Most people enter international leadership roles unprepared.

Managers who work abroad as expats, travel frequently or remotely connect countries get help by employers in technical skills, but much less to prepare for another country's habits, culture, laws and daily practices. And yet, the success of their work depends on cultural agility. Even the best technical expert gets lost in cultural mazes, but leaders who connect well with local colleagues and clients take their career to a new, truly global level.

Gabor Holch has spent over 20 years coaching managers, executives, entrepreneurs and diplomats in advanced intercultural communication and leadership skills. He has worked with firms like Porsche, Patek-Philippe, EY, IKEA, Johnson & Johnson, MAERK, world leading banks, hotel chains, the United Nations and governments. His coaching programmes lay on solid research but from the client's end, they are focused, intensive and practical.

Coaching is always deeply personalised, but most programmes fall under one of these topics.
