Conversational Leadership Facilitator Certification Program

Thank you for your interest in becoming a certified Conversational Leadership facilitator!


The certification process takes approximately 6 months to complete.  If there are special considerations needed to accommodate your schedule, please  give us a call  and we'll be happy to work with you.


Learning outcomes
At the end of the Conversational Leadership Facilitator Certification Program, participants will be able to demonstrate the ability to:

  • Facilitate a gathering that incorporates the 5 Guidelines for Learning Conversations and Meeting Protocols.

  • Explain the guiding principles underneath each of the protocols that are used during the facilitation.

Program details

Phase 1 - Action Learning

  • You will attend and observe two learning sessions with our facilitators to experience first-hand the application of Conversational Leadership protocols and principles.


  • You will see and hear our facilitators demonstrate how the protocols and principles are used to inspire curiosity, inquiry and reflection with a focus on relevancy to the learner. You will also see and hear how the protocols and principles are used to surface commitments to action and steps toward implementation.


  • After observing the two sessions, you will participate in a full-day facilitator learning session to take a deeper dive into the practices and protocols.  

Phase 2 - Transfer learning into daily practice 

  • After you return to your professional setting and begin to apply the protocols and principles into your daily practice, we'll ask that you share your learnings with us over the course of approximately 3 months.


  • We'll invite you to participate in virtual meetings and coaching sessions and complete inter-session assignments designed to support your learning and development. 

Phase 3 - Demonstration of mastery

Following Phase 2, you will be invited to co-facilitate a 4-6 hour session with us to demonstrate your ability to facilitate a Conversational Leadership session that includes:

  • The 5 Guidelines for Learning Conversations

  • Jorgensen Learning Center Meeting Protocols & Practices

  • Safely Dangerous Space


A  45-minute oral exit exam must be completed by phone within 30 days of the co-facilitated session to be eligible to receive your certification.

If you do not demonstrate mastery of the concepts, you will be given specific feedback for enhancements, provided with virtual support and invited back to facilitate another session to demonstrate mastery and receive a certificate of completion.
