Coaching and Consulting for Cultural Transition
Cultural transition to greater awareness for diversity, equity, and inclusion, a culture of wellness, or supporting new employees navigate a new culture isn't easy! Nextpat ensures you have a fully formed pipeline to create cultural shifts to address shortcomings, achieve strategic goals, and engender an inclusive environment that welcomes all perspectives.
We support retention of employees with diverse backgrounds and experiences, including a focus on minority/underrepresented populations and returning expats.
Values and Purpose
Identity and Boundaries
Communication Styles and Preferences
Time and Prioritization
Norms, Taboos, Rules, and Guidelines
Power, Decision-Making and Respect
Cultural transition requires evaluating who we are, what we value, how that shows up in our behaviors, and how we can shift these behaviors to align with our values and purpose. Nextpat helps identify strategic goals and values for organizations and individuals. Using these goals and values we help you build the external structures (decision-making, rules, etc) and develop the behaviors (communication styles, facilitation, decision-making) to align with your goals.
For organizations this can involve strategic planning, strategic sparring, coaching, facilitation and workshops.
For individuals we support cultural orientation through workshops and coaching.

“Nextpat was very thorough in the weeks leading up to our DEI workshop and worked well within our tight timeframe. The team provided very organized presentations and they listened to the needs of our organization. We were very pleased with the workshop as well as the detailed final report."
The world of work is changing - with cultural changes more broadly being felt and impacting employees - from systemic violence and underrepresentation to work-from-home cultures. Managers and organizations are fighting to keep up morale, respond to new ways of doing work, and ensure that new employees are prepared to succeed in the cultural environment of the organization. If not, they risk losing both talent and their investment in hiring and onboarding.
Using experience, best practices, and analytic feedback, Nextpat partners with HR managers and organization leaders to retain talent through personalized coaching investment in returning employees, workshops for managers and returning staff, DEI facilitation and strategic planning, and pipeline development for HR.
Internationally minded and available virtually, Nextpat coaches individuals prior to, during, and after transitions helping them align their evolving identities to achieve their highest goals. The Journey Home is full of exciting opportunities, but too often becomes a story about what was. Let us help you use those experiences to shape your future. Whether navigating a new work culture, societal culture, or changes in expectations, our coaches can help you navigate a new normal.
Using scientific-backed studies, experience, and feedback Nextpat partners with you to develop strategies to maintain and find community, align your values and purpose to your work, and manage culture shock related to overwhelm, burnout, and resource differences between places.
