This is the first phase where you will listen to the CDs and complete some of the exercises in the manual.

The programme is very hands-on and practical in nature. Techniques will be demonstrated to you by one of our qualified and experienced NLP Practitioners and then you will practice will a fellow student until you feel confident and comfortable before moving onto the next technique. This also means that you will work with different people and gain many different “Reference Points” for issues that you overcome during your time on the course.

The Business Benefits of Coaching and NLP
So, why learn to coach? Because it has endless applications in a world where getting better results, improving customer service and improving profitability are all essential for individuals and organisations to become successful in very competitive markets.
Coaching promotes individuals to take responsibility for themselves, others and co-operate so they can reach shared organisational goals.

This will build great confidence in yourself and inspire trust in those around you. Seeing the techniques first hand will also mean it is easier to apply them to your own life for increased progress and success.

The applications are endless and include; HR Directors, Learning and Development/OD Managers, Sales Managers, Leaders, Coaches, Consultants, Teachers, and Trainers who want to be innovative in their approach and deliver results.
The course is 7 days in total and includes CDs, Workbook support, and a pre-course qualification test.
Day One – We ease into the course providing you with the opportunity to get to know the trainers and all attendants in a relaxed setting. We recap a sample of the material from the pre-course manual, CDs and workbook answering questions, discussing the ideas and feedback from putting the techniques learned in to practice.
Day Two – You learn and uncover how the mind filters our reality and forms meaning from our experiences. Essentially, our experiences are not raw data.
Day Three – The language we use to speak to ourselves (Self Talk) and to others shapes our reality. We learn how to use questions correctly to discover the trainees model of the world. You will learn how to translate from the answers if your trainees has a victim mentality or if they take full responsibility for themselves and situation.
You will learn how to use abstract levels of language and details to build rapport and better enable you to put your case forward. You will learn to use the Milton model to build rapport, reduce resistance and ease negotiations.
Day Four Coaching Practice – This is the day that sets us apart from the rest of NLP Training Providers! We study the business case for coaching and you will learn THE GROW Model. We then look at Performance Coaching and Personal Coaching Models for increasing an individual’s effectiveness. You will review coaching plans and the importance of tasking and goal setting. We also uncover internal drivers, what they are and how they drive the individual (this is from the master practitioner level). You will then have the opportunity to have a one on one coaching session with another delegate to help them to set a plan to achieve their goals. Additionally, there are more opportunities to practice coaching built into the programme.
Day Five – You will learn how to employ linguistic coaching techniques to destroy negative emotions and limiting beliefs. We begin with techniques such as Resource Anchoring and collapsed anchors before moving onto Time Line Therapy™. There is the further available option of an additional coaching session if this is requested.
Day Six – You will learn how to teach the Time Line Therapy™ to your trainee with simplistic approaches ensuring that they are set up for the best possible outcome using additional techniques at the practitioner level. This includes removing inn conflicts via Parts integration and the fast phobia model.
Day Seven – During day seven we study chain anchors, revisit eye patterns, predicate phrases, and words and show you how to reveal a person’s unconscious thought process for decision making.
There is a thinking pattern associated with the way we decide to make a purchase and this can be ‘fed back’ so as to close a sale or sell a product. We will also delve into the 5 step sales process. To the day we end by individual goal setting.
