I have heard people give a view supporting each position.  Internal coaches, for example, can feel themselves unable to decline assignments that they think are unsuitable because they don't think coaching is the right intervention or they are not sure of their skillset in relation to the particular coachee.  External coaches can believe themselves 'guilty' through ignorance as they try to work with conflicting messages about the contracted purpose of the coaching.

What have you experienced in either setting?  Maybe we have members who have been in both situations?

Dear Julie  

I think it would be good for the Ethics Challenge of the Month to include the survey conducted by Coaching at Work Magazine on poor practice, see link below:


https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/poorpractice2010

And see how it generates further discussion.

 

Please note that the closing date of survey is 14 May.

 

Thank you,

Ho
