Template Executive Coaching Contract

August 18, 2011  |   Executive Coaching Blog   |     |   0 Comment

When you start as an Executive Coach one of the last things you tend to think about is your Executive Coaching Contract documentation. Your focus is more on marketing your business rather than the administration. This article is written to help those who need a template executive coaching contract. It contains the main details that need to be covered. But you will need to tailor it to the way in which you organise your own coaching contract.


It is worth using a formal contract document and big companies will expect you to have one. By getting this signed prior to the commencement of coaching all the details of the contract are agreed in advance. It means that the executive coaching work can take place with all parties understanding what will be provided and at what cost. In the event of dispute or cancellations this template covers what will happen. I hope you find it helpful. You may well want to get the contract checked by a Solicitor in advance of using it. However it has served its purpose well up to now.
