We help expatriate managers with high quality programs to raise their cultural and self awareness, preparing them to live and work in host foreign countries.

 

Consulting and Coaching

 

HR McKinsey research shows that expatriate assignments often do not succeed because of the couple or the family fail to make the adjustments required when living in a foreign cultural setting. COMPASS offers coaching for expatriate spouses and couples before and during their assignment. Our goal is to raise personal and cultural awareness and assist in the adjustments necessary to live and work in a foreign country. We offer solutions which will improve cross-cultural relationships by offering instruction in:

  • How cultural differences affect verbal and non-verbal communications
  • How to reach successful conclusions in business matters
  • Defining country specific business and societal behaviour norms
  • Explaining cultural norms regarding business commitments and appointments
  • Learning to define an “agreement” in your cultural setting.
