At that point I realised that in order for Executives be successful on a foreign assignment they needed to have ﬁrstly their basic needs established such as housing, schooling, medical, insurance before they were a) able to focus on the job and b) become more culturally aware in terms on how best to lead a diverse team.
Without the basics in place there was no hope that these individuals and their families would be settled enough to start the journey towards embracing the new experience, performing at work and thriving.
In HR and Recruiting, coaching these executives had been a natural part of my role. I was well versed in helping new leaders and their families get up and running in their new roles abroad and saw a demand for more support for these senior executives.
I furthered my coaching training through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) an International Coaching Federation accredited program, a gold standard for coaching.
Now I seamlessly combine my leadership expertise, expat experience and coaching credentials to help other executive expats thrive during transitions with the drive and energy to achieve new heights of success without the overwhelm.
My learning journey never stops as I continue to rack up multiple certiﬁcation and training hours around, habit building, effective communication, engagement and leadership.
Today I am coaching clients from companies including Etihad Aviation Group, Barclays Bank, and emerging business owners to name a few.
I’m also speaking and running workshops on various leadership topics. You can ﬁnd out more here
