Ethical Code janjacobstam


I will strive to be an appropriate role model for students and clients in all my trainings and professional activities.

I will act in accordance with the systemic principles of belonging, order and exchange.

I will give my training, coaching and constellations with great care and create a positive learning environment in which students and clients are respected.

I understand that I am considered an expert. I will not use this position to gain unreasonable and unfair advantage, in the form of material, financial, or other favors, from my students and clients.

In case the professional relationship between me and a person is the trainer-student / coach-client / author-client relationship, I agree to conduct myself in promoting this relationship. In case of another relationship than this, I will do my best to balance both relationships.

In case a question from a client (for whatever reason) is not manageable for me, I will take responsibility for this and refer the client to another trainer, coach or other professional.

I will do my best to do business in a truthful, honest way, always trying to create a situation where for both parties give and take is in balance.

I will present myself in an honest, open manner and make no claims about myself that are not true.

I will not pirate other people’s work and always quote the source when quoting from other people’s work. I will not allow any copyrighted work, including audio, video, or written material, to be copied without written permission from the owner.

I will ensure that I have transparent financial information on prices and discounts and will handle all financial issues as ethically as possible.

I will ensure the confidentiality of the personal information of my students or clients, unless I am legally obliged to disclose this information or have been given written permission to do so.

I will honestly give my opinion, and in case of less positive statements, make it clear that these are my personal opinions and also highlight the other side of the matter. I will not speak ill of other trainers, coaches, systemic colleagues or students or clients.

I will provide the student / client with clear information about the certificates of training I have obtained.

I undertake to continue to develop myself professionally in my profession. I use the possibilities in the field of peer review, supervision, workshops, seminars and training.

I will not issue certificates to students who deal in an unethical way with the material I have provided. I will always act according to my ability to certify these students in the future.

When in doubt about a situation or possible contradiction of the rule, I always act in the interest of my client.
