Coaching Contract Sample gives you a great starting point for putting together your own terms and conditions to use with your Clients and legally protect yourself and your business.

Imagine.

You’ve just signed a new Coaching Client and you are filled with excitement and anticipation. You are playing out scenarios in your head about how the sessions would flow, how you’ll listen intently, reserve your judgement, ask them provocative and insightful questions and, step-by-step, help them move closer to their goals.

You are picturing conversations filled with ‘a-ha’ moments, little success stories and maybe even tears of joy, culminating in their total transformation and a happy Client who can’t wait to tell the world what a phenomenal coach you are!

The last thing you want to think about is how things could go wrong. Very wrong.

Unfortunately, it does happen. Here are some typical scenarios:

  • The Client keeps rescheduling their sessions, and instead of meeting once a week, your sessions are often more than a month apart.
  • After falling off the face of the Earth for several months, the Client shows up and expects to pick up where you left off.
  • The Client fails to take agreed actions and at the end of the Coaching engagement is not happy with her results. She believes the Coaching has been ineffective and demands a refund.
  • The Client carries out an action you discussed, and something goes wrong as a result. He now blames you and threatens to sue you for damages.

Sure, we don’t want to think about these things, but as entrepreneurs and business owners we can’t bury our heads in the sand and pretend it could never happen to us.

Bad Clients happen. Misunderstandings happen.

To protect yourself and set the right expectations from the start, it’s important to put together a well thought-out coaching contract.

And if you’ve never done this before, you could be feeling confused and overwhelmed.

Where do you even begin?

Rather than staring at a blank sheet of paper wondering where to even begin, you could download our Coaching Contract Sample and tweak it to meet your needs.

We also suggest that you set aside 10-15 min during your first Coaching Session to go through some of the most important terms to make sure the Client understands how coaching works, what is expected of them and what they can expect from you, the Coach.
