How Coaching Agreements Destroyed A Coach

coaching agreementsJeff provides a combination of life and business coaching services to his clients. Although he used to love the work, Jeff found his coaching agreements stole all his free time.

Because it seems he’s on call 24/7 to help others, Jeff’s burned out.

Instead of looking forward to being of service, he dreads client contact.

Now Jeff dreams of being shipwrecked on Gilligan’s Island. No cell phone, email, or other means for clients to contact him.

Yet he’s stuck in bad coaching contracts. He can’t quit.

What went wrong?

Jeff didn’t have a business contracts lawyer prepare his coaching agreements.

Of course, this meant the scope of coaching services wasn’t defined. And the agreements included services Jeff didn’t want to do.

Nor was there an easy way to end the agreements when Jeff became overwhelmed.

If you coach others, use an agreement that reflects what you want to do. Carve out those things you won’t be doing.

Don’t wing it. An experienced business attorney will create a coaching agreement template that’s right for you.
