About the event
The Association for Coaching (AC) are delighted to welcome Shirley Schulz-Robinson for a workshop titled Ethical issues in Coaching: How to spot an ethical dilemma and what action can you take.
As coaches we confront of the issues constantly that can be classified as ethical dilemmas. Such dilemmas present themselves when a person either feels that they are being asked to do things that are against their moral values, or when they have a conflict between two or more of their own values within the coaching relationship.
The session will commence with a brief overview of ethical guidelines provided by coaching organisations, followed by a discussion on the challenges in interpretation of such guidelines, with a brief case study to help highlight such ethical struggles a coach may encounter.
