NLP Training FAQs – Read this first

Posted by on 10:16 am in Blog | Comments Off on NLP Training FAQs – Read this first

NLP Training FAQs These NLP Training FAQs are based on the questions that people generally ask us, and these are important from the perspective of somebody who is looking to attend an NLP Training program.   How is NLP Coaching Academy different than others? We don’t compare ourselves to others.  We focus on what we do, we can tell what we have been doing, and what makes us unique. We are accredited by American Board of NLP (ABNLP), and our Master NLP Trainer Vikram Dhar is recognized by ANLP, UK, Certified by ABNLP, is an ICF Mentor Coach, and an ICAgile Authorized Trainer to facilitate Agile Certified Coach training (the only trainer in the world to have this qualification combination). He is certified by Richard Bandler, John Grinder, and has trained extensively in classic code and New Code NLP, NeuroScience, and NeuroSemantics. He has been trained and has attended mentoring sessions with John Grinder, Frank Pucelik, Robert Dilts, Ian McDermott, Michael Hall, Michael Beale, Shelle Rose, and Sue Knight some of the big names (Co-founders and Co-developers, and Tier 1 NLP Trainers and Coaches) in NLP. Our trainings are also approved by International Coach Federation (ICF, USA) for ACSTH hours, which allow a participant to become an ICF ACC Coach. This probably is the only program in the world which offers this combination of NLP & NeuroScience in course curriculum along with a path towards ICF certification. Our Master Practitioner level course is a modular based course which allows a participant to learn Team and Group Coaching, Accelerated Learning, New Code NLP (John Grinder’s approach), Coaching using Neuro Science, and the latest developments in Neuro Science, which are changing the NLP world drastically by bringing in elements of science and research into NLP. We have a large NLP Trainer and Coaches network spanning across many countries: USA, Canada, UK, Dubai, Australia, Kuwait, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Australia and various cities in India. We allow best post program support by having all participants in a closed whatsapp group for further clarification and mentoring by senior coaches and trainers. We allow all past participants to repeat the courses for free. We have a Franchise model for Accelerated Learning (as part of Master Practitioner) and provide free access to coaching portal to find clients. How to select an NLP Training program and how to decide which NLP Combination to select from the Integrated Five Certification Course? Selecting an NLP Training program is easy.  If you are looking to bring in changes within yourself at a personal level, then a person must only attend a course without a certification (We allow that as part of our social responsibility during our Integrated Five Certification Combo). If you are looking to become an NLP Practitioner and use NLP in counselling or for change work or therapeutic intervention, then only NLP Practitioner combo (Diploma in NLP, Advanced Diploma in NLP Coaching, and NLP Practitioner – we provide them as a set) is required – Combo I. If a person is looking forward to become a professional coach, then along with NLP Practitioner, coaching credentials is something that will come handy.  Our five-certification combo (Combo II) is sufficient to get started, if this is the outcome of a candidate. If somebody is looking forward in becoming a professional...

ICF Coaching

Posted by on 4:47 pm in Blog | Comments Off on ICF Coaching

ICF Coaching Accreditation When it comes to Accreditation for Executive Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Team Coaching, and Group Coaching for Coaches (these are more of B2B Corporate coaching engagements), having an ICF Coaching Accreditation will make a huge difference.  There are many coaches in the market these days, and many of them pose as Transformational Coaches, Life Coaches, and Peak Performance Coaches when they are not even properly trained and don’t even understand what coaching is, but just want to latch on to the branded words for some mileage. ICF coaching refers basically to ICF Certified coaches who have undergone an International Coach Federation (ICF-USA) approved training program (bare minimum 60 hours of approved ICF ACSTH training program), would have been mentored by an ICF Mentor Coach, would have coached for 100 hours, and would have cleared an ICF exam. All these steps ensure that the ICF Certified Coach is a trustworthy coach (from client’s perspective) with some skills, knows about coaching (client’s perspective), and can leverage that tag to make sure that a business pitch (coach’s perspective) to a potential client has weightage. ICF Certified Coaches are the de-facto standard when it comes to corporate coaching. Most of the corporate select coaches based on a specific coach selection criterion, and one of them most of the time is an ICF credentialed coach. ICF Coaching tag ensures that the coaches have leverage in the market space, and, they are assured that they are not put into the same category of non-credentialed coaches, which is going on in the market and creating havoc. There is a joke in the coaching industry in India. ‘Why not to become a Life Coach?’ – Go to any coffee shop, you can see around five people (Barely 20 something old) sitting there, trying to chit chat in accented (possibly won’t even have travelled outside India) sophisticated English, browsing on their apple machines, and sipping Cappuccino. They will be the Life Coaches, without any proper training. They would have copied the tag by watching some of the movies that have portrayed Life Coaching as being fancy, and we have New Generation Z Life Coaches, who have not even started their life properly yet thinking it is cool to be a Life Coach, as it means “Giving guidance to people” Coaching industry in India has evolved in last five years with more people looking forward to becoming ICF Coaches, because those who are serious about coaching want to segregate themselves from the rest. They also want to make it clear to potential corporate clients that they mean business, and can deliver as well. If you are looking forward to becoming an ICF Coach, then make sure that you have a plan in place, and one of them can be to become serious about getting trained in ICF Coaching. Considering the inflow of non-credentialed coaches in the market is going to increase in due course of time, it might be a good idea to plan this well and get a head start with your Coaching plan. If you are looking forward to take your coaching (If you are yet to become an ICF Coach) journey to next level, or are just starting in Coaching industry, then do plan to become an ICF Certified Coach.

