“Finally, a book about moving abroad that addresses the social, emotional and psychological along with the physical, practical and career considerations! Katia Vlachos’s A Great Move: Surviving and Thriving in Your Expat Assignment covers all the bases, outlining the five areas that truly matter and demand your attention as you move through the stages of deciding, preparing, moving and settling in a different country or culture. The balance between information, empathy and guidance is perfect, with stories of actual expat experiences woven throughout, along with snapshot assessments, chapter Checklists, and Common Mistakes. A Great Move will help you create the conditions for having the challenging, yet compulsory caring conversations, connection and clarity needed when considering an international move, and the tools to help make the ensuing transitions shorter, softer and steadier.”
