International Coach Federation (IFC) Code of Ethics
Presented By: Amie Gatewood
Professor Troy Cox

The ICF Standards of Ethical Conduct

I will conduct myself in a professional manner that reflects positively upon the coaching profession.
II. Professional Conduct with Clients

I will accurately identify my qualifications, expertise and experience as a coach.
III. Confidentiality / Privacy

I will respect the confidentiality of my client's information, except as otherwise authorized by my client, or as required by law.

I will obtain agreement from my clients before releasing their names as clients or references, or any other client identifying information.
The International Coach Federation adheres to a form of coaching that respect and honor clients as the expert in his/her life and work. Standing on this foundation, the coach's must :

Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve;
Encourage client self-discovery;
Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies;

Hold the client responsible and accountable.

I will not knowingly exploit any aspect of the coach-client relationship for my personal, professional or monetary advantage or benefit.
I will not become sexually involved with any of my clients.
I will refrain from engaging in conduct or making statements that may negatively impact the public's understanding or acceptance of coaching as a profession.
I. Professional Conduct at Large
IV. Conflict of Interest

I will disclose to my client all anticipated compensation from third parties that I may receive for referrals of that client.
I will seek to avoid conflicts between my interests and the interests of my clients
As a professional coach, I acknowledge and agree to honor my ethical obligations to my coaching clients and colleagues and to the public at large. I pledge to comply with the ICF Code of Ethics, to treat people with dignity as independent and equal human beings, and to model these standards with those whom I coach. If I breach this Pledge of Ethics or any part of the ICF Code of Ethics, I agree that the ICF in its sole discretion may hold me accountable for so doing. I further agree that my accountability to the ICF for any breach may include loss of my ICF membership and/or my ICF credentials.
