Stronger thinking practices can transform you, your team, and your work life.
The criteria to earn a Professional Development Arena Certificate are rigorous because thinking is rigorous work. The Arena Certificates are designed for people and teams who are ready to MAKE a difference! If you have tried other Labs, and find yourself excited and eager to fully immerse yourself in transforming your thinking practices, Arena Certificates are your next step.
Arena certificates can be completed in approximately 75-100 hours.
The Arena Certificates provide a comprehensive professional development program for people, teams and organizations through our innovative approach to experiential and social learning. Individuals strengthen their thinking and build confidence. Trust in team relationships builds. Organizations benefit from valuable new insights and knowledge capital created in the Labs.
We also offer the Arenas without certificates at a lower cost. These courses focus exclusively on the Labs. If time is tight, the Arenas are a great option.
