Coaching Agreement

Purpose of Coaching
The overall goal of my coaching is to help you clarify your message, define your style of communication and plan a strategy for expressing this effectively. While I can provide guidance and encouragement I can’t write, edit, or craft the content of what you will share.

Coaching Process
All coaching will occur in group settings virtually (unless there’s been an agreement to meet privately or in person). These 1.5 to 2 hour sessions will include instruction, interaction, and dialogue between participants.

Responsibilities of the coach
I will use my communication skills and coaching tools to support you as an equal partner throughout the coaching process. I’ll do my best to guide the coaching sessions based on the information provided through your comments, whether through questionnaires, phone conversation, or written correspondence.

Responsibilities of the client
You agree to show up for sessions ready and willing to be coached. You take full responsibility for your own physical, emotional, and mental health. You acknowledges that you are ultimately responsible for all decisions made during the coaching relationship. You are solely responsible for creating and implementing your own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship. As such, the you agree that the coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the coach.

Completing Assignments
All participants are expected to do their best to complete the assignments before and after coaching sessions so they can fully engage in conversation and give and receive feedback.

Each participant is asked to be kind, charitable and supportive of fellow participants (even if their message isn’t something you fully agree with). Please refrain from critiquing or arguing with fellow participants over matters of religion, politics or other contentious topics.

Support & Interaction
Due to limits of time I’m not able to provide extra support in between group coaching sessions via email, text, or social media. I encourage you to make use of group interaction on Slack and I’ll be interacting with you there, too.

Cancellation policy
You may discontinue the relationship at any time in writing. Although no money will be refunded, the agreement will be dissolved immediately.

Reschedule and Missed Sessions
Group coaching missed sessions cannot be rescheduled or made up and recordings will not be made available of the coaching sessions.

I wish I could promise specific outcomes but I can’t. I’ve seen this process help people get clarity and confidence. But you are individually responsible for the outcomes by implementing the advice doing the hard work of expressing your message.

What coaching is not
Coaching is not a substitute for therapy or counselling. By signing this contract you affirm your understanding that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, medical, financial, business, spiritual or other qualified professionals. You will seek independent professional guidance for legal, medical, financial, business, spiritual or other matters. You understand that all decisions in these areas are exclusively yours and acknowledge that your decisions and your actions regarding them are your sole responsibility.

Since there are many factors solely within the Client’s control that can affect the outcome of this or any coaching program, Coach/Company makes no guarantee or promise that Client will achieve any results in the Program described herein. Client further understands and agrees that s/he is fully responsible for his or her well being during all coaching calls and throughout the Program, including all choices and decisions made by Client. Client understands that Coach’s comments and ideas are to be construed as suggestions and information only, and that Client has full responsibility of making an informed decision and giving his/her informed consent.
