Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) – defined as ‘the study of excellence’ – has long been recognised as a leadership and development platform for top performance enhanced techniques.

How can Neuro Linguistic Programming help with leadership and development?

NLP World has been at the forefront of enhanced expose of NLP within leadership and development context across a range of corporations.

What kind of ‘edge’ does NLP give you?

 
One way NLP assist leaders and management to get ahead of the gain line, is from the advanced language patterns and physiology techniques which reveal the deeper structure of meaning that influences our beliefs, thoughts and behaviour.

As well as significantly improving your performance at work, NLP techniques and approaches will help you to establish and maintain rapport, explore and alter negative patterns of behaviour, and radically improve your ability to communicate effectively.

NLP will also change the way you operate in, and think about, the world around you. The skills you learn on this course will also positively effect other areas of your life too. We guarantee you’ll be using these skills throughout your career.

What We Discovered 

We found that most managers and employees of businesses, the people that implement your plans, don’t believe they are successful! They are often questioning themselves to see if they are doing their job right, resulting in them working extremely hard, leaving work stressed and feeling undervalued.

Research and experience tell us that very few people have the training skills coupled with knowledge of what the future impact of training has on a team or individual; the knowledge, language or communication skills to turn these situations around.

Business Training

They have no idea how to clear out their own issues to get a work-life balance and just as importantly create a win/win outcome for their business. In other words, they had no plan for dealing with these ‘human’ problems.

NLP Personal Business Success

Perhaps You Can Relate To This Too 

Maybe you can relate to some of the points here; certainly, it’s a major problem for many companies. As a business that focuses only on you getting your overall results, we provide the latest techniques that give your managers and teams with the language and communication skills that turn failure into successes – without the pain. That’s not all; we also found that people like you wanted to be sure that you get what you asked for and for that to be guaranteed!

Learning That Your People Take An Active Role 

For any type of learning to really work you need something that people don’t just listen to but where they physically take part. You want solutions that are fast and immediately effective, where the learning and improvement in people and skills carries on, way after the program has finished; where your people have the ability in the future to know what’s missing and how to deal with it when they come across an unforeseen problem.

So what we always advise is that for any training program, the company provides one to one coaching. From research on training effectiveness, it has been proven that training alone has limited success, with only the top performers getting the most from any workshops given. The medium to low performers need something a little more personal and that’s where coaching comes into play.

Course Content includes:

• Introduction to NLP
• Establishing and Maintaining Rapport
• Body Language
• Managing Your Own State

So basically, we are talking about staff getting engaged and personally contacted to show they make a difference in your corporation.

So how does staff engagement relate to NLP?

 
Recently, NLP World took on running a staff training for GDS International. There were 100 sales staff and 35 senior managers to train in excellent communication and leadership skills. Although the brief was for a one day training, I negotiated the package for one to one sessions afterwards to consolidate the package. Knowing that change and motivation comes from people being taken care of at the deepest level, we set about backing up the principles of NLP we supplied with personally tailored coaching sessions.

This allowed the medium performers to let go of whatever was holding them back, to begin to perform at their highest levels.

Any training course is only as good as the personal attention you can give to staff who are under performing, or who you want to perform to the best of their abilities. Staff engagement through NLP techniques and coaching is one way to make that happen.
