  • 2. What is a cross-cultural coach? 2 A cross-cultural coach helps you explore different aspects of yourself and your life to come up with custom-fit solutions to help you live your best life anywhere in the world! http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys Image: Courtesy, Life Purpose Institute
  • 3. Well… what’s that really mean? Let me explain that by detailing who I help first, then how I help them. 3 Photo credit- Chelsi-Photos cc @ flickr http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys
  • 4. If you answer yes to any of these three questions, you are one step closer to discovering your answers!

(If yes, skip to slide 6.) Do you need help with a bicultural, interfaith or cross-cultural relationship? (If yes, skip to slide 7.) 4 http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys
  • 5. Moving to Another Country: Do you relate to any of these: “How can I possibly move abroad? How can I move away from everything and everyone I know and love? I need help making this decision!” Do you need help “Preplanning”? “How can I live in this country? Being a foreigner here is so hard. Coping with daily life is so difficult. Everything is so mysterious and magical, but I feel overwhelmed and don’t know what to do!” Do you need help “Facing Culture Shock”? “I love this new country and am considering changing my citizenship. Will I lose my identity?” Do you want to explore “Changing Citizenship”? “I thought if I went back home things would be like they were before. Now everything seems foreign to me. Why don’t I relate to my family and friends like I used to? Why doesn’t “home” feel as comfortable as it used to be?” Do you need help with “Reverse Culture Shock”?

I could speak English very well at home. How come people in America don’t understand me? Why can’t I understand Americans? People talk so fast and their accentCourtesy, Microsoft Clip Art
  • 7. Are you in a cross-cultural or interfaith relationship? Do you relate to this- “We love each other, but is love enough when our religious and cultural differences seem so difficult… and we’re not even married yet?” Do you want to explore “Pre-marital Coaching”? “I feel I am giving up too much of my identity in this marriage! My spouse doesn’t understand my native language; my spouse rarely is interested in my cultural or spiritual traditions. What do I do?” Do you need help with “Daily Life in a Cross-Cultural Household”? 7 http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys “Parenting between cultures and faith traditions is overwhelming.

  • 8. Did you answer YES to anything? Have you checked out the intake forms? http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/2010/ 09/coaching-and-tutoring-intake-forms.html Are you curious how I go about doing what I do?

  • 9. How I do what I do….. I sit with you and have a regular conversation. I want to know a little about you to help you explore yourself better. Though I am your coach, mentor, or tutor, you also have the answers within you. You know the things that help you be the best you you can be- but sometimes we all get caught up in life and forget these things. As I get to know you, I ask you questions to help you uncover what you have inside you that you have lost touch with. How do I help you achieve your goals? 9 Photo credit: Krishna Kumar http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys
  • 10. These chunks will be your goals. Within the goals are smaller steps to help you achieve the goal. As we move forward and goals are achieved, the puzzle becomes whole again! How do you help me keep on track? 10 Helping you achieve your goals I help you achieve your goals by creating SMART goals or goals that are written with a final, tangible outcome in mind that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-sensitive. Creating your goals is like putting a puzzle together. We will explore and break your dreams of cross-cultural adaptation and comfortable expat living down into smaller chunks.

  • 11. I help you keep on track by – • Holding you accountable for your progress. • Helping you find the best method that suits your personality to achieve your goals. • Brainstorming alternative paths to achieving the goal. • Helping you overcome obstacles. • Creating specialized lessons (for English and for personal development). • Helping you keep track of it all by providing follow up notes for appointments. • By other ways you identify that are helpful. How long does this process take? 11 Photo credit: David Boyle @ Flickr http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys
  • 12. It is based on a lot of factors: • the kind of goal • your personal resources to achieve the goal • the time line • your motivation • your overall self-confidence in achieving the goal What if I keep trying and it’s not working? 12 Time line for Achieving Your Goals I cannot tell you a time line, because for each person it is different. Photo credit: Krishna Kumar http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys
  • 13. When it doesn’t seem to work what do we do? At this time we hit obstacles or blocks, we can go deeper into the process of getting in touch with yourself. This goes beyond the goal to some types of self-confidence, personality development and communication skills types of activities based on your unique needs. This sounds pretty intense, how has it worked for others? Have you tried it? 13 http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys
  • 14. Success of the process For the clients or students I have helped so far, I have seen tremendous improvements in as little as a few months depending on the goal, their motivation to achieve it and their self-confidence. Yes, I also have gone through the processes, especially the Life Purpose Process. This process which can help you dive into personal and career exploration is the coaching process I am certified in through the Life Purpose Institute. In order to graduate and get certified I also had to go through the processes myself- I dived into the same materials I am presenting to you. They are powerful and life changing. How do I get started? 14 http://authenticjourneys.blogspot.com/ C 2011 Jennifer Kumar, Authentic Journeys
