Become a leader in the culture conversation.

CultureTalk Certification will ground you in an effective, approachable system that allows you to uncover the “unwritten rules of engagement” of any organization and the underlying passions of an individual. You’ll be able to create clear action plans that support strategic initiatives and personal growth.

CultureTalk is easy to learn and remember and powerful to teach and apply.
Certification provides all the tools you’ll need.

CultureTalk Certification can help you:

  • Learn the essential information you need to understand and apply a CultureTalk assessment
  • Learn a human framework that evaluates and connects an organization and the individuals that work there
  • Gain a deeper understanding of Archetypes and organizational culture, and how they influence business success
  • Align universal stories with personal growth
  • Expand your business offerings and profitability with CultureTalk surveys, workshops, and consulting opportunities
  • Produce effective results for your clients quickly
  • Enrich yourself and enhance your credentials
  • Join a professional community of peers that have a vision for impacting positive change

Who Should Attend?

The CultureTalk Certification community is made up of coaches, consultants, HR professionals, agency leaders and more. But, what sets them apart is a knowing that a simpler, more objective approach combined with shared vulnerability makes them effective and successful.

Working with teens or young adults?

CultureTalk is offering two Impact Award Scholarships in 2019 – one to each in-person Certification class (Denver, CO and Saratoga Springs, NY). If your work involves helping younger generations develop self-awareness and emotional intelligence, and guiding them on a path to intentional choices about their lives and careers, you are eligible to apply for our Impact Award Scholarship. We will announce the award  winners two weeks before each class session.

What to Expect

Our Certification sessions are intimate experiences where your understanding and immediate applications are the highest priority. With that in mind, we keep the sessions small to make sure you get to know everyone in the room and we can build a positive environment for learning.

The two-and-a-half days are broken into a series of presentations, interactive lessons, and live-application activities. By the end of the program, you will have the confidence to lead an engagement that guided by Archetypal understanding.

What you’ll learn:

The certification program is a two-and-a-half day immersive, interactive retreat where you will:

  • Learn how Archetypal behaviors impact individual and organizational effectiveness
  • Practice interpreting the results of CultureTalk surveys
  • Learn how to apply the results to help your clients evolve personally and professionally, create culture shift, engage teams, recruit and retain staff and build authentic brands and communications

What you can do once you’re certified:

  • Use the CultureTalk surveys with your clients
  • Add your logo to surveys and reports
  • Access a dedicated CultureTalk contact
  • Display an electronic certification badge
  • Create a listing on the Certified Partner Page
