1:1 Coaching Agreement
Contract for coaching clients 1:1. For coaches who don't have a website, or don't need webpage policies
Unfortunately, we hear all the time about coaches running their coaching business without proper contracts in place, believing a coaching agreement is an unnecessary expense when can use another coach’s agreement or a free template they found on the internet.
This is so dangerous. 😬 Free coaching contracts don’t adequately protect you. We’ve audited a ton, and they have huge gaping holes that leave you vulnerable not only to clients bailing without notice (and without recourse for you to recoup the outstanding payments), but also to lawsuits.
Here’s what I mean. Running your coaching business without a solid 1:1 contract means a client could ghost you and refuse to pay, and you’re left trying to chase them, with limited remedies available. Second, you’re operating without proper disclaimers in place, so you haven’t limited your liability should a client misuse information you present and suffer damages, or have unrealistic expectations of what they can achieve through your program or services.
On the less scary side, without a document stating your boundaries and your expectations of clients, client overreach is likely, as are misunderstandings about what clients could expect from your coaching services.
Our coaching agreement is comprehensive and detailed and will cover, amongst other things:
Time to complete contract: less than 45 minutes (includes the time it takes to watch the video tutorial if you decide to)
