Hi all,


We hope this finds you well. Some of you are probably getting ready for a break, others will work through the summer. At the Hub, we will take turns in going away, but it won't be without wrapping up a few things:

  • The OCP Mentoring Programme Pilot Evaluation
  • Launch the Mentoring & Coaching Hub website
  • Mentoring workshop happening in Oslo next week (June 18-20)


These lasts couple of months, we have also been busy with:

  • MSF Canada Mentoring Programme Pilot Evaluation
  • Coaching Education Summary Report
  • We started matching coaches from Cohort 1 of the Coaching Education
  • Were presented a prize as the winner of the 2017 EMCC Mentoring Award in Amsterdam


We also hosted a webinar, "Voices From the Field". Holly, Julie, Alan and Neil presented the preliminary results from the impact study of how mentoring supports the personal and professional development of MSF Field Managers and contributes more broadly to the strategic priorities of the Mentoring & Coaching Hub. Here is a link to the recording.


Enough of us, here are a few articles and podcasts we liked.


Have a great summer,



[PODCAST] Team Coaching Zone

Soon 100 podcasts, lead by Krister Lowe. Together with guests, they talk about team coaching approaches and methods using concrete cases. We suggest to start with this episode featuring Dr. Peter Hawkins, where he shares is journey from working with psychological therapy to organisational development.

Suscribe to the podcast on iTunes & Soundcloud.


An article from the Harvard Business review presents 5 empirically supported actions to hear critical feedback openly. How to use it for insight while not damaging one's self confidence. Patience, analysis, and communication are key! 

This article addresses how we react to pain, instinctively, and how we could react to it as a way of learning. The author pushes its readers to consider letting people around them hurt themselves in order to grow and develop.


David Clutterbuck highlights the practice of mentoring through health services without forgetting the various challenges faced by the sector. But, the future of mentoring is bright, also thanks to technology and particularly Artificial Intelligence.


Also about clinical mentoring, this is a great story from an American surgeon who plateaued and hired an old professor of his as a coach. The article also touches upon the use of coaches/mentors within education, and the value of reflecting on one's professional practice, even as an accomplished professional.
