The Certification Process

What to Expect at Certification

You will find that every day of the certification is packed with great experiences. The atmosphere will be casual and intimate. Dress code is business-casual, make sure you are comfortable. Your fellow participants will be supportive and instructive. It is a very collaborative experience. Your facilitator will guide the learning process with expert skill and you will find yourself taking copious notes. Be prepared for a rich and engaging three days. Don't be surprised if you develop lasting and valuable connections with your group.


Lunch and snacks will be provided throughout the day. A group dinner (optional) will be hosted by your facilitator(s) soon after Day 2 concludes. Please contact Michelle Hebler with any dietary restrictions prior to the session so appropriate arrangements can be made. 


The logistical information for your specific certification will be emailed to you as soon as it becomes available. Please be on the lookout and make sure @theleadershipcircle.com is added to your address book.
