Narrative for Certification Masters and Exclusive Rights Owners

The professionals who train and certify others in the administration and interpretation of the Narrative Big Five Assessment are called Certification Masters. These individuals have significant experience and expertise in Big Five interpretation and analysis and have been specially trained to certify others in the use of Narrative’s Big Five Assessment.

At Narrative, we have an attitude of abundance and believe that significant market demand exists across industries and geographies. As such, we do not limit our Certification Master partners to a specific region. Generally, our Certification Masters are selected from a chosen pool of highly experienced Big Five professionals. However, we have some flexibility in narrowing the timeline to achieving Certification Master status.

Exclusive rights ownership provides exclusive sales and consulting rights to specific geographic regions. Currently, Narrative has assigned exclusive rights ownership to Mia-Riitta Niemi of Claro Oy in Finland and will consider assigning exclusive rights owners in other countries.

Our assessment and reports are available in English, Finnish and Swedish with additional translations underway.
