Welcome to Insight Coaching Stl. Life, Leadership and Team Coaching. Coaching is an ongoing alliance between a Coach and the person (s) being Coached (client). In order for Coaching to work there needs to be a clear Goal that is established by the client. Coaching helps the client move from where they start to where the want to get. Coaching embraces moving forward to both Results and Growth for and by the client. The Coach will not provide solutions or give the Client directions to follow. The Coach will facilitate the Client to have self discovery in these areas.
As your Coach, I will only be providing Coaching and I will only use the methods that a Masterful Coach would use as defined by the International Coaching Federation. Our Coaching relationship will follow all of the Ethical Guideline spelled out by the International Coaching Federation. All information will be held in strict confidentiality unless I am ordered by the Court to give that information or if the information given in a session reveals that a client is preparing to do harm to him or her self or to others (Coaching has limited confidentiality immunity in these areas).

Agreement to list your name on My Coaching Log as required by the International Coaching Federation (you may be contacted by the ICF to verify that I have Coached you. This if required for me to maintain and to upgrade my credentials)
Coaching assumes that each person in the Coaching Relationship (Coach/Client) is guided by his or her values and beliefs. Insight Coaching Stl has a Christian Perspective and our Coaches are committed Christians and seek to live their lives according to that perspective. Insight Coaching Stl is honest in making this disclosure but respects the values and beliefs of others. Insight Coaching and their Coaches are not seeking to impose their values and beliefs on others and thus will not try to proselytize, condemn or refuse Coaching services to others who hold different beliefs unless those differences hinder the Coaching relationship and limit the effectiveness of the Coaching relationship. If that occurs, the Coach will offer to refer the Client to another Coach.
Each of the persons whose signatures appear below agrees that this agreement represents a mutual understanding of the above unless the conditions are mutually terminated and/or re negotiate
