ABOUT THE TOPIC

What is ‘ethics’? What does it mean to be an ethical coach?

If you have ever thought something like “I think I’m in way over my head!” or “How can I acknowledge my client’s vulnerability?”, “I’m not sure if this is the best approach to use but….” you are talking ethics.

Ethics, and ‘doing’ ethics in coaching is like any other coaching skill: it requires practice. A coach’s ethics competence and the capacity for ethical reflection grows over time and with investment.This session aims to enhance the participants’ capacity for ethical reflection and comfort by using tools that nurture an ethical coaching practice.

OBJECTIVES

During this session you will:

  • Identify and discuss core elements of cultivating ethical competence in professional coaching
  • Examine tools that support the development of skills in ethical reflection
  • Practice ‘doing’ ethics through case-based group exploration

ABOUT JONATHON GILCHRIST

Jon grew up under the wide-open skies of the Canadian prairies, and experienced the joys (and challenges) of farm life and work in Saskatchewan before pursuing training in ethics. For the past 12 years, Jon has lived and worked in Edmonton as a clinical ethicist supporting complex clinical and organizational decision making.

In 2017 Jon integrated a coach approach to ethics consultation and ethics leadership development, and now also serves in the health care environment as an internal coach. Recently, Jon launched his own coaching business that combines his passion for coaching with his love of outdoor adventure. When he’s not working in the health care context, you can find him sharpening his wilderness survival skills, planning and leading back-country retreats, or simply enjoying enjoying the river valley with his kids.
