Becoming a HBDI certified practitioner requires the completion of a rigorous four now three day HBDI certification workshop and completion of pre and post workshop assignments.

There is so much material covered during those four days that your brain may experience information overload. If you want to reduce your learning curve and deliver the best HBDI sessions, having a coach will be your competitive advantage.

  • Preparing for individual or group sessions to complete your HBDI certification
  • Fine tuning HBDI interpretation and debrief skills
  • Refining your HBDI presentation(s)

Each workshop participant receives:

  • 10 HBDI Profiles (for a team)
  • One HBDI Profile (your own)
  • Two HBDI Pair Profiles

  • One Herrmann 8½ x 11 Walk Around Pad
