This code is established exclusively for the practice of professional coaching.
It is opposable to all Simundia coaches and is based on the SFCoach code of ethics.
It aims to formulate deontological reference points, taking into account the specificities of coaching as a process of accompanying a person in his professional life.
This code of ethics is therefore the expression of an ethical reflection; it offers general principles whose practical application requires a capacity for discernment.
Article 1 - Coaching practice
The coach authorizes himself in conscience to exercise this function from his training, his experience and his supervision.
Article 2 - Confidentiality
The coach is bound by professional secrecy.
Article 3 - Established supervision
The professional practice of coaching requires supervision.
Article 4 - Respect of the persons
Aware of his position, the coach refrains from exercising any abuse of influence.
Article 5 - Obligation of means
The coach takes all the appropriate means to allow, within the framework of the request of the customer, the professional and personal development of the coachee, including by having recourse, if need be, to a colleague.
Article 6 - Refusal to take charge
The coach can refuse a coaching assignment for reasons specific to the organization, the applicant or himself. In this case, he indicates one of his colleagues.
Article 7 - Responsibility for decisions
Coaching is a professional and personal development technique. The coach therefore leaves all responsibility for his decisions to the coachee.
Article 8 - Formulated request
Any request for coaching, when it is taken in charge by an organization, answers two levels of request: one formulated by the company and the other by the interested party himself. The coach validates the request of the coachee.
Article 9 - Protection of the person
The coach adapts his intervention in the respect of the stages of development of the coachee.
Article 10 - Protection of organizations
The coach is attentive to the profession, the customs, the culture, the context and the constraints of the organization for which he works.
Article 11 - Reporting to the client
The coach can only report to the client within the limits established with Simundia.
Article 12 - Balance of the whole system
Coaching is carried out in the synthesis of the interests of the coachee and his organization.
