How We'll Work Together
I'm so excited we get to work together! To provide the best coaching experience, please read this entirely, press "Sign the Agreement" button to commit to framework we'll be working within, and be sure to book your first appointment for your Discovery Session on the next page.
The services to be provided are coaching, as defined by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and designed jointly with (you!) the client. The following is the ICF definition of coaching:
“Professional Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client's progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. ICF member coaches and ICF credentialed coaches recognize that results are a matter of the client's intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach's efforts and application of the coaching process.”
COMMITMENT AND PAYMENT
We will work together for a minimum period 6 months (we will do a check in at month 3). During that time we will continuously refine our coaching alliance to meet your needs. If for whatever reason, you feel that the coaching is not working as you want it to, you are responsible for communicating and taking action to restore the power of the coaching relationship. We will work together 2 times per month on the phone 1 hour with our first session being 1.5 hours to do an in-depth Discovery Session. We will choose a regularly scheduled time that will work for both of us during the Discovery Session and then vary it as necessary since life happens. The fees for the coaching are $1800 total for 12 sessions which will be paid monthly.
Make your first $300 payment on PayPal today get started, and the next 5 payments I will email you an invoice via PayPal one week before the due date (1st of the month) to pay each month.
Late Fees:There is a $25 late fee after the 5th of the month, and a $50 late fee after the 15th of the month, so be sure to flag these invoice emails and mark your calendars to pay on time!
I am fine with you rescheduling appointments if you need to, but please do so at least 24 hrs in advance. If you do not show up to a scheduled appointment, that call will not be made up. If you are more than 10 minutes late to a call without notifying me via email, text message or phone call, I assume you cannot make it. This is in place to respect each other's time and reinforce the commitment we have to one another within the coaching partnership. I will send you a calendar invite for our sessions, please accept them. We can adjust the sessions as necessary but it's imperative we try to keep our regularly scheduled time because of other clients.
EXPECTATIONS FOR COACHING
I will hold everything we discuss in our coaching sessions as confidential. Coaching requires work and attention on your part. You will get the most out of coaching if you know what you want to cover during each coaching session. Please prepare and email me your coaching call prep form the night before each session so we can utilize our time together in each session. You can find a template of the prep form here. Sending me this prep form is very important to allow you to reflect on your learning thus far and get you back into the coaching the night before so you're warmed up and ready to dive back in.
Working together: I will bring the skills of coaching and openness, and you will commit to bring your full self to each session. With that, you agree to commit 100% to exploring, changing, learning, taking risks, perseverance when it becomes difficult, and commitment to investing the time and energy to coaching. You must be willing to go beyond your comfort zone and step into the unknown for the sake of change. If this is something you stop committing to, I will ask you to either redeclare your commitment or end our coaching sessions.
Accountability: My role as coach is to hold accountability as a container you so you can stay accountable to what you're wanting to be and do in your life. What this ultimately means that you are the ultimately the sole person responsible for your learning and I am not your manger or parent.
The coaching framework: I ask a lot of questions. My desire is to have you learn about yourself, grow as a human being, and get what you want in your work and your life. My intention and work as a coach is to help you to find your answers, discoveries, and realizations. I will challenge you. I trust that you will tell me if I go too far. We will be designing our relationship during our first call and on an on-going basis. I want you to continuously tell me what you want from me as your coach, and when you want something to change in the coaching relationship.
Structure of the sessions: We will work within the following framework each session to keep you on track and making progress using the below structure.
1. Review of coaching prep form together (~15 mins)
2. Coaching (~40 mins)
3. Accountability for the session: being and doing to focus on in between our coaching sessions (~5 mins)
I require one month’s notice if you want to end our coaching relationship at any given point. This will give us time to wrap up and have a conscious closure to our work together.
Whew. Ok, with that, let's get started!
