Susan Salzbrenner's work with athletes and sports teams focuses on transition management, integration abroad, strengthening their cultural and emotional intelligence, and supporting a sustainable career path. As an organizational psychologist, intercultural trainer and global nomad, she coaches and trains on the impact diversity can have on our performance. She's lived in six countries on four continents, traveled to many more, learned (and failed) at many languages, and played basketball along the way.Review:
"Being in the business of representing athletes for 12 years this is the first resource that I have come across that illustrates exactly how a person should prepare for a professional athlete career. It can be difficult to navigate through this business and the various countries that players must play in but Susan does a great job of providing tools and practical ways of tackling on the issues that one is likely to come across. Highly recommend as a resource to keep while preparing for a life as a professional athlete." - Carolina Blanco, Executive Director at Sports International Group, Inc.
What an invaluable resource. Having played abroad early in my Volleyball career, I could identify with many of the pitfalls this guide addresses, as well as the wonderful benefits of playing in a different country and culture. I love the checklists, tips and comprehensive advice covering the practicalities as well as the emotions of playing abroad. This guide will help you prepare for all that didn't know to prepare for, and will give you the confidence to say yes to playing abroad.- Annette Lynch, Olympian, Former Professional Beach Volleyball Player, Author, Success beyond Sport.
