STATS THAT MATTER

1 %
overseas assignements fail

Between 10-20% of U.S. managers(1) and 11% of volunteers(2) sent abroad returned early. High costs are incurred to replace them and send over their substitutes.(2)

1 %
Failured due to organizational support

The most common issues are related to insufficient preparation and settling-in support offered by the company.(3)

1 %
International students experience anxiety

This data specifically relates to those whose anxiety is due to their adaptation to the new culture.(4)

culture shock and readapting at home

People who spend a lot of time traveling or relocate to a foreign country for work, to volunteer or to study often experience(5):

  • Exhaustion, stress or anxiety about their new cultural context.
  • Loneliness due to distance from their social network. They struggle to create new valuable bonds or a community.
  • Sense of loss and nostalia for their homeland.
  • Confusion about identity, their belief systems and their role in society.
  • Frustration or confusion about new cultural customs.
Travelers often experience these same symptoms when they go back home after being overseas for extended periods of time.

By changing the mindset, these obstacles can be swiftly and comfortably overcome.

PERSONALIZED SESSIONS FOR YOUR TRAVELERS

This service is perfect for organizations that work with students, volunteers, travelers or have employees that regularly travel or relocate for work. I can help make sure they feel fulfilled and happy with their overseas experience. 

Replacing volunteers or employees who leave overseas placements early can be costly. Having students who give up on their study abroad programs can be bad for reviews. Making sure the travelers in your care are finding what they need from their trips abroad can be tough. 

LET ME HELP YOU WITH THAT. 

RETREATS OR TRAININGS FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION

Offer the international students, volunteers, workers or travelers you work with a space to explore themselves and the adventure their on.

Through workshops, day retreats, trainings or weekend getaways we can provide them a space and guidance for inner exploration, connecting with others, and becoming more mindful people and travelers.
