Develop the Skills to Powerfully Lead Workshops



The Radical Honesty Trainer's Training is for those on the path to becoming certified to effectively lead Radical Honesty Workshops. The training is an in-person, 8-Day residential workshop and is a key element in the greater Radical Honesty Training Program.

The Purpose of the Training 

The purpose of the Trainer's Training is to develop your skills (in noticing, expressing, coaching, and presentation), your clarity of intent, and your relationships with each other in order to create a breakthrough in our individual and collective abilities to teach
Radical Honesty.

It’s an opportunity for face-to-face practice with peers, an
opportunity to learn from Radical Honesty founder, Brad Blanton
and Master Trainer, Taber Shadburne and with the cooperation, support, and feedback from other Radical Honesty practitioners
also in pursuit of advanced learning and eventual certification.

Radical Honesty Attainments

On Certification


Attendance at a Trainer's Training do not guarantee certification, and certification does not generally happen after participation in one’s first Trainer’s Training.

When at a live Trainer’s Training, anyone interested in working toward certification as a Radical Honesty Trainer is invited to declare that they’d like to be on the path to become a Trainer, and would like to officially be considered a Trainer Candidate. And at a Trainer’s Training, Candidates (who have been on the path and imagine they are ready) are welcome to declare that they’d like to be certified as a Trainer. Both of these declarations will lead to a conversation and feedback session within the group of peers, and with Radical Honesty Founder, Brad Blanton, Master Trainer, Taber Shadburne, and a group of Certified Trainers.

Candidacy and certification are given on a case by case basis, based on personal attainments (completion of past events with key people, quality of contact, etc.) and attainments within the Radical Honesty Training Program, as determined by Brad Blanton, Taber Shadburne, and Certified Trainers, and are only given in-person, at live Trainer’s Trainings.
