The International Coaching Federation (ICF) has a code of ethics for credentialed coaches, and the coaching philosophy is a part of this code. True coaching involves holding space for a client to allow their personal growth to lead the coaching conversation. Coaches are not advisers, but rather active listeners who are not wedded to the outcome of any coaching conversation.
Core Competency #1: Meeting Ethical Guidelines and Professional StandardsUnderstanding of coaching ethics and standards and ability to apply them appropriately in all coaching situations.
Thank you for presenting the revised code of ethics in such an interesting format. I appreciate the examples provided here and it reconfirms for me the importance of clarifying ones role and liability at the contracting phase.
Thanks for this interesting and necessary article. I now have much more clarity about the standards of ethics as a coach. This is a daily challenge for me and this article provides me real examples that will help me to be a better coach. Congratulations! It would be useful if ICF create a CCE longer course on this subject in the future.
The article helped me clarify subtle situations that, while not covered in the code of ethics, can arise situations that involve us in ethical problems. It helped me think of situations that might hold me responsible.
I found the article very interesting because the examples show how we as coaches may overstep our boundaries because ethics is about grey areas (of dilemmas) where one is not sure of what step to take.
Thanks, this article and your website in general is very useful to me and places each approach of coaching at its place.I am a self taught coach , for the moment ( no opportunity yet to do a former training ) and wish to know as much as possible about ethics and code on conduct.Deep gratitude, sybille in neuchâtel, Switzerland
Excellent article clear precise and to the point. I found it extremely useful interesting and it added to my confidence and assurance and affirmed the ethics and practice I hold in high regard are on track with my core values as wellthank you
The initial codes developed were then transferred to subsequent studies, creating new ones when necessary. After completing this step of analysis, all codes and attached text were revised to ensure consistency of interpretation and to check whether additional coding was required.
The codes were then reviewed for similarities, differences and relationships, and were sorted into preliminary themes. This step also involved collating relevant coded data extracts within each of the preliminary themes. The initial codes and preliminary themes were developed iteratively by the first author (SA) and were discussed within the research team to ensure they reflected the analysed data.
As the authority on the CPT code set, the AMA is providing the top-searched codes to help remove obstacles and burdens that interfere with patient care. These codes, among the rest of the CPT code set, are clinically valid and updated on a regular basis to accurately reflect current clinical practice and innovation in medicine.
The clinical examples and their procedural descriptions, which reflect typical clinical situations found in the health care setting, are included in this text with many of the codes to provide practical situations for which the codes would be appropriately reported. It is important to note that these examples do not suggest limiting the use of a code instead, they are meant to represent the typical patient and service or procedure. In addition, they do not describe the universe of patients for whom the service or procedure would be appropriate.
Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, which requires a medically appropriate history and/or examination and moderate level of medical decision making. When using time for code selection, 30-39 minutes of total time is spent on the date of the encounter.
Medical knowledge and science are constantly advancing, so the CPT Editorial Panel manages an extensive process to make sure the CPT code set advances with it. The Panel obtains broad input from practicing physicians and the health care community to ensure that the CPT code set reflects the coding demands of digital health, precision medicine, augmented intelligence and other aspects of a modern health care system. This rigorous process keeps the CPT code set current with contemporary medical science and technology, so it can fulfill its vital role as the language of medicine today and the code to its future.
