Becoming the Ultimate Professional Coach: Critical Reflection, Ethical Integrity and Coach Maturity

September 06, 2023
01:00pm to 02:00pm ET

If we were to ask the question "Are you an ethical coach?" Then "Yes", is of course our initial answer. We like to believe we are. Yet the coaching landscape, like all of life, is fluid and so our thinking and practices are required to be continuously challenged. Ethics is fundamental to who we are as people, how we work with and serve others. How we show up!! And coaching, a relatively new and diverse helping field of practice, with influences from a broad range of domains, has struggled to find its legitimacy: ethics helps towards that desired outcome.

Wendy-Ann Smith and Jonathan Passmore will discuss ethical practice, maturity and coaching with professional integrity based on their latest publication: The Ethical Coaches’ Handbook: A Guide to Developing Ethical Maturity in Practice with the voices of leading names in the field of coaching, scholarship, and ethical thinking.

A vital resource for coaches no matter your coaching philosophy, training, or experience. One step towards supporting coaching and coaches to find legitimacy and develop into an ever more mature practice.
