Why career coaching for expats?

Relocation to a new country can affect your own career in multiple ways. 

Perhaps you are struggling with finding a job in your field. Perhaps the transition has made you second guess your plans for your career. Maybe you have a great idea for a business but don’t quite know to proceed. Or perhaps you are wondering whether you need to get back to school and start completely over in a completely new field.

If you feel indecisive or just unsure how to proceed and what direction to choose in your professional life, our career coaching can help you.

In our career coaching program:

We help you
  • deepen your self-awareness;
  • explore how your different qualities can best be applied professionally; 
  • choose a career path you want to pursue; and 
  • support you in that path.

You will
  • assess your interests, skills, strengths, and lifestyle and work values;
  • generate career options for yourself;
  • determine which one you want to pursue; 
  • chart out the way you need to do that; 
  • map out the individual steps along the way and, most importantly,
  • start taking those steps.

We, in turn, will
  • ask you questions that will facilitate those processes;
  • provide you will tools and strategies you can use to explore yourself and your options;
  • keep you accountable to yourself; and 
  • provide support and encouragement.

and by the end of your coaching journey you will have

  • identified the career path you want to pursue;
  • set up the steps to get where you want to go;
  • traveled a significant part of that journey; and most of all
  • you have gained clarity and direction in your career.

Book your free placement session with Minna

The purpose of the free placement session is for you to make sure that Minna is the right coach for you.

During our placement session, we go over our coaching program with you so that you can decide whether our program is for you.

We discuss the content of the program, Minna's coaching fee, the length of the program, our mutual expectations for it, etc.

Minna will also describe her coaching approach.

All of this allows you to determine whether you want Minna to be your coach and whether this program is for you. It also allows Minna to determine whether your goal for coaching is something that Minna can help you with.

If you would like to book a free placement session to see whether our program is for you, send Minna a note via the form below. She will get back to you as soon as possible.
