ICF Raleigh is pleased to present 3 webinars on Ethics in the Coaching profession. This webinar is LIMITED to 15 people and will NOT be recorded to ensure a confidential and robust conversation

In the September webinar, we will explore key concepts from the book “Ethical Maturity in the Helping Professions: Making Difficult Life and Work Decisions" by Michael Carroll and Elisabeth Shaw, as well as the idea of moral maturity.Topics include the difference between morals and ethics, why the contract you have with your coaching client is so important, and how situational factors influence ethical behaviour. Concepts include:

  • What is ethical maturity? What’s the difference between moral and ethical maturity and do we ever “arrive”? How do we make ethical decisions?
  • Personal factors that may influence unethical behaviour.
  • How to develop and sustain strategies to avoid being unethical.
  • A process to make good ethical decision.

This webinar is assigned 1 CCE for credential renewal purposes.

About the Series: 

Each webinar is assigned 1 Core CCEU in Ethics for credential renewal purposes, for a total of 3 Core CCEUs in Ethics if you participate in all three. Once you are registered you will receive a Zoom virtual room invitation a few days before the webinar to attend via the internet. To participate fully you will need a video camera and microphone attached to your computer. You must participate in the live webinar for the full hour to receive the CCEU.

As coaches, we face ethical dilemmas. Sometimes something doesn’t feel right, or sometimes we aren’t sure how to respond to a situation or request. In these three webinars, we will explore the difference between morals and ethics and what ethical maturity is, as well as what the ICF ethical standards are and what happens when an ethical complaint is lodged. We will close the series with a webinar of applying the ICF Code of Conduct to case studies. All webinars are designed to be highly interactive so bring your ICF Code of Conduct and participate in the discussions!

The webinars may be taken separately or as a series of three. Maximum participants in the first and third webinars is 15 per webinar to allow for a robust conversation. There will be no recordings for session 1 and 3, to ensure a confidential space to have the conversation.
