How taking this training will benefit you.

Course Description:

Based on the therapeutic methods of Milton Erickson, Fritz Perls, and Virginia Satir, you’ll learn new and updated skills for helping professionals, plus how to deal with difficult people, clarify and achieve your goals, and speak the language of leadership. There’s more: systems thinking, timing, nonverbal communication, and influencing with integrity. You will learn practical skills you can use right away that will help you build your practice and make lasting positive changes.

The training begins with "people skills." You'll learn important new things here, even if your people skills are already good. There's new and fascinating information about the three learning styles: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Learn how to know which system a person will be most able to receive the information you have for them.

Discover your style and consider how it is woven into to every area of your life; relating to others, managing stress, making decisions, business dealings, and risk-taking. The “art of connection” teaches how to read the cues from others, determine their communication style, tailor your language to meet them, and creating good rapport, even in challenging situations.

You’ll learn the power of nonverbal communication, the masks of perception, positive language patterns, and states of excellence. The "language of influence," developed by world-renowned Dr. Milton Erickson, enhances your communication in business, sales, and personal relationships. Through self-study, you’ll be able to recognize your "blind spots" and learn multiple ways to minimize or eliminate them. Psycho-geography will reveal how physical proximity affects your interactions, enabling you to recognize cues and make necessary adjustments to maximize your interactions and avoid difficulties as you get top results. This is particularly relevant to business communications.

Each richly experiential weekend brings fun, new friends, and exciting strategies for building confidence, negotiating like a pro, transforming criticism into valuable feedback, defeating old patterns of self-sabotage, taming undermining internal voices that have been holding you back, being a better speller, responding in a new way in a challenging situation, learning a new skill or action, and modeling an expert.

Become adept at taking multiple points of view to provide more possibilities. Review difficult events from past events to "tape edit" the sights and sounds to ensure a better outcome in the future. Learn the tools peak performance consultants employ to facilitate, mediate differences, and find agreement. Learn the psychological processes Olympic athletes use to set new records.

Whether you are looking for tools for a better life at home, at work, in your community, personally or professionally, during a transition at any stage of life, you'll find them in this training.

Your Decision
to take NLP Training is a very important one. It is a decision that will have lasting and positive effects on your life and the lives of those around you.

Most people come to NLP training with a list of areas of their lives they want to improve and enrich, and leave with much more than solutions. They gain the ability to create continuous growth and improvement through out their lives. The skills of NLP are generative.

In this training you will gain information and new perspectives. You will meet many people and form lasting friendships; you will learn many things about yourself and engage in activities that enrich your life.

If you are unable to attend a portion of the training, we will help you organize a study group with your classmates to make up the missed material. In addition, if this training is offered the next year, (it has been offered since 1993) you are welcome to the live the live training the next year to make up the days you missed.

The learning environment: The training is a lively blend of presentation, demonstration, practice, and written notes. Working in small groups, you will apply, refine, and integrate the skills and patterns you will be learning. Our goal is for these new abilities to become a comfortable and integral part of your daily life. A 200+ page manual is included with the full 16-day course.

Your classmates: People drawn to this work come from a variety of backgrounds and professions. They are a vibrant learning community, ranging in past years from ages 17–79. Many participants are professionals who want to continue to advance their careers. Others describe themselves as “regular people” who want to be better parents, enjoy closer loving relationships, and make increasingly better life choices. They value learning and growing and understand that by doing so, they will improve their life and the lives of those around them. They share an interest in communication, leadership, psychology, language, coaching, education, the helping professions, personal growth, learning, mind/body connection, creativity, and mental, emotional, and physical health.

As you consider taking this step, you may want to think carefully about the aspects of your life you want to change and transform, and which ones you want to keep the same or enrich.
