Christian Life Coaching Ethics and Guidelines
I will hold myself accountable to the highest level of integrity, honoring Jesus Christ individually and corporately, in all my associations with clients and colleagues.
I will maintain complete confidentiality with my clients, within the confines of the law.
I will be clear with my clients about the nature of the coaching relationship, including structure, fees, refunds, expectations, and guarantees.
I will never give a client’s name to anyone, for any purpose, without their express permission.
I will give credit where credit is due for materials supplied by other sources, respecting copyrights, trademarks, and intellectual property.
I will judiciously avoid conflicts of interest. If any should arise, I will inform the concerned parties of my position, without delay.
I will represent myself honestly and clearly to my clients, and coach only within my areas of expertise.
I will actively pursue well-being, wholeness, and continual learning in my own life.
I will, if possible, refer a client to another coach if I am not within my area of expertise or comfort, so the client can find the best possible coaching match.
I will honor my Christian values in my professional conduct, placing neither blame nor blemish upon the Name of Christ, or the coaching profession.
