The Practice of Internal Coaching by Human Resources Managers: Ethical Considerations

As more companies turn to internal coaching undertaken by HR managers it is more important than ever that the ethical implications are considered.

Organizations recognize the benefits of relying on internal coaches to maximize leadership development. As the practice of internal coaching evolves, corporate leadership considers Human Resources (“HR”) managers natural candidates for the role. Internal coaching undertaken by HR managers is expected to strike the balance between: 1) maintaining the content of the coaching sessions confidential and, 2) allowing for the reporting of employee development issues. A failure to adhere to these two responsibilities could enable potential ethical conflicts.
