This program will speed up the adjustment process so you and your family can begin to feel at home in your new culture more quickly. It will also help you gain important insights about your interactions with new colleagues at work, so that you can be more successful in your international assignment and, ultimately, your career.

We can conduct the training at your home or office, or, for an additional fee, the facilitator can provide a location for you. Our experience has shown that getting away from the office will help you focus more fully on the program.

Even if you speak the same language as the people in your new culture (such as someone relocating from Taiwan to Mainland China or from the U.S. to the U.K., or even Canada), there are many subtle differences and culture gaps which can present stumbling blocks to your adjustment if you are not aware of them.
