Ethical Dilemmas in Coaching: From Deviation to Transformation

Abstract : While ethical dilemmas can be apprehended as deviation for sound practice, this paper explores their potential for individual, organizational and industrial transformations. By tapping into the transformative learning and adult development literatures, we discuss why and how a higher order of consciousness, e.g. an ability to better embrace complexity, equips coaches to use dilemmas as a springboard to meaningful and transformative change in organizations.
