Thought Conductor Peer Coaching Group: Terms and Conditions of Participation
The Thought Conductor Peer Coaching system works for everyone when each coach consciously commits to the process. Therefore, in joining the Thought Conductor Peer Coaching Group, you are agreeing to:
- receive the sessions as a client with a genuine desire/need to be coached and authenticity as a client, and to expect only coaching (as opposed to consulting, mentoring, counselling or any other form of non-coaching support) from your peer coach;
- treat your client as you would a fee-paying client (any cost-incurring extras should be optional) and confirm that, although you may include the sessions you give as a coach in your client coaching hours log, this is not your main motivation for participating;
- suspend judgment of your coach’s individual style, and remain open, flexible and present to appreciating the reciprocal benefits;
- coach in a manner which reflects the Thought Conductor Coaching Philosophy and ICF Core Competencies and adhere to the ICF Code of Ethics, including but not limited to laws relating to confidentiality and data protection, and avoiding, or making your client aware of, any potential conflicts of interest;
- if you feel the need to debrief a reciprocal peer coaching experience with a third party, you agree to take this as a case to coaching supervision for appropriate, confidential, professional support. You may not discuss current reciprocal peer coaching experiences with other current reciprocal peer coaching partners, as it may compromise confidentiality and result in conflicts of interest and ethical breaches.
- sharing your name, email and mobile phone number
- give permission for your coach to include your details in their client coaching hours log;
- give permission for your coach to record the sessions.
- provide your partners with at least 24 hours’ notice should you need to cancel/re-schedule a session;
- compulsory provision of confidential feedback (not seen publicly) periodically as requested by Thought Coach;
- engage in mentoring or supervision if you experience repeated difficulty in coaching rounds, or if more than one reciprocal peer partner reports difficulty working with you.
