VISCONTI established a code of conduct to ensure its clients:
The client may disclose some confidential information that is indispensable to the comprehension of operational aspects of the company.
This information must remain confidential between the client and the executive coach, which is why confidentiality is one of the key principles of the VISCONTI code of conduct.
The relationship is based on equal terms and mutual respect.
The executive coach does not impose his/her opinion. He/she helps the business leader to take a step back from his profession/position to get an objective view and transmits to him/her good practices, although it is the leader that makes all decisions.
The process must be independent. The client is the person being challenged, even if the mission is at the request of third parties (N+1 or HRD for example).
Moreover, the executive coach must be impartial and objective thus avoiding any conflict of interest linked, for example, to the capitalistic implications in the company.
There are inherent limits in the executive coach-client relationship in terms of support (even though VISCONTI accompaniment cannot be confused with behavioural coaching or psychotherapy).
To prevent from the transfer phenomenon, the executive coach himself is challenged by another VISCONTI executive coach through a supervision system. The introduction of a third person in the executive coach-client relationship helps to limit several undesirable effects such as counter-transfer.
The executive coach-client relationship is covered by a written contract adapted to the client’s needs in which, the executive coach includes the code of conduct to which he/she refers in the appendices of this document.
