cultures can be an amazing experience but is also a significant challenge.The circumstances and locations of that journey can be very different but the psychological experience and cycle of transition can be very similar. 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 terms like “global nomad”, “ TCK - Third Culture Kid/Adult” and “Cross Cultural Kid/Adult”, feel understood. We are here to support that journey. We very much believe that a commonality amongst all these different cultures, genders and communities is the right to play sports. As Albert Einstein, famously quoted” Play is the Highest Form of Research”; all people have the right to grow and learn through playing sports.

Psychology and Coaching

Consulting sessions for individuals before, during and after the transition

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.

Expat Partner Coaching

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.

Repatriation support

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.

Cross cultural talks, workshops and seminars for organizations

We will introduce the most important terms, benefits and challenges for anyone who cross cultures, suitable for both organizations, families and individuals What are the advantages and challenges of living a cross cultural life? How does it shape our identity? What does it have to do with loss and grief? How do you answer the question : Where are you from?
