Testimonials for Tina Elliot’s Professional Coaching Ethics Course
- Staying Out of Ethical Hot Water

Tina Elliot really has taken my awareness of coaching ethics to a whole new level. Like most coaches, I thought I was very ethical and in many ways, I was. But in this course Tina helped me think more deeply about Ethics and become more profoundly aware of how I might not be serving my clients as well as I thought and how I might be leaving myself wide open for ethical hot water. Who knew? As a result, I feel so much better prepared for anything. I also feel that I’m serving my clients with a higher degree of ethical care. This course should be a “must take” for every professional coach.

As a participant in this course I realized ethical decision making is not a linear process, but rather involves a "renewing of the mind" approach. What I understand and value is that ethics is a philosophy of living well in. Perhaps the most significant learning outcome I gained is utilizing a framework that will guide me toward decisions with a clear conscious and sense of peace. Overall, this class reminded me of the importance of pursuing excellence and continual learning as a professional life coach.

I appreciated the entire package that was offered in this class. Tina was always prepared and well-organized; materials were sent to participants several days before meeting for the teleconference sessions. The class format was consistent and the group was focused. In addition, Tina has a calm way of explaining sensitive issues, as well as clearly differentiating ethical guidelines and laws; she emphasized the importance of increasing our ethical awareness and how to efficiently utilize the ICF/BCC codes.

In my opinion, this course should be a requirement for all coach training programs because the fundamental principles are intended to safeguard and empower professional coaches before conflicts arise with clients.

I liked what heard about this course and after academic interactions with Tina Elliot, I knew this was the course that would support me with coaching and living in Dubai. I’m a visual learner so the professional webinar and handouts before the each class help me synthesize the wealth of information from this course.

Working on the case studies really helped me understand the nuances of ethics. My coaching agreement has been amended by more than 50% and my ethical radar is now constantly spinning with higher awareness. The content was completely coach relevant and my confidence in operating ethically has soared. This is quality learning from a quality instructor who is well versed in coaching ethics and she makes it fun and engaging. I highly recommend this course to any coach who wants to take their ethical knowledge and competence to a higher level.

I was drawn to this course as it was specific to ethics in coaching. Not only did I receive ethical information and tools but left with a sisterhood of fellow professional coaches to draw resources from worldwide.

This course was on topic, on target, intelligent, insightful and it to the point. A good balance of education, communication and member input. It’s a great example of group interaction and should be a fundamental prerequisite to anything you do with a client. It’s an instruction book for success as a coach.

Tina Elliot creates a safe environment, she was free in sharing her experiences for education and heightened ethical awareness. I’m so excited about knowing the ethics codes and loved the real time study. I really enjoyed the entire process and highly recommend this program to all professional coaches.
