Coach’s Role

As your coach, I agree to do the following during our coaching relationship:

  • Create a safe and trusting environment that supports a collaborative coaching process

  • Hold your agenda as the primary focus of our coaching relationship and sessions

  • Be honest, direct, and fierce in service to your growth

  • Take risks in asking the hard and even challenging questions sometimes that support your agenda and  ensure the coaching remains productive and focused

  • Note: If at any time the Coach feels that the client is at risk of harming themselves or others the coach has permission to take appropriate action

Client’s Role​​

As the client, I agree to do the following during our coaching relationship:​


  • Initiate coaching sessions, keep scheduled appointments and be on time

  • Shape the agenda.  You get to decide what the subjects are and how deep you want to go.

  • Make arrangements to avoid distraction and be focused during my coaching session

  • Bring my specific topic which I want to be coached on

  • Be honest

  • Be open-minded and willing to receive and consider challenging questions, look at different perspectives, stretch into new skills, and take on new approaches

  • Either accept, reject, or negotiate for something else when my coach makes requests of me in service of my goals and agenda

  • Empower the coaching relationship to be successful; and when the coaching relationship is not working as I desire, communicate and pro-actively take necessary steps to redesign our coaching relationship to meet my changing needs​
