Expat Transition Training

The first and most pressing thoughts that come to mind for most families when considering a move overseas is securing a visa, finding the perfect new home, making sure everything is packed & shipped to the new place, and saying goodbye to friends & loved ones. Life after the move is barely considered.

Expat transition training is the next step after making sure that your practical securities are taken care of, letting you push forward to increase the foundational well-being of yourself and your family

My expat transition training program is especially designed to ready you with skills necessary to guarantee success while working overseas. The easiest way to grasp what our training encompasses is to think of it as an assessment of the risk factors, strategies, and personal strengths within the process of moving and adapting to a foreign environment. Armed with these practical insights and projections, it becomes much easier to adjust to your new country, co-workers, friends & local customs.
