In serving the ICF community he has noticed that most traditional law firm approaches to have left coaches and entrepreneurs inadequately protected. Most coaching contracts fall into one of two problematic categories: 1. the contract leaves the coach unprotected or 2. the coach is in an overly aggressive stance with his or her clients.
