Are you euphoric about your recent or imminent move?
Great! Moving to a new country is enchanting and fun. The financial rewards make expatriation even more exciting: Lump sum, Salary, Relocation & Repatriation grants, Education, Housing Allowance, Medical, Travel you name it; and the exposure to a multitude of cultures. But hey, it’s not all rosy!
What next after the euphoria?
Reality sets in. Celebrating a posting is fine as soon as it is brief, and makes the way for lucidity about the upcoming adventure. To help with your pre-departure, arrival or repatriation, you’ll need a professional like me who’s been there too, for the right mindset for successful integration. Whether you are going for a long or short period, just bear in mind that an expatriate is not a tourist. Some expatriates, especially first-timers, do not think about preparing their relocation. An unplanned expatriation could be disastrous. My preparation method takes into consideration the composition of the family: single, married and/or with kids, and no member of the family is too little to be coached. Don’t make anyone feel like they’re just tagging along. It’ll backfire; as the hitch to integration could come from any member of the family.
Where to turn for help ?
I can help you. And because I’ve been there, I understand your fears, doubts, and anxiety; and believe that they should not cripple you, they’re surmountable.
