I've had many conversations about ethics with former clients and students. They call when they are facing a tough situation and are not sure which way to turn. Having a safe space to talk about ethical dilemmas is critical, and that’s why I’ve built a class to strengthen your ethics compass and build your community of practice.

Ethical challenges in our coaching practices are confusing and complex. They involve risks. They don't have clear "right" answers. They happen when you least expect them. They can knock you off center and threaten your ability to be the best coach you can be.

It's not a question of IF, but WHEN you will face an Ethical Challenge.

To be your best coach, even when these challenges come up... Be Prepared!

  • Understand the expectations for Ethical behavior
  • Think about Ethical challenges before they happen
  • Have honest conversations with experienced coaches to expand your thinking
  • Incorporate support for Ethical conduct into your business practices, conversations and agreements with clients, sponsors, and colleagues
  • Have a “life line” to trusted colleagues to talk through challenges when they occur

My Ethics in Coaching class will get your prepared!

The small class size and interactive facilitation creates meaningful conversation among experienced coaches about the real-life ethical challenges we face in our coaching practices.

This accelerated virtual learning experience takes place over the course of two live 90-minute on0line sessions with additional offline support integrated before and after each session. The benefits include:

  • Time in class to ask questions, learn from your peers, and share your experiences
  • Offline exercises and reflection prompts to extend the learning
  • Practical ways to improve your agreements and business practices
  • A chance to expand your community of practice
  • Proven course design by an instructor who understands adult learning and the fundamentals of ethics in coaching
  • Meets the ICF’s accreditation renewal requirement

Here's what an alumna shared about what she learned:

I signed up for the Ethics in Coaching course because I know that there is more complexity to ethics than immediately meets the eye.  I wanted to be sure I was maintaining the highest ethical standards.  The class assignments and discussion did, in fact, raise issues I hadn't considered.  For example, I participate in a coaches group where we continue our learning as coaches and sometimes share challenges we face with coaching clients.  Even though we don't share names or organizations, I decided to add a sentence to my coaching agreement that lets my client know this.  I feel this is another way my practice is maintaining the highest standards of transparency and confidentiality.

I also very much appreciated Sue's approach to the class.  She has excellent examples, content and facilitates a meaningful discussion.  The assignments helped me to reflect on our discussions and use what I learned.  I highly recommend this class for new and experienced coaches.
