Press Release – Though Leadership & Development rallies industry players on Digital and AI

20 June 2022

Under their Thought Leadership & Development (TL&D) umbrella, EMCC Global has formed a task force with visionary coaching platform providers to set the benchmark standard for Digital Coaching.

EMCC Global is proud to announce the creation of a new task force within its TL&D Centre for Excellence on Digital & AI. As a professional membership body that sets ethical and accreditation standards, EMCC Global brings industry players under a single umbrella to develop the standard for Digital Coaching.

Rallying visionary coaching technology providers, including AceUp, Coachhub, Coaching-on-Demand, CoachVici, Ezra, Jrny, Ovida, SparkUs, TaskHuman, and UExcelerate. EMCC Global’s newest task force marks the first step towards regulating the digital coaching sphere and use of data in the field.

Under EMCC Global’s vision to be the ‘go to’ body in mentoring, coaching, and supervision, the Centre for Excellence on Digital & AI will approach topics arising in the fast-growing field of digital coaching.

EMCC Global invites players in the coaching field who share their vision of raising professional standards to join this first step toward self-regulating the digital coaching sphere.

“Technology is changing and even disrupting all sectors, and in that respect we see a growing presence of new applications, new tools, and new business models affecting coaching, mentoring and supervision”, said Dr Riza Kadilar, EMCC Global President, and added: “As we witness a growing role of our practice in the reskilling and upskilling of workforce, and concepts like democratisation or uberization of coaching and mentoring, we, as EMCC Global, are looking forward to the discoveries and recommendations of our newly created task force”

“This is an exciting opportunity to be in at the start of creating guidance for development of standards and ethical approaches in this fast-growing space,” said Stephen Murphy, EMCC Global Vice-president of Thought Leadership & Development. “We welcome all those who wish to contribute to this development.”

“Digitalization of coaching and mentoring is a reality that we, as an independent go-to body of our field, cannot be indifferent to,” said Ozlem Sarioglu, Leader of EMCC Global’s Centre for Excellence on Digital & AI, Professional Coach, and Co-Founder of SparkUs Digital Coaching. “Our discussion forum and task force will focus needs and requirements on different aspects of Digital & AI, self-organising and co-creating via contributions from multiple angles (such as tech providers, coaches, mentors, supervisors, and buyers of such services).”
