  • Wednesday, October 18, 2017
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Webinar Via Zoom


Registration is closed

ICF Raleigh is pleased to present 3 webinars on Ethics in the Coaching profession.  

October Webinar Description: You get a notification from an ICF (International Coach Federation) staff that someone has filed a complaint about you. The IRB (Independent Review Board) has determined that the case has legitimacy and you are asked to respond to the allegations. How do you feel?

Michael will describe the steps involved in the ECR (Ethical Conduct Review). This will be a discovery conversation on your ability to reflect and adjust. You will see how the ERC is more an educational process intended to improve your coaching business and your relationships with your clients, and less a punitive system of Do’s and Don’ts. This presentation will be fun – promise!

Learning Objectives: Attendees will gain a more complete understanding of ICF ethics by exploring the ECR process; examining their personal awareness of the ICF CoE (Code of Ethics); and determining their personal steps to establish a strong ethical basis for their coaching business.

This webinar is assigned 1 CCE for credential renewal purposes.


Dr. Michael J. Marx, MBA, PCC, CPCC is a Professional Certified Coach specializing in business coaching and corporate consultation. A strong advocate for professionalism in coaching, Dr. Marx has served on the International Coach Federation ‘Global Ethics & Standards’ committee and on the Ethics subcommittee for educating coaches on ethical practices. He currently serves as the leader of the ICF ‘Global Community of Practice on Ethics.’ He also serves on the ICF Independent Review Board.

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.
