L.E.T. Trainer Certification

Certifying one or more of your staff trainers to teach L.E.T. enables your organization to have the most cost efficient, self-propagating means for training a large number of leaders and managers. Here are the phases for certification:

Phase I: L.E.T. Workshop

In the three-day (21-hour) L.E.T. Workshop, participants will learn the complete Gordon Model, get individualized attention from a highly-skilled trainer, lectures, will have plenty of opportunities for discussions and more importantly-the opportunity to use real-life situations participants may be experiencing during role-plays. Click here to view the L.E.T. Workshop calendar.

Phase II: Train-the-Trainer Workshop

This five-day Train-the-Trainer Workshop, taught by a GTI Master Trainer begins with an in-depth review of the L.E.T. skills then segues into both didactic and experiential teaching methods, including lectures, modeling, class discussion, role playing, skill practice, coaching and small group discussions. Participants will practice teach and receive feedback from the Master Trainer and the other participants. The entire Workshop is devoted to strengthening participants’ effective use of the L.E.T. skills as well as their ability to model them.

Please see the calendar below for the next L.E.T. Train-the-Trainer Workshop.

Phase III: Co-Teach Workshop

New Trainers organize and schedule an L.E.T. Workshop for 5-20 participants. A Master Trainer will coach, supervise and support the new Trainer(s) to help them fine-tune their L.E.T. facilitation skills.

Phase IV: Qualifying Workshop

Trainers organize, schedule and teach their first solo L.E.T. Workshop, then submit participants’ evaluations to GTI. Based on the results of these evaluations and the Master Trainer’s Evaluation, they then receive full certification. Once certified, Trainers may purchase Trainer Kits for the following workplace programs and offer them-without additional training:

For Lower-Level Managers and Supervisors

Conflict Resolution Workshop (CRW)

For Sales Professionals

Synergistic Selling


What Do Trainers Say?

“I can truly say it was the best ‘train-the-trainer’ program that I have ever attended.  I enjoyed the ‘hands-on’ training experience, the small group intimacy and the warm, encouraging atmosphere.  I felt I grew as a trainer and as a person.  I have never felt that way about any other ‘train-the-trainer’ program.  I feel as though I am now part of an L.E.T. ‘family’.” - Terry T., Training Specialist, U.S. Court So. District of Texas

“An amazing experience!  While learning the difference between a teacher and a trainer, I discovered that I can DO this!  And I love it!  I appreciate becoming good at something that will truly benefit others personally and professionally.  I could not effectively train others in L.E.T. without this eye-opener.” - Eric H., Independent L.E.T. Trainer, Eric Hauber Enterprises

“The L.E.T. Train-the-Trainer Workshop effectively combines theory and real-time practice facilitation, which enabled me to learn and use effective communication in a highly energized and constructive feedback setting over the four-day curriculum. In my current commitment in Operational Excellence, the L.E.T. skills are invaluable as I work with individuals and teams to navigate continuous improvement and change, which most times requires extensive use of these skills (Active Listening, I-Messages, Shifting Gears, and conflict resolution). Our culture is built on effective communication and L.E.T. is core to our foundation and success as an Enterprise.” - Frank T., Divisional OPEX Champion, W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc.

“It’s clear from the first day that developing a passion for L.E.T. principles and a desire to share it with others is the training’s primary goal.  You’ll learn the basics of L.E.T., presentation methods and receive specific feedback on your practice teaching but the goal is to instill a passion for L.E.T.  I couldn’t wait to facilitate my first L.E.T. class!” - Gene S., Vice President, HR, Armtec Defense Group

“The L.E.T. Train-the-Trainer was one of the best workshops I have ever taken–and I have taken ‘a few’.” - Stan P., HRD, Vale Inco

“Outstanding! The most important lesson I learned was how to be a role model for L.E.T.! I learned so much in this workshop it is hard for me to describe in words how grateful I feel to you (GTI). Thank you for the gift of L.E.T.!” - Erin K., HR Exec, Esterline Korry

“One of the most valuable, hands-on experiences I have had in years, both professionally and personally.” - Jean D., Group T&D, Amicorp

“When I attended the L.E.T. certification seminar, I felt energized by the experience. It is a wonderful opportunity to challenge your delivery skills and strengthen your understanding of the L.E.T. concepts. You will be prepared to deliver with clarity and answer even difficult questions with composure.” - Linda Z., Senior Trng. & Dev. Mgr., Medtronic
