The basic training program is a prerequisite for the Advanced Training.
The goal of this training program, as stated in the guidelines, is to further develop the professional skills taught in the basic training:
„A TCI group leader holding a diploma has the ability to lead groups according to / using TCI and to apply TCI comprehensively:
- He/she has developed a realistic view of him/herself with respect to his/her own personality, has recognized his/her strengths and weaknesses as a leader and learned to deal with them.
- He/she has learned to receive and offer feedback, to deal with recognition and criticism and express feelings.
- He/she has come to terms with the value system of TCI (axioms and postulates) with relation to his/her attitude, established and/or examined his/her own position and integrated humanistic values in his/her personal and professional thoughts and actions.
- He/she has learned to be selectively authentic, to practice leadership based on participation and to show esteem and tolerance for his/her own personality as well as that of others."
