Do you want to prepare yourself for managing in a new country? Or do you need to resolve a conflict that involves cultural differences? Intercultural coaching, advice and counseling will ensure that you reach your goal.
Intercultural executive coaching is for you if you work as an executive, a leader or a project manager in a global setting – and need some advice about a global or culture-related challenge.
Your challenges may be big or small, and your goals short- or long-term. You might need help breaking old habits or need to learn something completely new. It is up to you. You set the agenda for the coaching programme – and we’ll help you achieve your goal.
An intercultural executive coaching programme is an individual programme that focuses on creating the results that you want.
There are times when it’s best to use traditional coaching to find the solution to a challenge, where we help you find the answers yourself. There are other times when you might prefer individual training, mentoring and decisive counseling – or a mixture of all three. It all depends on what you want the programme to achieve.
We use the methods and tools that are needed to create a programme that’s really going to get things moving.
Typically, an intercultural executive coaching programme proceeds as follows:
First, we clarify the objectives of the coaching programme with you and/or the relevant parties in your organization.
Then we define the framework of the programme on this basis. Intercultural executive coaching can be anything from a single 3-hour coaching session to an ongoing programme lasting 6-12 months, and we can combine coaching with targeted training, mentoring and specialist advice.
You can be coached face-to-face or by phone/Skype.
We select coaches who best match the programme's objectives and content. We can include additional coaches or trainers who can contribute country- or culture-specific expertise if required.
Expect to meet coaches and trainers who are experienced, who know the tools inside out, who can meet you at eye level, and who have the courage to challenge you. Meet some of them here.
You and the coach start by diving into what you want to get out of the programme while aligning expectations.
We bring your challenges into focus during the coaching, and include relevant case studies, techniques, tools and exercises that can move you forward.
If the programme takes place over a longer period of time, you’ll work on breaking old habits that were holding you back and put new techniques and methods into practice in between sessions.
We round off the programme by taking stock of how far you've come – and discuss how you can continue progressing from here.
It really inspired me that Annette had so much hands-on experience with cultural differences between Denmark and China. When I mentioned my challenges with the meetings in Denmark, she could refer to similar situations in other Danish companies working in China.
