Confidentiality and your privacy is a high priority. You are also expected to respect the privacy of Aspire Business as well. While you’re free to share what you experienced and learned -- please treat as confidential any specific business materials, activities, documents etc obtained from Aspire Business .
Coaching log. As part of an ongoing professional coach credentialing process, I may document client names, contact information and session times in a confidential log. The log does not include the topics discussed. Where meetings include consulting, teaching or other services in addition to coaching the amount of time spent coaching will be documented. This log of cumulative coaching hours is periodically submitted to certifying bodies (e.g. International Coach Federation) who also hold it in confidence. Occasionally these certifying bodies audit the submitted logs, so it is possible although unlikely you may be contacted to verify that a coaching relationship existed. In this unlikely situation we appreciate your cooperation which enables your practitioner to continue professional development.
Supervision & Call Recordings. Calls are usually recorded without further permission for confidential use for the practitioner’s professional development. I may share these recordings and/or discuss sessions with mentors, supervisors, legal advisers or credentialing boards when deemed appropriate for learning and professional development. I will make good faith efforts to ensure these parties keep everything strictly confidential. Whenever possible, client names are not mentioned and identifying personal details are omitted or changed.
Teaching Situations & Case Studies. I may mention topics or situations discussed but will be careful to not to mention personally identifying details without your permission.
Administrative Assistance. From time to time administrative help may be retained for matters such as data entry, bookkeeping, etc. In the course of performing such duties these professionals may have access to confidential client data. Reasonable good faith efforts will be made to ensure that privacy and confidentiality is maintained throughout all such processes and by all such individuals.
Miscellaneous. You should also be aware there are various risks to your privacy that are out of our control. Among them, email and the phone are not completely secure means of communication. If, for example, you have concerns about being at risk for domestic violence, or child custody battles, or a dispute with a business partner, this may be an area of concern for you. In such cases you should seek help from legal and privacy experts to help you with that. While your privacy is important to us, you should know that we do not make any promise to fund a court battle in the highly unlikely case a court order required us to disclose information.
