Active Action Workshops

Active Action provides workshops that are tailor-made to raise awareness and successfully work through the challenges Internationals, Re-pats and Expat Spouses/Partners face in order to have a smoother transition and adaptation into the host country.
Part of retaining highly skilled international employees is addressing the challenges they and their family members face.

The next step is to provide solutions that will allow Expats and their loved ones to feel comfortable and welcome.

The Spouse/Partner plays a key role in a successful relocation assignment and there is a need to focus more on the relocating Spouse/Partner.

Through sharing sessions and useful exercises and tools, we learn how to get through challenges faced by Internationals when stepping out of comfort zones. This workshop shows Internationals how to regain balance after the stress of moving. Before shifting into gear, we need to acknowledge, address the changes and challenges and then take action.

Aware International

This workshop session focuses on the significant role that the culture of the host country plays in the lives of individuals living abroad. Cultural awareness is fundamental to thriving. All Internationals have skills, talents, and strengths that can be put to use in the new host country. Sometimes, all that is needed is a different perspective and looking outside of the box. Becoming familiar with the Danish Culture and how to navigate in it is key in order to have a smoother and easier transition into the new life in Denmark. Understanding intercultural competence is an important step that leads to feeling comfortable in a new country.

Expert International

The Expert Expat workshop is designed to raise awareness regarding International/Expat Identity, re-defining and often re-inventing  International/Expat identity, how grieving and gaining are a part of the international experience and the importance of belonging. Why is there such a need to belong and how can deeper Cultural Awareness fulfil this need? Finding Gravity and Balance in the International life is crucial in order to move forward and make the relocation experience a positive one. The time is NOW! This workshop brings you a step closer to discover what your passion is. Expat life makes internationals experts in so many fields, let’s put that expertise to use.
