Invest in Your Success

Leading Out of Drama

LOD helps harness the energy of conflict to create meaningful, positive experiences through the principles of Compassionate Accountability. By earning a certification in LOD, you’ll be able to help your clients overcome the stigma surrounding conflict, lose the negative effects of drama – and experience radical results. 

An LOD certification is obtained by attending several virtual sessions, with additional coursework required to teach the Advanced LOD curriculum. Once you receive your certification, you’ll have access to a host of benefits, including membership to the global Next Element LOD network.

Process Communication Model

PCM is an internationally-acclaimed communication model that identifies six distinct personality types in people, along with how they perceive the world, how they communicate, how they’re motivated and how they’ll behave in distress.

Taught on five continents, in more than 13 languages, by more than 3,000 PCM-certified trainers and coaches, PCM has seen global success. In fact, an international study showed participants saw a 60% improvement in personal relationships, 63% improvement in work relationships and a 62% improvement in team performance.
