Critical Factors of Executive Coaching

Companies are similar to sports teams; they need regular coaching and guidance to be successful. And a truly notable coach can transform an average player into an extraordinary athlete. Likewise, executive coaching is an ongoing professional relationship, which helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of executive coaching, clients take action to deepen their learning, improve their leadership and performance, and enhance their quality of life.

“The Goal as an Executive Coach is to improve results in ways that are sustainable over time” -Andrew Neitlich, Center for Executive Coaches

Based on our proprietary training program, Core Events Training provides executive coaching, training and development programs focusing on building team dynamics and creating alignment strategies with people and processes. These are intense, results oriented leadership and coaching programs designed to build leadership at every level of the organization. We also identify gaps to success, increase trust in an organization, and work with teams through their transition or new integration challenges and changes.

Executive coaching, at any level of an organization, is the foundation for new or tenured professionals to continue to develop leadership qualities, define their brand, or build team and customer loyalty.

Leaders at all levels continue to be challenged to increase profit margins and to build productive high performing teams that can build market share and increase customer loyalty. The Merla Leadership Group offers direct coaching on how to build effective trust and loyalty strategies aimed to build confidence and leadership skills. The Executive Coaching Services are customized coaching sessions based on our first initial discussions that describe you and/or your organization’s needs.
To ensure Coaching is results oriented, typical engagements are at a minimum 6 months to 12 months. Coaching sessions can be scheduled via phone or web based calls conducted on a bi-weekly cadence or customized to meet demand.

International Coaching Federation Code of Ethics

At Core Events for Executive Coaching you will find we follow the ICF Code of Coaching Ethics listed below:

Part One: Definition of Coaching

• Coaching: Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
• A professional coaching relationship: A professional coaching relationship exists when coaching includes a business agreement or contract that defines the responsibilities of each party.
• An ICF Professional Coach: An ICF Professional Coach also agrees to practice the ICF Professional Core Competencies and pledges accountability to the ICF Code of Ethics.

In order to clarify roles in the coaching relationship, it is often necessary to distinguish between the client and the sponsor. In most cases, the client and sponsor are the same person and therefore jointly referred to as the client. For purposes of identification, however, the International Coach Federation defines these roles as follows:

• Client: The “client” is the person(s) being coached.
• Sponsor: The “sponsor” is the entity (including its representatives) paying for and/or arranging for coaching services to be provided.

In all cases, coaching engagement contracts or agreements should clearly establish the rights, roles, and responsibilities for both the client and sponsor if they are not the same persons.

Part Two: The ICF Standards of Ethical Conduct

Preamble: ICF Professional Coaches aspire to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects positively upon the coaching profession; are respectful of different approaches to coaching; and recognize that they are also bound by applicable laws and regulations.

5) I will conduct myself in accordance with the ICF Code of Ethics in all coach training, coach mentoring, and coach supervisory activities.

18) I will not become sexually intimate with any of my current clients or sponsors.

As an ICF Professional Coach, I acknowledge and agree to honor my ethical and legal obligations to my coaching clients and sponsors, colleagues, and to the public at large. I pledge to comply with the ICF Code of Ethics, and to practice these standards with those whom I coach.

If I breach this Pledge of Ethics or any part of the ICF Code of Ethics, I agree that the ICF in its sole discretion may hold me accountable for so doing. I further agree that my accountability to the ICF for any breach may include sanctions, such as loss of my ICF membership and/or my ICF Credentials.
