Giving Orders or Going with the Flow

12pm – 1pm | October 17, 2018

Event Description: One of the greatest challenges facing a coach is know how to use direct communication without being directive. This webinar will focus on the ethical ramifications of going too far thus offending the client. Professionalism in coaching means finding the balance between helping the client with what they want and giving them what they need. This webinar will help you ensure that you have the client’s best interests at heart.

Learning points:

  • Safeguarding your coaching from overstepping the sensitive line of too much direct communication
  • Distinguishing between the ICF Core Competencies and the Code of Ethics
  • Using direct communication without being directive

Relevance to core competencies and code of ethics: Item 5 of Section 1, and 17, 20 of Section 3 of the 2015 Code of Ethics refer to the coach’s need to be aware of the nature of coaching and its boundaries. This presentation will give participants the wherewithal to set such boundaries.
