Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP has become the Personal Development tool in recent years. With its intense focus on personal outcomes and individual empowerment, it is little wonder that elements of NLP discipline have now crept into just about every other type of training programme, from management development through to sales, negotiation and communication workshops.

NLP and its tools, principles and approach also provide the natural bedrock of the successful coach. The coaching industry continues to grow and is predicted to be a registered and professionalised activity in the coming years.

This modular program introduces the key principles and ideas that support NLP and will equip you with numerous coaching techniques that you will be able to use straight away in your coaching practice and with colleagues at the office.

Key Objectives for the program are:

  • Improved communication skills
  • Understanding why language is so powerful
  • Unlocking the key to setting goals and actually achieving them
  • Discover the art of questioning
  • How to create rapport easily
  • Learn about human experience
  • Unleash your personal confidence
  • Become a more confident coach

This is a three day programme presented over one month. This custom designed format maximises opportunities for delegates to implement their learning in the real world and follow up with additional coaching and guidance from Donald if requested.

Those that successfully complete the program will receive the UKCPD Foundation Diploma in NLP. This certificate is recognised by the ANLP at Diploma Level, membership of the association and its benefits will be explained at the end of the program.
