Intercultural Coaching

violin-tuning-280x280I coach global executives, faculty, scholars, expatriates — and their spouses — who want to more effectively transition to a new culture and country. My focus is to support these individuals to create a happier, more fulfilling life in their new land. Specifically, I help them to create positive, lasting change in areas that deeply matter to them and have been impacted by their relocation: career, family, and relationships.

I know how difficult it can be to come to a new country, to speak a foreign language, and to have to recreate your career and life all over again. Yet I also know how powerful a coaching relationship can be to smooth that transition, to help individuals create the life they want, and ultimately to thrive.

Living abroad is a powerful opportunity for significant personal and professional growth. Despite the confusion and frustration common to global transitions, these times can also trigger increased self-understanding and even transformation. My work empowers people to use their internal and external challenges as fuel for their own development.

This typically results in greater peace, clarity, and self-confidence, as well as feeling more alive, present, and engaged with the world. As my clients change, their positive shifts tend to ripple through their families and work, and this can lead to more satisfying relationships with all those they care about.

Who is this coaching for?

  • Global executives and their spouses transitioning to a new culture
  • Executives managing multicultural teams
  • International faculty and scholars, expatriates, and their spouses
  • Spouses juggling parenting and career development in a new country
  • Intercultural couples or single parents with multicultural and bilingual children
  • Prospective parents who are adopting or have an older child from a foreign country

Common challenges you may be facing:

  • Are you experiencing overwhelming stress in your international assignment? Do you find yourself juggling getting the family settled and the need for high performance at work?
  • Are you traveling with your spouse to a foreign country? Have you left a job behind and want to reinvent your career?
  • Do you miss the communities you were part of, feel lonely, and want to create deeper friendships beyond expat circles?
  • Do you feel misunderstood by people around you despite, speaking the foreign language? Are you worried about offending or alienating others?
  • Do you want increased self-confidence in speaking a foreign language?
  • Is your new supervisor from a different culture than yours, and are you both experiencing intercultural communication challenges?
  • Do you want to be more effective working with multicultural teams?
  • Are your children behaving differently in a way that makes you wonder about their physical and emotional well-being in the new country?
  • Do you notice that work takes most of your time, your physical body is out of balance, and you don’t know how to achieve the balance you want?
  • Would you like to spend less time worrying about how to act and enjoy your experience of living abroad more fully and easily?

Although there are several other coaching approaches that call themselves “Integral”, ICC’s Coaching method is the very first coaching methodology we’ve ever seen that explicitly honors and includes the full spectrum of human development — which is to say that it is the very first coaching program that fully honors and includes all of you: all of your strengths, all of your weaknesses, all of your shadows, all of your experiences, and all of your untapped potentials …
