Successful Communication (with a personal touch)!
Personal coaching to get you through cultural differences
Feel a sense of belonging, improve working relationships, and understand and embrace cultures.
Hey International Professional!
You’ve been to several countries and you feel like a part of every place you’ve been to. BUT now you’re faced with a challenge in cultural differences in your personal or professional life.
You Might be feeling:
confused because you’re not sure how to act
behave or even communicate
mistrust and misunderstanding
loneliness and you begin to build a wall around you
your love relationship seems to diminish because of the differences
your leadership style isn't working as you hoped
starting to isolate yourself from others and you’re confused about your role
You want to have:
good working relationships with your colleagues
a balance where you can embrace their culture and have them understand yours
a community of belonging and acceptance
your voice heard
an understanding of why you react in a certain way
the ability to adapt but still remain yourself
You may have tried to:
Learn their language
Read about their culture
Take a course on culture
Read self-help books
It didn’t work!
Learning a language takes too much time and it really doesn’t help with communication when you’re dealing with personalities. The time to complete a course on culture or communication might be shorter but the result was that it was more on an organizational level, meaning there was no true personal touch. Everyone is different and every situation is different. AND It's hard to work on yourself and face your own issues. Unfortunately, it is easier to NOT work on yourself and just blame it on others.
If you go about it alone, there’s a high probability you’ll give up. More importantly, it will feel like it's recurring and you’ll continue to feel lonely and lose all your confidence.
Hi I'm Rhys!
I help individuals who feel challenged in a cross-cultural environment. I come from a very multi-cultural background. I was born in India but I am not Indian by blood. My ancestry is Burmese and Chinese. I grew up in Queens, New York, the melting pot, where diversity is the culture. Currently, I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and I’m married to a French lady.
What a confusing story?
Well, this is what brought success. I’ve definitely felt your pain and challenges in my life, one way or another. I’ve learned to manage through the challenge and with my experiences, I’ve developed The Cultural Connection program to speed you through what I’ve learned in my lifetime (40+ years).
I’ve worked with several individuals with cultural challenges - either they relocated to another country for work or they have to manage an international team.
They’ve struggled to find their place and worth. I’m here to help you build a solid foundation and work-style that is uniquely best for you. The Cultural Connection program is a personalized program to help you weed through the cultural challenges, not just for the short term but in the long run so that you can also discover the ‘problem’ and opportunities.
Beatriz A., New York City
Before working with Rhys, I was feeling overwhelmed and unclear about my goals for 2021, especially with my professional life. After working with Rhys, I had seen a shift in my energy and motivation when it comes to cultural differences that I faced. With his personal care, I now feel much more focused and clear on what my true goals are and how to tackle them. His coaching style is very authentic and holistic. He helped me see things in a light that I have otherwise would've not seen. I highly recommend Rhys if you are looking for a truly great coaching experience.

My clients found success in the program when ...
Are ready to invest in yourself (that’s 1 hour a week for 4 weeks).
Want a personal program to help you have a successful path in an intercultural environment.
Tried almost everything and nothing has satisfied you to your goal.
Want to understand themselves and others better.
They're interested in personal development and are ready to go deep, they're also creating a new identity for themselves as an International Professional and Third Culture Individual and that takes REAL WORK.
This program may not work for you if you ...
Expect a cultural course (learn about general cultural topics).
Want ways to learn a foreign language.
Are not ready to commit to 1 hour a week.
If you desire to dive deeper into what matters to you in your life, your values and how to not only have a list of values to lean on, but to actually live according to your values and how to get things done that matter to you, Rhys is a great coach to help you with just that. You will leave the sessions feeling excited about living your values and accomplishing those things that truly matter to you.
