MEETINGS

This contract, between Client and Coach, will take place via Zoom as follows:

The Client and Coach will meet for:

  • one initial meeting at no charge to connect, discuss coaching, and establish a plan (click here to book your free initial meeting)
  • A series of 60-minute sessions booked on retainer or individually will focus on identifying end goals, actionable intermediate goals, and assessing progress (click here to book your sessions).

COACHING RELATIONSHIP

Coaching is a partnership focused on the Client’s transformation, discoveries, new perspectives and personal and/or professional growth. The success of the coaching engagement depends upon the Client’s commitment and openness to the process. In coaching conversations, the Coach will be direct and honest and encourage the Client to do the same. 

If the Client believes that coaching is not proceeding as desired, the Client agrees to communicate this to the Coach. The Coach may also communicate her opinion that coaching services are not appropriate for the Client at a given time, and may refer the Client to another personal growth specialist. Coaching is not therapy or counseling, and does not treat illness or pathology. The Client understands that the Coach is not a licensed psychologist, psychiatrist, social worker or other medical or mental health professional.

CONFIDENTIALITY

The Coach will maintain confidentiality to the extent permitted by law, unless: 

(1) the Client divulges information about illegal activities, or if the information is relevant to any legal action concerning this engagement. The Client understands that the coach-client relationship is not privileged under law and information regarding the client could be subpoenaed. 

(2) the Coach seeks guidance from another coach in order to better serve the Client. At the Coach’s discretion, the Coach may consult a fellow coach for advice and suggestions regarding addressing the Client’s needs. In such cases, the Coach will maintain the Client’s anonymity and seek to reveal as little information about the Client’s situation as reasonably possible to receive the desired guidance.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

The Client is responsible for his/her own decisions, actions, and results. The Client agrees to hold the Coach free from all liability for any action, advice, consultation and results, or adverse situations resulting directly or indirectly from coaching-related communications between the parties, including but not limited to any losses caused by any negligence on the part of the Coach. The Client agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Coach from and against any and all liability or expense, including defense costs and legal fees incurred in connection with claims for damages of any nature whatsoever including but not limited to bodily injury, death, personal injury, financial or business losses, worker’s compensation, past or future lost earnings, damage to reputation, or property damage arising from the Coach’s performance or failure to perform obligations hereunder. The Coach shall not be liable for any damages, loss, cost or expenses, including incidental or consequential damages, of Client. The Client’s sole remedy against the Coach shall be the replacement cost of coaching services.

FORCE MAJEURE

The Coach will not be in breach of obligations under this agreement (other than to pay monies due) in the event that, for cause or causes beyond its control, the Coach is unable to perform, in whole or in part, any one or more of its obligations under this Agreement. Such causes shall include, but not be limited to fire or other casualty, inability to obtain materials or services, technical failure or difficulties, problems or interruptions with the Internet, computer viruses, storms, hurricanes, other acts of God, insurrection, or any other cause not within the reasonable control of either party.

CONTRACT TERMINATION

MARKETING-RELATED REQUESTS

The Client understands that if he/she is satisfied with the process and outcomes of the coaching engagement, the Coach may request that the Client provide a reference, permit Coach to add the Client to her list of client employers for marketing purposes (first name only, no photo), and provide written feedback about the coaching engagement, portions of which may be used for marketing purposes.

MISCELLANEOUS

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with regard to the subject matter hereof, and replaces and supersedes all other agreements or understandings, whether written or oral. No amendment or extension of this contract shall be binding unless in writing and signed by both parties. Any disagreement in connection herewith shall be finally settled by arbitration. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision.
