Audience

The Instructor certification is aimed at trained Practitioners as well as those who will become trained Practitioners in the foreseeable future. Certification as an Instructor in Logosynthesis® entitles the holder to offer Logosynthesis seminars to laypeople. The certification process takes place at Instructor Meetings which take are held at regular intervals. The Instructor Meetings are attended by those who want to achieve Instructor certification as well as existing Instructors. Around 80 Instructors in Logosynthesis have been certified to date.

 

Content and objectives

The Instructor Meeting normally consists of three parts and is organised by the LIA:

Day 1: Instructor certification

This day allows new Practitioners to obtain the licence required to give the Introductory Seminar to Self-Coaching with Logosynthesis. Instructors who attended an Instructor certification workshop more than five years ago are also recommended to visit this seminar as the content continues to be developed over time. The content of the self-coaching seminar is presented alongside didactic and organisational elements.

Day 2: Evaluation and development

This day allows participants to exchange their experiences of the self-coaching seminar and other seminars they teach. The group discusses current didactic, marketing and organisational topics and new developments in Logosynthesis are presented. This day is compulsory for all Instructors who wish to retain their licences to present the Introductory Seminar to Self-Coaching with Logosynthesis.

Day 3: Presentation of an open topic seminar

This day involves the presentation of a new topic seminar that Instructors can offer to wider audiences with no prior knowledge of Logosynthesis. The open topic seminars are intended to engage audiences who are not primarily interested in Logosynthesis, but rather in topics such as ‘money’, ‘time’ and ‘procrastination’. Logosynthesis is the main tool used in the seminars, and participants therefore often end up expressing a wish to find out more about the method through a self-coaching seminar or coaching session.

 

Benefits

Certification as an Instructor in Logosynthesis entitles the holder to offer the Introductory Seminar Self-Coaching with Logosynthesis as well as topic seminars aimed at laypeople, i.e. participants who do not require prior training in coaching, supervision or a therapeutic field. Included in the licensing are advertising materials as well as use of the .pptx files for the Introductory Seminar and other topic seminars. Instructors may also publish their respective offerings on the LIA website.

 

The path to Instructor in Logosynthesis status
