Intercultural Training & Expat Coaching

Building bridges for a global mindset.

Thrive in your international life and career.

Welcome!

In the global business world, intercultural competence has become a key qualification. I accompany specialists and executives on their very individual path to more confidence, success and satisfaction during their foreign assignments and when working with international colleagues and business partners.

I also support global nomads and expat partners in mastering the often underestimated and unexpected challenges of living abroad and returning home. I’m by your side when it comes to gaining clarity, empowering yourself and taking the next steps.

I design my trainings and coaching with a hands-on approach and in a culture-reflective manner. I draw on my own international experience as a child, expat and expat partner as well as my many years of professional experience in international companies and multicultural teams. As a big fan of lifelong learning and growth, I decided to become an intercultural trainer and coach. To do this, I studied the scientific foundations and obtained the necessary tools to optimally support my participants and clients.

My approach:

I offer both: Intercultural Training and Coaching

In intercultural training, the focus is on imparting knowledge about cultural dimensions, target culture, expanding cultural awareness and practicing skills for constructive adaptation and effective collaborative action under different cultural conditions. The knowledge gained now needs to be put into practice. Through coaching, the areas in which the coachee needs further support can be addressed individually. The recipe for success lies in the combination of knowledge and experience, reinforced by reflection in the coaching process.

Experience

If there is one thing my many years of experience abroad have taught me: always expect the unexpected! Theoretical concepts are an important basis. But in order to be able to move confidently and successfully in an international context, a "mindshift" has to take place, which we work out together and which you can develop further in your professional practice and personal life. To illustrate this, I like to share some of my own experiences in international companies and multicultural teams and reflect on them together with the clients.

Tailored to your needs

In order to achieve the desired learning success, I prepare thoroughly according to your requirements and after carrying out a detailed needs analysis. I offer classroom, virtual and blended learning formats. No two training courses are alike and are put together anew every time, because this is the only way I can pick up the participants from where they are. I go into coaching without a ready-made plan, as the focus lies on the coachee and his or her very personal concerns. I am responsible for designing the process for which I use appropriate systemic questioning techniques and interventions.

Testimonials:

"Ms. Homborg's intercultural training motivated and sensitized me to the clear differences to German culture. It was well structured and was supplemented with many examples from Ms. Homborg's personal experience in Mexico. I have been in Mexico for two weeks now and have already successfully used my first experience of training in communication with my Mexican colleagues. The training is recommendable for those who travel to Mexico for a longer time."

"I definitely recommend an intercultural training with Wiebke Homborg, she is a professional who has lived several experiences abroad and studied what may be happening to you or will happen to you when facing a different culture. The training of Wiebke helped me a lot to understand my own culture as Mexican - there were several aspects on which I had not reflected - and the German culture. Thanks to her training I consider that I can better understand the cultural differences of Germany and Mexico and I now have more tools for my cultural immersion. Wiebke is very dedicated, kind and professional; I recommend these trainings. Never underestimate cultural differences and as often, all we need is help to understand them and from there the adaptation is much easier."

Expat from Mexico

“Wiebke is a highly empathetic professional, passionate about her job and provides the right amount of structure, knowledge and great tools to guide her clients through the process. While working with her, I enjoyed her bright personality, her guidance and her extreme flexibility in adapting the coaching process to the new (pandemic) circumstances without letting me get stuck on the way. She was exactly that transparent sparring partner to me that I needed to reflect during the early stages of my transition. Coming from the same field it was a great experience for me to switch roles, exchange ideas with her and get ready to unpack my re-entry backpack.”
