Coming to Australia is often a dream come true for many executives and their families: the fantastic climate, clean beaches and world-class food all beckon. This is your chance to step onto the world stage and take your family along for the ride of a lifetime. Everything points to success. However, up to 50 per cent of international leadership assignments end in failure. So what's the solution?

In Foreigner in Charge, leading international business coach Padraig O'Sullivan takes a comprehensive and insightful look at what it takes to succeed in your new assignment. Central to the book is the PALDER framework, a proven, integrated approach mapping out the transition phases an expatriate leader will undergo in their first twelve to twenty-four months. It illustrates the waves of change you, your family and the organisation will go through and gives you the necessary navigation tools.

This book also guides you through: * mental and professional preparations before you leave your home country * what to expect upon arrival in Australia * how to help your family smoothly transition to life in a new country * the unique characteristics and challenges of leading in Australia Complemented by online worksheets and support, Foreigner in Charge delivers everything you need to transition successfully and get the most out of your Australian leadership experience.
