Coach of the Month

I am honored to be the Expat Coach Associations's Coach of the Month in June 2014. I have also contributed an article "Examining personal and cultural authenticity" to ECA's June newsletter. The link between personality type and cultural preferences has become a focus of discussion and research among a group of coaches and trainers and I belief that new insights will add value to our clients.


"Culture and Personality" - ECA talk on May 6th

I have been invited to speak about the link between Culture and Personality Type at the Expat Coach Associations' monthly call on May 6th. There is an increasing interest in how cultural and personality patterns are connected, what research is available - and missing - and how to bridge disconnects that seem to be present. I hope that this call will be very interactive and that participants from different fields will contribute to extending our knowledge.

The call "Culture and Personality" will take place on May 6th, 9 am Eastern, 3 pm CET.

In the Shadow of Her Voice. A Memoir of an Arab Woman

Isn't it amazing how quickly we claim to "know" someone?  I have "known" Muna Alyusuf - in this very casual sense of the word - for a number of years. We met in the UK where she worked as a training manager. We worked together on a number of assignments and we regularly spoke on the phone. She came across as a strong, professional woman and I appreciated her openness and straightforwardness.
