Expat coaching

For young professionals in their 20s and 30s

Moving to a new country is an exciting adventure, but also a major change. Your employee is leaving hearth and home and with that their familiar routine. In the new country they will have to adjust to a different culture and different customs and they might speak a different language. Faced with this change, your employee could feel insecure or lonely.

The coaches at Het Groei Atelier would be happy to help your employee through this beautiful, but disruptive, life-changing event. Together they will explore how to shape this new life. How your employee can feel at home again, how they can deal with loss and find new meaning in their time abroad.

Take four steps from setting your goal to concrete results

Het Groei Atelier has developed a unique coaching model. This coaching model is based on a range of theories. Work with your coach to take four steps from setting your goal to concrete results. On top of this coaching model, we use various tools with proven effectiveness.


The first step in every coaching programme is to identify your coaching goal. During your coaching sessions, we will build your self-awareness so you can gain greater insight and understanding of how you think, act and feel.


Your potential is the sum of your talents, skills and experience. It is your strength. Living and working from your strength is the path to happiness. In this phase you will also investigate what prevents you from harnessing your full potential.


Inspiration is what your heart strives for, what drives and motivates you. Living and working from inspiration energizes you. So it makes sense that neglecting your inspiration and personal drive drains you of that same energy.

Finally, we help to increase you personal leadership: achieve real results with new insights in self-awareness, inspiration and increased potential.

Coach Kristja

“Follow your heart. It sounds easy… ”

But actually, it’s not. How do you know what your heart is telling you? And how do you then shape your plans to realize your ambitions?
