Legal Templates For Coaches FAQs
What should I do if a client doesn’t show up for a session?
It’s important to spell out your rules ahead of time. As long as you set expectations early, this will go smoothly. For example, a business coach could charge a client for any sessions cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled session. Of course, you can extend mercy if there’s a good reason at your discretion. Our legal templates for coaches prescribe a policy that will set you up for success.
What if my client reuses my material?
You want to include protective clauses in your business coaching agreement with your clients just to make crystal clear that they cannot reuse or misappropriate your work product for someone else. In other words, no copycats allowed.
What’s the best policy for payment?
You must be clear about your fees and policies. We recommend that you get some payment up front and then include provisions to provide leverage in case someone does not pay (i.e. late fees and prevailing party clause). Ideally, a professional coach never runs into payment problems. To do that, you should make sure you are setting yourself up for success by working with good clients and being clear about payments and policies on the front end.
