In the natural course of executive coaching, managing ethical challenges for ourselves and our clients can be a real issue. How we help our clients discover a path forward that maintains their trust, integrity and standing in their workplace requires an understanding of the ICF Code of Ethics. The Code creates a framework to navigate successfully how we help our client manage these challenges.

In the November ECSIG, participants will discuss real life ethical issues and conflicts of interest that impact our clients. An understanding of coaching ethics and the code of conduct standards, and the ability to apply them appropriately in all coaching situations will be central to the outcomes of this CCEU event.

Participants will:

1) Discuss a meaningful conflict of interest case study to understand how to apply the core competencies in the work of executive coaches;

2) Discuss two cases of ethical dilemmas leaders and executives can face in the execution of their work; and

3) Explore ethical challenges that more frequently challenge executive coaches in their engagements with sponsors and clients.

ICF Gulf Coast member Craig Juengling, PCC will facilitate discussion among participants to drive home these key concepts.

1.5 ICF Core Competency CCEUs have been approved for this Special Interest Group event.
