Step 1: Get Coached

The Coaching Process

The FOM Coaching™ process is intense, it’s intimate, and it’s designed to help you move rapidly. We know that leaders appreciate speed and that is why you will be in contact with your coach EVERY SINGLE DAY.  The frequency of contact is implemented specifically so that your coach is able to really understand who you are, how you operate, and what is vitally important to you in all kinds of circumstances.  You will experience the type of relationship with your coach that is refreshingly free, open, and transparent.  You will be invited to be yourself, tell your truth, and know that your FOM coach is your greatest ally.

FOM Methods was the most transformational experience of my life.

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.
