Repatriate coaching

Returning home after a period overseas can be just as stressful as moving to a foreign country. However the final adjustment in the overseas relocation process does not have to be a negative experience-if it is well planned. While expatriates expect some challenges when they go on international assignment, most repatriates do not expect any reverse culture shock. This can therefore feel more distressing as not everyone sees it coming. Most people underestimate the potential challenges of re-adjusting to life back home. They assume returning home will take them to a familiar lifestyle and environment.
