Virtual Follow Up Sessions

During the program, you will engage in:

The WE-Q Profile Experience

Receive your WE-Q 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 WE-Q Profile prior to training, you will begin to explore your own default patterns under stress, which is your first step in understanding the WE-Q 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 WE-Q 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 WE-Q Profile results, and the interpretation of the WE-Q Profile.

6 “like-in-person” live sessions

Following our three days of in-depth, collaborative learning, we will have five 90-minute virtual video sessions and a graduation session 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 WE-Q 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.

The WE-Q Certification Training will immediately add value to your practice.

“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
WE-Q Curriculum

What You Can Expect

The WE-Q Certification Training is a blended learning experience combined with an in-person, highly interactive three-day experience followed by “like in-person” live, online sessions. 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.


Orientation is the initial point of connection for the cohort: you'll connect with your certification facilitators, other trainees, and essential program details that you'll need in order to navigate the program with ease and confidence.

Day 1

On day one, we’ll learn about The Journey of Becoming and Belonging: how our brains are shaped, how patterns and narratives form, and how the WE-Q Profile reflects those patterns. We’ll take a deep dive into triggers and habituated patterns.

Day 2

On day two, you’ll learn how the WE-Q 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 WE-Q Profile. You’ll be introduced to all of the dimensions of the WE-Q Profile and how to divine your client’s implicit Ladder of Inference as revealed by the WE-Q Profile.

Day 3

On day three, we will cover The Journey of Relational Awareness where you will understand the hero’s journey, the role of emotions, and the language of our internal experience through the lens of the WE-Q Profile’s dimensions. We will explore relationship strategies, relational and boundary elements, and nuances of the WE-Q Profile.

5 Virtual Sessions

In addition to an immersive in-person experience, you’ll join us for five follow-up virtual sessions scheduled one week apart. These are intended to support your application of the WE-Q Profile with hands-on practice, reflections, client interpretations, and 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 each session, 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:

40 ICF CCEs (25 CC and 15 RD).

A certification to facilitate the WE-Q 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, WE-Q Certification badge, and a social media kit for you to share your expertise and accomplishment!

An invitation to the exclusive Facebook Group for WE-Q Practitioners and to get listed on our WE-Q Practitioner Network on the Learning in Action website.

Student Testimonials

What People Are Saying About
EQ Certification Training

Yarrow Durbin

“The skills and knowledge I acquired from the Learning in Action training allows me to talk about very profound things with my clients in a professional work context. It allows them to be vulnerable and see themselves more clearly. So much so, that I’ve heard from them after sessions say “I really feel like I am bringing all of myself to work now.”

I’ve had clients whom were in some rough spots, internally and professionally, leave happy and smiling from a session because they felt seen and recognized. And I am able to do this through my experiences with Learning in Action training.”

Carla Greenan

“Learning in Action’s training really does unlock the ability to dive in deeply with a client early in the coaching process.

It gives both coach and client an understanding and a language for the complex, inner landscape within all of us.”

Bruce Leamon

“I use my Learning in Action training with virtually every single one of my clients. The training and techniques I received are like a swiss army knife, providing me with a variety of useful tools that allow me to perform my work with clients faster and easier and with more depth.

The training has allowed me to have deeper, more comprehensive, and more robust conversations with clients that move them forward faster.”
