Welcome to the first EMCC APR ethics and coaching 2024 meet. In continuation to our last meeting in 2023, we are delighted to host our speaker Kathryn Krase one more time to have an in-depth exploration on ethical advocacy for coaches.

In addition to our usual quartlery discussion on normative ethics and its relation to coaching ethics, we invite you to join our monthly-meet book study group on ethics (email APR Ethics Lead Anindita Das at to find out more).

About the session

  • Identifying topics of concern for coaches – what should coaches ethically do, in response to ethical concerns
  • Knowledge about representation/leadership
  • Higher level advocacy: coalition building
  • Case example
  • Recentering: Ethical principles, personal/professional concerns, our knowledge, skills, values and power

About Ethics and Coaching

Coaching being a fluid profession to put the coachees' needs first, ethical decision-making in this profession is challenging at its best; downright difficult at its worst – for the simple yet profound reason that ethics is the only non-negotiable dynamic in this co-created space. We cannot ignore ethics as professional coaches not only because it defines who we are individually and but also who we are as a society. For the truth remains that our society might fall into chaos if we accept that each of us could pick and choose what the 'right' thing to do is. As Albert Einstein said "relativity applies to physics, not ethics"

The invitation is to take part in the discussions to set the standards of best practices in coaching in ethical terms and advocate the norms of behavior that everyone in coaching, mentoring and supervision should follow. Download your copy of EMCC Global Code OF Ethics in your language here.
