In today’s complex business environment, imparting knowledge is no longer sufficient to guarantee lasting change. Successful leaders need to be able to subtly influence the behaviours and mindsets of team members in order to align them behind a shared mission or vision and to lead out their untapped talents.

The WHATEVER LIFE THROWS Applied NLP: Business Practitioner programme teaches existing and aspiring leaders and coaches a set of applied psychological techniques that enable them to facilitate pragmatic change, motivate action, and increase engagement.

The course is divided into three modules:

  • Diploma of Applied NLP: Coaching
  • Diploma of Applied NLP: Leadership
  • Advanced Techniques and Integration

The programme is designed to build confidence and congruence enabling leaders to influence with integrity, and apply their learning directly in the workplace.

You’ll be interested in this course:

  • If you have a responsibility for managing or developing staff and want to feel better equipped to facilitate practical, pragmatic, change.
  • If you’re an existing leader who wants to increase staff engagement, motivation and responsibility.
  • If you are new or are aspiring to management and want to embody the characteristics of successful leaders.
  • If you want to develop your coaching skills or build confidence.
  • If you have a mission or vision that you want to align people behind or inspire to action.
  • If you have an organisation that wants to build a coaching culture and system for talent management and retention.

At WHATEVER LIFE THROWS we don’t believe in role play, we encourage our participants to use their organisation or personal mission as a filter for their experience on our courses and to apply the concepts and techniques they learn in their own lives so that they are truly able to embody them with elegance and confidence.
