Designing Your Life Facilitator Certification Workshop

Sign up here to be invited to submit a proposal when our next training is scheduled 

The Designing Your Life Facilitator Certification Program has been specifically created and designed for experienced consultants, coaches who provide workshops, and workshop business owners who are interested in adding Designing Your Life Workshops to their current portfolio of offerings. Our goal is to make sure that high-quality instruction is available to people and companies who want to apply the life design process and mindsets to increase engagement and fulfillment at work and in life. We are seeking to develop and empower a world-wide network of highly qualified DYL facilitators to meet the demand for high quality workshops in a variety of locations.

The workshop is a three day immersive training experience, focused on facilitation of the DYL content.  Participants will practice facilitating the DYL modules offered in the One Day Intensive and One and Half Day Workshop, learn about the underlying rationale behind each module, and deepen their understanding through discussion and feedback. We will also share strategies for building customized programs – defining required and optional modules, and helping participants learn how to configure modules into a solution that will meet your client’s needs.

The workshop will be offered only two times a year at a cost of $5,000, which includes your first year’s certification. Annual re-certification will be required and is expected to cost $1,500. Re-certification will involve proof of quality delivery the previous year and training on new modules and content.

**Note: The Facilitator Certification does not include a Coaching Certification, which has different requirements.
