During the program, you will engage in:

The EQ Profile Experience

Receive your EQ Profile results and a 60-minute interpretation of your results with one of our Certified Master Practitioners for visibility into your own internal landscape under stress. By taking the EQ Profile prior to training, you will begin to explore your own default patterns under stress, which is your first step in understanding the EQ Profile in its entirety.

3 in-person, face-to-face sessions

These sessions are the central hub of your training, where you can be physically present with Alison, Master EQ Practitioners, and your peers for learning and connection. During the first three days of in-person training, we immerse you in the language of the internal experience, the understanding of your own EQ Profile results, and the interpretation of the EQ Profile.

5 “like-in-person” live sessions

Following our three days of in-depth, collaborative learning, we will have five 90-minute virtual video sessions to solidify your certification. These calls are designed to help you develop and refine your understanding of the internal world of your clients and how you can better understand it using the EQ Profile. These sessions will support you as you discover and use the Profile with a practice client and complete steps toward certification.

On-Demand video, resources, and reflection exercises

An in-depth, cutting-edge curriculum designed and taught by Alison Whitmire accessible in the learning portal to learn and reflect on your own time.

Individual and collaborative learning

Learning partners and triads deepen your learning, self-awareness, and growth areas, and provide opportunities to connect with your peers for feedback and support.

“It helps identify the client’s issue immediately so both of us can get to work”

”I love working with the EQ Profile for several reasons. It’s efficient and effective in building the client relationship because it helps identify the client’s issue immediately so both of us can get to work. It’s accurate and business-oriented. It does not label people, but shows their patterns of behavior under stress, which is the first step in becoming critically aware of one’s own emotional safety. It creates a learning pathway for the client and me.”

- Anthony Perez, Return on Learning Coaching
EQ Curriculum

What You Can Expect

The EQ Certification Training is an in-person, highly interactive, and experiential three-day experience. Our trainers facilitate a cutting-edge curriculum designed to introduce you to a unique niche of coaching that will support you in securing more coaching engagements requiring deep relational and emotional intelligence expertise.

Session one through twelve will be a deep dive into the following:

Day 1

The Journey of Becoming and Belonging: how our brains are shaped, how patterns and narratives form, and how the EQ Profile reflects those patterns.

Day 2

Triggers and habituated patterns, how the EQ Profile captures our triggered responses, and how to interpret patterns, which is understanding the pattern of thinking, feeling, wanting, and believing that is reflected in your client’s EQ Profile.

Day 3

The Journey of Relational Awareness to understand the hero’s journey, the role of emotions, and the language of our internal experience.

Virtual Sessions 5 - 12

An introduction and guided journey through all of the dimensions of the EQ Profile and how to divine your client’s implicit Ladder of Inference as revealed by the EQ Profile. You’ll also have hands-on practice, reflections, client interpretations, and a test drive with a client to support you in the implementation of the EQ Profile in your work with clients. We prepare you to present it to clients and integrate it into your current offerings.


A special graduation session with all the resources you need to deepen your coaching!

Throughout the twelve sessions, you’ll engage in group and self-paced explorations, and personalized experiences that allow you to build relationships through collaborative learning.

You'll Also Receive:

49 ICF CCEs (28 Resource Development and 21 Core Competencies).

A certification to facilitate the EQ Profile, a global tool that’s been utilized by professionals to define and create a deep understanding of what they and their clients are experiencing internally.

A certificate of completion, EQ Certification badge, and a social media kit for you to share your expertise and accomplishment!

About Learning In Action

Learning in Action is committed to healing the divide within and between people. Healing the divide within and between is the work that connects the world. Healing our dividedness from our essence will heal the dividedness between us. We dream of a world in which when one of us hurts, we all feel it. And we run to the aid of the other just as we would to our own. We envision a world in which there is a realization that we are separate and connected and ONE.

We do this work by providing coaches, consultants, OD professionals, and other change agents with the tools and resources to capture what goes on inside each of us in an interpersonal conflict.

We believe we don’t have to live out the “default settings” created by those in our past when we had no choice of our own. We can live a life of conscious choice supported by new awareness.
