 “Legally Protecting Your Coaching Business through Effective Contracts

Have you ever wondered if you have legally appropriate contracts for your coaching business?

Join Gene Policastri, attorney, in this 90-minute webinar, as we discuss the critical language that should be included in every coaching – client contract or services agreement.  As you know, as a coach adhering to ICF principals, you must use a clear coaching agreement that includes the roles and the rights of all parties. (Section 3, par. 19 Code of Ethics).

We will cover these core competencies:

  • Establishing the coaching agreement
  • Setting appropriate guidelines and parameters of the relationship including payment of fees and managing risk
  • Drafting an effective scope of services that clearly communicates to the client that coaching is not therapy, consulting or other professional services

The webinar is held in a conversational style and will cover the above topic areas including contract basics, sample contract clauses that should be in your contracts, and a review of contract language that was recently criticized by a court.

At the conclusion of the webinar, Gene will stay on the call for a question and answer session about the topics covered, or any topic you would like to address. So, come prepared with your questions.

After you register for the webinar, you will receive an email with details on how to attend.
