What went into the development of this certification? -- Decades of facilitation experience, game theory and design, as well as hundred of interviews with other practitioners who work with leaders and teams.

Do you offer discounts or referrals? -- Indeed, both! Certified members receive a kickback for each referral that completes the training. We also encourage prospective cohort participants to bring another colleague by offering a 10% discount to both people. Contact us to confirm your attendance.
