Training Internal Champions in MI:  “Train the Trainer”

What steps are necessary to become a strong effective MI Trainer or Instructor?

How do you envision the process of achieving these goals? What is your own story in wanting to become an MI trainer?

Becoming a member of MINT has become more challenging over the last 5 years and learning how to successfully navigate the MI world requires patience, dedication to learning the language of MI.

You may know the theory and principles of MI but how do you harness the spirit and find the balance to be an effective trainer? How do you have the confidence to teach the language of MI and create trainings that truly create impact?

This workshop is designed for those who have had at least 4 days of MI training and desire more advanced proficiency in using MI. It is an opportunity for more practice of MI exercises and feedback. 

And for organizations to be MI based, internal champions are the heroes of MI. Through this training your champions will have a comprehensive base to continue internal growth and learning.
