That is why, as coaches, we need to rethink, validate and possibly extend certain elements of the coaching agreement, in collaboration and in full collaboration with our coaches. Define it formally (usually with documents) at the beginning of the coaching cycle. Then, at each meeting, define a coaching agreement specific to that session. The rescheduling of a coaching session is possible without problem with the corresponding announcement. Please expect at least 24 hours in case of a change of date. Between coaching sessions, the client may feel free to send an SMS or email to the coach. The coaching contract can be modified at any time by negotiation. In case of use of means other than face to face, the client agrees to call the coach on the agreed date with the agreed number. The coach and client commit to starting and ending each session on time.
The program fee is not reimbursed, but taken for the client in order to restore his coaching program in a reasonable time and pleasant for both parties. Whether you are a personal, professional, executive or other specific coach, you need to think about all the potential issues that may affect your category and address them in your written and oral agreements with your clients.

He took what the client wanted to work on, but did not set a measure of the subject`s success. The coach has been too directive and needs to work more with the client when there are opportunities to go in different directions. My own thoughts are based on my experience as a coach, project manager and businessman. What I`ve learned is that if you predict expectations, there`s much less chance of misunderstandings going through the coaching process. In addition to a written coaching contract, some coaches use an Intake Sheet or have a checklist of the most important things to cover with the coach. This helps to ensure that all aspects are addressed and understood in more detail before the start of formal coaching, including what is presented in the coaching contract.
