Intercultural Support for Business Expatriates

Expatriate coaching is now being delivered by Willa Hallowell Coaching.

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.

One-on-one coaching is the best way to support expatriates as they strive to attain performance- and leadership-oriented objectives. It is a confidential face-to-face (or virtual) relationship in which mutual trust and self-disclosure are gradually deepened. The executive's personal goals and challenges become the single shared focus of coach and coachee.

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.

To the extent possible, we bring this same commitment to our training of expatriates in groups.

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

The executives and managers we've coached report significant increases in their ability, together with colleagues from different cultural backgrounds, to contribute to their company's bottom line.
