Research Activities

A platform organisation for stakeholders in coaching and mentoring research

Through a specific set of value propositions EMCC International Research offers complementary capabilities to stakeholders involved and interested in coaching research with the main aim of supporting the development of effective evidence based coaching practices.

Research in itself, if done properly, is a resources-demanding activity. Producing high quality, applicable pieces requires the involvement and coordination of several capabilities: theoretical knowledge, needs assessment, concept development, data collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination. To handle all of these challenges, the vision of Research is to elevate EMCC International into a ‘platform position’ where all involved stakeholders (e.g. coaches, academics, potential sponsors, practitioners etc.) could get their relevant share from the outcomes, results and applications of the research process, in exchange for their contribution to it. EMCC International Research, through its diverse networks, links the different stakeholders and participants of the coaching field and the research arena to enable the realisation of research projects that are in line with the EMCC International Research Agenda.