Participants Beware!

Posted by on 4:12 pm in Blog | Comments Off on Participants Beware!

Participant’s Beware! (Fraudulent Top NLP training in India) Some of the so-called top NLP training in India (as claimed by some trainers) are run by fraudulent trainers, who basically have not even completed NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Trainer level.  They shamelessly claim to be NLP Master Trainers.  The fraud does not end there, now these so-called NLP Master Trainers are creating further NLP Master Trainers as well, and calling it a value-add.  Shameful! An NLP Master Trainer tag does not come because of a training program.  It is a commitment that an NLP Trainer demonstrates, and some of the top NLP bodies like the Society of NLP (SNLP), American Board of NLP (ABNLP), Association of NLP, UK, and NLP University (Robert Dilts) have basic criteria around that.  For example, to facilitate 6+ NLP Practitioner level programs and co-facilitation requirement in 2+ NLP Master Practitioner level programs.  This is an example of how an NLP Trainer can move into a designation of an NLP Master Trainer by a decent accreditation body. Indians generally are not gullible, it is vice versa, some Indians are expert crooks who want to cheat people by portraying something which is different from reality and they shamelessly do it.  Well, it is not only Indians, we have many foreign trainers coming to India, portraying as brand ambassadors of International NLP associations, and they have created a business of cheating Indians based on how the information is being shown.  As usual, most Indians don’t pay attention and have a habit to fall for these things, including the skin color of the trainer.   The surge in NLP Trainers and NLP Coaches in India is the talk of the town, and with scores of people joining monthly the issue is going to become bigger in due course. It hurts to see this happening in NLP because something which is created to help people is being used ruthlessly to make a business out of it, that too by fooling individuals who are looking for help. The sad part is that not everybody can be warned about these things, and some people fall prey to these vultures of NLP who are full of deceit and are only interested in fooling people. If you are looking forward to attending a Top NLP Training in India, make sure that you do your research properly to understand what you are getting into. Make sure you read about the Lead Trainer, have an idea who they are, what they stand for, what qualifications they have in NLP, what qualifications they have other than NLP (well, at least that is something difficult to fake), what corporate experience they have, what recommendations they have, how does their LinkedIn profile look like, what is their lineage of NLP training, and from whom have they learned NLP. If you pay attention to some of these details, you will be able to make out which NLP training is good, and which trainings are run by genuine NLP trainers who have the experience of conducting them....

Put the missing pieces together through NLP Training

Posted by on 1:19 am in Blog | Comments Off on Put the missing pieces together through NLP Training

