Oct 6-8, 2016 SQ21 Certification Class

Dana Point, California

SQ21 Certified Coach logo

The Certification Class is intended to train coaches, consultants,  spiritual directors, therapists, ministers and faith leaders, and others who are interested in teaching and/or coaching content related to spiritual inteligence using the SQ21 model.

Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) is defined by Cindy Wigglesworth "the ability to behave with wisdom and compassion, while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the situation."  It is composed of 21 skills which can be assessed and developed.

The SQ21 Spiritual Intelligence Assessment is unique in its depth and rigor.  It is a faith-neutral yet faith-friendly (and atheist-friendly) self-assessment.  Expertly created and carefully validated, this tool helps people see where they are on on the 21 skills of Spiritual Intelligence.  It is designed so that you can use it with corporate clients, private clients, or any organization or faith-based group.

Class method includes lecture and exercises.  Highly experienced SQ21 Certified Coaches will be the instructors:  Veronika Tracy-Smith; Debra delaCuesta, and possibly Steve Sphar as well.  In the prework and in the 3 days you will learn:

  • The basics about multiple intelligences... especially the 4 crucial intelligences for coaches to understand (IQ, EQ, SQ, PQ - Physical Intelligence)
  • The basics of adult development theory and integral theory and how SQ relates to them (some of this is via prework) 
  • A deep introduction to Emotional Intelligence (EQ) - done via prework, and EQ's relationship to Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) and how to help clients develop both ot them together
  • The 21 Skills of SQ
  • The history and validity of the assessment
  • How the assessment works...including how it scores and using the various faith-based glossaries to help people understand terms
  • How to help people develop in the various SQ21 skills
  • A 9-step process that Cindy uses for overall SQ development

As part of the cost of tuition ($1995 if you register by July 31st,  $2495 after that) you receive the following:

  • The DVD of Cindy Wigglesworth teaching Conscious Evolution, watch this as preparation for the class.  Includes the basics about Integral Theory and Adult Development Theory
  • The DVDs of the 2010 certification class to use as a referesher after the class.  The Emotional Intelligence portion of this set is to be watched before you attend the class.  These DVDs are super-helpful as refreshers after the class too!
  • An SQ21 assessment for yourself.  You will take this in advance and bring your report to the class with you.
  • An hour of coaching time with one of the trainers (Deb, Veronika or Steve).  This is done after the class - since you will learn how to interpret your report in the class.  The hour after class will be scheduled via phone or Skype to address more advanced or personal questions and for us to get to know you more personally)
  • A copy of her new book "SQ21:  the Twenty-One Skills for Spiritual Intelligence" (prereading for the class)
  • Access to continuing education for as long as you remain a coach in good standing.  This includes:  teleseminars, webinars and the SQ Coaches' Conference.  (fees may apply to some of these)
  • Wholesale price access to SQ21 assessment passwords (you make a profit based on your own pricing/bundling - which will be explained in class)
  • 2 free SQ21 passwords to use with friends or clients so you can gain confidence in debriefing the assessment report (most people find their confidence soars after 2 practice sessions!)
  • The ability to be listed on the Deep Change Website as a coach if you meet the criteria (includes having a minimum amount of experience with the SQ21 with good feedback from clients).  Currently available at no cost to qualified coaches.  This will help people find you who hear about SQ through Cindy or Deep Change and then want a local resource to talk with
  • A Deep Change Certified Spiritual Intelligence Coach logo to use on your emails or website
  • The ability to sign up for the next SQ Coaches's conference (Spring 2017).  This group of certified coaches are inspirational.  You will feel like you have "found your tribe!"
