Certification Program for Coaches helps you harnass the full power of Perceptual Styles


Perceptual Style Theory Certification for Coaches

Are you ready to harness the full power of Perceptual Style Theory™ for your own coaching programs?

Perceptual Style Theory is an incredibly robust tool to simply and quickly connect with your clients. It provides you with the language and the insights to tailor your communications and programs to fit each of your clients like their very own glove. 

If you are fascinated with the psychology of human behavior - nature vs. nurture, motivation, natural strengths, proven behavior development techniques, and more - then this is the Coaching Certification Program for you!

You will learn:

  • The science behind the theory and the assessments.

  • How to interpret assessment results and make them real for your client in the context of your own programs.

  • Why Perceptual Style differs from other popular personality style tools and how that difference means greater practical application.

  • Techniques to capitalize on that practical application to achieve dramatic results in your own coaching programs!

  • The opportunities and challenges you will encounter with clients of each Perceptual style.

  • How to maximize your connection with each and every client.

  • How to motivate your clients and successfully guide them through the amazing transformation your programs offer.

We offer two training programs and certification levels:

Both allow individuals to purchase and use the Perceptual Style and Recognized Strengths Profile assessments for individual and group training and coaching activities.

The Perceptual Style™ Guide Program is ideal for individuals who want to incorporate the concepts and tools of Perceptual Style™ Theory into their own coaching programs or management practices.   The program consists of ten modules focused on Perceptual Style Theory™, in-depth reviews of the six Perceptual Styles, a detailed review of Perceptual Style Interactions, and assessment results delivery tips and techniques for the Perceptual Style Assessment.

The Perceptual Style Guide Training Program is scheduled over 10 calendar weeks with 8 module sessions and 2 activity sessions.  Tuition for the program is $897.

Perceptual Style™ Guides (PS Guides) demonstrate a high level of knowledge of the concepts and practical applications of Perceptual Style Theory, individual Perceptual Styles, and Preferences for Interaction.

The certification period for a PS Guide is two years.  During that time, the PS Guide is expected to continue their Perceptual Style education by completing at least five continuing education credits required for re-certification.

The Perceptual Style™ Coach Program is ideal for individuals who want to master advanced concepts of Perceptual Style Theory™, strengths-based coaching, and skill development.

The Perceptual Style Guide Program is a prerequisite for participation in the Perceptual Style Coach Program. One year of practical experience using Perceptual Style prior to participation in the Perceptual Style Coach Program is also encouraged.

The program consists of ten modules focused on advanced applications of Perceptual Style Theory™, an in-depth review of Preferences for Interaction, Natural Action Capacities, and Recognized Strengths.  Also includes Perceptual Style and Recognized Strengths Profile assessment construction and results interpretation, creating skill development plans,  and strengths-based coaching tips and techniques.

The Perceptual Style Coach Training Program is scheduled over 10 calendar weeks with 7 module sessions and 3 activity sessions.  Tuition for the program is $1,197.

PS Coaches demonstrate excellent knowledge, competence, and skill in the use of the Perceptual Style tools for personal development, career growth, communication, teamwork, and leadership.

The initial certification period for a PS Coach is three years.  During that time, the PS Coach is expected to continue their Perceptual Style education by completing a minimum of 10 continuing education credits for re-certification.

Continuing education credits are available in various activities, including online training, workshops, and mastermind group participation.

Allison Rapp explains how she has used the Perceptual Styles Assessments to grow her coaching practice

"Before I started using Perceptual Style assessments with my coaching clients, it took too long to figure out why certain things I recommended just didn't work for them. Sometimes, it was like pulling hen's teeth, because I just couldn't even get them to try things I knew would make a huge difference. Now that my clients start with the assessments, I have the information I need to tailor my recommendations so that they'll not only be accepted, but extremely effective!

"The PSA and RSP are so accurate that my clients think I've read their minds! They're really grateful to know that I'm not going to waste their time with suggestions that won't work 'for them' and I feel more confident, knowing that what I suggest is right for them. If you need faster results with your clients, I suggest that you find out more about Perceptual Styles Coaching. It gives you the information and tools to make your coaching brilliance obvious to your clients from the get-go!
