Description

Adapt to Others and Succeed in Your Integration

The key to success in a multicultural environment lies in the ability to understand your own intercultural skills, rather than simply trying to mimic supposedly “good” attitudes. Particularly for expatriate candidates, we suggest discovering your true relationship with interculturality, without judgment, and how to live abroad not as “should” but as “you can based on your own personality.”

Our intercultural coaching offers a realistic and practical approach, not just good feelings.

Our approach to intercultural coaching aims to foster a deep understanding of oneself, others, and the intercultural environment in which we operate. We emphasize the importance of developing intercultural awareness to realize our full potential as individuals capable of navigating effectively and harmoniously in multicultural contexts.

Our approach is based on a combination of concepts from anthropology, sociology, and psychology as well as a variety of recognized tests. We offer personalized guidance that allows participants to explore their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that impact their intercultural relationships.

We help our clients understand their own motivations and develop the necessary skills to live with others, participate in, or effectively lead intercultural teams.
