Intercultural training and support for international assignees

International assignments are costly for organisations and can make or break an individual's career. A successful overseas assignment can provide individuals with the skills, expertise and network to help them step into a senior global leadership role. However, if mistakes are made in the early days, the individual's and the organisation's reputation can be damaged. We provide a range of intercultural training, coaching and support to help international assignees make the most of their experience; whether new graduates on short overseas rotations, project workers or long term assignees and their families.

Pre-departure preparation

From indepth one or two day face-to-face training to shorter virtual consultations or coaching programmes, we help assignees to prepare for the culture shock of moving their lives overseas and to develop practical skills and strategies to make the right impression and overcome the challenges of their first days and weeks in their new role.

Incountry support

Culture shock sometimes only sets in several weeks or months after arrival and only then are assignees confronted with unexpected challenges or uncertainty. Regular support from an intercultural trainer or coach can provide the space to discuss complex situations or prepare for important events.

Returning home

Returning home is often just as challenging as embarking on an international assignment yet many neglect organisations neglect to support their expatriates through the repatriation process. When the time comes to return home after a long stay overseas, our repatriation specialists can help assignees to prepare for going home.
