The definitive book for the thousands of expat executives and their spouses who arrive in Singapore every year to take up positions in Singapore companies.

SPECIFICATIONS: Paperback | 234 x 156 mm | 200 Pages |

Padraig O’Sullivan has over fifteen years’ leadership and coaching experience encompassing Australia, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Harnessing solid, global business acumen and entrepreneurial thinking, Padraig exhibits and delivers the critical understanding, character, expertise and hands-on strategies required to ensure clients achieve their transition and transformation goals.

For many executives, Singapore represents their first overseas posting and provides a safe transition to international work and life. This is your chance to step onto the world stage and take your family along for the ride. Everything points to success. However, up to 50 per cent of international leadership assignments fail. Added to this are the complexities of leading in Singapore: the diverse range of people and cultures means a ‘one size fits all’ approach is unlikely to work. What’s the solution? In Foreigner in Charge: Singapore, leading international business coach Padraig O’Sullivan takes an insightful, comprehensive look at what it takes to succeed. Central to the book is the PALDER framework, a proven, integrated approach mapping out the transition phases you will experience in your first two years. It illustrates the waves of change you, your family and the organisation will undergo and gives you the necessary navigation tools.

The book also guides you through:

·         mental and professional preparations before leaving home

·         what to expect in Singapore

·         how to help your family smoothly transition to life in Singapore

·         the unique characteristics and challenges of leading in Singapore.

Complemented by online worksheets, Foreigner in Charge: Singapore delivers everything you need to transition successfully and get the most out of your Singapore leadership experience.
