Stacks Image 8

Are you on or starting an international assignment and are:

  • uncertain that the taking the job abroad was/is the right choice?
  • unclear how to start the assignment off to set you up for success?
  • struggling to perform in your new role, work environment or culture?
  • feeling disconnected and/or not supported by the home office?
  • unsure how to leverage your work abroad to reach your career goals?


Or are you recently returned from abroad and frustrated
in a job that doesn't use the skills and experience you've gained overseas?

I provide customized programs designed to address the challenges and opportunities international assignments present, including:
  • understanding international assignment configurations and how to position yourself for them
  • how to negotiate for a compensation package that reflects the value you offer
  • creating a plan for success to guide you before, during and/or after your assignment abroad
  • how to deal with cultural differences and setting yourself up for success in your new role
  • how to insure your time working abroad will support your international career goals
  • how to avoid or deal with the challenges faced by those recently returned from work abroad

The changing world of international assignments and international careers are creating more challenges than I could ever list. These are just some areas where I can provide support.