“You only get one chance in life, so do your best to make it count, in whatever way that is meaningful to you” There is not a single person in this world, who has not encountered challenging situations in life. Our lives can be aptly compared to a jigsaw puzzle. We keep putting the pieces together, manage to complete a puzzle only to encounter another and the process goes on and on. In this chaos, we strive to find some meaning in this madness, which many times lead us to disappointment and despair. Our lives are ruled by reactions, some pleasant, some unpleasant.  A pleasant reaction gives us joy whereas unpleasant reactions can leave many of us feeling stressed, angry or sad.  We have to deal with ourselves and other human beings, each day. Sparks are bound to fly. Negative feelings are bound to happen. What it would take, to deal with such situations would be, a strong sense of awareness and control of one’s mind and actions. Gaining this power and strength would allow us to lead fulfilling lives and be in control of the – who, what, when, why and how’s – in our lives. We could also call them question marks or limiting patterns. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques (NLP training in action) show the way to create something meaningful out of these limiting patterns.  NLP techniques during an NLP training are designed to support important and subtle skills which include dissociation, rapport building, content re-framing, modelling, anchoring, and belief change. These techniques which a participant can learn in an NLP Practitioner program in India are based on the concept that we already possess the abilities and capabilities needed to bring about the change in our lives and the lives of people we interact with.   What it takes is understand the ‘how’. Zeroing in on a specific area of our life that we want to improve, by detecting our current thought patterns, to uncover self-limiting beliefs and working on those areas to achieve positive results is what NLP training in action will helps us uncover through various techniques, mainly: Dissociation This NLP technique helps to diffuse or overcome negative feelings which might have aroused due to some stressful situations.  It restores objectivity and gets rid of feelings of negativity. It follows the process of dissociating – meaning taking out the personal association with that particular scenario and approaching it like you are watching a movie.  With an outside-in perspective. The negative feelings slowly disappear. It takes out the involvement angle, so you become objective and find solutions to the said problems. Rapport Building Very useful to build relationships, Rapport Building involves the use of techniques like Matching and Mirroring the Outside and the Inside; Pacing and Leading.  Watching another person/s behaving in a positive manner and mirroring one’s body language, words and actions to match that often helps in coming out of negative emotions. In the same way, connecting with people who are on the same page as we, understand us as no other, helps us move into a more positive direction in self-building. Pacing and Leading is about rapport building, with empathy. Reframing Content Which means, looking at an experience from a different perspective, enabling removing focus from the negative elements of that experience.  In other...

How to be an effective Public Speaker

Posted by on 4:16 pm in Blog | Comments Off on How to be an effective Public Speaker

 If you are a leader, a manager or even someone who occasionally speaks to a gathering, I am sure you must have googled the tips for how to improve speaking skills. You may also have spent considerable time on gathering information from various sources on how to be an effective public speaker. Let me start with the bad news first. There’s a term we often use in psychology, its called expert’s guilt. The term means that when you speak to an expert, they will often talk to you at a level where they “expect” you to know the basics. A simple example can be that of a computer engineer trying to explain to you how to use a computer. If you tell them that you don’t know what a VGA cable is or where the power button is located on the keyboard, they will be quite astonished. Because for them, this little piece of information is quite basic. For a computer engineer, “everyone” knows what a power button is, I mean who doesn’t? Now that’s the problem which most of us face as well as commit in our daily lives. What we often ignore are the basic behaviors which catalyze the reactions in our actions. Anyway! To cut to the chase, my point is that if you want to be effective at any skill you want to explore, start at the very basic level of “how” something works, as against “what” works, more so when it comes to how to improve speaking skills. Coming back to public speaking, whenever you observe an effective public speaker and want to seek guidance, your questions to both yourself as well as to them if you do get a chance to seek guidance, should be “how did they do it?” rather than just “what did they do”. The mistake with most of the content that I’ve seen on the internet as well as some effective public speaking experts is either the expert’s guilt, or just simply “what you need to do is…” norm that a majority of experts follow. My experience as a behavioral coach gave me an opportunity to observe some effective public speakers and an insight into the very basic actions, catalysts, stimuli or behaviors which gave rise to their ability to be effective public speakers. I created a detailed study on the subject to arrive at some basic tips which, if used effectively, can turn anyone, and I mean anyone into an effective public speaker. I know it is a tall claim to make when I say “anyone” but so far, my experience in the tips have yielded zero failures; and I hope the trend continues. In this article, I will discuss some traits that are displayed by some of the most effective public speakers which I have observed, and then I will tell you about how it is, that you too can display those traits. I have refrained from discussing humor, body language and memory in this article because those are quite vast topics and they carry too many variables to list generic practices. In other words, they have a targeted approach to specific people. If you want to learn about them, you must first learn what it is that works for you, and then, you must apply a...

