    Coming to our members

    through partnership with ICF Heartland!

    How we show up as coaches is more than our presence or curiosity; it’s informed by our moral compass, which is guided by highly personal choices. For coaches who strive to fully embody the ICF Core Competencies, there’s often a tension between theory and reality. This session gives participants space to explore that tension, clarify their own ethical principles and reconcile them with the ICF guidelines, learn from peers, and be more confident about their ability to navigate tricky ethical situations.

    Demonstrates Ethical Practice is Core Competency number one for a reason: without an ethical underpinning to your work, all of the other competencies are compromised. The guidelines can seem clear-cut and unambiguous on paper, right? But you only have to have been coaching for a short time to realize that things can get a bit messy and the lines a little fuzzy out in the real world. This interactive session offers an in-depth critical review of the ICF Code of Ethics and explores the many situations that challenge our relationship to that Code. Through the presentation of video interviews with a diverse group of experienced coaches, real-life examples of ethics in action, and peer learning, participants will engage with the content and one another to deepen their understanding of what it means to make ethical practices the foundation of their coaching work

    Participants will leave with:

    1) An enhanced understanding through critical review of the first Core Competency and how it intersects with their individual coaching practice

    2) Strategies for working through common ethical dilemmas they might encounter as either an internal or external coaches

    3) Suggestions for how to talk about the Code of Ethics with their clients and integrate the principles into their agreements and ongoing partnerships

    The Herrington Group Race Matters Training moves participants to consider that race does not biologically exist. However, how we identify with race in the US is extremely powerful; it influences our experiences and shapes our lives. Race can predict where we live, where we work, how well we do in school, how long we will live and the outcomes we have in social, corporate, and government systems.

    While individual choices and racist ideas are damaging, racist policies have a much wider negative impact by threatening the commitment of equity and fairness for all in the healthcare, education, economic, criminal justice, and childcare protective services systems and others. To create an equal society, we must commit to making unbiased choices and embrace equity in all aspects of our lives.

    Participants in Race Matters Training gain insight on race and helps leaders of all levels internalize the reality that we live in a racially structured society with racist systems and policies and understanding that helps provide focus on developing foundational, sustainable solutions for the future. This unique leadership training incorporates interactivity and exercises that lead to resounding change and more inclusive leaders.  

    Core Coaching Competencies We Will Learn:

    • Creating awareness for coaches on race and its impact on systems and policies

    • Creating common language on race and racism

    • Developing new perspectives on racism, racial structures and racial inequity to help inspire focus and change
