Activating the Heart of Teams™ – a HeartMath® Certified Trainer Program

Creating a Culture Where Teams Can Thrive

The certification program introduces the knowledge, concepts and skill sets for building team coherence.

The Activating the Heart of Teams Certification is designed for those who work with teams or those experienced coaches, consultants, mentors and trainers who have the sensitivity to facilitate challenging interpersonal dynamics, and who want to expand their skillset and begin working with teams. This includes intact teams, newly formed teams, teams that work in person or remotely and those who are seeking new ways of working together to meet today’s challenges.

Upon certification, you will be able to provide your clients with a HeartMath skillset specially designed to help them increase connectedness, achieve greater team harmony and enhance their intuition for approaches for solving problems and making decisions. You will also be part of a robust community of trainers who are eager to share best practices.

Certification Training Process

Combines live and self-paced learning. The small group mentoring sessions and the Teach Back days are held via Zoom.

  1. Small Group Classes: Attend five small group weekly classes. The first class is two hours, followed by four, 90-minute classes with 5 other participants with a HeartMath Senior Facilitator. In this phase participants will use the Learning Guide to help draw out key elements in the program. This includes a close look at the program Trainer Notes, supportive documents and module videos to understand some of the basic science and concepts of the HeartMath System. An important aspect is learning and applying the coherence techniques in your own daily life to fully understand their application. Between the small group mentoring classes, participants are highly encouraged to meet together to discuss main learnings, applications and practice presenting the material to each other. This phase is very important in preparation for the two Teach Back days. Attendance is required.
  2. Teach Back Days: Prepare for and present two, 30-minute assigned modules to your mentoring group over two full days. Each participant and the Teach Back Facilitator will give constructive feedback after each presentation to support and deepen the learning experience. The Teach Backs offer an even deeper dive into the program material and facilitation of it, while at the same time, allowing the Facilitators to assess the ability to present the program content and practices effectively. Attendance is required.
  3. Attend a half-day wrap-up for Q & A and various topics to expand your learning.
  4. Attend a final debrief with your designated HeartMath representative.

Certification is based on successful completion of the Teach Backs and participation in the small group classes.

What Trainers are Saying

Activating the Heart of Teams Certification is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Truly Transformational Training The Activating the Heart of Teams training with the Heart Math Institute is a truly transformative experience. It allowed me to consider, experience and deepen into parts of myself that needed to be seen and explored. The teaching faculty is excellent and the pedagogy is such that allows us to learn from our experience of the course content and the different techniques we learn for ourselves and how to teach other. I come away from this training with a transformed heart and with a pocket and heart full of tools that I am truly excited to bring out into the world. I feel deeply grateful and honoured to be on this journey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Activating the Heart of Teams Certificate This was an excellent addition to " The Resiliency Advantage" training that I took five years ago. I already have two departments in my organization that want to go through the training with me. Advancing the Heart of Teams is a great way to continue to build individual coherence, while looking at ways to build team coherence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Program is the Future! I am a trainer, coach, and Executive working with top organizations to streamline workplace issues, communication, alignment, and culture. This program gave me what I needed to impact deeper change at the individual, team, and organization levels. Personally, I have already seen changes at home and in my perspectives due to this program. The Certification process and facilitator team created the space for me to explore and interpret this science immediately. I had everything I needed up front in order to study and put into practice a heart-focused life. Thank you AHT team for the wonderful experience and thank you to my fellow cohort for the ongoing inspiration!
