A good rule of thumb is to have an agreement or a contract for your Coaching terms (length), expectations, and scope of work.
There are a few best practices for doing this effectively. Most formal Coaching packages, courses and trainings use the contract from the “Sales Page, Order Page and Terms of Service” however, you could summarize those things you’re getting for your investment.
While you could do that to make sure that you’re getting what you need and that you two are clear on what you’ll be accomplishing and how, many losely go about their Coaching without doing this. It can lead to negative consequences and diminish your returns.
Here are a few tips for setting up your agreements and Coaching service contracts:
1.) Have them send you an email with exactly what they are going to do for you, support you with and give you access to with your coaching package.
2.) Specify, time of contract, topic of coaching, price and expectations! Also be clear on what’s required of you, for example, being on time, doing homework, replying to emails, being honest, etc… Make sure both of you sign or acknowledge the final “working” agreement (meaning it can be mutually added to or modified as you progress).
3.) Always include a quick mention of what your benchmarks will be and even a worst case scenario that spells out, what it would look like if you two needed to discontinue your relationship.
Hope these help, feel free to check out this video so you can move forward more confidently:
Coaching contracts can go from one week, to a few months and even a year or more. It all depends on what you need and how long it will take you to accomplish it.
Here are some tips that most people use. As some Coaches have set packages and programs, others will leave it up to you. It’s recommended that you choose shorter intervals so you can use them as milestones. Once you successfully complete one thing, then you can move on the the next short term contract. (If the Coach will let you.)
As far as evaluating your needs, it’s good to break it down so you can be exact on THE REAL ISSUE to work on!
1.) “What exactly am I being Coached on?”
2.) “When ___(This specific event or feeling happens)___ I will consider this a success”
3.) Are there components to your action plan or stages to your success? If so, write those out and try and make about three main steps or milestones to hit your main goal. If there are more than that or too many topics to stay specific, hone down your Coaching goals and objectives.
It’s recommended to stay out of being vague and general. Many Coaching agreements span for 30 days to 90 days. Depending on the nature of your goals and Coaching regimen, your agreement could be as long as 6 to 12 months.
NOTE: Try and have a clear goal and outcome so you can measure it as a solid benchmark.
Finding the perfect Coach, Consultant or service provider can mean the world of difference as you start to make progress by leaps and bounds. All attributed to finding someone that you connect with, trust and feel comfortable being held accountable by.
Here are a few questions that will help you get down to the right niche and characteristics:
You can ask yourself,
1.) “What do I NEED improved within 1-3 months from now?”
2.) “What is it costing me to stay in this place of inaction and pain?” Ex: Opportunities passing me by, or Agonizing fights with loved ones, or A Terrible feeling inside.
3.) Now, identify what niche or topic of Coach would have the greatest relevancy to your need or pain.
Most people who invest in coaching, have a desire or an outcome based on something materialistic. They think they need a different strategy or a tool that can help them get their desired results.
That’s great… however, they’ve got to be prepared to work for it even with a Coaching team behind them.
It would be great to snap our fingers or to pay someone some money to fix parts of our life, but it doesn’t work like that. Again, this is nothing new and I’m sure you understand that!
You’d be surprised how many Coaching clients think they need only to take one or two actions to get the results they’re looking for. Good coaches understand this but they also know that people really want to go to the next level in their lives. They want to step up to a new level with an overall, multi-skilled level of success.
Taking small steps to better our lives is a transition. Reaching a whole new level is a transformation. This fundamental change doesn’t just bring physical results, it brings a brand new identity. Losing 15-20 lbs is a transition. Dedicating oneself to living and eating healthy the rest of one’s life is a transformation. Getting a girlfriend is a transition but finding the love of your life and having kids is a transformation.
So, with that said, if there’s something you’re looking to accomplish or level up in your life… YOU CAN DO IT.
Don’t try and do it alone! Let someone in that can help. Even more, be ready for them to hold your feet to the fire for accountability, so that you can follow through on your action plan to growth.
Most great Coaches will tell you to make small consistent changes, and that’s great advice. Think of your growth and Coaching as a marathon that consists of many little sprints!
