What is a Coaching Contract?

Coaching Contracts are legal documents that define the terms of a business agreement between a coach and their client. These agreements detail specific coaching services, payment structures, confidentiality expectations, liability provisions, and other important details.

A well-crafted Coaching Contract is essential for protecting coaches against potential misunderstandings or issues arising during the coaching process. It's also important to ensure that both parties understand the expectations and boundaries.

A doesn't have to be complicated—it just needs to be comprehensive enough to cover all the potential pitfalls of working together. With a good understanding of what goes into a thriving coaching contract, practitioners can ensure smooth sailing for their clients and themselves.
