Client Name
(if applicable)
I, Jacqueline McLaughlin (Coach), am offering this agreement to provide career coaching to the CLIENT (as named at the top of this agreement).
Career coaching supports leaders in achieving the results that are important to his or her personal success and the long-term success of his or her organization. I assume that my client is the expert on his or her own career. My role as a coach is to draw out the Client’s expertise through inquiry, curiosity and gentle challenges. I help the Client to stretch into his or her best self. To do that, I introduce self-observation exercises and behavioral practices. I am attentive to my client’s physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual state. I help the Client to focus on his or her presence and behaviors. My role as a coach is distinct from consulting, advising, therapy, or counseling. However, coaching does address personal issues or life conditions that impact a Client’s professional effectiveness.
The anticipated outcomes of career coaching for the Client include:
• Identification of a career strategy, including short-term career search goals and multi-year career development plan.
• Identification of key behaviors to maintain or alter in order to increase career effectiveness. This may include job search strategies or business plan development, as requested.
• With sufficient Client commitment to the process, improvement will be noticeable and measurable on specific career behaviors.
• Long-term effectiveness based on increased capacity to achieve results through building and maintaining healthy business relationships.
My approach to career coaching includes the following:
1. Determine Client’s commitment to the coaching process: to solicit and assess feedback, work to develop more effective behaviors, involve stakeholders to support desired changes, and measure the results of the behavior change effort.

2. Identify with the Client the high-leverage behaviors to focus on which will provide the most strategic benefit for the Client.

3. Partner with the Client in understanding and responding to feedback.

4. Support the Client in engaging more productively in career activities.

5. Conduct scheduled coaching sessions in person or by phone, on a regularly agreed upon basis.

6. Follow-up assessments to measure the Client’s improvement.
Coaching is based on confidentiality. Confidentiality is essential to building the trust needed for an effective working relationship between the Client and the coach.

The Coach agrees to keep all conversations and information with the Client private and confidential. No personal ideas, information or thoughts expressed will be shared with anyone except with the expressed permission of the Client. The Client agrees to keep all proprietary methodologies, exercises and best practices with the Coach in confidence.
