Coaching and Ethics
Henley Business School's Centre for Coaching is actively engaged in a series of research studies connected to Coaching Ethics.
In the first study we surveyed over 100 coaching supervisors.
This was followed by work with a sample form this group, and involved semi-structured interviewed to develop a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by coaches in their practice. We are currently analysing the results from this with a view to publication later in the year.
The third study involved a series of interviews with regulators. This helped us understand the perspective of the police, professional bodies, insurers and others to coaching practitioners behavioural choices. This work is currently being developed into a journal paper for publication.
The European Coaching and Mentoring research project included an ethical dimension, and we are developing a paper on this, exploring ethical choices to dilemmas, and this will feature in the ICF UK conference Paper to be presented by Jonathan Passmore in 2018.
Our work on ethics is continuing with a book which is currently being written by Eve Turner and Jonathan Passmore for publication in early 2020.
