Description of Coaching:
Coaching is partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.

A. Coach agrees to maintain the ethics and standards of behavior established by the International Coach Federation “(ICF)”
B. Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing his/her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, and actions that may arise out of or resulting from coaching. As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the Coach.
