Ethics Guidelines of our Coaches

Basic Attitude
Haufe coaches
1
represent a resource-oriented image, respect the dignity and self-determination of the coachee, their personal rights and their individuality.
2
have a clear understanding of their role, a professional attitude and carry out their work independently and with integrity.
3
are constantly striving for their own further education and development (attending seminars, congresses, supervision groups, etc.).
4
feel committed to the following values in their work:
RespeCT

they strive to understand the coachees personal perspectives and values and support them in finding solutions that are consistent with them.

Empowerment

they work with coachees in order to create awareness of their own strengths, rights and responsibilities.

PROTECTION

they create a safe space for confidentiality, transparent handling of conflicts of interest and are sensitive to potentially destructive tendencies on the part of the coachee.

Responsibility

they pay attention to all contracts containing information on the objectives and framework conditions of the coaching, in which their responsibilities as a coach are also clearly regulated.

COMMITMENT

they practice your profession with a sincere interest in the well-being of the coachee.

5
reject activities and assignments which fail to comply with their skills or values or which could lead to conflicts of interest.
6
explicitly dissociate themselves from techniques of L. Ron Hubbard and from organizations that oppose or question the liberal-democratic basic order.
Professional Relationship
Haufe coaches
1

work on job-related topics with the aim of rendering themselves unnesseary; they avoid creating permanent dependencies.

2

work based on a clear and mutual understanding of goals and processes.

3

are sensitive to the limits of their work: if they are under the impression that the coachee no longer benefits from working together, they recommend a colleague or ask for support from another profession (e.g. therapy).

4

try to avoid conflicts of interest; if they arise, they will address them openly in order to find a suitable solution for all parties concerned.

5

strive for appropriate and culturally or socially correct behaviour.

6

work on behalf of Haufe Coaching.

Privacy
Haufe coaches
1
guarantee the confidential handling of information they receive during the process.
2
keep documents related to the process (notes, minutes, etc.) safe, i.e. inaccessible to third parties and will destroy them after the coaching is completed. Applicable data protection regulations are binding for them.
3
reject the thought of consciously using the received information for personal, financial or professional gain.
4
will only pass on personal information in two cases: either in consultation with the coachee or if required by law (e.g. as part of a criminal investigation).
5
inform authorities as soon as an intention to endanger oneself or others becomes apparent.
