Based on my research and work with expats in transition, I developed these tools and resources to help ensure your next move is A Great Move. Here you’ll find:
• A Checklist to help you manage every phase of the move, so that you can make the most of the experience and thrive in your new home.
• A Self-Assessment Tool to help you understand how your personal characteristics affect the way you adapt to changes in life circumstances.
• A Tip Sheet to help you make a smooth transition and maintain your sanity in the process.

This is a list of my favorite resources that can assist you with every stage of a move, from the initial decision, to planning and preparing, to managing the logistics and, last but not least, settling in and creating your new home. The list is by no means exhaustive, so please feel free to recommend sites that you think should be included!
