Get It in Writing

Another important aspect of action stage is contracting.You already know that contracts are verbal or written agreements stating what the client is to accomplish and what will happen when the accomplishment takes place.For instance a client and personal fitness trainer might produce a contract in which the client states.If I loss five pounds,I will buy myself a new skirt. Contracts should be stated in clear, positive terms.Avoid contracts that come off as a threat instead focus on positive rewards.Contracts can be effective motivation tools, especially when the reinforcement is received immediately following contract completion.
