Facilitator Certification Goes ONLINE!!!

We have been encouraged to move our successful facilitator certification program to an online delivery for the last couple of years. I am proud to announce that we have just committed to conduct our first online facilitator certification during the months of March and April. We have been delivering this program over an intense, face-to-face five day week for many years. This certification class will consist of 32 hours of online interaction. Here is how this will work...

We will meet online on these dates and times: March 28, March 30, April 4, 6, 11, 13, 18, and 20. All sessions will be held from 9 AM to 1 PM PDT. Participants should have flexibility to get other things done during the online class days and during the week.

In order to earn certification, participants getting certified can miss only one, 4 hour workshop. Any missed classes beyond the one that is allowed, would be required to be made up, for which there will be an additional fee described below.

We are planning on using Zoom as our online video application so that we approximate being together in a live session. All materials (electronic and physical) will be forwarded to participants well in advance for their preparation ahead of time.

There are over 20 modules in the Core Coaching and Accountability Workshop in which to become "grounded". Your preparation will consist of studying preassigned modules for delivery beginning the second week of certification. Each facilitator will walk us and talk us through the assigned modules "simulating" how you would deliver this in a live workshop. The class and I will provide you developmental feedback on your facilitation.

Each participant will receive a complete Facilitator's Kit to include: "The Heart of Coaching" book, a participant workshop workbook, a thumb drive with all electronic slides and videos which will be used in workshop delivery, the coaching game which is used to demonstrate the power of coaching-in-action, and a 3-ring binder containing the Talking Points for all of the experiential activities.

The fees for this online certification will be $2500 payable by March 10, and make-up sessions required for certification will cost $300 per session. All materials will be shipped to you in advance along with a link to a pre-recorded Orientation webinar. Here is a link to the registration form.

Please contact me if you have questions. If you know of internal or external consultants, facilitators, and professional coaches who might be interested in a certification such as this, please feel free to share this newsletter. I will gladly pay a 5% referral fee for your successful referrals.

In the spirit of coaching...Tom
