Learning In Action’s

EQ Certification Training

Go deeper and do more transformative work with your clients in a fraction of the time!

Are you interested in going deeper faster with clients and helping them break through in weeks instead of months?

Have you been wishing that you could reveal to your clients the unconscious patterns that are blocking them from living in alignment or achieving what they want for themselves and their lives?

Do you feel like, despite your best intentions, getting in touch with the hidden part of your client has been just out of reach?

Does it seem like, no matter HOW many sessions you have with a client, the motivations you examine, or the action plans you create, the work still isn’t breaking beneath the surface?

Do you find yourself doubting how much you're truly able to help them in the time you have?

You’re not alone.

Not being able to quickly get beneath the defended surface of your clients’ doesn’t mean you aren’t amazing at what you do.

The truth is, going deep and doing transformative work in the time you have with clients, can be challenging nearly impossible without specific training and tools.

That’s why we want to invite you to our EQ Certification training that will significantly impact the way you connect and dive deep with your clients.

Instead of struggling to find ways to help your clients see how they are getting in their own way, you can develop the ability to help them bust through the internal obstacles that are keeping them stuck in their patterns and accelerate their progress towards life-giving relationships, aligned purpose, and reaching their goals and dreams.

An Invitation To…

  • Coaches
  • Consultants

“I would go through this certification 10x over in a heartbeat…

I am humbled and honored to have been able to learn from Alison and her team. The EQ Profile completely changed my life 4 years ago and continues to do so.

To be able to learn the thought and science behind the tool and the debrief process with clients is an incredible opportunity for anyone to be able to experience. Thank you again LIA for everything!”

-Tiffany Mast, Senior Organizational Change Consultant

Perhaps the single most critical aspect of our client’s success at work, their health, and well-being at home is their relationships.

And certainly, their most important relationship is the one they have with themselves.

But how do we come to understand this most crucial aspect of our client’s lives? How do we learn what triggers our clients and derails with their relationships? How do we come to understand something so hidden and opaque, yet so vitally important for our clients’ lives, especially when they can’t tell us?

That’s why we created the EQ Profile and EQ Certification Training.


EQ and Relational Intelligence

As coaches, we have a variety of tools to help our clients see their behavior and impact on others more clearly. But how do we hold up the mirror to our client’s internal experience, especially when it’s largely outside of their own awareness?

How do we help our clients see the common denominator of what’s not working in their lives, when they can’t see it, don’t want to see it, and don’t have a language for it?

The EQ Profile was designed to do just that! The EQ Profile captures what goes on inside of each of us in an interpersonal conflict. It captures our conditioned internal responses that inform and motivate our behavior. It reveals the patterns that drive our actions in ways that feel “right” to us at the moment and turn out to be destructive for us over time.


We created the EQ Profile to reveal what we don’t know and can’t see about ourselves.

Because when we are aware of our habituated patterns, we can bring conscious choice to them. We can change those patterns and our relationships and in doing so, our lives. We don’t have to live out our “default settings”, our conditioned responses shaped by our past. We can live a life of conscious choice supported by new awareness generated by the EQ Profile.

Leverage the impact of your coaching by going deeper faster with the EQ Profile, the only assessment that doesn't rely on self-reporting.

During training, we give you best practices for integrating the EQ Profile and the Journey of Relational Awareness into your one-on-one coaching or making it a part of your work with teams.

“The course was so much more than expected…

Alison and her team at Learning in Action did an amazing job. Excellent instruction with lots of case studies and experience. You will be surprised at the depth and breadth of the EQ Profile and the insights it brings.”

- Julie Kothlow, Strategic Business Advisor

What Makes EQ Certification Training Different?

  • Low Student-to-Teacher Ratio

    Our student-to-teacher ratio and small personalized classes are two of the features that make our EQ 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.

  • We’re With You Every Step of The Way

    Our team is here to support you from day one. Through email, phone, and chat support, we’re here to provide you personalized assistance and dedicated instruction to ensure your experience is rewarding.

  • A Rich Learning Environment

    EQ certification training cohorts consist of Certified Practitioners that are experienced with the EQ Profile and are returning for a refresher, new trainees getting to know the EQ Profile and Master Certified Practitioners who have extensive experience in EQ Profile interpretations. This spectrum of experience creates a rich learning environment for all trainees.

  • Hands-on Guidance Using the EQ Profile

    We all know the saying: practice, practice, practice. And neuroscience proves this is true. For this reason, hands-on and guided practice with the EQ Profile is incorporated heavily into this program. You will receive a free EQ Profile and we will guide you through facilitating it with a client.

  • A Balance of Interactive and Engaging Experiences

    Using a strategic combination of live sessions, Q&A, interactive exercises, reflection, and breakout rooms, you’ll be transported into a meaningful and connected experience that will continue with you long after our 12-week journey.
