From the 43 NGOs who attended the second day of the Summit, 20 were selected for coaching: 10 starting in January 2019 and the remainder in March 2020.
The coaching grant each received provides a year’s pro bono coaching from a team of at least one international and one local Ethiopian coach.
Supporting the coaches in delivering their best work in accordance with global best practice is a team of coach supervisors, which operates under the leadership of Eve Turner of the Global Supervisors’ Network and Marita Fridjhon, founder of CRR Global.
Through the power of individual and team coaching sessions, designed with rigor and thoughtfulness to build on current strengths and support the development and implementation of focused plans, the leadership teams develop more confidence and competence, individually and collectively, to address opportunities and key issues.
The coaching program itself is being assessed using an impact evaluation approach. The goal of the impact evaluation is to demonstrate the effectiveness of coaching as a leadership development technique that results in the delivery of higher levels of sustainable organization performance.
The NGOs shortlisted to receive coaching were selected from over 1,500 organizations that originally applied to attend the Ethiopian NGO Leadership Coaching Summit.
From these, a cohort of organizations was identified to receive coaching grants that enable selected NGO leaders and their teams to benefit directly from the power of coaching to develop skills, approaches, and new ways of thinking about the critical issues facing their organizations and the sector.
Coaching will allow these NGO leaders to grow their leadership while also empowering them to strengthen their organization as they strive to provide increased support and services to the community.
Our Coach Team is made up of a diverse group of coaches drawn from eight different countries. The internationally based coaches provide 1:1 executive coaching to the leader of each of the selected NGOs.
Working together, the internationally based and the trained and accredited Ethiopian-based coaches provide team coaching to the NGO senior leadership teams.
Committed to supporting our coach teams in the delivery of an outstanding coaching program tailored to the Ethiopian context.
