While working with a coach, driven by a contracting process, the client gradually develops a powerful performance-centered personal and operational endeavors.
In this way a contact process is not only offer a modus operandi that can ensure a specific project’s success, but it also provides indicators of the frame of reference, the hopes and fears, the strengths and weaknesses, etc. In fact, the study of contracts and agreements can as much reveal the “success and failure frame of reference” of the parties involved as they can offer avenues for their future development.
OTHER LEVELS OF COACHING CONTRACTSSession Agreements In the course of a coaching relationship over several months, the client will often face new and sometimes unexpected emerging themes that may or may not be in keeping with the original contract.
At the beginning of each coaching meeting or session, it is therefore useful for both the coach and client to “re-actualize the original contract with mid-term or short-term and operational “mini” contracts or agreements focused on emerging issues.
THE COACHING CONTRACTThe initial contract in coaching is often the most explicit or formal and has the most legal overtones.
It is most often written and concerns the general scope of the coach-client relationship.
