About the Event

Culture shock with your home culture? It is possible! Seasons can include a recent return from a long stay abroad, extended work experience in a culturally different environment such as a foreign firm  or an industry with a unique culture, frequent international travel, even many foreign friends or marrying into a family with different cultural roots. Either way, the shock is there and can present both challenges and opportunities.

In this one-hour Live Mentoring session for Patreon members and participants, intercultural leadership consultant Gabor Holch and his guests discuss the experience, difficulties, excitement, opportunities and life lessons that originate from seeing one;s native culture at least a bit with an outsider's eyes.

Gabor brings to the conversation his own experience as an expat kid, 25 years of international consulting experience and interviews with returning expat managers for his forthcoming book 'Dragon Suit: The golden age of expatriate executives in China'. He will also share widely used research, theories and practices on culture shock, cultural adjustment and intercultural cooperation in business and life in general.
