Making good decisions — learning the craft

Only certified KAIROS coaches are authorized to analyze and guide other individuals through their profiles. Prior experience in training, consulting or coaching is required in order to become qualified.

The certification process consists of three parts:

1. Prior to the certification workshop, you test the KAIROS Profile on yourself. This takes place online via our webpage. Shortly afterwards you will receive your evaluation graphic via email, as well as a handout with preliminary information.
A telephone evaluation follows.

2. The two-day certification workshop provides an intensive introduction to the professional use of the profile. It can also be conducted for self-organized groups of colleagues, for a minimum of eight registrants.

3. The certification is obtained after three supervised profile meetings and a written protocol within four months. You will then receive access to the webpage and official authorization to use the tool responsibly.
