This Agreement is entered into by and between Explorians, a division of Workfutures Group Ltd., hereafter the âCoachâ and the buyer of Exploriansâ coaching services, hereafter the âClientâ, whereby the Coach agrees to provide coaching services to the Client focussing on the agreed goals and topics for the coaching engagement.
Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client, as well as a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the Client to maximize their 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.
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 coaching program.
The Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing his/her strategy/ plan, decisions, choices, actions, results and own physical, mental and emotional well-being arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and his/her coaching sessions and interactions with the Coach. The 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 Clientâs responsibility. The 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.
The Coach agrees to maintain the ethics and standards of behaviour established by the International Coach Federation â(ICF)â (Coachfederation.org/ethics). It is recommended that the Client reviews the ICF Code of Ethics and the applicable standards of behaviour.
The Coach and Client agree the objectives of the coaching engagement in the first session during the discovery phase and refine those over the course of the following sessions.
Exploriansâ coaching approach is holistic, iterative and non-directive, with a clear framework, goals and structure for the coaching process and each conversation. To achieve the agreed results of the engagement, we use a wide repertoire of human-centred, future-led, systemic and solution-focussed interventions and the Coachâs experience and expertise to help the Client achieve his or her goals.
The Coach may recommend diagnostics tools, such as personality inventories, 360-degree feedbacks etc. to gain further data points for reflection, if needed. This, however, depends on the Clientâs unique situation and will be agreed on an as-needs basis. If diagnostic data is already available, the Coach will integrate it in in the coaching engagement as early as possible.
Both parties, Coach and Client, agree to engage in a coaching partnership, which comprise a series of scheduled Zoom video meetings. The Coach will be available to the Client by e-mail and chat in between scheduled meetings and support the Client in his or her goals to his or her best possible extent.
