Discovering the Dutch - Personal Training Programme
Embarking on an overseas assignment can be exciting – you and your family get the chance to live and work in a new country, experiencing new career opportunities and a new culture at the same time.
But, moving to a new country can also be challenging. The practical and logistical challenges of such a move, though overwhelming, are often expected. The subtlety of the cultural challenges, on the other hand, can be surprising. Cultural difference can manifest unexpectedly in many different arenas, from the basics of how we attempt to communicate and build relationships with each other, to the complexities of how we prefer to make decisions or negotiate a deal. Culture shock, or rather, culture stress, can compound the usual feelings of novelty associated with your new job.
The Discovering the Dutch personal training programme helps you to navigate the cultural challenges that come with work and life in the Netherlands. This programme explores the most predominant differences between your culture and the Dutch culture, focusing on your experiences working with your Dutch colleagues and living amongst the Dutch. It provides you with a framework to further develop your intercultural competence, a transferrable skill.
