Consulting has been defined as “the business of giving expert advice to other professionals.” This expert adivice is based on the experiences, training, education and world-view of the coach/consultant.
Coaching is an ongoing relationship between a coach who is led by the Holy Spirit and a person who desires coaching. Together, we agree that:
- Coaching is not therapy, counseling, advice-giving, mental health care, or treatment for substance abuse. The coach is not functioning as a licensed mental health professional, and coaching is not intended as a replacement for counseling, psychiatric interventions, treatment for mental illness, recovery from past abuse, professional medical advice, financial assistance, legal counsel, or other professional services.
- Coaching is for people who are basically well-adjusted, emotionally healthy, functioning effectively, and wanting to make changes in their lives.
- Coaching is designed to address issues the person being coached would like to consider. These could include (but are not limited to) career development, relationship enhancement, spiritual growth, lifestyle management, life balance, decision-making, and achieving short-term or long-term goals.
- Coaching will be an ongoing relationship that may take a number of months, although either party can terminate the relationship at any time.
- Coaching can involve brainstorming, values clarification, the completion of written assignments, education, goal-setting, identifying plans of action, accountability, making requests, agreements to change behavior, examining lifestyles, and questioning.
- Coaching is most effective when both parties are honest and straightforward in their communication.
- Coaching will take place by telephone and email unless agreed upon otherwise. It is the responsibility of the person being coached to call the coach on the agreed upon day and time for every coaching session.
- Both parties will be diligent and prompt for sessions in order to make the most of their time together. If either party must cancel or re-schedule, it will be done at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance. Missed sessions and failing to cancel with the required notice, excepting emergencies, will result in being billed $55 for the session.
- Payment for services will be discussed prior to coaching and both parties will agree to a fee, form of payment, and initial length of commitment. However, fees are due prior to services being provided, except on a monthly billing cycle, in which case fees are due at the beginning of the month for services that month.
- Coaching is a confidential relationship and the coach agrees to keep all information strictly confidential, except in those situations where such confidentiality would violate the law, where permission has been granted, and with respect to tracking names, hours coached, and contact information where necessary for coaching certification.
- Coaching assumes that each person in the relationship is guided by his or her values and beliefs. The coach is a committed follower of Jesus Christ and seeks to live in accordance with this commitment. The coach is honest in making this declaration, but he respects the different values and beliefs of others. The coach does not seek to impose his values on another, proselytize, condemn, or refuse coaching services to people who do not share similar values and beliefs.
- Coaching will be fun, exciting, and rewarding for both parties.
- All clients must sign a coaching/consulting agreement which serves as an agreement that represents our mutual understanding of the coaching relationship.
