Ethics & Standards

As a member of the Ethical Coaching Collective, I am committed to upholding the Ethics standards of this certifying body, and maintaining the Vital Skills described below with continued learning and supervision support of the organization. 

Vital skills

  1. I coach in a way that takes into account both the conscious and unconscious minds.

  2. I have a functional understanding of how the brain and nervous systems work, and my coaching can effectively guide change through the interplay of mind and body.

  3. I have a skillset that is evidence-based.

  4. I coach in a non-hierarchical, client-centered way, empowering the client with the awareness and tools to direct their own path and change their own minds instead of creating a dependence on me. 

Ethical Standards

  1. I do not coach without consent.

  2. I do not sell coaching without consent.

  3. In marketing and selling, I will treat people the way I would treat my clients: with respect, transparency, thoughtfulness, and genuine care for their well-being.

  4. The best that anyone can be in our presence is our thoughts about them. I base all our work with clients in unconditional positive regard. If I cannot feel unconditional positive regard for someone (and that’s okay because I'm human), I refer them out to someone who can.

  5. I understand that neither human development nor coaching happens in a social and political vacuum. I will be outspoken about my values and make business decisions that reflect them. I will never put profit above values. 

  6. I believe in every human’s capacity for healing, change and growth, and the reality of miraculous quantum change, AND I do not bypass slow, steady, repeated work and cultivation of the grounded presence it takes to stay with things that take time.

  7. I stay fiercely awake and present to pain and suffering inherent in life and the world, but I do not let it overwhelm me and stop me from believing in the magic and fun of coaching work.

  8. I am open to all possibilities but I am dogmatic about nothing.

  9. We don’t do gurus. We don’t do cult-y thinking. You are the best authority on you, the client is the best authority on themselves, and we do not endorse outsourcing decision-making or responsibility for how we experience the world and create our reality to anyone else.

  10. I would rather be curious than be right.

  11. I do not aim to be a perfect practitioner or perfect human; I aim to learn, do a little better than yesterday, and have fun.
