  • I acknowledge that I have an obligation to maintain the confidentiality of all information shared during group coaching sessions.  I acknowledge that I have the right to pursue breaches of confidentiality directly against the breaching participant and that Catalyst LLC is not obligated to pursue such claims against another participant on my behalf.  I further release Catalyst LLC from any liability for such breaches by other participants.
  • I understand our relationship is a partnership relationship.  My coach is not there to provide advice or direct the process or outcomes.  I own our relationship. I trust the coaching process.  
  • I understand our relationship is collaborative.  Both the coach and I will agree to bring a spirit of openness, curiosity, and experimentation to this coaching relationship.
  • I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my wellbeing and subsequently, including my choices and decisions.  I am responsible for any actions or outcomes related to my coaching.  I will only get out of coaching what I put into it.

Coaching is a privilege and works on the principles of discovery, awareness, action, planning, and accountability.  The details of our arrangement include the following procedures:


  • Please be on time for coaching.  If after 10 minutes you do not join, you will need to reschedule based on availability.
  • You will have coaching over several months that may include a kick-off, mid-point, and wrap-up conversation with you, your coach, and your manager.  
  • You will complete a self-evaluation before and after the process, create coaching goals, and those goals may be shared with your manager.
  • It is highly recommended you meet with your coach twice a month or at least every 3 weeks for maximum effectiveness.  
  • During discovery, you’ll lean into growth mindset and curiosity to explore where you’re at, where you’re going, and how to get there using the Catalyst process.  
  • During routine coaching, you’ll create coaching goals written by you with input from your coach.  These goals will be used as the basis for coaching sessions.
  • You are encouraged to capture and document key themes, insights, or action steps during or after each coaching session.  This will help you retain what was discussed and note what actions you will take at the end of each session.  Your coach may take notes as well; these are for their own use to paraphrase back what was said and/or to check in on progress from the last session.
  • If you need to cancel, please let your coach know as early as possible.  Cancellations within 2 days of the event will be billed as indicated.   Catalyst LLC will be as flexible as possible as we know life is unpredictable.
  • You may email your coach outside of sessions and they will respond within 48 hours, Monday-Friday for questions or support.


I have read and agree to ALL the provisions of this coaching partnership agreement set forth above and will honor them during our relationship.
