Hey there! Are YOU a new coach? An aspiring coach? An I-want-to-be-a-coach-by Christmas-Coach?
If this is you, then I want you to look at this screen shot from a group I’m in.
This ‘coach’ (who isn’t formally trained – his own admission) has had to …
*** REFUND 40 HOURS of COACHING ***
YES! That’s 40 hours! Of coaching he already delivered to his client.
Because the coaching relationship failed. I know that I go on about this but, come on guys, it’s the basics. 98% of coaching relationships fail because they did not set up a contract at the start.
This guy doesn’t have a leg to stand on and now has to go up against the mighty Stripe to fight his corner.
Coaching contracts are the basics. They should cover (but aren’t limited to):
• Expectations of both parties
• What coaching is, and is not.
• Client and coaching boundaries
• Office hours
• Session details
• Payment terms
• Refund policies
Imagine if YOU had to pay back 40 hours of coaching! That’s more than a full week’s work! Could you afford to do that? And what about the potential professional damage?
Be a brilliant coach.
