Step 03

Foundations

FOM Foundations is a 10 week group course that provides you with both coaching guidance from a senior FOM Coach as well direct, hands-on coaching experience. In this course, you will have your own “coach” and your own “client.” You will experience coaching from both sides of the table and this duality will equip you to deliver exceptional coaching.

Coaching is the First Step

A great coach must first experience the coaching they will share with others and address their own baggage in order to effectively coach their clients and team members.

Great Leaders Are Great Coaches

Whether or not coaching is your career, we know firsthand that great leaders have great coaching skills. Our certification program is focused on using coaching as a critical leadership skill that you can bring back to your office immediately.

FOM Methods was the best educational experience of my life. I look forward to immediately applying the coaching concepts and strategies with my clients. At FOM Methods, you develop relationships with your fellow students and fully see all of them with their hopes, dreams, challenges and hang-ups. Everyone is there to learn and improve their coaching skills. There's no competition or ego involved. I was initially concerned about a 3-day virtual class, but the time flew by quickly. FOM Methods exceeded all my expectations.

FOM Methods was INCREDIBLE! For the first time during the pandemic, I felt like I escaped my house for 3 days straight and was transported into a new world. I came back from this experience with renewed passion and vigor for life. I am so lucky to have been a part of such an amazing experience and have met such impressive people.

FOM Methods was the most transformational experience of my life. The virtual experience was incredible - I was so immersed, the time flew by and I felt like I was in the same room as my peers. I shared with people (who I had never met before) the deepest, most personal things I ever have, however I felt so safe, included and vulner-able. The Frame of Mind Coaching™ methodologies can be applied in almost every situation. If you are keen on becoming a coach, I highly encourage you to do FOM Methods. I 110% will be attending again.

FOM Methods was a life changing experience for me. After getting coached with Frame of Mind Coaching™, FOM Methods took it leaps and bounds further by helping me practice the coaching tools to apply these principles to myself and others. All the principles seemed to come to life and became much more apparent in real life scenarios. FOM Methods gave me the tools to start making significant changes to the way I think about the world around me and the people in it, and the inspiration to focus on what will bring me joy! It is wonderful to have support along this journey of growth!
