(j) Rescheduling. If the client finds it necessary to reschedule an appointment, at least a 48-hour notice is required or client will be charged. If an emergency arises, notify the coach as soon as possible and the appointment will be rescheduled (see following Appointment Cancellation Policy)
(k) Cancellation Policy. In the event that a previously scheduled appointment needs to be rescheduled, the following policy will be applied: If the client needs to cancel an appointment, please allow the a 48-hour notice policy. It is understood that there are times when an emergency will present itself (e.g. a summons to jury duty, a medical emergency). Forgetting does not constitute an emergency, nor does an unplanned visitor. The coach will do his best to reschedule the session. If the Coach has a conflict and needs to change a scheduled appointment, she will always reschedule and make sure you receive the appointments you have paid for. If the client has to change an appointment with 48 hours’ notice, the Coach will make sure it is rescheduled. If the client has to change an appointment with less than 48 hours’ notice, the Coach will do what he can to reschedule within that month, this is considered billable. If the (client) misses an appointment without any notice, it is not rescheduled and it is considered a billable coaching session.
(l) Nature of Coaching Relationship. Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The client enters into professional coaching with the understanding that she is responsible for creating her own decisions and results. Client also agrees not to hold the coach liable for any actions or results for adverse situations created as a direct result of a specific referral given by the coach. The client engages the coach for the purpose of supporting with respect to life skills, communications skills, business and professional objectives, networking skills, interpersonal relationships and/or for providing a structure for identifying and moving towards the goals created by the client. The Coach may, at times, coach around personal issues as they affect business performance. The professional coaching relationship is in no way to be construed as psychological counseling or any type of psychotherapy. It is further understood that the coach is not an employment agent, business manager, financial analyst or psychotherapist and he has not promised, nor is he obligated, to provide services which include: procuring or attempting to procure any employment, business or sales for the client; performing any business management functions such as accounting services or advising on tax matters or investing funds; acting as a therapist, counseling on or providing psychoanalysis, group or behavioral therapy.
(m) Call Procedure. The time of the coaching sessions and/or location will be determined as appointments are scheduled each month. When meeting via phone, the client agrees that they will initiate all scheduled calls and call the coach at (303) 777-1117 at the appointed time. If the coach will be at any other number, she will notify the client prior to the scheduled appointment time.
(n) Conflict of Interest. A situation in which a coach has a private or personal interest sufficient to appear to influence the objective of his or her official duties as a coach and a professional. In the event of a conflict coach will inform client and terminate contract.
(o) Extra Time. Clients are welcome and encouraged to call the Coach between scheduled sessions to seek advice, discuss a problem or to share a success. The client may email Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
(p) Communication. The coach will be making requests of the client as part of the coaching relationship. The client may say yes, decline, or counter-offer. If the coach does or says anything that upsets you or doesn’t feel right, please bring it to her attention. We promise to make the coaching experience personal for you and to do what is necessary to ensure that you (client) are satisfied.
