Abstract: This paper offers an exploration of the ethical implications surrounding power, gender, leadership, and change in leadership and coaching. This exploration delves into the dynamics of oppressive power structures with a specific focus on gender dynamics and their profound impact on our personal and professional lives. Through the lens of Shoukry’s Emancipatory Coaching framework (2016), we offer a strategy that can enable coaches to inspire transformative change within themselves and for their clients in the spirit of creating inclusive, safe, and equitable environments. The goal is to incite dialogue and reflection around what it means to shape a renewed commitment and approach to coaching in the context of today’s social challenges in a way that also drives positive social change.
