A driving force in my desire to live overseas is my lifelong fascination with cultural differences. Culture is much more than the clothes we wear and the food we eat. It is at the heart of what we value and how we see the world.
International life provides countless opportunities to explore other cultures and examine your own. However, new insights don’t always happen by themselves. It takes exploration and reflection to fully understand when cultural differences are at work and to appreciate the richness they bring to life.
I am a certified trainer of “Crossing Cultures with Competence” through The Interchange Institute. Contact me to discuss cultural training, orientation to new host countries and individual or group sessions on culture shock and transition.
