What is coaching in the first place?
I was never interested in coaching and was quite confused about the trending term “life coach”. However, I was always interested in self-improvement and was striving to become a better person let it be in work life or when it comes to health and travel. When I moved abroad and experienced the rollercoaster of change, I was in need of coaching like never before but did not know it. I had no idea, how coaching could help me, nor was aware that my thoughts have been circling around the same questions again and again without me changing my perspective to find a more suitable solution. Fast forward one year later I trained to become a professional coach, and I am convinced that coaching does really empower Expat Partners worldwide who paused their career to join their partner on his mission abroad.

In my expat partner career workbook, I have covered coaching in one chapter. Here is an abstract for you to download to get a better understand.
How the international coach federation defines coaching
“Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches can help people to improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.”
“Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe that the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.”
How I can help you
purpose & direction
Often moving abroad triggers us to question the goals in life we had so far. Book a 1:1 online coaching session with me and get access to all exercises & coaching material that will guide you along this journey.
Partner with me along your journey
Get access to my 5-Step-Onboarding journey with about mindset, cultural communication, re-branding, career planning & relationship struggles. Chose to either go along on your own or partner with me in 1:1 sessions.
If you happen to move to Chicago, we can happily do the coaching in person. However, in times of modern forms of communication, most of my sessions take place over the phone. You will decide whether you prefer a video or audio call. Both are working great!
A coaching session is 60 minutes long. Depending on the package you book we will do several 60-minute coaching sessions throughout your journey.
With each package, I will send along some exercises and workbooks. You are invited to take a look in advance to use it within our coaching session. However, you are in charge all the time throughout your personal coaching session, so you decide when to use what resource.
I am about to install a calendar to book right away. In the meantime, just send me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a good time for you considering the time difference.
Just shoot me a message to email@example.com and I will get back to you 🙂
