Feature Presentation: Coaching Ethics: Unpacked!

During the feature presentation, three ethics experts from around the globe, Ms. Janine Schindler, MCC from New York City, Ms. Lola Chetti, MCC from Hong Kong, and Mr. Gürkan Sarıoğlu, PCC from Turkey help deepen our awareness and skills around the foundational aspect of coaching - ethical behavior.

This highly interactive session will dive into how ethics are woven into all the core competencies, encourage personal reflection, and offer practical application in a safe, small group format to work through real-life ethical dillemmas. 

Our presenters will provide some ethical vignettes to discuss during the breakout sessions. If you have an ethical dilemma you'd like to discuss within your small group, you are invited to share. If you do, please read the guidelines below for how to prepare/frame the dilemma for an effective discussion.

Presentation Objectives:

As a result of this session, participants will

  1. Deepen our chapter members' awareness and skillfulness around ICF Ethics.
  2. Invite each of us to step into a higher level of ethical behavior 
  3. Providing practical reflection and tools on how members can identify ethical challenges
  4. Share various ways in which coaches can effectively work through their challenges 
  5. Provide a good start to the journey to ethical maturity


Before there were laws, there were ethics...

We can imagine our ancestors around a camp fire sharing with the young ones:
“We do not leave our old ones behind …
Feed the sick and hungry first…
Do not do to others what you do not wish to be done unto you”.

Now, imagine life in a state where our behaviors were only bound by laws. Instead of having ethics to guide us, our only recourse in this world if we felt someone behaved badly, would be in a court of law. What would life in that state be like?

Luckily, we as ICF Coaches don’t have to imagine that scenario because as members of our ICF coaching community our behavior is dictated by a moral compass, social conscience, and values in addition to laws. Doesn’t this state feel so much more trustworthy and colorful?

You likely already know that ethical behavior is foundational to coaching. Through this presentation we hope to bring those ethics to life for you by focusing on real life ethical dilemmas and cultivating an awareness around thinking ethically in all aspects of your coaching interactions.

At the conclusion of this presentation it is our hope you’ll no longer view ethics as something to remember when it’s needed, but as something which is an integral part of your daily coaching practice.

As a result of this session, participants will

  • Understand how coaching ethics runs through all the ICF core competencies
  • Have the oportunity to look into ethics not as something to remember when it is needed but as something which is an integral part of their daily practice
  • Be provoked to cultivate an awareness of how to think ethically on every interaction they have in their relationship with their coaching stakeholders
  • Parcipate in discussion and learn concrete methodologies of dealing with ethical dilemmas 
  • Explore through case studies of typical and hypothetical situations, what might be the ethical implications

Pre-Session Preparation:

We highly recommend that eveyone attending this session review the ICF Code of Ethics in Advance:

There will be several small group breakout discussion sessions that will review prepared ethical vignettes as well as any real-life ethical dilemmas shared by particpants. If you choose to share a dilemma from your personal experience, please reflect and frame it for discussion as:
 - Describe the ethical challenge
 - What could be explicit guidelines to help you with this situation (ex ICFCode of Ethics)?
 - What are implicit guidelines that help you to receive additional perspective in this challenge?
 - What are the roles rights and responsibilities of all the parties involved in this case?

I am Mauritian-French, educated in Europe and I have worked in Europe, Mauritius and across Asia. I started my career in the judiciary, transitioned as volunteer social worker where I learnt the value of coaching as a vehicle for leadership development and then went to business school graduating with a master in Coaching and Consulting for Change. My career and wide exposure prepared me for my work as an international coach and leadership facilitator, I connect easily with people of all cultures and engage others with interest and ease. In my work as an Executive Coach for the past 12 years, I have worked with people from a variety of industries from retail to luxury goods to the shipping industry. In my long-term coaching contracts with organizations, I find myself coaching the senior leadership team and designing leadership training for the sales, sourcing and account management teams. In my work, I bring together with my commitment, a deep experience of organizations (ex: the unseen side –be it the undercurrents of stakeholder relationships or decoding the organization culture); and a reliable knowledge of leadership best practices and published research on Organizational behavior and leadership.

I also designed and deliver a 125 hours ACSTH-ICF accredited course for Coaching Leaders in organization. Coach Ethics, Brain Science Coaching, Narrative Intelligence and Talent management are core subjects.

In Hong Kong, I work with both local business and multinationals. My clients hail from a variety of industries and cultures.

I am also the INSEAD designated alumni Coach for Hong Kong since 2018:
INSEAD - where I together with another person developed the career coaching playbook destined for the global coaches.

Coaching Approach

In my coaching practice, I blend the systemic and the humanistic approaches together with other techniques grounded in research and a clear business focus to guide my clients towards more impactful results for themselves and their stakeholders. The humanistic approaches focus on the client whilst the systemic focuses on the internal and external forces that the coachees have to understand in order to be effective in their positions. I place emphasis on leadership behaviors and stakeholders’ management and they are essential components of leadership success.
