On November 12, 2020, Logos President Helio Fred Garcia offered his insights on why contracts are important tools for coaches on Awarenow. Awarenow is a business management platform for coaching organizations. The article, “3 Ways Coaches Can Use Contracts and Why Every Coach Needs Them,” harvested advice from more than a dozen industry leaders on the purpose of and best practices for contracts for coaches.
Garcia highlighted the ways that contracts can help set and enforce expectations between a coach and their client, protecting both parties in turn: “Contracts are tools to set expectations between the coach and the client. For clients, it determines what services they can expect to receive, for how much, and over what period of time. For coaches, contracts protect them from over-servicing clients and being underpaid.” He continued, “If there is ever disagreement or confusion, both parties have something objective to refer back to.”
