The past year has taught us to adapt to change while holding on to our core values. Even as we embrace new realities and strategies, the first step of process consulting remains unchanged: listening. Listening actively and comprehensively to colleagues, clients and co-workers will always be the foundational core competency of process consulting.

Join us by earning your Certified Process Consultant credential through the PCT 101 course today! 

This concentrated, 6-week cohort is scheduled for January 12, 2022  - February 16, 2022 with each session taking place from 4:30pm-6:00pm CST on Wednesdays. The cost of the course includes one year of Society for Process Consulting membership, and you will receive an email with your membership login instructions after registering for the course.

  • Are you currently a consultant looking to grow your practice, or new to the field and want to start a consulting practice? 
  • Do you prefer to help clients transform through a meaningful process and humble inquiry instead of a set product? 
  • Are you interested in furthering your professional development as a consultant?

If your answer to any one of those questions is "yes," then PCT 101 is for you!
