ASSIGNMENT LONDON combines executive coaching and relocation support to increase the return on investment from expatriate assignments, especially those along the New York-London corridor. Targeted to both the relocating executive and the spouse/partner, this service:
- Maximizes development gains from expat assignments
- Increases the employee’s ability to quickly contribute in the new position
- Reduces the risk of failed overseas placements
- Pre-Planning Support
A series of home country meetings conducted in-person or by phone. Tailored to specific needs, topics cover: goal setting, career planning, cultivating helpful attitudes, and realistic exploration of potential difficulties. May include the use of assessment tools.
- Executive Coaching
Coming at a key career inflection point, coaching helps the executive navigate the transition, get up to speed quickly and make the most of the assignment.
- Spouse/Partner Support
Using time effectively and enjoyably: career options, voluntary opportunities, organizations to join, etc, and how to make these happen. Social realities of life abroad.
- Cross-Cultural Effectiveness
Easing entry and doing business by helping with everything from local commercial customs to what things are called at the supermarket to alien concepts of real estate ownership.
- Exploration and Enjoyment
Finding out about and taking advantage of all the best that is London. Little-known gems. Great week-ends. European travel. Special events. Eye-openers. Opportunities you don’t want your people to miss.
The win-win result:
A richer experience for the employee and a more satisfied, capable contributor for the organization -- both while abroad and into the future.
