A Two Day Introduction to Practical and Applicable NLP

Welcome to the Influential Engagement NLP Foundation Course. During this two day experience, your trainer will share with you a whole new approach to engaging with your customers and colleagues and friends, so that you can be an influential and masterful communicator. Over the duration of this course, you will discover the importance of language and how it shapes our thinking and our behaviour in a very unique way.

We believe that everyone has it within them to be really excellent in everything they decide to do. Our courses are no different. Our courses differ from other trainings in the field because we want you to be really outstanding. We want you to leave at the end of the course thinking differently from how people who choose to be just ‘average’ at what they do think.

We mindfully design each moment of our courses with real ‘a-ha’ light bulb moments to deliberately create freedom of thinking without the old limitations that keep people ‘average’. Our approach is far more effective than just teaching the theory and content of NLP. Our vision is to fire up the desire to excel in all our course participants, to free their thinking and create awareness of choice and the personal power that comes with it.

The foundation of this seminar is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). The science and technology of NLP is increasingly being incorporated into the working protocols of organisations all over the world, with some dramatically positive outcomes. The introduction to NLP represented in this course will equip you with the capability to positively affect your relationships and communication skills, both within your working life and also your private life.

Why enter into the NLP experience?

Are your goals, dreams and aspirations important to you? Would you find value in creating your own optimum performance through self-coaching, while mastering the art of effective communication? If you knew how to heal, nurture and grow all of your relationships, would your life be simpler and happier? Do you have a practical objective to change something in your life in order to have what you really want? If so, then you can.
