Certification Program

The Leadership Trainer Certification Program is a one-of-a-kind, immersive, engaging, hands-on, train-the-trainer experience that will (a) prepare you to effectively develop the leadership skills and capacities of others through dynamic training experiences while (b) providing you with an intentional leadership development experience to enhance your own understanding and practice of leadership.

How can we expect the next generations of leaders to navigate the challenges we will inevitably face, if the leadership trainers of today are ill-prepared to facilitate their leadership development?

We can’t. We shouldn’t!

If we intend to develop the leadership skills and capacities of others, it is essential that we have      (a) an understanding of leadership theories and themes, (b) healthy leadership habits infused into our own practice, and (c) the facilitation techniques needed to ensure they can access, internalize, and then apply their leadership learning. Most leadership trainers are not prepared to serve in this capacity.

Until now, there has never been a concerted effort to intentionally and properly train folks to facilitate leadership trainings.

The Leadership Trainer Certification Program ​will prepare you to serve as the leadership-developer and trainer that your participants crave. This program is intentionally designed as an immersion into the triad of leadership theory, leadership practices, and facilitation skills. Our robust, comprehensive, hands-on, and engaging "train-the-trainer" curriculum will prepare you to serve as an effective leadership trainer.


Upon earning your Leadership Trainer Certification, you will become a savvy leadership trainer who can dynamically facilitate leadership development and education in multiple contexts: one-to-one and small group engagements; retreats and conference presentations; workshops and seminars; academic courses, diverse continuing education programs, and more!
