Personal Code of Professional Ethics
Formed in 1995, the International Coach Federation is the today's leading global organization with over 17,000 members, dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high professional standards, providing independent certification, and building a network of credentialed coaches.
As a member of the International Coach Federation, I pledge to comply with ICF Standards of Ethical Conduct, to treat people with dignity as free and equally human beings, and to model these standards with those whom I coach. If I breach this pledge of ethics or any ICF Standards of Ethical Conduct, I agree that the ICF in its sole discretion may hold me accountable for so doing. I further agree that ICF's holding me accountable for my breach may include loss of my ICF membership or my ICF certification. As a professional coach, I acknowledge and honor my ethical obligations to my coaching clients and colleagues and to the public at large.
Coaching is a profession that has grown exponentially over the past 15 years and not all those representing themselves as coaches are trained professionals within the field. The ICF Code of Ethics, Complaint Process and Credentialing Process establish a foundation for self-regulation. However, only those coaches who are members of the ICF fall under this form of self-regulation.
There are hundreds of training organizations in the US and abroad and yet only about fifty of them are ICF Accredited Coach Training Programs. I was trained and certified through one of the ICF accredited programs through iPEC Coaching. iPEC received its accreditation with the International Coach Federation (ICF) in January 2002 and is known as a pioneer within the Coaching industry. I earned my certification through iPEC Coaching with the designation of Certified Empowerment Coach (CEC). The iPEC Coaching curriculum meets and exceeds the educational requirements established by the ICF for coach training institutions and fulfills ICF requirements for post-graduate credentialing through the ICF. iPEC
I encourage you to interview me when selecting a coach to find out if I am someone you can easily relate to so that we can create the most powerful partnership with your success as our highest agenda!
The ICF recommends the following questions to ask prospective coaches:
- What is your coaching experience (number of individuals coached, years of experience, and types of coaching situations)?
- What is your coach-specific training (enrolled in an ICF approved training program, other coach-specific training, etc.)?
- What is your coaching specialty or areas in which you most often work?
- What specialized skill or experience do you bring to your coaching?
- What is your philosophy about coaching?
- What is your specific process for coaching (how sessions are conducted, frequency, etc.)?
- What are some coaching success stories (specific examples of individuals who have succeeded as a result of coaching/how the coach has added value)?
I encourage you to invest the time to get to know me and find out if we are a good match! One call could be all you need to get on the Path of Success to take your life, your business and your relationships to new heights and new beginnings!

"The Inside-Out approach to personal and interpersonal effectiveness means to start first with self; even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self with your paradigms, your character, and your motives. The Inside-Out approach says that private victories precede public victories, that making and keeping promises to ourselves precedes making and keeping promises to others. It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try and improve relationships with others before improving ourselves." - Stephen R. Covey
Remember - Only you can make the call and take action!
