(Sue McMahon, Chair of ICF Ethics Indeptendent Review Board)

Many who work in the Talent Development field remain unaware of the importance of ethics when it comes to coaching or using coaching skills to support those they serve. Even if they are part of an association that has a code of ethics, the agreement to abide by these standards is often simply acknowledged by ticking a box. The deeper value of ethics often reveals itself only when a relationship with a client is impacted by unethical behavior. Whether you align with a code of ethics or not, there remains consequences to both the coach and the client when unethical behavior seeps in. Ethical conduct is not just a set of rules, but more importantly an understanding, and a conscious awareness for showing up in all relationships the same way you would with the most important people in your life. 

Bring your own "sticky situations" and coaching ethics questions to this session! 

After participating in this session, you will be able to:

  • enhance awareness of ethical behavior as a professional who coaches others
  • recognize potential "blind spots" and "pitfalls"
  • describe the value that ethical conduct offers your coaching relationships
  • be aware of the impact unethical behavior has on both you and your coaching clients
  • discover the most common ethical breaches by coaches
  • get answers and guidance on your own sticky situations in coaching others
This session is brought to you by ATDChi’s Executive, Team, & Group Coaching Professional Development Network (PDN).  ALL ATDChi members AND guests are welcome to attend.
