Without any doubt, 2020 has been a different and challenging year for many. We have all been forced to make huge changes in the ways we live our everyday life and in the ways we work, and the Mentoring&Coaching Hub is no different. Yet, in the midst of all the challenges, changes and uncertainties, new possibilities have also arisen, and 2020 has given us creative adaptions and ways of thinking differently.
Our Online Introduction to Mentoring Workshops continue to be a success, with a new module on psycho-social mentoring issues and a revised module on cultural diversity called "Mentoring Across Cultures". In November, we also offered our first online Coaching Skills Workshop, after running 5 in-person Coaching Skills Workshops at the beginning of 2020. As a response to Covid-19, short-term coaching was made available to MSF's global workforce, especially to staff whose work situation was drastically impacted by the pandemic. Meanwhile, we received 6 new team coaching requests, and 5 team coaching processes were continued or started, including online team coaching as a support to the OCB Southern Africa Field Recentralization Project. This year, the Team Coaching Impact Evaluation study was also concluded.
