Description of Tony Robbins Coaching

We focus our attention only on the Tony Robbins Coaching portion of the Tony Robbins empire. We admire what Tony Robbins has done as a great showman to advise and inspire many people to improve themselves through his unique seminars and his many motivational products. He is very active in the human improvement field and he has many devoted followers. Robbins reported that he started “Tony Robbins Coaching” around 1999 as a new product line to seminar attendees and CD listeners. You are welcome to visit Tony Robbins Coaching to see for yourself.

The descriptions and facts presented here about Tony Robbins Coaching have been carefully researched to be sure they are not only accurate but are not misleading. In fact, Tony Robbins had his attorneys sent a detailed letter scrutinizing our comparison. We made several changes to honor Robbin’s position and to improve accuracy and clarity. And we try to stay current with Tony Robbins Coaching to be sure we are providing a truthful comparison. We strongly encourage anyone to advise us of anything presented here that might be inaccurate or misleading, so we can make appropriate adjustments.

Commissioned sales persons sell the coaching program
Prospective Tony Robbins Coaching clients are sometimes offered a short sample coaching session as an enticement. But they have to go through commissioned sales people who have been reported to apply considerable pressure until they sign a contract.

Clients must sign a restrictive long term contract
The Tony Robbins Coaching contract protects Robbins from “any warranties, promises, guarantees, or representations made by Tony Robbins Inc, US or anyone acting or claiming to act on behalf of Tony Robbins Inc. US”. In other words, once clients sign the Robbins contract, all promises by Robbins sales people and/or representations by Robbins literature regarding the coaching service are no longer valid. Contracts commit clients from 6 to 18 months.

Clients assigned to one coach
Tony Robbins Coaching clients are rarely coached by Tony Robbins. Instead, clients are assigned a coach. Clients have no say in the selection of their coach. Robbins claims to have from 20 to 70 coaches. There is no mention of qualifications or standards. Clients must also justify to Robbins Coaching why they might be allowed to switch coaches. Robbins coaches are rated for how well they can keep their assigned clients and how well they can sell other Robbins products and services.

Confusing fees
Coaching is sold in packages from 6 to 18 months that vary dramatically based upon contract length, payment terms, negotiations, other conditions, and are tough to pin down. We believe the lowest fees are about $5,000 to $10,000 for a 6 month package that require advanced payment in full. Cancellation fees are also required.

Robbins Coaching information is difficult to get
Tony Robbins Coaching guards the details about their coaching program. Little is published in public. Thus, potential clients must rely on the verbal information provided by Robbins sales people, who are not accountable for what they say. The information on this page has been gathered from conversations with former clients, over a dozen former Robbins coaches, online forums, Tony Robbins contracts, Attorneys representing Tony Robbins Coaching, and other sources. Obtaining factual or even published coaching fees has been very difficult. We welcome hearing from anyone (Including Tony Robbins Coaching) who will provide us with more accurate information.


Analysis

Lack of published information is a matter for concern
The secrecy surrounding Tony Robbins coaching raises questions as to the nature and quality of the coaching service. It appears that fees, terms and conditions are subject to negotiations between sales people and prospective clients.

Any coach is good enough
It appears the Robbins approach does not take into consideration the importance of the relationship between the client and coach. There appears to be no concern that the personality and connection between the client and coach be favorable and positive. Under these conditions, it would be blind luck if a client connected with their ideal coach.

Strong One-Sided Contract
Tony Robbins Coaching commissioned sales people (and Tony Robbins Coaches) can make any promises or claims about Tony Robbins Coaching to potential clients because Tony Robbins Coaching clients are forced to sign a contract that absolves Tony Robbins and his coaching program to hold them libel free from anything the sales people, the sales information, and/or the web site might have said or represented. The commissioned sales people are highly motivated to make the sale. Thus, they can say anything to make the sale, knowing that they and Robbins are protected by the contract from anything they said to make the sale. The Robbins contract fully protects Tony Robbins while it binds the clients in many ways.

Success rates likely to be well below average
Robbins does not publish success rates. However, since the Robbins coaching system disregards the 6 Essential Conditions for successful coaching, it is most likely Tony Robbins Coaching has a very low success rate.
