    • Summary

      The Ethical and Professional Practice in Coaching webinar series defines ethical standards and expectations for professional coaches. Learners will identify individual barriers affecting the coaching process. Through continued development and collaboration opportunities, learners will identify ways to promote a coaching awareness and contribute to the practice of professional coaching.

      Learners will expand on their understanding of coaching and explore individual challenges and barriers that affect the coaching process, while also developing their skills to enhance and establish the mentoring relationship.
