As a credentialed member of the International Coaching Federation, Janet Hulet is committed to maintaining and promoting excellence in coaching. Therefore, ICF expects all members and credentialed coaches to adhere to the elements and principles of ethical conduct: to be competent and integrate ICF Core Competencies effectively in their work.
In line with the ICF core values and ICF definition of coaching, the Code of Ethics is designed to provide appropriate guidelines, accountability and enforceable standards of conduct for all ICF Members and ICF Credential-holders, who commit to abiding by its ICF Code of Ethics. https://coachfederation.org/
I maintain the strictest levels of confidentiality with all client and sponsor information unless release is required by law.
When acting as a coach, coach mentor, coaching supervisor or trainer, there are conditions under which confidentiality may not be maintained (e.g., illegal activity, pursuant to valid court order or subpoena; imminent or likely risk of danger to self or to others; etc). Where I reasonably believe that because one of the above circumstances is applicable, I may need to inform appropriate authorities.
As an ICF coach, I acknowledge and agree to honor my ethical and legal obligations to my coaching clients and sponsors, colleagues, and to the public at large. I pledge to comply with the ICF Code of Ethics and to practice these standards with those whom I coach, teach, mentor or supervise.
