– The Coach is honored to be engaging in this Coaching relationship with you, and looks forward to providing you with a safe place to process your decisions over the coming months.

A three-month commitment ensures that you understand the collaborative effort it will take to make important changes affecting your thinking, emotions, and behaviors.

– Our Coach comes to the sessions free from distractions and respectfully requests you do the same.
– You and the coach agree to show up at the mutually scheduled time for the Coaching session. If you have to reschedule you will do so with a minimum of 24 hours notice.
– The Coach will want your input and questions along the way. The relationship with your Coach is a collaborative one, built on respect and safety. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it. Ask your Coach questions, speak honestly, and bring resources to the table that you have found. Please tell the Coach when you disagree, and share with the Coach your insights. You are your own best expert and developing your voice and instincts are one of the most important aspects of our Coaching relationship.
