Both of these certificates are responses to the situation facing organizations who are working to be more adaptive. A genuine capacity to adapt comes from the implementation of Open patterns and practices. The new certificates from the OLN reflect this reality, and provide client organizations and employers with a way to identify and source coaching and consulting professionals that possess the skills needed to help create genuine and lasting change in organizations.
