What Can a Cross-Cultural Coach Do To Help Me?

What a cross-cultural strategist does and doesn't do?


A Cross-Cultural Strategist DOES:
Can Cross Cultural Coaching Really Help Me?
  • Helps you create ideas and solutions. You are in charge of deciding which path (decision) to take. 
  • Helps you keep on track, by providing accountability for your decisions.
  • Keep all your information confidential (doesn't tell anyone)
  • Interview preparation and career strategy 
  • Review, understand and apply solutions for better cross-cultural business interactions 
  • Helps you work more effectively on diverse, international, dispersed teams 
  • Works to help you prepare more compelling presentations and meetings for offshore and onsite success 
  • Prepares you and your team for offshore client visits 
  • Prepares you and your team for international travel, onsite business interactions and life in the U.S.A. 
A Cross-Cultural Strategist DOESN'T:
  • Tell you what to do (Give advice) 
  • Make decisions for you 
  • Physically get you ready to move (Pack, logistics, etc.) 
  • Apply for visas, prepare immigration paperwork 
  • Gossip or give away your information 
  • Find you a job, secure a US visa
