This will depend on the structure provided by the coach / methodology. Let’s look at this on an annual basis. Typically you can expect to spend approximately 5 full business days in strategic sessions. There will also be monthly and weekly meetings. What is important to note is that this time commitment should not necessarily be on top of what you are already doing. There needs to be an impactful optimization of time spent on meetings within the business. If you were already spending time working on strategy, the time commitment will be more of a trade off. If not, there will be some more time needed for the process. But again, a huge part of business coaching is saying no as much as yes. Time will definitely be gained when working with a business methodology.
