Hilary will invite attendees to join in a collaborative discussion about Ethics and the role of Ethics in our Supervision, Mentoring, or Coaching practice. As Supervisors, one of our roles is to provide a level of assurance around the safety of the coach in terms of their clients and indeed the wider system. She will seek to lead a discussion to deepen the collective understanding of where our Ethics come from, and how that can help and how they can also hinder our thinking both as Coaches and as Supervisors or Mentors She will explore how decisions are often made regarding ethical dilemmas and she will then offer two ethical decision making models that she finds helpful,. Attendees may bring some ethical dilemmas to be explored and if time allows she can offer example ethical dilemmas to further aid discussion.
