“SHE LEADS ABROAD” COMPANY PROGRAM

For Organizations investing in their female leaders abroad

She Leads Abroad supports expat women to keep high energy levels when leading change and teams abroad. 4 Steps help you to inspire and keep your own energy high, wherever you are.

Our Guiding Principle for you and leading your team is:

Energy + Connection = Impact² wherever you live

 

  1. We assess your energy level with the #3 Forbes ranked Energy Leadership Index Assessment (ELI) and include feedback from key stakeholders in the home and host country.
  2. We co-create compassionate goals aligned with the vision of your organization, and the transformation that is expected to come. 
  3. Third, we will boost all connections that are key for you to succeed: the team, the boss, your family, and personal ambitions.
  4. We create habits for work and home, that sustain your energy level while living abroad and set you up to maximize your impact for now and coming assignments.

The Core Energy Coaching Processes (Trademark by Ipec – one of the leading international coaching institutions) goes further than traditional coaching methods. We look behind your goals and action plans, and uncover inner blind spots. We uncover limiting beliefs that you carry with you from assignment to assignment, and that stand in between you and your full potential and vision. By finding the ‘root’ of most challenges and blocks, we are able to: 

  • Co-create long-term solutions instead of quick fixes 
  • Promote awareness of others’  feelings, thoughts and actions, so you’re set to succeed in different cultural settings 
  • Empower you to embrace change in your own life 
  • Sharpen your lense of your own thoughts, emotions and actions, and  become aware of your blind spots 

A single insight can change everything.

So, let’s get some data and metrics
on your energy level and your inner blind spots!


ENERGY LEADERSHIP INDEX (ELI) ASSESMENT FOR EXPATS

The ELI is the baseline for your Return on Investment (ROI) as expat

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment that measures how you show up every day and how your energy levels are affected by stress. You’ll see exactly how you approach different situations in life, and your level of satisfaction in the following areas:

  • FinancesLeadership Ability
  • Working Relationships
  • Family Relationships 
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Health & Wellness
  • Spiritual Connection
  • Communication Skills
  • Productivity 

Your values, experiences and assumptions are like filters on your worldview  – they either limit your mindset or expand it. Those filters are unconsciously created over the years and determine how you show up at work, in a new country, and at home. 

Your Average Resonating Level of Energy (A.R.L.) is a combination of 7 different energy types, and indicates how successful and satisfied you are in life. The higher the A.R.L., the more successful, satisfied and balanced you are usually in life. And as an expat: the more energy you have, the higher the impact and ROI of your assignment. 

Ranked by Forbes as one of the top 3 assessments every executive shall take. 

What will change for you, after you have taken the ELI and gotten the debrief?

  • You’ll walk away with clarity on your blind spots, areas to work on and deep reflection. 
  • You’ll start incorporating the concept of Energy Leadership. This method sharpens your awareness at work and home. 
  • When you and your partner take the ELI, you’ll find yourself having a ‘common’ language at home to create joint forces. 
  • When you and your team or boss take the ELI, you’ll create and live energy leadership among all levels throughout organization.

3 SESSION FIRST AID KIT

When you are moving, time is scarce. You are stressed, and your calendar is full. Full with visa appointments, last meetings, handovers, farewells, house hunting, onboarding, saying hi and bye, digesting all emotions as you go. You feel too drained to even think of going to the gym or taking time for yourself.

  • focus 100% on your new job and achieve quick wins as soon as possible. Establish your power network and have a cheerleader – your coach – on your side, when you are still navigating your role in the new company abroad. 
  • release pressure, frustration and emotions. Feel focused and energized again. 

We’ve created the First Aid Kit to navigate your move with full power and focus:

  • Clarity on your blind spots creates  the baseline for your ROI. So you’ll also take the ELI and we will discuss what the results mean for you. 
  • 3 coaching sessions full of power content and guidance  for your transition. 
  • If we know a contact in your new country, we will be happy to invest in your network by connecting you .
