BMI Leadership Coaching FAQs
Does the coaching take place over the phone or face-to-face?
Either. To keep expenses down, most of our clients choose to work with their coach over the phone. This method can be highly effective, especially as the relationship between the coach and client develops over time. Face-to-face sessions can be arranged (with the client bearing the travel costs), especially if the coach is engaged to work with a leadership team in addition to a particular leader.
Is a long-term contract required?
No. The benefits of leadership coaching are generally best realized over time. For that reason, most leadership coaching organizations set a minimum engagement period of nine months to one year. To keep our service affordable, BMI has established a three session minimum term. This requirement only applies if you decided to continue after the initial coaching assessment session.
How much does it cost?
The initial coaching assessment is free. If you choose to proceed with an ongoing engagement after that session, you will do a spiritual leadership assessment, which costs $250. Once you and your coach decide to move forward with an ongoing leadership coaching engagement, you will work together to determine a schedule and payment plan that best suits you and your desired outcomes. Our coaches have differing experience levels and associated fees. We will work with you to find the right coach at a price that works for you.
How long should I utilize a coach?
The answer depends on what you sense God wants to change in your life and leadership. Some people have a specific issue they wish to address. A BMI coach can help clients determine God’s will for them in that specific area and the steps they must take to achieve success. If clients have several issues or goals they want to work through, the coaching process could take a year or longer. BMI coaches will work with you until they believe you have achieved your divinely inspired goals.
What is the basic process BMI coaches use?
BMI coaches will not tell you what to do or set goals for you. Instead they will guide you to determine what God wants to do through you. Then they will help you identify actions that will move you to where God wants you to be. The coach will encourage you and hold you accountable to your goals and commitments until you have successfully arrived at your God-ordained destination.
