The intention of this session is to create a research agenda that is truly adventurous and represents the major current and anticipated future trends in the world around us. We want to look beyond the needs of coaches, mentors, and supervisors to those of the clients and other stakeholders we serve and the impact coaching can have on major challenges such as the global leadership vacuum, poverty, diversity, climate, and societal change. Needs based high quality, evidence-based research will enable our community to stay relevant, innovate with confidence, and build trust with clients.

Above all, we want to ensure that EMCC Global, through its research, remains relevant and vital to the evolving world we serve. We must demonstrate that we have a significant and substantial offering for EMCC  Globalto truly live the vision of being the ‘go to’ body in mentoring, coaching, and supervision globally for the benefit of society.

This session is a unique opportunity to participate in a dynamic and highly interactive session, contribute your views, and learn from others about clients’ emerging needs and ensure EMCC Global research keeps pace and ahead of the changing needs of clients.
