Solomon Sisay, one of those selected, said “I am delighted to have been chosen as one of the participants in this first coach certification program in Ethiopia. I’m hugely excited about the opportunities to learn from world-class coaches and to have the chance to work with them and NGO leaders in due course”.
Thirty enthusiastic volunteers signed up for an intensive eight module blended (individual and team) coach training series delivered by Professor David Clutterbuck, our featured keynote speaker at the Ethiopian NGO Leadership Coaching Summit, supported by a team of local and international volunteers.
The training consisted of eight 90-minute virtual training sessions, combined with 90 minute in-person application opportunities comprising a combination of coaching skill drill practice and reflection with peers. Additional learning support has been provided by a team of ten Global Supervisors’ Network (GSN) supervisors, led by Eve Turner.
A second training opportunity has been made possible by Marita Fridjhon, founder of CRR Global. A 2-hour virtual orientation session will be followed by a two-day intensive systems coach training on September 30 and October 1, 2018, with wrap up comprising two virtual integration sessions, one each in November and December.
Accreditation opportunities for these local coaches have been arranged through the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC).
Ten of these local coaches will be selected to co-coach NGO leadership teams alongside our internationally coaches following the NGO Leadership Coaching Summit. As part of the EthicalCoach coaching team, they will continue to receive coach supervision support throughout the 12 month coaching program.
