Coaching Terms & Conditions

1. The Program. Client contracts to engage sales coaching services of Southwestern Consulting, Inc. (“SWC”) by enrollment into a composite of programs (“Programs”) chosen and notated on this Coaching Enrollment Form (“Enrollment”), including the following:
(i) On average, 2x 30 to 45 minutes personal consulting calls per month (maximum of 24 calls during the program term);
(ii) Access to the Critical Success Factors (CSF) online statistics tool while in the program;
(iii) Access to archive of on-line supplemental training materials.

The Program provides clients with sales and management training, and the services expressly do not provide for or constitute life coaching, or any manner of psychological or emotional consulting services.
Client acknowledges that 24 hour advance notice is required to reschedule personal consulting call noted under (i) above. In the event that Client does not provide advance notice and misses a scheduled consulting call, SWC will endeavor to contact the Client within the scheduled call time. The call counts towards the maximum of 24 calls during the program term no matter the duration of the call if not rescheduled in advance.

2. Term. Client commits to an initial twelve (12) month participation in the Program upon signing the Coaching Enrollment Form. Following expiration of the initial twelve month term, Enrollment shall run month-to-month until such time as either party or both parties terminate Enrollment or a particular Program in accordance with these terms.

3. Cancellation. To terminate Enrollment after the initial twelve month term, Client must provide SWC at least 30 days written notice, in print or electronically, delivered to and acknowledged by the CFO of SWC at SWC’s principal offices or his authorized designate. Termination will take effect at the end of the next billing cycle following notice delivery and acknowledgment. SWC reserves the right to terminate Enrollment or any particular Program at any time upon providing Client written notice, in print or electronically, sent to Client’s contact information inserted on this Coaching Enrollment Form. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, the Client will no longer have client access to the products and services of SWC and all such products or services wanted by the Client will, then, be paid on a per product or per service ordered basis. If Client cancels its/his/her Program participation before the expiration of the initial twelve months of this Agreement, Client agrees to pay all fees due SWC and any remaining balance of the fee that Client agrees to pay hereunder in relation to the initial twelve month term.

4. Non-Payment. Client’s failure to pay or pay per terms will result in a) suspension of Client’s Program eligibility, b) Client’s forfeiture of all rights and privileges of a fully paying client of the Program, and c) all outstanding fees becoming immediately due and payable from Client to SWC and its assigns, all without further demand or notice.

5. Limited Liability.
A. SWC and Client concur that the Program is designed for individuals who clearly understand that they each, and not SWC and its coaches, are responsible for their own personal and professional success and career progression. SWC shall not be responsible, or liable to the Client or any individual Program participant, for any missed goals, disappointing sales production, and lost or diminished economic opportunity that could be alleged or claimed to be caused, in whole or in part, by SWC and its coaches and their Programs.
B. Client and each individual Program participant shall DISCHARGE, PROTECT and HOLD HARMLESS SWC, its parent and related entities and their officers, directors, employees, representatives, agents, coaches, successors and assigns from any and all controversies, demands, claims, actions, injuries, damages, obligations, liabilities, and legal expense which arise from or are incidental to the Programs and coaching or participation in any events associated with the Programs, presence upon the premises of any place or forum utilized for any Programs, and any loss of vocational and economic opportunity or gain despite the Programs involving Client and the individual Program participants, except to the extent actual damages or injuries are directly caused solely by the willful and wrongful misconduct of SWC, its employees and coaches occurring from any Program.
C. Without prejudice to sections A and B above, SWC’s total liability in contract, tort (including without limitation negligence or breach of statutory duty howsoever arising), misrepresentation (whether innocent or negligent), restitution or otherwise, arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance or non-performance of this contract shall be limited to the amount paid by Client to SWC pursuant to this contract.

6. Governance. This Agreement is made in and presented from SWC’s principal offices in Nashville, Tennessee. These terms are governed by, and will be construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Tennessee despite any conflict of legal principles and rules to the contrary. If a dispute or claim as between the parties arises from this Enrollment, the parties will exercise reasonable efforts to resolve same in an amiable, efficient and effective manner before resorting to legal intervention. However, if such a resolution is not reached in a fair and timely manner, a party may bring legal action against the other party for claims under this Agreement, in which event each party to this Agreement will submit exclusively to the general and personal jurisdiction of the courts of competent jurisdiction, state and federal, situated in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee and no other venue unless SWC expressly consents to a different venue, and each party shall WAIVE ITS RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL as to such action.

9. Parties Bound.
