Your place of mine? Would you have a candle-lit dinner with your coachee? And other ethical dilemmas

In 2017 EMCC International Research conducted a survey about ethical awareness amongst EMCC membership. The results gave an eye-opening insight into how we as coaches, mentors, and supervisors think we would deal with a range of issues such as:

• Being asked to coach the teenage daughter of a very controlling father who wants to know his child’s secrets;
• Coaching while feeling unfit to work because of stress and lack of sleep.

How would you respond to such ethical dilemmas and others? Come to our workshop and find out!


Alexander Vreede was EMCC International Treasurer and Executive Board member from 2009-2015. In this role he was involved in all developments around the co-operation between EMCC and ICF and the Professional Charter for Coaching and Mentoring. He is now a member of the EMCC Ethics WorkGroup. In this role he was intensely involved in the setting up of the Global Code of Ethics (GCoE). At present he is working on the 2nd version of the GCoE and the updated version of the EMCC Complaints Procedure. He is accredited with EMCC at Senior Practitioner level. From 2012-2018 he was an assessor for EIA and EQA and acted as chair of the Dutch and the EMCC Accreditation Panel.
