written byErickson Coaching Internationalon 29/05/2018

Erickson Coaching International is proud to announce our expansion into Kenya!  

Working with our first partner in Africa, Rise & Learn, Erickson Kenya will be providing coach training throughout Kenya in Nairobi, Mombasa, and Naivasha.    

Rise & Learn aims to impact lives and multiply the impact - assisting individuals in their self-discovery journey and building their strengths to become a better leader. Their vision is to expand coaching knowledge and practice in Kenya, make it easy and affordable for people to access coaching. 

Rise & Learn was established by Emily Kamunde-Osoro, an HR Professional with a deep a passion for Leadership development. Emily was able to join us in person at the Erickson head office in March 2018 and share her thoughts and excitement at becoming part of the Erickson community with us:

"Why Erickson? When I went to the Erickson website and saw the mission 'Changing the World, one conversation at a time…' I knew this is the type of company I was looking for. It was so profound and spoke to my innermost desire to change people’s lives. It was also very much aligned to Rise & Learn’s vision, values and our tagline ‘Impacting lives and Multiplying the impact’."

Coaching is such a powerful tool for change; I have seen it transform individuals and organizations and I want more people to share in this leadership technique. They say if you can’t coach, you can’t lead. From my own experience, I have seen the transformational impact of coaching among leaders hence my desire to grow myself and others. Seeing others thrive gives me goosebumps, especially if I have made a contribution to their success and what better way to do this than through coaching!

I look forward to working with the Erickson family, I am thrilled and honored to be part of this great community."

A strong, dedicated team of 7 staff members, Rise & Learn looks forward to sharing the stories of others who have experienced coaching and coach training and how it helps to empower and liberate individuals to become better at what they do.

We wish the Rise & Learn team all the best and look forward to a prosperous future for Erickson Kenya.
