Coaching and mentoring as an approach to professional development encourages the transfer of knowledge from the coach / mentor to the mentee. It is one of the most effective avenues for career growth

At IERD, we work with organizations on practical assignments that ensure that coaches transfer their skills to the organization’s employees enhancing their potential to perform better and be more productive.  The ultimate goal is to ensure that the employees are able to perform the tasks by themselves or with minimum support.

This approach has great potential in increasing job satisfaction, enhancement of employee’s skill level and professional development, enhancement of skill in problem analysis and strategic thinking as well as developing self-esteem

For the Organization, it will ensure higher employee retention, more skilled and well-performing employees and full utilization of human resources.

Our Coaching and Mentorship approach has three approaches

  • We recognize that supervisors and managers are best placed to coach the employees under them so we encourage organizations to invest in the supervisors and managers through our Coach the mentor (CTM) programme (provide a hyperlink to details). Through this programme, we transfer coaching and mentorship skills to ensure maximum skills transfer
  • We understand that the workplace is the best place where coaching and mentorship takes place so we work with M&E practitioners at their workplace and within their projects through our Smart Monitoring and Evaluation (SmartM&E) programme
  • We appreciate the value of internship programmes in building young professionals. We work with fresh graduates to inspire them on the best practices in monitoring and evaluation by placing them in projects through our

Evidenced-based M&E Champions (EMEC) Programme.( Hyperlint )Through this programme, we aspire to develop young skilled M&E professionals who can champion innovative monitoring and evaluation in projects
