These Coaching Terms and Conditions constitute the coaching agreement (“Agreement”) entered into by and between Client and Autumn Grace-Noble O’Hanlon of Noble Ventures, LLC, d/b/a the Lawyer Life Collective, 3713 North 83rd Street, Omaha, NE 68134 (“Coach”) for coaching services.
Coaching is a 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.
Coach-Client Relationship. Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing his/her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions, and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and his/her coaching calls and interactions with the Coach. 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. Client understands 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.
Client further acknowledges that he/she may terminate or discontinue the coaching relationship at any time, subject to Coach’s cancellation and refund policy.
Client acknowledges that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of his or her life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. The Client agrees that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching principles into those areas and implementing choices is exclusively the Client’s responsibility.
Client acknowledges that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association and that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, or other professional advice by legal, medical or other qualified professionals and that it is the Client’s exclusive responsibility to seek such independent professional guidance as needed. If Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, it is recommended that the Client promptly inform the mental health care provider of the nature and extent of the coaching relationship agreed upon by the Client and the Coach.
The Client understands that in order to enhance the coaching relationship, the Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.
Services. The parties agree to engage in a Coaching Program exclusively through Zoom video conferencing. Client agrees to maintain appropriate cellular and/or internet access to engage in Zoom meetings and agrees to attend meetings in a place that is private and free from distractions. Coach will be available to Client by e-mail in between scheduled meetings only for emergencies. Coach reserves the right to deduct time spent providing coaching via email from Client’s session balance and will provide notice of same to Client.
Schedule and Fees. Where Client selects installment payments for Coaching Services, periodic payments shall commence on the date of the initial purchase and recur on the same day of each successive month until full payment terms are completed, in accordance with Client’s payment election at checkout.
Where additional sessions are purchased following execution of this agreement, prevailing rates shall apply, unless otherwise agreed to.
Each Zoom meeting/call shall be scheduled for 45 minutes but may last up to one hour.
Payment terms and conditions are binding and refunds are not available for coaching services. Unused sessions may be transferred or gifted to a friend or family member upon prior notice and written consent of Coach.
Sessions. The time of the coaching meetings will be determined by Coach and Client based on a mutually agreed upon time. The Client will initiate all scheduled calls through the Zoom link provided to the Client in advance of the meeting.
Confidentiality. This coaching relationship, as well as all information (documented or verbal) that the Client shares with the Coach as part of this relationship, is bound by the principles of confidentiality. However, please be aware that the Coach-Client relationship is not considered a legally confidential relationship (like the medical and legal professions) and thus communications are not subject to the protection of any legally recognized privilege. The Coach agrees not to disclose any information pertaining to the Client without the Client’s written consent. The Coach will not disclose the Client’s name as a reference without the Client’s consent. Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) was in the Coach’s possession prior to its being furnished by the Client; (b) is generally known to the public or in the Client’s industry; (c) is obtained by the Coach from a third party, without breach of any obligation to the Client; (d) is independently developed by the Coach without use of or reference to the Client’s confidential information; (e) the Coach is required by statute, lawfully issued subpoena, or by court order to disclose; (f) is disclosed to the Coach and as a result of such disclosure the Coach reasonably believes there to be an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to the Client or others; and (g) involves illegal activity. The Client also acknowledges his or her continuing obligation to raise any confidentiality questions or concerns with the Coach in a timely manner.
Release of Information. The Coach engages in training and continuing education pursuing and/or maintaining credentials. According to the ethics of our profession, topics may be anonymously and hypothetically shared with other coaching professionals for training, supervision, mentoring, evaluation, and for coach professional development and/or consultation purposes.
Cancellation Policy. Client agrees that it is the Client’s responsibility to notify the Coach 48 hours in advance of the scheduled calls/meetings where Client intends to cancel the meeting. Coach reserves the right to bill Client for a missed meeting. Coach will attempt in good faith to reschedule the missed meeting. Sessions not cancelled 48 hours in advance are not eligible to be rescheduled except as otherwise agreed to in writing by Coach.
Termination. Either the Client or the Coach may terminate the coaching relationship at any time with 30 days’ prior written notice. Client agrees to compensate the Coach for all coaching services rendered through and including the effective date of termination of the coaching relationship, based upon the individual session rate for the package elected by Client.
Limited Liability. Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, the Coach makes no guarantees, representations or warranties of any kind or nature, express or implied with respect to the coaching services negotiated, agreed upon and rendered. In no event shall the Coach be liable to the Client for any indirect, consequential or special damages. Notwithstanding any damages that the Client may incur, the Coach’s entire liability under this Agreement, and the Client’s exclusive remedy, shall be limited to the amount actually paid by the Client to the Coach under this Agreement for all coaching services rendered through and including the termination date.
Entire Agreement. These Terms and Conditions reflect the entire Agreement between the Coach and the Client and reflects a complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter. This Agreement supersedes all prior written and oral representations. These Terms and Conditions may be amended from time to time without notice to Client.
Dispute Resolution. If a dispute arises out of this Agreement that cannot be resolved by mutual consent, the Client and Coach agree to attempt to mediate in good faith for up to 30 days after notice is given. If the dispute is not so 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.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If the Court finds that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.
Waiver. The failure of either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of that party’s right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of this Agreement.
Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective successors and permissible assigns.
