L.E.T. Facilitator Certification


Offer L.E.T. within your organization! Certifying your staff facilitators 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 L.E.T. Workshop, participants will learn the complete Gordon Model, get individualized attention from a highly-skilled Facilitator 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: Facilitator Workshop

This 4.5 day facilitator workshop, taught by a Master Facilitator from Gordon Training International (GTI), 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, skill practice exercises, coaching and small group discussions. Participants will practice teach and receive verbal and written feedback from the Master Facilitator and the Co-Facilitator. The entire workshop is devoted to strengthening Facilitator Candidates’ effective use of the L.E.T. skills as well as their ability to model them.  Tuition includes an L.E.T. Facilitator Kit. Candidates are responsible for their own expenses. Contact us for pricing.

Important notice:  Because we believe in protecting all participants in our workshops as well as our Master Trainer from possible exposure to the COVID-19 virus, all participants must provide reasonable proof that they have been fully vaccinated prior to their attendance at one of our workshops. Gordon Training International (GTI) adheres to all CDC guidelines and the State of California mandates. The venue of the workshop may also have their own COVID 19 requirements. Currently the workshop venue has a mask mandate. Although it seems likely that the CDC and State of California guidelines will be updated many times before the scheduled workshops, it seems clear that proof of vaccinations will remain a central requirement going forward. Once registered, each participant must sign and return a written waiver releasing GTI from liability regarding exposure to the COVID-19 virus while at the workshop prior to your arrival.

2022 L.E.T. Facilitator Workshop Calendar

Date Location
TBD Solana Beach, CA (w/Steve Crandall & Michelle Adams)

Please email us for more information and/or to receive an application. We can also send a Master Facilitator to you for a private facilitator  workshop for four or more candidates. Contact us for more information at (800) 628-1197, ext. 308 or e-mail workplace@gordontraining.com

Phase III: Co-Teach Workshop

Facilitator Candidates organize and schedule an L.E.T. Workshop for 5-20 participants. A Master Facilitator will coach, supervise and support the new facilitator to help them fine-tune their L.E.T. facilitation skills.

Phase IV: Qualifying Workshop

Facilitator Candidates 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 Facilitator’s Evaluation, they then receive full certification.

Once certified, Facilitators may then purchase a kit for our one-day L.E.T. Refresher Workshop and offer the program to L.E.T. Graduates, without additional training.


What Do L.E.T. Clients Say?

“Working for one of the largest organizations in the country and being a part of one of the most diverse teams imaginable, L.E.T. has enabled me to build effective teams and deliver truly outstanding results!  Without being able to communicate effectively and listen to feedback, growth is hindered, productivity is hampered, relationships suffer, and people generally won’t give more than the minimum expectation.  L.E.T. has truly been able to help me see risk where it exists and has given me tools to foster positive working relationships. My organization is a better place because of L.E.T. and the relationships it has helped me nurture and grow!” – Michael S., Senior Manager, Delivery Operations, Amazon Fulfillment

“Having the opportunity to be certified as an Leader Effectiveness Training facilitator has given me the opportunity to create transformational learning experiences for many people. Learners have provided feedback that they left my sessions feeling equipped with important relationship skills that not only will help them succeed in their careers, but that transcend the workplace and help them to grow as a person. I was very fortunate to have been mentored master facilitator Bill Stinnett, and VP Michelle Adams. Through this experience, I have learned new skills (particularly Active Listening), that have improved my facilitation beyond Leader Effectiveness Training. My relationship with Gordon Training International has been nothing short of incredible. I feel supported, and like I have joined a broad Learning and Development community. Thank you GTI!” Kayla C., Talent Development Consultant, EPCOR

“No matter your role, the size of your organization, or your industry, L.E.T. is a must for anyone looking to improve interpersonal relationships and help solve people problems. Our trainer, Steve, was incredible! He was patient when he needed to be and pushed us all to examine the material and understand problem ownership. Practicing the skills was essential and the personal feedback we received helped us elevate our ability so that by the end of our session, we were all so confident and enthusiastic! L.E.T is essential training delivered by wonderfully knowledgeable and passionate people. Thank you for teaching me life-long skills that I can use every single day!” BJ, Learning and Development, Sales, XPO Logistics

“As an aspiring L.E.T. facilitator, I trained under one of GTI’s L.E.T. Yodas and discovered my inner L.E.T. Jedi. Humor aside, Bill [Master Facilitator] is an amazing teacher and the support materials provided by Gordon Training International makes it only possible for the committed student to succeed as an accomplished L.E.T. trainer. I feel immensely privileged to be affiliated with Gordon Training International and am grateful to their expertise that prepared me to further advance the principles of Tom Gordon’s work into the healthcare business sector. – Carol P., PRN Consulting Inc., Founder and President

“Leader Effectiveness Training has provided me with the gift of better communication and greatly improved conflict resolution skills which has been transformational in my relationships, both at work and at home. As a trainer, I get excited when it comes time to share LET with others. There is nothing more gratifying than hearing from students after my workshops how L.E.T. has positively impacted them and made them better leaders, and more importantly better human beings. If L.E.T. has not taught me anything else, I have learned that effective leadership starts with listening.” – Jeff H., Initiatives Program Manager, DoD

“Phenomenal! Steve [Master Facilitator] is a true model of L.E.T.  The workshop was fantastic.  The flow, building on each segment daily was very beneficial, explanation of material, practice teaching and the personal coaching—amazing.  Thank you for your passion and dedication to this process.  You are truly making this world a better place.” – Smanthia J., HR Business Partner, amazon.com (Fulfillment Center)

“Thank you so much for this amazing experience.  I am so lucky to have been at the L.E.T. Train-the-Trainer Workshop.  I feel that I have been given an amazing opportunity and I want to share it with all that I can.  The instructor and modeling that was observed helped me so much.  Thank you—I feel like I have more friends than I came with.”  Angela C., VP, Corporate Development, KAW Services

“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

“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
