Before you may join a round of ReciproCoach you must become an approved member. In order to get approved, you need to provide evidence of the coach-specific training or education you have done and/or any coaching certification or qualifications you hold.

All memberships last for 365 days. All memberships, including free memberships, need to be renewed to continue. This ensures that all members are active. If you do not renew, your account will be deactivated and you will no longer be able to access the community.

It is recommended that you subscribe to and remain subscribed to the weekly ReciproCoach email updates. This ensures that all ReciproCoaches are aware of current updates and changes to the ReciproCoach program.
Members of ReciproCoach are expected to adhere to the codes of ethics set out by the
, as well as their respective coaching standards/masteriescompetencies at all times in interaction with other ReciproCoaches.
Members of ReciproCoach are encouraged to maintain their own professional insurance. The Owner/Coordinator will not be held liable for the coaching provided by any members of the ReciproCoach Community.
The ReciproCoach system works for everyone because each coach consciously commits to it.
By participating in
coaching or mentoring rounds
, you are agreeing to:
understand that although we do our best to make favorable matches for all participants, you may not get all or any of your preferences for a coach, mentor or supervisor met;
be available for at least 85% of the round in order to complete the sessions between the specified end and start date and maintain ongoing momentum;
give the required number of hours specified in the round and treat your client as you would a normal, fee-paying client;
receive the required number of hours specified in the round with genuine willingness/need (or in the case of gift rounds, arrange for your giftee to receive the required number of hours);
be available to complete the hours between the specified end and start date;
contact your assigned matches within one week of receiving notice of your assignments, unless you advise your coordinator otherwise;
report your progress steps in a timely manner using the online progress system and understand that you will receive automatic and manual reminders from your coordinator if you do not;
leave feedback on both your reciprocal partners using the online progress system and without compromising confidentiality and that you will continue to receive automatic and manual reminders from your coordinator until you do;
give permission for your reciprocal partners to leave feedback on you and that this feedback appears on your profile, unless you choose to hide it;
agree to coach in a manner which reflects the
coaching standards/masteries/competencies and uphold their codes of ethics;
agree to suspend judgment of your partners, including your coach and the methods s/he uses to coach you, and remain open, flexible and present to appreciate the reciprocal benefit of the partnership. However, if you genuinely feel you and your partner do not have a good fit you may end coaching at any time via the online system under the agreement that you are willing to complete the remaining hours with a different partner or will provide a substitute ReciproCoach;
complete the required number of hours in both reciprocal roles, with the understanding that if for any reason a reciprocal relationship ends prior to the completion of the required number of hours, should either party wish to complete the hours with another partner, both will be required to do so and will be automatically placed into a new round and assigned new matches for the remaining hours;
provide your partners with at least 24 hours notice should you need to cancel/re-schedule a session. If you are a recipient and cancel a session without 24 hours notice, or if you fail to arrive for a scheduled session, your session may be deemed to have taken place at the giver's discretion. If you are a giver and cancel a session without 24 hours, or if you fail to arrive for a scheduled session, your recipient may report this to your round coordinator and choose to end the reciprocal relationship immediately;
give permission for your reciprocal partners to automatically include your details in their coaching hours log for certification purposes and to record sessions for mentoring/certification purposes, unless you specify otherwise;
agree to contact your round coordinator or the Global ReciproCoach Coordinator immediately, should you feel at any point that any of the above terms and conditions have been compromised by any ReciproCoach participants;
understand that if you breach any of the above terms and conditions, your ReciproCoach membership may be cancelled without refund of membership fees or unused coins and membership may not be reinstated.
forego the giving and receiving of hours without refund, should you withdraw from a round after the round closes and matching has taken place; and,
engage in mentoring or supervision if you experience repeated difficulty in coaching rounds or if more than one ReciproCoach reports difficulty working with you.
By participating in
group supervision rounds
, you are agreeing to:
treat the content of all supervision meetings as confidential, just as you would the content of a coaching session;
fill in a supervision prep form prior to each meeting, as these form the basis of each meeting’s agenda;
attend all meetings in the round and give advance notice to the coordinator should you be unable to attend a meeting, with the understanding that if you do not attend all three meetings, you will not be eligible to receive ICF CCEUs for your participation;
arrive at all meetings at least two minutes prior to the meeting start-time;
share honestly and openly with the group about your coaching experiences;
understand that knowledge is shared and generated in supervision meetings through differences in experience between coaches from a range of different experience levels (as opposed to the expert-novice model, in which those which more experience help those with less experience);
understand that it is collaborative supervision in that the group members, not the coordinator, provide the supervisory input and that the coordinator is there to facilitate each call and share equally as a group member;
remain aware of the group dynamics and the equal, reciprocal sharing between all members of the group;
understand that you may withdraw from the round prior to the round closing date and automatically receive a refund on the credit/coins which you used to enter the round (if they have not expired), however that if you withdraw after the round closing date, you will not receive a refund;
provide feedback on your supervision experience at the end of the round and understand that only participants who leave feedback within a month of the round end date will receive an ICF CCE certificate;
use your participation in this group either for ICF CCEUs OR towards mentoring hours for ICF credential, but NOT both;
remain aware that ReciproCoach supervision groups have been pre-approved to qualify for ICF CCEs, but that because of the changing nature of the content of our supervision groups, all CCEs must be confirmed by the the ICF after your supervision group has taken place. For this reason, you will be awarded 3 ICF CCEUs at the timing and discretion of the ICF, the latter of which depends on the content which emerges within your discussions, and requires you go have attended all sessions in your round; and,
allow supervision meetings to be automatically recorded for the purposes of training and evaluating new supervision coordinators and that these recordings will not be used for any other purpose, without your expressed permission.
You will not SPAM fellow ReciproCoaches, send junk mail or add them to email lists without consent.
You will not use the ReciproCoach community to post or transmit offensive materials including offensive language or sexually explicit materials (including photographs).
You will not knowingly post false information in your profile, or pose as another person.
You will use the services of ReciproCoach for professional communication in relation to coaching only and will not engage in or promote any commercial enterprise through your ReciproCoach profile.
You will not harass others by continuing to attempt to communicate with someone who has clearly asked you to cease communications.
