Expatriation, Immigration...Deal with change in a smooth and positive way!
Expatriation : Turn CHANGE into OPPORTUNITY!
Change management :
Once gone through the stress and the hyperactivity of the move , you might face the first hollow of the “W” expats?
– Clarify your personal and professional goals
– Make yourself a professional action plan, especially if you already know the date of your departure
– Anticipate the next change or the return to your home country.

Especially if you have stopped working to follow your spouse, it can be a real ordeal.
Coaching can help you clarify your positioning in this adventure!

Coaching coaching will help you step back, analyze and deal with your emotions and cushion the ups and downs of the first months.
Yes, a new immigrant can be depressed:
The bottom of the wave can be deep with real doubts …
“All this for that …? “,
” Is it really worth it …? ”
Do not wait for a real down to talk with someone neutral …
Professional coaching: a way to put ideas in perspective, to reflect about them and to elaborate a plan to achieve your goals / ideas.
