Our support with intercultural coaching will enable you to: prepare your departure and your return to be effective in your new environment , develop your leadership in an intercultural context .

HB Coaching develops the  intercultural coaching program for you and your teams according to the specific needs of your organization . Coaching sessions can be done both in French or English.


  • to understand the key intercultural competencies necessary to interact effectively in an intercultural environment
  • to better yourself in order to identify adjustments to implement to be efficient in your communication and in your intercultural management
  • to understand the stages of change and the inherent stress of culture shock

In France , the premature return of expatriate mission reaches 30 to 50% and 1/3 of the  expatriates leave the company within 2 years following their return : the culture shock for the executive and  his spouse or her husband  is often underestimated .

Example of individual coaching support during expatriation or impatriation :

individual coaching sessions before departure (8 within 2 months) and upon arrival (8 sessions over 8 months ), on the following topics:


  • career / motivations / emotions and resistance / intention / values ​​/ vision
  • new professional project that is part of a project life
  • style of management / communication / intercultural competencies
  • cycle of the intercultural experience 
  • regulation of the stress inherent to intercultural transition
  • phases of adaptation to the new environment and stress regulation



Biography of Hélène Blot

Beyond professional skills, being expatriated has meant for me, before all , an inner identity journey to explore the shores of the Bosphorus and along the Huang Pu .
From Shanghai to Istanbul, I have understood the challenges of leadership posture and have interacted with teams from different cultural orientations.
I've also discovered and implemented new competencies : coaching , training, expressive arts and relaxation techniques. These new horizons have nourished my practice of global coaching.

My professional history of 20 years in the Promodès Carrefour group has enabled me to alternate the management of teams in hypermarket ,in Shanghai and Istanbul, as store manager and as purchase director.
And this  11 years abroad carreer path (8 years in Shanghai and 3 years in Istanbul) was , beyond the richness of the professional experience , the opportunity to refine my flexibility in various multi- cultural and professional contexts.

  • Coaching organizations by William Bergquist & Dorothy Siminovitch : ICCO (The International Consortium for Coaching in Organization)
