Welcome to Paterson Training

Seeing people and teams make their greatest contribution is what the work of a Guide is all about

We’re delighted you’re here

Our training and certification pathway is designed to help you discover your unique creative purpose, equip you with the Paterson Process, and then release you to guide people and teams to clarity, focus, and possibility. Your impact really matters, and inspires us each and every day. We’re grateful for your heart and intention to make your greatest contribution, and to guide others to do that too.

Over the last 15 years, our training and certification pathway has equipped hundreds of Guides with the Paterson Process. These Guides have been released to guide organizations to growth and lasting success with StratOp; and to guide individuals to purpose and impact with LifePlan. There’s nothing quite like seeing someone gain the clarity and focus they’ve been longing for; or seeing a team’s eyes collectively open to all of the possibility in front of them.

We’re excited to learn more about you

Maybe you’ve encountered the Paterson process first-hand, and you’ve felt the undeniable pull to do this work with others. Or perhaps someone in your life has called out how you’re a “Guide”, and would be excellent in serving others with these processes. However you got here today, we’re honored by the prospect of coming alongside. Perhaps something has awakened within you — a curiosity about what it means to help others excavate truth, celebrate unique discovery, and paint a picture of what could be. Perhaps there are individuals and organizations within your spheres of influence, longing for your talents to be maximized and for your heart to fully engaged as you serve them. As you consider whether this work aligns with your purpose, we invite you to explore what it means to be a Paterson Guide. If this is where your purpose comes alive, we can’t wait to get started.

Having now trained over 600 people through the years, we’ve seen our Guides go to different levels of depth, with a growing number having committed their lives to keeping and cultivating the legacy of Tom Paterson through the ongoing application of his work. Served by these Guides, clients have experienced new levels of clarity and breakthrough, freeing them to make their greatest contribution.

The vision ahead

We know that if we do this work well, individually and collectively, we will find our greatest joy in observing and seeing others surrender to, and embrace, their uniquely created reason for breathing. Together, we will continue creating a portfolio of contribution, filled with stories, memories, and sub-plots that turned out to be instrumental in reconciling marriages, restoring families, turning organizations towards healthy investments in people and culture, and strengthening the hearts of leaders.

The Paterson training path is designed to encourage you to discover your unique giftedness along the way, and decipher your sense of calling towards this work. If it aligns with who you are, and the contribution you feel called to make, we would be excited and honored to come alongside. 

The pathway to becoming a Guide doesn’t begin with a lengthy application. Rather, we invite you to take part in a relational journey of self-discovery to determine if this work is right for you; we begin with you being guided through your own LifePlan.
