Having spent many years abroad on numerous occasions and in various different work environments, I am well aware of what it means to adjust to a change and to reintegrate into one's professional setting. As a result of my roles both, as a consultant and as an employee, I am accustomed to the task of providing consulting services to expatriates, inpatriates and executives in a new culture and position. My own experience, has intimately acquainted me with the areas of conflict, which executives may face in changing situations. I know too, how having "arrived" in a new workplace feels when done successfully; the feeling of finding balance in a challenging work environment while being personally present in the new leadership role.
