By becoming an Ekman associate you will have access to the same methodology and approaches currently being adopted by some of the leading agencies and businesses around the world.
As an Ekman Associate, your profile will feature on our website so everyone will know you are Ekman Approved.
Once approved, you will be equipped with the latest and best training tools and materials to enable you to use and share the core of this cutting-edge behavioral science, using a range of Paul Ekman approved content.
All Associates will have access to highly responsive customer support from PEI where you can have your questions answered by our expert service team.
You will also have the opportunity to share and learn best practices with a growing Associate community.
The Ekman Associate Program is designed for professionals who see the value of adopting Emotional Skills and Credibility Analysis based competencies within the professional workplace and would like to offer the best and most scientifically supported techniques and methodologies to their customers by adopting the Ekman approved content and training methods.
Most Ekman Associates tend to be in one of the following professions: Consultants, Coaches, Trainers, HR Managers, Mentors, and L&D Managers who want to secure approval to add Paul Ekman Approved core content into their wider training/delivery initiatives. Be that leadership, team development, negotiation, sales, and recruitment, for example.
While the Associate Program will help you develop the skills to handle the core Ekman content, we do ask that those applying for the Associate program already have some experience as a trainer, facilitator, or speaker so you are better prepared to hit the ground running once you have completed the program.
We need to protect you, your clients and the Paul Ekman brand, so if you don’t meet the standards (content knowledge and presentation skills) during the course a personal coach from PEI will agree on a Personal Development Plan with you to support you until you are ready.
