ICF CCEUs: Core Compentency | 2.0

Join us for this "giant think tank", discussing and delving deep into the whole arena of ethics in coaching as it relates to the current version of the ICF Code of Ethics and Core Competencies, updated in 2021. We will introduce important definitions and distinctions that influence one's perspective around ethics. 

As coaches, we shape the profession of coaching. How we conduct ourselves impacts how the public perceives the coaching industry. Through our experiential time together, using case studies and examples, we will equip you with tools to explore ethical concerns, including those that lack clear-cut answers. Our aim is that you come away from this program empowered to courageously find your way forward with curiosity and ethical integrity.

Upon completion of this program, attendees will be able to: 

  • Establish an individual and personal sense of professional ethical conduct. 
  • Make distinctions between morals, values, and ethics and why that is professionally important in coaching.
  • Name key factors (the warning flags) and distinctions in the identification of potential professional ethical issues and how they impact the field of coaching and the public at large.

Kristen Bentley


Kristen BentlyMy coaching and leadership development lives at the intersection of personal development and social change and I focus on the inner work necessary for interpersonal, collective healing, systems change and liberation. I am passionate about creating containers for the unique individual in front of me to have a safe, non-judgmental, validating space to live into the wholeness of who they are, taking into consideration the social context and identity within which they have lived and continue to live. My ideal clients are socially, spiritually, eco-conscious high-achievers who work hard and care hard. I am not interested in supporting the unhealthy dominant norm push to strive, succeed, achieve, exploit, produce and burnout. I work best with people who want to discover greater WELLBEING, aligned purpose and contribution as a result of their own inner radical shift that liberates wholeness, authentic self-expression, true connection, embodied belonging and freedom. I am trauma informed (Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in training) and committed to my on-going learning to unpack my power and privilege given my social identity and positioning. {I am a white European (Finnish/Italian) Canadian settler - I live and reside between Canada (born and raised on the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnaabeg people) and Costa Rica (on the traditional land of the Chorotega people.) I am also a University educated, middle class, cis-gendered heterosexual female. I am mostly able-bodied with an invisible disability (hearing impaired.) I have a history of developmental trauma and I, myself, am in 12-step recovery. I was married for 27 years, now a divorced empty-nester with 3 grown sons.
