Coaching Agreement

Coaching Guidelines:

Welcome!

I have positive expectations for a coaching relationship that helps you to create the life YOU want to live. To partner together professionally, I want you to be familiar with the following guidelines.

Terms of Coaching:

I invite you to think of Coaching as a process.  Many people create change for themselves in a short time.  However, to refine and sustain the change takes several months. Although many coaching time line options are available, I would ask that you consider our Coaching relationship for the minimum of 3 months. 

Fees:

My Coaching fee is payable to Kisha Simmons of Keepin’ Chic, LLC. Paypal and SquareUP is set up for easy and safe payment processing. There is no commitment beyond paid chosen sessions, but please give me a few weeks’ notice if you think you would like to continue coaching on a month to month basis. 

Procedure:

I will call you at the specified time, unless we make other arrangements.  If you wish to connect with me in between sessions with a challenge, a success or an inquiry, I will make every attempt to respond to your e-mail within 24 hours, with an email or short phone call at your discretion.  I’m happy to provide this extra level of service at no additional charge.

Changes:

If you need to reschedule our appointment, please give me 48 hours notice.  If you have an emergency or illness, you can reschedule with less than 24 hours notice.  If you do not show up for a scheduled call, for any reason, and provide no notice (latest notice can be five minutes past scheduled session start time), we will not make up that time.  If I need to reschedule, I will give you at least 48 hours notice as well, barring an emergency or illness. 

Between Calls:

Email me any time at bookcoachk@gmail.com, or text  me at 214-564-6640 to reach me with ideas, problems, questions, etc, or to have a quick laser call.

Problems:

If I ever say or do anything that upsets you or doesn’t feel right, please bring it to my attention so that we can resolve it immediately.  My objective is to have a coaching relationship that is fully open, honest, and trusting in our communication styles.  We should both realize that communication via telephone or email entails extra challenges since we can not see body language, facial expressions, etc.  Therefore we give each other plenty of latitude, and promptly ask for clarification if there is a mis-connection.

Coaching Agreement

Coach

I agree to serve as your Coach – to partner with you to identify and achieve your personal and/or professional goals.

As your Coach, I cannot guarantee results.  You will create powerful results by having the courage and determination to forward the action in your life.

During the time we spend together in our coaching sessions, I will devote my time, thoughts, and energy to you, exclusively.  In between our sessions, I may not be instantly available, as I may be attending to others, or myself.  I will however, always attempt to be available within 24 hours.

I am a Coach, not a psychotherapist or physician, and I am not trained in diagnosing psychological or medical conditions.  If any issues come up for you that should be handled by a licensed therapist or physician, I insist that you must attend to your health by contacting the appropriate professional.

As your Coach, I will bring attentive listening, understanding, belief in you and commitment to your success.  You can expect me to challenge you, offer fresh perspectives, make requests (including assigning homework), acknowledge your wins, and guarantee utmost confidentiality (to the fullest extent of the law, and so long as I don’t fear for your or another’s safety) in the powerful, sacred relationship.

Client

I am motivated and committed to taking action on my determined personal and professional goals.  I realize that anything less than my intentional full participation will not lead to my success.

I accept full responsibility for myself and any actions I take that might result from Coaching.

I am under the care of a physician and healthy enough to engage in coaching.

I can financially afford the Coaching fee at this time.  I agree to pay (or be autocharged) promptly according to the agreement made during consultation.  I agree that ultimately, it is my responsibility that my coach gets paid for the services I use.

I agree to honor my scheduled session times.

I have read and agree with the Coaching Guidelines and the Coaching Agreement.
