This conversation will examine the many aspects of ethics, beginning with why we should be concerned about them and what we mean when we refer to ethics.

During this conversation, we will learn about the considerations and intentions of the ICF Code Review Team as they shaped the newly revised Code of Ethics.

Our discussion will explore subjects such as…

  • What does it mean to be ethically mature?

  • How do we define an ethic of trust?

  • What factors motivate and contribute to harming others?

  • What is the interaction between our ethics and our coaching relationships?

Attendees will gain insight into the changes in the 2015 and 2019 Codes. The ICF Code of Ethics has been written to provide assistance to coaches by directing them to ethical factors to consider when faced with unanticipated issues and situations. In so doing, the intent is to help identify options and paths forward that are consistent with the goals and expectations of the ethical standards.

Samuel P. Magill Sr.
Coaching Supervision and Ethics Training

Sam is the first major explorer of Coaching Supervision in the Americas. (Another fine coach was the first, followed by Sam six months later.) He introduced supervision training in North America in 2012. He has taught in both English and French and has supervision clients – groups and individuals – around the world.   

Sam had been coaching since about 1990 and has been teaching coaching since he joined the Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara’s faculty in 2002. He left Hudson to attend the Coaching Supervision Academy in 2009.

Sam currently serves as Vice-Chair of ICF’s Independent Review Board where he focuses on ethics education. He served on the ICF Code Review Team in 2018 and 2019 - the group which shaped ICF’s newly revised Code of Ethics. His passion for ethics began at a very early age when he began asking, “What is happening here?” and “What is the right decision or action in the face of all that we know?”

Sam lives near Seattle, Washington, where he enjoys the bounty of nature, the mountains, and especially sea kayaking. He authored a book of poems in 2006 title, Fully Human.
