Expat Optimizer Coaching Program
"I relocated from Paris, France to Brisbane, Australia in 2014. This was a career opportunity provided by my Company, a worldwide insurer, and I was ready to take on a new professional challenge.
Even so expatriation is for some synonymous to a fantastic experience by default, it comes with challenges both personal and professional, it challenges your resilience away from home, while you need to adapt to more than just to a new role.
Soon after my arrival, I started the Expat Optimizer Coaching Program led by David Morley. As the only expat at that time in my part of the company, I was provided with support to ease my adaptation into a new environment.
Supported by tools and thanks to his own experience, David helped me to manage to quickly get an understanding of differences in work culture in my host country and therefore adapt faster, then I’ve been provided support to build more relationships and, at last but not least, be coached to be better at leading a multi-cultural team.
I also personally enjoyed the range and the flexibility of the program: fully tailored-made, to be able to tackle personal situations, leadership styles and cross-cultural differences in a same session.
18 months after my relocation, I believe that this coaching program had definitely helped to make this expatriation successful."
