Get Started
Description

This essential background session helps establish a deeper connection for an ongoing coaching relationship. It is meant to gain an understanding of your history, the client. My goal in this first intake session is to walk away with an understanding of you, what you hope to get out of coaching and identify some initial patterns to work from. Most clients find this very powerful and find themselves full of ideas to implement right away.


We will discuss:

challenges

strengths

weaknesses

what works

what doesn't work

current structures and habits (good and bad)

Goals short term & long term

any pertinent history helpful for future coaching

Prerequisite

Coaching Agreement



This agreement is made and entered into today between Michelle Raz (“Coach”) and  You the “client”. 


The services to be provided by Coach to Client are coaching services. 


1.         Appointments: All Client services are by appointment only. Coaching appointments are reserved for Client. Coach reserves the right to bill Client in full for a missed appointment, if the meeting is not cancelled at least 24-hours prior to the scheduled time. Client is expected to be available, prepared, and on time for all appointments.  


* I do my best to reschedule within the same week given notice of a canceled appointment.


2. Coaching Plan Fees: Client shall pay a fee to Coach in consideration for Coach’s work with respect to Client’s chosen area(s) of productivity in accordance with the terms of a Raz Coaching Package as chosen by client.


3. Payment: Payment is due by credit card  powered by Stripe or through PayPal.  


4. Privacy: Coach agrees to maintain complete anonymity of all Client information disclosed or received from any third party unless permission is received. If it is necessary for the Coach to gain access to information from schools, therapists, physicians or other professionals; Coach will provide a standard information release form for Client signature. 


However, the terms of anonymity shall not apply where failure to disclose may be, in Coach’s sole discretion, in violation of any law or may involve information regarding certain crimes that have either been committed or Coach believes may be committed, or when such information is subject to subpoena. 



5. Coaching Process and Disclaimer: Coaching is designed to guide the Client to learn how to consistently achieve results and make purposeful choices. Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and create the time and energy to participate fully in the coaching program. However, due to the totally subjective nature of the work, Client understands and agrees, that Coach makes no guarantee as to the results Client will achieve, nor is Coach responsible for, the results achieved by Client from the coaching. 


Client understands that coaching is NOT therapy and does not substitute for therapy if needed, and does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.


6. Disputes: Should a dispute arise out of this Agreement that cannot be resolved by mutual agreement of the parties, Client and Coach agree to resolve the dispute by negotiating in good faith for 30 days after notice of the dispute is given. If the dispute is not resolved, and in the event of legal action, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover attorney’s fees and court costs from the other party


7. Emergencies: If there is a medical emergency, physical or psychological, DO NOT CONTACT THE COACH’S OFFICE. Emergency issues must be addressed directly by your doctor or therapist, or by dialing emergency 9-1-1 services if warranted.


8. Terms and Termination of Services: The terms of the Agreement shall be in a prepaid Raz Coaching Package basis and will automatically continue under the same terms and conditions unless terminated by Coach or client by providing prior notice to the other party. Coach will refund any advance payments made for coaching services not yet rendered in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. 


Client understands and agrees that fees paid for services rendered, appointments canceled without required notice are not refundable. This Agreement may be amended upon mutual agreement of the parties. 


9. Complete Agreement: This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties, and reflects a complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter and supersedes all prior written and oral representations, communications or agreements. The parties agree that this Agreement shall be deemed to have been signed and performed in the State of Colorado (State where Raz Coaching resides);
