Becoming a SOCIAL STYLE® & Versatility Certified Instructor
Certification is designed to provide all the knowledge and skills necessary to facilitate any SOCIAL STYLE & Versatility program. Certification enables a person to teach the powerful SOCIAL STYLE Model™ and is required for instructors using TRACOM’s multi-rater profiles.
It is expected that certification candidates have previous experience facilitating developmental workshops. Instructors are traditionally certified by attending a SOCIAL STYLE program as a participant and then attending an instructor-led certification class, delivered on-site at the client location. TRACOM also offers a web-based phone certification option that can reduce the time and costs associated with our traditional on-site training and certification.

SOCIAL STYLE® Certification Resources
The SOCIAL STYLE® & Versatility Certification Guide is the foundation of every certification. Using the guide, the master facilitator will cover core concepts of SOCIAL STYLE and provide opportunities for candidates to “teach back” what they’ve learned.
The SOCIAL STYLE® & Versatility Facilitator Handbook serves as the single best source to learn about the SOCIAL STYLE Model and its ability to improve relationships as well as efficiency and effectiveness in the workplace. In the late 1950's, Dr. David Merrill developed a statistically validated selection instrument that became the gold standard for recruiting and selecting candidates in the workplace, specifically managers, senior executives, and sales professionals. SOCIAL STYLE has grown to become the world's leading Behavioral Style model, being used by thousands of organizations to improve leadership performance and sales results. This book is also available in paperback form on Amazon. Buy from Amazon.
