Research Webinars





This online event series contributes to the continuous professional development of our members through offering fresh and different perspectives which are at the leading edge of new ideas and developments in the field of coaching, mentoring, and supervision.

All our online events (apart from the Live Practitioner and Stay in Touch series) are recorded and are made available after editing (usually five working days after the event – subject to any IT hiccups) to everyone who books, whether they attend the online event or not.

EMCC Global Research Development Workshop Series 1

Research into practice: Future trends in inclusive coaching, mentoring and supervision with Jonathan Passmore & Charmaine Roche

Research is increasingly playing a vital role in shaping practice in coaching, mentoring and supervision.  Using an evidence base to inform practice is fast becoming part of ethical practice. This series of workshops aims to enable researchers and practitioners to share research and find practical ways to respond to inclusive futures.

‘To more confidently respond, we suggest coach trainers and professional bodies provide more information to enable coaches to better understand these issues and how they can engage with clients on these topics.’ (‘Future Trends in Coaching Executive Report 2021 by Jonathan Passmore)

Addressing this call to action the EMCC Global is leading a series of workshops which will consider recent research publications to consider futures and inclusion. The authors will present and discuss their key findings in the first 2 workshops. In the 3rd workshop the authors will join a panel of experts to translate research into practice.

The purpose of the workshop series is to:

  • Enable an in-depth look at the implications of the research for overcoming inequalities and ensuring inclusion in future trends in coaching
  • Provide a platform for collaboratively exploring questions such as ‘How do we support underrepresented groups, how does coaching have a positive impact on inclusion, how does reflection and self-awareness help in creating inclusion, How do we engage inclusively with new technologies?’
  • Take account of research data and evidence base and translate into practical actions
  • Place the research outcomes in the context The Global Code of Ethics, and The EMCC Diversity and Inclusion Declaration (https://www.emccglobal.org/leadership-development/diversity/)

The outcome will be an EMCC Global report with practical guidance for practitioners.

The workshops are free of charge for members who are encouraged to attend all three workshops to gain full benefit of the research and contribute to the guidance which will be made available to members.

Workshop 1:  Racial Justice, Equity and Belonging in Coaching 10 February 2022 @ 13:00 UTC (14:00 CET/13:00 GMT)  1 hour duration

Download Report

‘This report, informed by original research by Roche and Passmore (2021) with key stakeholders across the coaching eco-system, is a call to action inspired by coaching practitioners, researchers and thought leaders seeking to deploy coaching in support of the global movement for racial justice and equity.

Our aim through this research is to raise awareness of race across the coaching eco-system and of the actions that stakeholders can take to provide a culture within the coaching industry in which everyone is welcome. While many organisations have broad sweeping statements, our research suggests we have a long way to go in taking measurable action to create an inclusive and diverse coaching industry. We invite you to read the research report and reflect on the work you need to be doing in yourself, in your organisation or in the organisations of which you are a member’

Workshop 2: Future Trends in Coaching Executive Report 2021  10 March 2022 @ 13:00 UTC (14:00 CET/13:00 GMT)  1 hour duration

Download Report

‘The aim of the research project was to take a snap-shot of the current views of coaches about the future landscape, as the world started to consider the new normal.

This brief snap-shot survey provides an interesting insight about the changing role of coaching during what is likely to emerge as a pivotal point in the development of coaching. This report provides an overview of the main findings from the 2021 Future Trends research project. The study was planned in 2020 and undertaken during a four-week period in June 2021.

A total of 1,380 responses were received over the four-week period, of which 1,266 consented to their data being included. Responses were received from 79 countries.

The questionnaire consisted of four streams: 1. Team coaching 2. Digital and online coaching 3. Future trends 4. Diversity and inclusion.’

Workshop 3: How can we be allies for inclusive coaching mentoring and supervision in complex systems?  7 April 2022 @ 13:00 UTC (14:00 CET/13:00 GMT) 1 hour 30 minutes duration

The workshop provides an opportunity with the authors and an expert panel to reflect on the research and identify practical actions for individuals and organisations, in relation to for example, allyship, unconscious bias, mentoring for underrepresented groups, global monitoring, humble enquiry and intersectionality.
