Description of Coaching: Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional, or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.
1) Coach-Client Relationship
- Coach agrees to maintain a set of ethics and standards of behavior as outlined in the ICF code of ethics.
- Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing his/her own physical, mental and emotional well-being during the coaching relationship.
The parties agree to engage in their purchased course and/or coaching package through the digital course, in-person, Zoom, or telephone meetings.
This coaching relationship, as well as all information (documented or verbal) that the Client shares with the Coach as part of this relationship, is bound by the principles of confidentiality set forth in the ICF Code of Ethics. However, please be aware that the Coach-Client relationship is not considered a legally confidential relationship (like the medical and legal professions) and thus communications are not subject to the protection of any legally recognized privilege. The Coach agrees not to disclose any information pertaining to the Client without the Client’s written consent. The Coach will not disclose the Client’s name as a reference without the Client’s consent. Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) was in the Coach’s possession prior to its being furnished by the Client; (b) is generally known to the public or in the Client’s industry; (c) is obtained by the Coach from a third party, without breach of any obligation to the Client; (d) is independently developed by the Coach without the use of or reference to the Client’s confidential information; or (e) the Coach is required by statute, lawfully issued subpoena, or by court order to disclose; (f) is disclosed to the Coach and as a result of such disclosure the Coach reasonably believes there to be an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to the Client or others; and (g) involves illegal activity. The Client also acknowledges his or her continuing obligation to raise any confidentiality questions or concerns with the Coach in a timely manner.
4) Fee Change
If the digital course and/or coaching rates change before purchase is made, the prevailing rates will apply.
5) Refund for the Digital Course
If you can show us that you went through the steps, you put in the work, and you don’t feel like you saw any improvement then we will offer a full refund within 14 days of purchase. Please email [email protected]
The time of the coaching meetings and/or location will be determined by the Coach and Client via email and calendar links. The Client will initiate all calls that need to be scheduled and the Coach will provide Zoom and phone dial-in instructions for the call.
7) Cancellation Policy
The client agrees that it is the Client’s responsibility to notify the Coach no later than 24 hours in advance of the scheduled calls/meetings. Coach reserves the right to bill the Client for missed meetings. The coach will attempt in good faith to reschedule the missed meeting.
8) Termination for Coaching
The client agrees to compensate the Coach for all coaching services rendered through and including the effective date of termination of the coaching relationship.
9) Limited Liability
Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, the Coach makes no guarantees, representations, or warranties of any kind or nature, express or implied with respect to the coaching services negotiated, agreed upon, and rendered. In no event shall the Coach be liable to the Client for any indirect, consequential, or special damages. Notwithstanding any damages that the Client may incur, the Coach’s entire liability under this Agreement, and the Client’s exclusive remedy, shall be limited to the amount actually paid by the Client to the Coach under this Agreement for all coaching services rendered through and including the termination date.
10) Entire Agreement
This document reflects the entire agreement between the Coach and the Client and reflects a complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter. This Agreement supersedes all prior written and oral representations. The Agreement may not be amended, altered, or supplemented except in writing signed by both the Coach and the Client.
11) Dispute Resolution
If a dispute arises out of this Agreement that cannot be resolved by mutual consent, the Client and Coach agree to attempt to mediate in good faith for up to 30 days after notice given. If the dispute is not so resolved, and in the event of legal action, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover attorney’s fees and court costs from the other party.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If the Court finds that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.
The failure of either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of that party’s right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of this Agreement.
14) Applicable Law
This Agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Pennsylvania, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws provisions.
