EMCC Cyprus is pleased to run the fifth cycle of Solidarity Coaching to Non-Governmental Organisation (NGOs). The goal of this project is to support NGOs in achieving their goals and the goals of their executives/employees who participate in the coaching program.
The project offers coaching services to the executives/employees of NGOs taking part in the program to support them in developing their professional skills to maximize performance and improve effectiveness in their role.
Coaching services are offered pro bono by volunteer members of EMCC Cyprus. Each coaching programme includes up to six one-on-one coaching sessions.
Through this project, EMCC Cyprus contributes to the efforts of the organisations towards creating a better society. We are happy to share testimonials here.
Please reach out to us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
We will offer between 4-6 pro bono 1 hour sessions. The frequency of the sessions will be agreed on the introductory call.
Application process and timeline:
The project will run from April 2024 to June 2024 as follows:
There will be an introductory session with coachee and sponsor and we agree on the areas to focus on. However coaching is flexible so areas to focus might change depending on the coachees’ needs. There will be a closing session with the sponsor and coachee for a final evaluation of the coaching experience
Yes, we will provide a certification of attendance
This will be agreed during the introductory meeting – usually coaches are available both for online and in person sessions.
Nothing is compulsory – if the Coachee or the Coach are not happy with the progress this will be addressed to the sponsor and EMCC Cyprus and we can discuss the way forward.
Only the 1 or 2 coachees registered from the sponsor will participate. The company can assign more people from their team for a future programme.
Yes, this is possible and will be discussed during the closing session between the Coachee and the Coach.
You can volunteer to this project if you are:
“Ευχαριστούμε θερμά το ΕΜCC Κύπρου που μέσω του Solidarity Coaching πρόσφερε την ευκαιρία σε μέλη του προσωπικού μας να ενισχύσουν περαιτέρω τις επαγγελματικές τους δεξιότητες μέσα από ένα περιεκτικό και πολύ καλά δομημένο πρόγραμμα, το οποίο αποτέλεσε για αυτούς μια μοναδική εμπειρία η οποία τους πρόσφερε σημαντικά εφόδια και εργαλεία και τους γέμισε με αυτοπεποίθηση.
Συγκεκριμένα, το coaching είναι μία πρακτική που σε βοηθά να ξεδιπλώσεις τα ταλέντα σου, να πιστέψεις στα όνειρα σου και να πετύχεις αυτά που θέλεις. Με τη σωστή πάντα καθοδήγηση των coachers, μπόρεσαν να αντιμετωπίσουν και να βρουν λύσεις σε ζητήματα και καταστάσεις που αρχικά να φαίνονταν δύσκολες και να αντιληφθούν και να αναγνωρίσουν πράγματα σημαντικά και καθοριστικά για την επαγγελματική τους πορεία. Ήταν ένα όμορφο ταξίδι αυτογνωσίας και περισυλλογής.”
“As beneficiaries for several years of the Solidarity Coaching program provided by EMCC Cyprus in which the second and senior line management staff of "Hope for Children" CRC Policy Centre has participated we have seen valuable benefits in both the individual development of respective staff that have participated and in general to their respective team and the organization as a whole. More specifically the main benefits noted in the staff that participated was in enhanced self-awareness, an increase in self- confidence, along with bringing more depth to one’s knowledge and better well-being. At a more general level, we have noted more effective communication skills (i.e. giving more effective feedback, building relationships of trust), increase productivity of the manager’s team and bringing out the best of each team member.“
"The most valuable aspect of the coaching I received was the guidance to recognize that my role hovers between hands-on scientific technical work and more strategic managerial / coordination work. Through the coaching program I was able to identify the aspects that make my role a challenging balancing act, to work towards improving my work planning and productivity and to begin developing effective delegation skills. Thanks to guidance from my coach I was able to build on my self-confidence and to work towards improving my communication with other team members”
"Mosaik joined the programme in a very crucial time for the organization and its Director. The guidance provided through the project was at the exact time to give a new force to the ideas that established Masaik from the first place and led the organization to make leaps forward during an extremely short period of time. There is no doubt that the most important contribution of the project was the fact that it assisted its members to put priorities and objectives for the future in a realistic, achievable order. I'm wishing them all the very best for the future!"
“A positive outlook to our current situation which is complicated due to finding restrictions.”
"As a result of the program I feel more prepared to manage my team. It not only helped me identify new strategies but also helped me value those strategies. This combination will assist me in following through with my action plan.”
