Coaches should agree a contract with their clients at the start of a coaching programme.
This is the contract that is drawn up between you, the coach, and your client. A client needs to sign to verify agreement with what you agree to provide to them according to your service as well as what they agree to do as a client. Also, the basic payment for services information is also included. The client keeps a copy of the form for their files and mails a signed copy back to you.
The elements of a complete Coaching Agreement will include but are not limited to:
Your pledge as a coach
Payment agreement (including cancellation policy details)
Schedule of sessions/Missed appointment policy
How coaching sessions will be conducted
