Three approaches to coaching ethics

Tatiana Krawczynska-Zaucha
Presentation and case studies

Abstract: The session aims to present three approaches to ethics in coaching as different but complementary paths to the maturity of a professional coach. Each of these paths mirrors the ethical sensitivity level and the integration of the coach’s own internal ethics. The result of understanding and integration are behaviors resulting from one approach to coaching ethics. The presenter will combine both spaces of ethics in coaching – theoretical and practical. After the presentation, the audience will be invited to discuss the raised aspects.