ICF Coach Certification in India

Posted by on 6:31 pm in Blog | Comments Off on ICF Coach Certification in India

ICF Coach Certification in India The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the largest coach accreditation body in the world that provides coaching ethics, standards and core competencies around which coaches over the globe choose to operate if they are aligned with ICF. ICF provides approval for the coaching framework and methodologies that various vendors world over operate, and provides approval for the program if it is aligned with ICF’s principles. If you are looking to attend an ICF approved Coach Certification in India, here are some of the considerations that you should look for: 1. Coaching Methodology: Choosing the Coaching framework and Methodology that you are going to learn during the ICF accredited coach program is the key element that you must consider when you are looking for an ICF approved Coach Certification in India. There are many ICF approved courses available, but the one you should consider must be based on a strong Behaviour change background, where the coaching methodology is so well-built that it enables you to start your coaching journey on a powerful note. Some of the strong behaviour based coaching methodologies are: Results based Coaching – Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Coaching using Neuro Science, and Meta-Coaching (Neuro Semantics based). Behaviour based methodology enables you to work on deep routed changes which can be driven by sub-conscious level changes. There are question based coaching tools as well, but they don’t necessarily come with a strong methodology behind them. They are linear in nature, and do not allow the coach flexibility to be totally present with the client, and/or apply a dynamic approach ~ where the next question or pattern interrupt is based on what is happening with the client in real time. 2.Sales and Marketing Support: You have completed your course ~ what next? The most logical question will be: Where are the clients going to come from? Most coaching courses won’t teach you the intricacies of building a coaching practice or finding coaching clients, or branding and content marketing, or influencer marketing and agile marketing, or growth hack in your coaching business. Although these are concepts that every coach must know if they are looking to establish a flourishing coaching business; this is entirely a different course in itself. But if the coaching vendor is intent on sharing some tips and a road map around this, then that is what you must consider. 3.Presence and further support: Check the mentoring support that is available from senior coaches when it comes to your queries post the program. Check if you can attend the course again, and how much it will cost you? Check the locations where the vendor has a presence, and has associations with. Should you need further support in any other city or country, this is the means to easily get that. 4.Price of the program: An expensive program does not translate to the best program. Generally, the pricing of a program is based on the value of the organization offering the program. Some organizations may price the program competitively even though the program quality would be considered the best in terms of methodology. You may have noticed already, competitive in terms of ICF approved programs is definitely going to be more expensive than a random sub-standard Life Coach Certifications, which are many these...

NLP Identity Coaching

Posted by on 11:49 am in Blog | Comments Off on NLP Identity Coaching

NLP Identity Coaching The Way Forward Business owners, leaders, and managers will know how important it is to create a community of employees who feel inspired and motivated by the environment they work in. It is not always easy to create such a work culture and for those who feel that the employees are unable to deliver promising results, NLP identity coaching can be of great value. There are certain aspects of NLP identity coaching that aim at bringing transformations in the perception and meaning of a person and improving their confidence so that they can inspire others.  It is a great way of preparing executives who are ready for a shift from their current level to the next one. Since NLP Identity Coaching is based on the movement from your current state of identity to a desired identity state, it is one of the best means of gaining success in the desired environment. Why Do You Need Identity Coaching? People must be able to identify their inner being and understand what they really are. They should be able to lead their lives in harmony with themselves. With NLP identity coaching we aim at continually answering the question “Who am I?” Your identity is reflected every day in the actions you perform, in the words you say and in the moods you display. Each of these have an impact on the people around you, and your own future. NLP helps you answer the question with deeper meaning. When you are connected to yourself and to the world around you, you will be able to find the true meaning of what you really are, and this will help you further question what you really want to be. It aims at using tools that are easy to grasp and learn so that you can bring impactful changes in yourself. Our aspirations and busyness often disconnect us from what we really are when we block our true selves to don the garb of what we feel we must be. This is usually unintentional and we hardly realize that we have disconnected ourselves from our inner being which in turn brings to question our actual identity. NLP identity coaching helps in removing the barriers that we have created for ourselves and using NLP tools to once again find our true selves and become aware of the behaviours that we must continue and those that we must leave. Why Should a Person Go For NLP Identity Coaching? NLP Identity coaching is for people from all walks of life. It helps you be more aware of what you are. Whether you are a business owner, a leader, a trainee in a company or you stay at home, NLP Identity Coaching helps you enter a state of resourcefulness where you can approach challenges in a precocious way. Identity coaching helps you find the super star in you. It makes you stronger and more confident so that you can handle difficult situations with a stronger sense of decision-making. As a leader or a business owner you will find this to be extremely helpful when your business is in the early stages of success or when your company is going through a particularly bad phase. Very often, our fears hinder our growth in life. Whether it is a...

