Active Action Workshops, Webinars, and Virtual Workshops

Active Action provides workshops, webinars, and virtual workshops that are tailor-made to raise awareness and successfully work through the challenges Internationals, Re-pats, LovePats, 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 Internationals 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 relocating Spouse/Partner.

Active Internationals

The body and mind connection – Your Expat Tool Box – how does relocation influence our mental and physical well-being? Physical Activity and its benefits are one of the most important go-to tools for Internationals. This workshop emphasizes the healthy habits that have a profound influence on the relocation experience. Physical activity, a positive mindset, mindful practices, a healthy lifestyle, taking control/action of life are all interconnected.

Your International Life – Cultural Awareness

In order to thrive as Internationals, it is necessary to address the challenges, to raise awareness, to acknowledge the reasons behind these challenges, and finally, to focus on taking action: implementing solutions and tools. The Culture of a host country plays an important role in every transition, adjustment, finding balance, as well as creating fulfilling lives in order to thrive in Denmark. Therefore, Cultural Adjustment Awareness and cross-cultural experiences are crucial. It is important to define and become familiar with the adjustment stages as well as addressing the feelings of belonging and doubleness in order to have an easier time settling in during the transition. Equally important is also to nurture your International Identities and learn how to manage the expectations that often accompany the move.

Through group and individual exercises and tools, the participants learn how to get through challenges faced by Internationals when stepping out of comfort zones and into the unknown new host-country culture. This workshop teaches 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.

 

 Your Personal Power 

Regain Your Personal Power workshop focuses on the impact expectations and stress have on our emotional and professional well-being. We define what stress and expectations are, and give tools to diminish their impact. The aim is to recognize situations that may trigger us to feel disappointed or stressed and have the knowledge and tools to overcome such challenges. 

The workshop is also dedicated to learning about emotional resilience, physical well-being, and how we can diminish stress levels through healthy and purposeful habits, physical activity, and breathing exercises.  

This workshop introduces hands-on solutions and tools to take away and apply in everyday life situations.

Finally, we will acknowledge the important role that routines and an active lifestyle have when it comes to well-being. 

Your Life by Design – Reshaping your Goals & Beliefs 

Your Life by Design workshop concentrates on taking a closer look at the participants’ goals and beliefs and seeing the benefits of refreshing and/or reshaping them. In order to do so, we need to clarify what Thinking Traps are and how to manage them. It is equally important to understand why Limiting Beliefs stop Goal Achievement and how using the growth mindset can enhance goal achievement. The participants will explore the strategy of setting goals and defining what success vs. failure means to them. One of the takeaway tools that this workshop will provide is preparation to create a Goal Mind Map. 

30 minutes of physical activity

In order for anyone who is moving abroad, relocating, re-patriating or participating in an exchange program the Culture Adjustment Phases are the foundation of Aware Internationals and should always be discussed before proceeding with other International/ Expat topics.

The aim of Active Action workshops as a series or as single workshops are to use pro-active solutions, to focus on taking action in order to create a thriving environment for the Internationals, Expats, Re-pats as well as the Danes.

In order to activate the participants, physical activity is incorporated into the workshops. Physical activity has an enormous influence on the body as well as the mind. It can be used as a powerful tool to enhance and enrich our lives.
