Intercultural Training for Business Expatriates

Since the mid-1990s, GROVEWELL has been perfecting a method for enhancing the performance of executives, managers, and professionals involved in business worldwide, including expatriates.

Our most effective method involves one-on-one coaching, described below. But a great deal of what we’ve developed for our coaching approach is transferrable to the expatriate training room.

COACHING FOR GLOBAL ADVANTAGE is the name for our performance- and leadership-oriented approach. It unites the focus on individual needs of the executive coaching field with the understanding of the "how" of cultural competency of the intercultural consulting field.

Why is one-on-one coaching the best way to attain performance- and leadership-oriented objectives? Coaching has the advantage of being a confidential face-to-face relationship in which mutual trust is gradually deepened and self-disclosure is gradually broadened, thus allowing the coachee's deep performance- and leadership-improvement goals to become the focus.

Our coach is flexibly attuned to the coachee as an individual with needs and goals, and as a bearer of his or her own native culture. Our coach takes into account the coachee’s contexts of business unit, specific assignment, community, family, personality, and unique challenges.

The premise of all GROVEWELL's work with expats can be expressed in a single question:
"How can this individual best be supported, here, to regain peak performance and leadership?"
