Learning Leader

Fortune 100 Global Insurance Company

Recently, CoCreate Work led a team building Intensive for our global HR leadership team, focusing on cultural literacy, trust, collaboration, and ownership. CoCreate Work thoughtfully designed the session to address our specific needs and desired outcomes, incorporating pre-work, individual reflection, group discussions, and exercises like creating working agreements.

Their facilitation skills were exemplary, striking a balance between structure and flexibility while fostering active participation and creating a safe space for sharing – all in a multicultural environment with participants from all over the world. CoCreate Work's ability to adapt to the group dynamics and tailor content to our needs was commendable.

As a result of the experience CoCreate Work created, we were able to walk out of the room with a clear set of guiding principles/working agreements, which we now use to lead with trust and hold ourselves accountable to operating as one unit and team.

Will there be live calls during the program? Will the calls be recorded?

Yes, this is a live, virtual program. Classes will occur each week (day and time based on class time zones and availability) and participants will also have a weekly case study to complete independently and a small circle to discuss learning from the week.

What if I have to miss a class?

Our intention is to come together live each week for shared learning and collaboration. AND we understand that things come up. Participants can miss a maximum of 3 live classes. If a major life event occurs that would cause you to miss more sessions, we will work together on a plan on a case by case basis.

Will you have a community aspect?

Yes, within the cohort, participants will be formed into small groups where they will have weekly discussions on the learning and case study from that week. Cohorts are meant to create community and network, check in on shared learning, and learn from each other’s lived experience.

Who is this program for? I don’t have prior knowledge or experience of culture, is this program still for me?

This program is for those individuals who have a background or deep interest in any of the following areas: learning and development, human resources, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), organizational design/development, human centered leadership, etc. It was also built with founders and business owners in mind.

Ultimately this program will teach you the elements of creating culture in teams and organizations of all sizes. You will want to have knowledge of what culture and communication is like within a workplace - but the program is agnostic to industry or geographical location. We are excited to accept a variety of experiences into the certification and we want candidates who are committed to the pillars of the program. If you are interested, please apply!

What types of businesses is this certification for?

The program is industry agnostic. We are looking for a wide range of interests and experiences! The key requirement that we ask for is that you are committed to creating inclusive work environments.

When is the enrollment period/deadline?

- Rolling admission is open now.
- Will this certification open again?

  • We are excited for this inaugural class! If you are interested in this program we encourage you to sign up for this cohort. We will offer the program again, but those who are part of our first class will represent ambassadors of the program. We will offer the course again as cohort seats continue to be filled.
How is this certification program different from a coaching certification, MBA, or other graduate degree?

Both La’Kita and Chloe have coaching certifications, and MSW, and MBA respectively, so they know and respect the value that comes with this education. We find that coaching certification is about working with individuals to find their own answers, on its own it does not represent providing expert guidance or systems level support and recommendations.  

MBA programs center on various areas of business like finance, marketing, operations. It might touch on culture, but most programs don’t provide a deep dive into culture and organizational design. In this program you will learn the elements of designing culture to support the ever changing workforce. With that said, if a graduate degree is what you are seeking we encourage you to go for it!

Are accommodations available? Do you offer transcripts or captions for video modules?

Yes, all training, recordings, and bonus modules will have captioning and/or transcripts. We will have various breaks and quiet opportunities for reflection. If you have specific questions or accommodation requests, please email our team at

What is the refund or guarantee policy?

This is an education program and knowledge cannot be unknown once shared. Due to the nature of learning and development inside of the culture certification program, we do not offer refunds after the program starts. However, we are committed to your learning and growth as part of this program. We will do our part to ensure you have access to all tools, training, and resources to be successful in this program. We ask for your shared commitment.

How long will I have access to the materials provided?

You will have ongoing access to the tools and templates as long as you are certified with the program. You will also have access to all updates and new tools introduced within the program during your certification period. Because we want to ensure that participants stay up to date on the changing nature of the workplace we ask that you maintain certification by renewing every 3 years. Any renewal costs will be minimal and will include attendance at a short updated training.

How do I get my company to help pay for this program?

We believe requesting company support is a great way to highlight your commitment to growth and development. We even have a template for you! Email our team at

Will this help me start my business?

Potentially. This program is designed to help you grow your skills in the area of systems thinking, the ability to develop leaders, and culture creation. In the course we also cover some of the basics of consulting and touch on sharing your services. However, we do not guarantee sales or any particular financial or career outcome. With that said, there is a lot of important work to be done, and we would love to help you be a part of it!
