Not only does this give coaches and mentors guiding principles to work within and adhere to, but it also demonstrates to clients and prospective clients that coaches and mentors are following a recognised global code of practice.

There are 13 key points contained within the Global Code of Ethics, encompassing coaching excellence and professional conduct, in relation to client, business and professional development.

Coaches and mentors seeking accreditation need to demonstrate how they adhere to these ethical criteria.

Ask your coach or mentor to discuss how they undertake these points within the coaching/mentoring agreement and coaching/mentoring sessions.
