Cross-Cultural Transition Coach

Olivier Caudron, an actor from Belgium, moved to New York a year ago. He was appalled when U.S. real estate brokers asked about his salary. "That's not something we discuss so easily in Europe," he says. He turned to Anette Due Rosenzweig of ADR Coaching in New York and today finds himself better adjusted. Among the things foreigners need to know in the U.S., says Rosenzweig, is baseball lingo, particularly phrases such as 'He won't play ball' or 'That guy is in the little leagues.' Without such knowledge, a foreigner in the U.S. will be out in left field. Caudron is now a life coach as well as an acting instructor.
