Coaching across cultural boundaries presents numerous challenges for the ethical coach. How does bias play into our ethical behaviors? What cultural factors need to be taken into consideration when looking at ethics? How can coaches address cultural issues from the initial contracting to reduce the possibility of complaints and enhance their coaching? Marilyn O’Hearne, MCC and the Ethics Community of Practice discuss these questions and more during this intriguing session.
