Abstract

Along with the tremendous growth of international operations, more and more expatriates have to be dispatched to the overseas market places. However, expatriate’s failure still remains in a higher rate. Expatriates’ failure not only can incur the loss of company sales and profits, but also negatively influence expatriates’ effectiveness. Among others, this study investigated the effects of expatriates’ cross-cultural competence, emotional intelligence, and work-role demand on expatriates’ adjustment and performance. With an integration of previous studies, this study posits that expatriates’ cross-cultural competences (in terms of cultural intelligence, cultural adaptability, and cultural empathy), work-role demand (in terms of role novelty, role ambiguity, role conflict, and overload), and expatriates’ emotional intelligence are important factors for the expatriate to adjust in host countries, which can further enhance his/her effectiveness (in terms of innovative work behavior, expatriates’ performance; and expatriates’ satisfaction).
