The Client can convert coaching sessions to mentoring or consulting sessions upon request.

Engagement Format and Payment

Sessions will be one hour in length and the first session will focus on initial planning and goal setting.

Should the Client elect to pay the contract in full, the payment is due in full before the start of the initial planning session. Should the Client elect the payment plan option, the first payment is due before the initial planning session. Subsequent payments are due on the 1st day of each month as specified above.

Should the Client fail to make a contractual payment, the Coach will be under no obligation to continue to render services under this contract. The services will resume after the full missed payments are made under the conditions of this contract.

Cancellation and Refunds

The Client has the right to request another Tandem Coach at any time prior to the start or no later than 4th coaching session of the engagement. Tandem reserves the right to decline Client's request for a different Coach for any reason.

The Client has the right to terminate the coaching engagement at any time prior to the start or during the engagement for any reason.

Should the Client decide to terminate the contract before the start of the engagement, Tandem will issue full refund of the funds paid to date minus 5% administrative fee.

Should the Client decide to terminate the contract during the engagement before the 5th (fifth) coaching session and the client prepaid the engagement in full, Tandem will issue a refund in the amount of 50% (fifty) of all the funds paid. Tandem will issue no refund after the engagement start if the client chose to pay in installments.

Tandem will issue no refund after the 5th (fifth) session.

Other Provisions

Coaching will be provided only during pre-scheduled live calls. A 24-hour cancellation notice is requested when an appointment must be canceled or rescheduled. Every effort will be made to accommodate changes.

In the event of late cancellation (less than 3 hours prior to the session) or Client “no show” for a session, the session will be considered complete and deducted from the number of the sessions available to the client.
