This program focuses on increasing your Coaching Ethics knowledge by having a clear understanding of the ICF and BCC code of ethics and the application to various coaching specific situations.
The most important part of coaching ethics is how to apply the code to your own coaching business practices and how having a solid coaching agreement can protect you and your clients.
You will learn in this course how coaches have been getting in ethical hot water, what they have done to get there so you don’t.
Understanding ethics also means understanding yourself, how you are currently operating and what might need to be tweaked to operate from an ethically clean place.
Things are rapidly changing in our growing industry. As the coaching profession’s visibility and exposure increases so does the need to operate ethically and protect ourselves from ethical complaints.
Learning from this Course includes:
Fieldwork: Each week students will work in a 1 hour peer group discussing an ethical dilemma’s determining breach of ethics code and if there is a way to course correct if you should land in a similar situation.
Frequency: This course is offered two to three times a year, depending on level of interest.
Ethics Expert and Instructor Tina Elliot, MBA, PCC, BCC is a past longtime member of both the ICF Global Ethics and Standards Committee & The ICF Independent Review Board and continues to work with the ICF on their Code of Ethics updates
Tina was very upbeat & knowledgeable and always very prepared for each class. I found there was a good balance of teaching and class discussion as well as highly relevant materials. I also enjoyed the good small group assignments and interaction. This class really got me thinking about the many types of ethical dilemmas that aren't as black and white as we would like them to be and the class discussions were super valuable!!!
Tina has a sense of humor, but knows this topic well and expressed the seriousness of adhering to the codes to stay out of "ethical hot water."
