  • 3. 1. Open minded.
    Inspiring individuals open to new ideas and new ways of thinking and approaching situations to bridge “cultural divides” are ideal for cross-cultural mentoring. In the process of helping you sort things out, we do a lot of brainstorming and testing out ideas. Together, we collect a lot of ideas, helping you
    think and choose the best
    ones that suit you. From
    these ideas, we create
    goals, action plans and a
    schedule of accountability
    to help you to realize
    success.

  • 4. 2. Self-driven and motivated for success and self-improvement.
    Though I am always in your corner, your best cheerleader, I know you are the one who’s responsible for your life. I respect that you will make the best decisions for yourself and be able to initiate your action plans, realize your own goals and ultimately be responsible for your success.

  • 5. 3. Not afraid to try something different, new and possibly uncomfortable to create success and comfort abroad.
    When we try new things in a new environment, we have to be willing to ‘look a little foolish’. Think about little kids learning to walk and talk. They take so many risks to walk and talk. They make a lot of mistakes, but they don’t let it get them down. They keep trying until they can walk and talk like the rest of us. They aren’t afraid to look foolish and keep trying even after ‘failures’ to be successful. When we come into a new culture, parts of us become like ‘little kids’. We have to learn new things that may be- well often are- uncomfortable. These new things make us feel off-balance, maybe even inadequate, and like a kid again. It’s both refreshing and scary to be in this position. These are the times of life that are turning points. I am here to help you keep on track so that you can keep moving forward; making the discomfort of cultural adjustment feel natural and new behaviors not feel so awkward but like second nature.

  • 6. 4. Respectful of themselves. Respectful of me. Respectful of the process.
    Going through the process of cultural adjustment can be rewarding, but it can also be extremely challenging on many fronts- physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It’s a test of our resilience and our strength. It brings out our best and sometimes, our worst qualities. It can help us ‘feel’ life more intensely than we ever have before. Since we experience such a range of emotions during this transition, we can be hard on ourselves and others. Having respect for yourself- learning to understand your strengths and limitations is imperative. Respecting ourselves radiates out respect for those close to us, others and the experiences that we live through. Sometimes we want overnight success; but this is not usually possible. It takes time; there is a process to every ‘overnight success’.

  • 7. Coaching with me, you can take part in the ‘Life Purpose Process’- a seven step process that helps you take inventory of different aspects of your life to create harmony and peace with your surroundings and within yourself. When we become gentler on ourselves, things can come with more ease than we ever
    imagined. I have also experienced this
    myself being coached through the Life
    Purpose Process and I am honored to
    share this with you!
