Our Expectations of You

Commitment

You will come to each session having thought about what you want to accomplish in our time together. At times, this will be easy for you and sometimes you will be in a place you aren’t sure what you want to do, and that’s ok too. You’ll get the most out of our coaching relationship if you are willing to use the time between sessions to reflect work on tasks we determine together. You will protect our appointment time and you will minimize disruptions.

Consistency

You will be on time to each session and keep scheduled appointments. Should you need to reschedule an appointment, you will do so at least 24 hours in advance.

Consistency

We will be on time to each session and keep scheduled appointments. We will be as flexible as our schedule allows if rescheduling appointments is necessary.