NLP Training in India

Posted by on 2:26 pm in Blog | Comments Off on NLP Training in India

Fraudulent NLP Training in India and other practices There are many incompetent NLP Trainers in India. Trainers who may have received their NLP Trainer certificate via an incompetent NLP certification body, or “trainers” who may even have never attended an NLP Trainers training! These “trainers” can be referred as fraudulent NLP Trainers in India. Whatever the might case be, both are dangerous, especially if you are considering attending an NLP training in India. From a buyer’s perspective, those who are looking forward to an NLP program, either want to experience personal transformation, as they may be undergoing personal issues in their life; or they may be looking to attend an NLP course to learn NLP from a professional career advancement perspective in order to leverage NLP skills to either increase their marketability for a new job or learn new skills to add to their portfolio of services that they offer. These NLP skills could include: Executive Coaching, Leadership Development Coaching, Life Coaching, Business Coaching, Wellness Coaching etc. When said buyer finds different flavours of NLP available in the market, and depending on the mode of research based on digital (website) or social media platforms (facebook, google pages, Instagram etc.), it is very easy to get influenced by what is projected online. You might think that the structure of those who are authentic can be easily figured out – well in most cases ‘No’, as it would be camouflaged in such a manner, and presented in such a manner that the reader will not have no reason to doubt. An example: Indian Board of NLP (If that is how anybody sounds like) or International Board of Indian NLP Trainers Associations – which focuses on one person – is clearly a give-away that the association is a mom & pop business enterprise. The owner may not have even attended an NLP program! Then there are those projecting 15-20+ years of experience, who look like 30 years olds – again a clear give away; and then there are many more. Any Indian trainer (there are very few exceptions) who claims to have 15-20 years of NLP experience is a clear indication of some form of deceit. They may be trainers and would have probably added NLP Training as a skill a few years back, but for the purpose of marketing, will just say whatever they feel like. Most of the NLP Trainers in India, the good ones, will have 6-8-10 years of experience, as the concept of NLP training in India is relatively new. If an NLP Trainer would have attended NLP training from authentic sources, they would have no qualms in showing off their trainers/mentors on their social media channels, or in their photo galleries. As that adds to the authenticity part. About their delivery skills; well the good ones would be known in circuits where NLP is popular, and being a very niche market the word goes around quickly, both for quality and both for fraudulent practices. Considering how NLP is shaping up in India, it is a matter of great concern, as most of the people feel this is some quick get-rich scheme, and they join the bandwagon only to realize after some months that it is not what they thought, as they may not have the skills to...

How to Improve Sales Using NLP

Posted by on 1:33 pm in Blog | Comments Off on How to Improve Sales Using NLP

How to Improve Sales Using NLP? Use of specific NLP language patterns has been used by many who have been looking for an answer to the question, how to improve sales using NLP.  It is widely used in sales and marketing to influence people by using Persuasive language.  Needless to say, it may sound manipulative to a number of people, but this is where NLP may have been misunderstood. Many sales agencies and marketers, swear by NLP techniques, which they learn during an Certified NLP Practitioner Program. This is because sales can have a substantial impact with the use of the right techniques and strategies. Not only does NLP help you understand such techniques, it also gives you the chance to figure how to improve your communication skills to market or sell a product.  Here are some ways to improve Sales, if you want to know how to improve sales using NLP:   Creating Value Through Scarcity The reason why we love diamonds is because they are scarce and it is difficult to procure them. That and the fact that they are beautiful and flashy, makes diamonds one of the most valuable things on Earth. When people sense scarcity, the chances of buying that product increases than when it is available in abundance.   This is an easy way of influencing customers to buying a product. The urgency created in their mind because of the fact that a product or service is limited, can coerce them into making the purchase.  Nobody wants to be left out or miss on a great deal or a price.   I have just three of these left today, and you may not get it at the same price tomorrow. Imagine how you may feel about buying it at a higher price another day?   By telling the customer what they may be missing out on, you are making them lean towards making that purchase now instead of waiting for later. This creates value for the product and increase the chances of the customer purchasing the product.  The language will be crafted in such a manner to elicit a response so that the customer will make the purchase.     Talk About The Value Rather Than The Price The price is an important factor during sales. But it is not as important as the value of the product for your customer. If you are selling a house, then sell its beauty, the comfort and the best features, instead of the price; if you are selling a car then sell its safety features, the power of the engine, the design and the mileage instead of telling your customers how they may end up paying lesser for a particular car.   If you talk (with your clients) about the value a certain product or service provides, it will make a huge difference when it comes to making a decision by your client.  You may in fact have customers who end up choosing pricier products solely for their value.  Listen to your clients, understand their need, and show the product that best matches their need (in this case their criteria), and you will have a client who got what they wanted, and you were able to make a sale based on showcasing value. If sales is being...
