Using NLP

NLP Training Australia Singapore SydneyThe tools of NLP are very versatile and we train NLP in a very specific way to help you use NLP in every aspect of life: as a parent, a business owner, at work, with friends, in your finances, with your health, for your growth, in training, as a leader, and just being a better you!

We hear so many times things like:

“I was hoping to improve my communication skills, I’ve improved my life!”

“My goal was to use NLP to be better at business and I know I’m not a better parent, spouse and friend too!”

“I came to learn NLP to help others – I found that I needed to help myself too!”

 Primarily we look at three main uses of NLP for every skill and tool you learn: 1) how to apply it to yourself, 2) how to apply it in business and 3) how to apply it with others.

Using NLP for Yourself

selfFirst and foremost the NLP journey starts and ends with you. Without embodying these tools for yourself in your own life, they are challenging to use with others.

So,If you are ready to simply take the leadership role in your life – then NLP is a great tool to have to help you.

In NLP we know that you are in charge of your mind, therefore, your results. And all NLP tools help to create a life filled with more wholeness and choice. Approximately 40% of all of our students learn NLP simply as a personal development tool. They find the tools to be very versatile for use in every area of life.

As an NLP Practitioner with a focus on Personal Development, NLP will help you to:

  • Understand how you create and use the patterns of emotion, behaviour and belief in your life.
  • Enhance or change any patterns which will help you to live your best life.
  • Improve your communication with your self and with others.
  • Motivate yourself to achieve your goals and desires.
  • Understand how the language of the mind creates the programs of life – and how to change them when you desire.
  • Live your life as a more authentic you – to get out of your way and be the best you can be.

Ultimately, there are three facets of life that NLP can greatly improve:

A person’s State is your mood or emotion that you are having at any given point in time. Your State has direct correlation to the behaviours you have and the action you take. With NLP you can manage your state and have total control over your mind, emotions, behaviours and beliefs.

A person’s Story is your history and often times becomes an excuse or reason for not taking action. NLP will help you to reclassify the stories of your life, to access the resources available in your stories and to use your history to help make you stronger and more resourceful for the future.

A person’s Strategy is the unconscious patterns of emotion, belief, behaviour and thought that either sets you up for success or failure. With NLP you will learn a variety of techniques that will help you to enhance the strategies that work well and change the one’s that do not.

With the skills of NLP in your toolbox for life the possibilities become endless. Adages such as If its possible for someone, it is possible for me really come true. In fact, the more you use NLP in your everyday life, the more it becomes a filter and the easier it is to Be, Do and Have what you want in life.

These powerful skills are so dynamic and simple, if it were possible, we would make NLP Practitioner Certification a pre-requisite to being an adult! At the very least to becoming a parent.    

Using NLP in Business

NLP for BusinessWhat do these people all have in common? Managers, Leaders, HR Professionals, Entrepreneurs, CEO’s, Solopreneurs, Team Leaders, Business Owners. They all work toward achieving goals through processes or people.

It takes a special person to start their own company or to lead a company. Did you know that less than 10% of start-ups will exist in two years? Do you realise that most people who are promoted to management positions were never trained to do these roles?

It is time to set yourself up for success. If you choose to do even once training in the next 12 months, make it the training that will add not only to the life of your business but to the life of you: NLP Practitioner Certification.

From a business perspective, NLP helps to align the Present State (where they are now) and the Desired State (where they want to be) of individual employees, team members, management and core with the Company Goals and objectives.

Often, there is a mis-alignment of values, belief, personal confidence, direction and awareness. NLP helps to improve communication skills, identify blocks, access resources and build a pathway to achieve and exceed the goals for an individual, team or company as a whole.

Using NLP with Others

NLP CoachCoaching is one of the fastest growing industries in the world today. From Life Coaching to Executive Coaching – the thing that sets one coach apart from the other is the modality they use to coach. Of course as a coach, you want to be the best coach you can possibly be, and that is where NLP comes in. Because NLP is an Outcome Based tool it is exceptional to help people to maintain motivation, clear barriers and reach their goals.

It has been found that NLP Coaches:

  • Are able to help their coaching clients 45% faster than traditional coaches
  • Have versatile skills to bridge the gap between coaching and therapy
  • Earn up to 85% more income than non-trained NLP coaches
  • Report more self awareness, better communication skills and better relationships in their own lives

Starting your journey to become a coach or continuing to up skill yourself to be an even better coach has many personal and professional benefits. From a personal standpoint, your own personal communication, relationships, confidence and pathway will become clearer and more enriched. On a professional level, training as a coach provides you a meaningful platform for providing service to others while providing you with personal, professional and financial success.

If you are looking to add to your current coaching skills, become a professional coach, use your coach skills in your current workplace or simply gain qualifications to help others – the core competencies and skills you gain during your training will have a positive impact on your life and others. Our students and graduates use their coaching skills to start their own full-time or part-time coaching practices, many acquire coach skills to enhance their results in their current management or leadership positions and for others it is more of a personal journey and a time for personal growth.

Coaching with NLP

The tools and methodologies of NLP to assist clients in both a therapeutic and coaching aspect. NLP is a very outcome specific coaching tool that encompass skills for identifying goals, creating motivation, clearing barriers for success and creating a clear pathway to helping a client get to their desired state or goal. We differentiate therapy and coaching in the following way:
Coaching: assisting a person to achieve a specific goal through cognitive and behavioural encouragement, motivation, enhancement and change. An NLP Coach may help someone with goals such as weight loss, career change, starting a business, creating wealth, life transition, etc.
Therapy: assisting a person to achieve and maintain a new state of emotional, psychological or behavioural awareness. An NLP Therapist may help someone with a fear, anxiety, depression, stuckness, feelings of worthlessness, unwanted behaviours, etc.
Ultimately your role as a coach will be determined by the clients that you are seeing. Some coaches choose to specialise in a specific area (ie. relationships, executives, men, etc), while others become more ‘generalist’ coaches and adapt their style to the topic of the client. The versatility of NLP skills easily allows for a generalist approach.

Here is a general overview of how NLP works as a Coaching Modality

More and more people are understanding that help is available which can assist them to achieve their goals, get out of their own way and make more progress. All clients walk into coaching with a Present State (where they are now) and a Desired State (where they want to be), but often are lacking the skills and knowledge to bridge the gap.

Most Coaches has skills to identify the PS & DS, yet short of motivation and cheerleading, they also lack the skills to help bridge the gap between PS & DS. This is where NLP Coaching comes in.

NLP Coaching and Therapy
An NLP Coach, has the skills necessary to identify two key concepts: 1) what interferences (beliefs, behaviours, emotions, etc.) might be standing in the way from moving from PS to DS and 2) what resources (skills, attitudes, attributes, etc.) are required to bridge the gap. More importantly, once this information has been elicited, the NLP Coach has the knowledge and skills needed to change or clear interferences and access and build resources. Some of these tools and processes include:
Tools for Clearing Interferences Tools for Accessing Resources
  • Belief Change
  • Unconscious Pattern Change
  • Reimprinting
  • Change Personal History
  • Parts Integration
  • New Behaviour Generator
  • Resources Anchor
  • Circle of Excellence
  • Integrating Anchors
  • Perceptual Positions

 

This type of Coaching can be used in all facets of life outside of professional coaching. This is why we also have a number of non-professional Coaches who also join us for this training. At our Coach Training courses you will also meet parents, teachers, leaders, managers, HR Professionals and ‘that’ person who is just the ‘go to’ person for all of their friends.
