Cross-cultural workers during their first year experience a tremendous amount of change. These include food, culture, language, beliefs, traffic, security, and many more, which are often different from their expectations and can be quite overwhelming. This course by Link Care talks about strategies that will help you deal with common issues that arise during the first year of living overseas and help you avoid becoming overwhelmed or burnt out.
This course identifies nine common “milestones” that people typically face, and helps you work through these adjustments by:
- Reflecting on the current situation
- Remembering similar situations in the past
- Considering practical steps to move forward
You can choose only to go through those milestones most relevant to you. However, others might be helpful to work through, because you may need to help others on your team work through them, as they strive to thrive during their first year as well!
