Cultural Transformation Tools® (CTT)

Full Practitioner Certification Program

Registration for the program is now closed.

Let’s — Talk is honoured to bring in Romania the first Cultural Transformation Tools® (CTT) Full Practitioner Certification Program, created by the Barret Values Centre. The Cultural Transformation Tools are used world-wide by corporations, NGOs, government, municipal agencies, communities, schools and nations. By bringing them in Romania, we hope to establish a local CTT community to accelerate the quality of conversations within Romanian organisations.

The uniqueness of the Cultural Transformation Tools is that they make the invisible, visible. They allow you to measure and map the intangibles—the underlying causal factors that promote or inhibit performance. This is because CTT’s focus on values—the motivators that reflect our needs.

The transformational strength of CTT lies in their ability to surface data which engenders new conversations: conversations that have never happened before. They get people talking about what is fundamentally important to them — their values, their beliefs and their fears.

Here is a sample Cultural Values Assessment (CVA), one of the CTT you will be certified to use: Click here.

As a leader, coach, consultant or internal change agent, you will have the opportunity to become skilled in using all the Cultural Transformation Tools. This accreditation training is designed to make participants conscious, confident and competent about the Cultural Transformation Tools and to explore practical applications for working with the results of the values assessments.

The entire program is designed to give you a deep understanding of the CTT Models and Tools, as well as practical experience on how to apply CTT in your cultural transformation process. The course also provides an opportunity for your own personal transformation – a personal in-depth experience of the transformation you want to realise in your personal and professional life.

You will also join our community of over 3500 CTT consultants, from 70 countries. 

The CTT provide the detailed cultural diagnostics you need to plan, shape and manage your: change initiatives, leadership development strategies, cultural transformation programmes, merger compatibility, diversity interventions, talent management, or customer feedback.


  • Provide leaders with a way of managing the cultural evolution of their organisation as they would manage their finances.
  • The results can generate deep meaningful conversations about the purpose and strategy of the organisation and the well-being of all stakeholders.
  • Provide a road map for achieving high performance, resilience, and long-term sustainability.


  • Individuals, Teams, and Organisations – CTT can be used for individual coaching, leadership development, organisational or team transformation, and whole system change.
  • Short Survey – The assessment instruments are available on-line and require only 10-15 minutes to complete.
  • Customisable – The assessment instruments can be customised to the specific cultural and demographic needs of the groups being surveyed.
  • Demographics – The richness of the survey data is determined by the depth of demographic categories chosen. There is no limit to the number of demographic categories you can choose.
  • Affordable – The tools are affordable for both small and large organisations. Costs are based on the number of reports requested, not the number of survey participants. Reduced fees are available for primary and secondary educational institutions.
  • Fast Turnaround – A Cultural Values Assessment typically goes from survey initiation to reporting in two to four weeks.
