About the book:

The International Career Couple Handbook
offers powerful ways to guide internationally mobile talent. From a foundation of deeply caring for a global workforce, the authors share real-life insights into the challenges and opportunities for International Career Couples (ICC) and the organizations deploying them globally.
With in-depth research and substantial HR experience, this book argues that the future of global careers requires a holistic strategic perspective on professionals living and working in international trajectories. Applying organizational methods and facilitating meaningful conversations are ways for ICCs to succeed and for organizations to retain them. This handbook is filled with practical tools for each ICC to construct its own map of the future.
Both authors are themselves each a partner in an ICC as well as parents. Therefore they have first-hand experience of the challenges and opportunities that mark the life of an ICC. They met through a network connection, which underscores one of the book’s main messages: Opportunities arise when you commit to pursuing a long-term vision and short-term goals on a global development path – while remaining open for unexpected turns. They firmly believe that a growth mindset and a supportive network are key for ICC success.
