Any of these sound familiar?

  • Is your company struggling to get high rates of employee attrition?
  • Do you see a trend of new staff coming and quickly going?
  • Are you struggling with a low rate of employee retention?

If so, the problem you are looking to solve will not be solved by a new rule or a new policy. It will not be solved by a fancy new company outing or giving out bigger bonuses.

At a local and international level, every business is really run by people. Tech companies, manufacturing even consumer brands are driven by the ideas, efforts, and talents of people. Every business needs its people to perform to be able stay profitable, sustain costs, grow, and scale. If people are constantly entering and exiting the business, then the business cannot grow.

The problem is rooted in how people feel working at your organization.

The main reason most people leave a company to seek a new job elsewhere is not always because of a better salary or benefits package. The main reasons people leave an organization is because of how they are treated, how their work environment makes them feel and how they see a future in your organization. If an employee dreads going to work every day, no matter how much they are paid, it’s only a matter of time before they quit, due to the stress of being in a place they do not want to be.

People need to feel happy, productive and valued

When expats decide to live in a new country, they often have a hard time integrating into a new culture, way of life and set of norms. This can cause them to feel lost, confused, stressed and unmotivated to do their best. If your company is an international organization that employs people from different parts of the world, it is very important that employees find their place of comfort and feeling of being at “home” where they are. This is why having a cultural integration program is key to the success of any international organization.

How can I help your organization
solve these problems?

Why work with me?

I am an expat myself so I can relate to the idea of integrating into a new culture. When I moved to Switzerland 7 years ago, I did not have any kind of support system that helped me integrate into Swiss culture. I had to learn a new language, new culture and new way of living and doing things all on my own. In the process I built upon my expertise in intercultural education in global organizations. authored two books exploring cultural diversity in HR practices of recruitment, selection, training, and development. I also deeply explored the role of intercultural education for expats on international assignments.

 I use my expertise in intercultural communication, Diversity and Inclusion and the Personal Agility System to enable organizations and individuals to create alignment around what really matters. 

My expertise and training in intercultural communications, diversity, inclusion, and personal agility systems can empower your organization with the ability to recognize and create alignments in areas that will optimize employee performance. 

When employees are happy, feel valued and feel like they are really part of an organization they will perform at their best and are more likely to stay long term. When employees stay at an organization and perform at their best, the company will grow, become profitable and the business will be able to scale

I provide years of experience and expert consulting in the areas of:

  • Intercultural communication
  • Empathetic leadership
  • Time Management
  • Corporate Strategy
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Career Development
  • Employee engagement
  • Talent Development

Being an ICF training facilitator and recognized mentor, I strongly adhere to the ICF code of ethics. Thus, I continuously focus on my own development as an ICF certified Professional Coach to provide my clients the highest quality of service and achieve.

Adelina approached the theoretical part of the topic with storytelling, with a lot of authenticity, charisma, and professionalism.

found Adelina a wonderful interaction partner, who displayed an inner talent to be coach and facilitator of the Personal Agility System.

Powerful yet simple. I recommend anyone to step in and work with Adelina for their own growth.”
