2018 Series - Staying Out of Ethical Hot Water for Coaches is looking at “gray areas” of coaching ethics. This means, you may not find specific ICF ethics code for these gray areas, however a lack of awareness in these gray areas can lead to a breach of black and white ethics code.
In this lively discussion, we’ll be diving into multiple relationships with clients and sponsors and how without full awareness it could land a coach in ethical hot water.
We will be looking more closely at:
• Coaching family members, colleagues, partners or friends
• What could potentially happen in coaching when engaging with multiple relationships
• What about coaching family’s and other members of the family i.e. siblings, etc.
• What about coaching leaders and their subordinates at the same time
• We will review a multiple relationship ethical dilemma.
• What to do if you choose to have multiple relationships as a coach.
