Why transition coaching?

No matter how familiar you are with global mobility, the transition to a completely new country always brings with it unexpected challenges. 

They might be as mundane as not finding the ingredients for your favorite type of breakfast. Or maybe the whole rhythm of life in your new home country throws you off the loop, and you don’t know what to make of it and how to adjust to it.  

No matter the size of the challenges, they can feel overwhelming, frustrating, or even scary. They can make you feel lost and off-balance. 

This is natural since to some extent our understanding of ourselves is informed by the context we are in. When that context changes we have to adjust our understanding of ourselves as well. While that can be scary, it also presents us with the possibility to reinvent our lives. We can facilitate that reinvention through our transition coaching. 

This is what our transition coaching offers.

Our transition coaching program:

We help you
  • identify or reconnect with what is important to you;
  • find ways to make that into a reality in your life in your new home country; and 
  • support you in that path.

You will
  • assess where you currently are;
  • determine where you want to go; 
  • chart out the way you need to travel to get there; 
  • map out the individual steps along that journey and, most importantly,
  • start taking those steps.

We, in turn, will
  • ask you questions that will facilitate those processes;
  • keep you accountable to yourself; and 
  • provide support and encouragement along your journey.

and by the end of your coaching journey you will have

  • realized what type of life you want to build for yourself in your new home country;
  • identified the strategies with which you can make that happen;
  • taken significant steps towards your re-invented life; and
  • been finally able to clear the fog and confusion so often associated with such large life-transitions.

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.
