General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been headlining the news. It was announced that it is being adopted by the UK ahead of Europe.
Since 16th February 2017, I have been posting some interesting and important details about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is expected to come into force around the middle of 2018 because I wanted my coaches to be prepared well in advance.
In my blogs on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) I have looked at what was being proposed from a coach point of view. In the initial entry I explained the importance of coaches in knowing about the rules which will be coming in with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and although all of my coaches will have a full understanding of the need to register and abide by the current rules I am sadly aware that many life coaching and business coaching courses are lacking in detail and especially within the business set up area. This a a critical area for coaches and it is my belief that they should be fully aware of their legal responsibilities before they leave the workshop part of the course.
My General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) post on the 22nd February covers the information you, as a coach, hold on your clients and suppliers.
Following up on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the posting on the 3rd March deals with privacy notices which will need to be changed in time for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) implementation.
On 4th April I covered the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) again with an article on Rights of the Individual. Procedures coaches need to ensure all the rights of individuals include how you delete personal data or provide data electronically in a commonly used format.
The main rights for individuals under the GDPR will be:
• subject access,
• inaccuracies corrected,
• information erased,
• direct marketing,
• prevent automated decision-making and profiling, and
• data portability (updated one)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has references to both ‘consent’ and ‘explicit consent’. Do you know the difference? I looked at this aspect in my post on the 8th June 2017.
I am concerned about the lack of information for the micro business which most coaches fall into. Please be aware of your responsibilities, as I know the coaches who have been on my workshops will be fully aware of.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Impact on Life and Business Coaches

Over the next few weeks I will be posting some interesting and important details about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is expected to come into force around the middle of 2018 and I want coaches to be prepared well in advance. I don’t think there are many of the changes which will affect the micro coach business although there may be some which affect business coaches. There could be coaching opportunities for the business coach in the form of coaching companies and organisations in readiness for the GDPR.

I will be looking at some of the changes and how you can prepare yourself, your business and if you are a business coach, how to seize the opportunity. So for today I am simply looking at awareness. I am assuming that if you are a life coach or business coach you have already registered with the ICO (Information commissioner’s office). I know all the life and business coaches who trained with me on the Achievement Specialist’s Life coaching diploma will be aware of the requirements and will have registered within the first couple of weeks of attending the workshop part of the coaching diploma course as I discuss the importance of registering, the how to register and the cost. Fledgling life coaches are then encouraged to put a date in their calendars to do this. However, if you are reading this and did not train with me then there is a good chance you do not know about your responsibilities or you have forgotten about it, or your training provider did not encourage you to take action (a life coach creed – taking action).

Today’s Action: Make sure you have registered and if not, here is the link www.ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-reform/
