Expat-Spouse Workshop

Calling out to all HR Professional

 

For a successful relocation process, the partners of your employees are the key - and the number one reason for its failure. Let's not forget that most top qualified employees bring with them their qualified partners, who were used to work while the children are taken care of.  For this reason it is necessary to inform the arriving families in advance, and offer a matching support in order to ensure an ideal integration and prevent a culture shock. With this the relocation process will be a success for your company, and your employees will remain loyal to you. Personal coaching for spouses or workshops for your company, I support you and your team with tailor made solutions "based in Switzerland - active globally"


Personal or Online Coaching for Spouses

A new beginning in a foreign country requires courage, a positive attitude, and a guiding hand through the journey. While some of the spouses find a job quite easily, others need to re-invent themselves, find unfulfilled goals, and think out of the box in order to make their stay an unforgettable experience rather than an ongoing nightmare. That’s where I come in. While your new staff members can fully focus on their job, I offer personal coaching sessions to their spouses. Living abroad can be a lonely, isolating experience sometimes. This is why I launched this coaching services and workshops for companies. It’s good to have someone who accompanies, motivates, encourages and sometimes challenges them on their journey so they can find their place as well – a win-win situation for everyone involved in this process


The Challenge of a Spouse

 

“The challenge of a spouse”

 

Boxes are unpacked, partner is at work, kids at school - now what ?

 

The moment has come to put your passion into action!

 

Relocation is among the TOP-5 most stressful situations you can experience across a lifespan. Its more than physical exhaustion and logistics, it’s also about leaving places and loved once behind. You become invested, vulnerable and dependant. And certainly, do not mix up traveling with relocating
