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.

13 “like-in-person” virtual sessions with Alison Whitmire, President of Learning In Action

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. Unlimited access to recorded sessions can be accessed if you can’t attend in person. The sessions are held weekly on live Zoom-hosted calls.

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, group and partner sessions

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.

You Will Learn How to…

  • Shorten the length of time it takes to go deep, below the surface, into really substantive issues with your clients.
  • Help your clients see themselves more clearly and allow them to feel seen and recognized.
  • Give your clients the language around what they are experiencing (that may be holding them back) but can’t put it into words.
  • See the hidden patterns that are driving your client’s derailing behavior and connect your clients’ narratives with how they are relating to themselves, others, and the world.
  • Unlock your client’s potential by freeing them from their conditioned responses.
  • Take your clients through the Journey of Relational Awareness in which they learn what triggers them, how the trigger was set, the narrative beneath their trigger, the pattern the trigger generates, and how to create a new narrative and new choices that allow them to live a life of full expression.
WE-Q Curriculum

What You Can Expect

The WE-Q Certification Training is a live, highly interactive, and experiential 13-week experience presenting 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.

This is a rich, rigorous, deeply impactful program, where you will both explore your own relational and emotional patterns and discover how to coach your clients around EQ and relational awareness. Plan for both a weekly 90 minute live learning session and time outside of live sessions to engage learning triads, readings, and exercises to support your ability to effectively implement the WE-Q Profile at a skilled level.

We will take a deep dive into the following:

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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Our student-to-teacher ratio and small personalized classes are some of the features that make our WE-Q Certification Training unique. Training cohorts include anywhere from 15 to 25 trainees and we incorporate learning triads and breakout rooms to support an immersive learning experience. Live sessions are facilitated by Alison Whitmire, President of Learning In Action, and supported by Master WE-Q Practitioners who facilitate breakout sessions.

Yes! We highly encourage you to experience the WE-Q Profile first and it’s part of our enrollment process. This will give you visibility into your own internal landscape under stress. You'll receive your WE-Q Profile results as well as a 60-minute interpretation and discussion of your results with one of our Certified Master Practitioners. 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.

In times of challenge and uncertainty, we are more likely to revert to our protective patterns of thinking, wanting, or feeling that, ironically, don’t support us in dealing with the stress of the situation. And to adapt and change effectively, especially during uncertain times, we need to be aware of our default ways of being and gain a sense of different, more present choices available to us. Your ability to do just that for your clients would be simply invaluable to them. With deeper self-awareness and knowledge, you can bring your clients, they can ensure their patterns and related narratives are not blocking their ability to cope and make meaning of their lives.

Yes, each session in this course is entirely virtual, conducted via video conference on Zoom. The cohorts are intentionally kept small for optimal interaction and a personalized experience. And, you can learn in the ease, comfort, and convenience of wherever you are.

All 13 training sessions are recorded for your convenience. You’ll have unlimited access to view and listen to each recorded session, whenever and however many times you’d like.

Although we encourage attendance at all live sessions for best learning and interaction, we understand that you may have other commitments during scheduled training sessions. Each session is recorded so you’ll always be able to keep up with the class. If you are unable to attend, you’ll be asked to review the recorded session and provide your thoughts, comments, and takeaways prior to the next virtual training session.

After enrolling, you have unlimited, lifetime access to this program and all of its materials across any and all devices you own.

The program curriculum richly supports you as you develop your ability to both interpret and debrief the EQ Profile. You'll develop your skills by working with a self-selected practice client, and will practice debriefing with triad members. There is a final certification debrief evaluation at the end of the program, where a trainer will evaluate the skills you have been developing along the way. The outcome of the evaluation is communicated to you shortly after the evaluation via a debrief skills rubric, so you can see where your strengths and growth areas lie.

If you do not pass the final oral exam, you will still be eligible to receive CEU’s for completing the course. To become a Certified WE-Q Practitioner and receive your practitioner badge you will need to schedule a retake exam for an additional cost. To help you prepare for the retake exam you will receive an evaluation rubric with feedback that can help you determine your areas of weakness. You may refer to module recordings, resources and exercises before retaking the exam to help you prepare.

If you need to cancel or reschedule, contact us by email or live chat. Refunds are not available, and we’re happy to apply your paid registration fee to a comparable future training session of your choice.

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.
