NLP Training in Chennai

Posted by on 10:16 am in Blog | Comments Off on NLP Training in Chennai

NLP Training in Chennai If you are looking for an NLP training in Chennai, you will find few decent options, and to extend your options, you can consider joining for an NLP training program in Bangalore, which is close to Chennai, but better in quality.  Since you will be investing a substantial amount of time and money in the program, it is natural for you to find out whether the program is worthy of the investment or not.  You may or may not be aware that most of the options for NLP training in Chennai are not of great standard.  Some of the programs are run by trainers who are not even properly qualified.  It is imperative that you identify a good program that meets your needs, and is run by a Master NLP Trainer and Coach with valid credentials, knowledge, and experience. You must also pay attention to the training organization and find out more about their recommendations, testimonials etc.  SO with the obvious out of the way, let us find out the things which you should not base your course on. Dates of the course If you went through a number of training programs online and then simply chose the one that matched your schedule, then there is a chance that the program may not fit your requirements perfectly. Basing any course solely on the dates of the course can be a mistake. You must find out more about the program and the reputation of the organization before choosing a program.  Keep your dates flexible, so that you can attend the right course. Cost of the course Sometimes, you may find attractively low prices to be a great reason for choosing a particular course over the other. But remember that sometimes, you may just get what you paid for. New organizations or those organizations that do not have a good footfall may choose to reduce the cost of the program to increase the number of enrolments. You may happen to come across a good trainer who delivers a great session even when the course fee is low, but basing the choice of the program only on the cost of the course can be a mistake that you may later regret. Make informed decisions by choosing a program that is afforable but has a better success rate, and market standing. Location of the course If you are truly serious about the NLP program then there is a chance that the program that you are interested in may be located further away from where you live. The fact is that there are many people who travel across cities for the right program.  Restricting NLP program search based on NLP training in Chennai may limit your options to attend a good course.  Make sure you look for a program that fits your requirements perfectly and don’t always base your choice of program on the location of the course.  Be flexible, and be ready to travel to attend the right course. Tacky Marketing Strategies While every training organization out there may be using a number of marketing methods to promote their programs, you must watch out for flashy marketing without solid training material in it. Look for the factors that really matter, like the training content, the trainer and the training...

NLP Practitioner Training Online

Posted by on 2:59 pm in Blog | Comments Off on NLP Practitioner Training Online

NLP Practitioner Training Online Digitization never had a smooth entry into the world. There was a time when people found it difficult to rely on an online store to send clothes of the right measurement. Even difficult was the fact that payments had to be made online and if the product didn’t come as expected then the whole process of returns was another hassle. Eventually, things smoothed out and now businesses are thriving online. For many who think that this is as good as digitization gets, more so if you are considering to do an NLP Practitioner Training Online, it is time for you to know that this is just the beginning of an easier and smoother way of conducting many businesses online.

There are many benefits of an online NLP practitioner training program which makes it more preferable than the traditional classroom trainings in some cases.  There are always Pros and Cons, and we will discuss those as well, while you may be considering to do an online NLP Program. Advantages of NLP Practitioner Training Online: Traveling Constraint: When you are trained online, you have the comfort of being at your home or office and completing the training instead of having to travel to a training class.  If you want to do a specific course, and the in class program option does not work for you due to location constraints, then online NLP Training program option is an easier option to get started in NLP and Coaching.  Though it may be slightly expensive if it a Trainer lead one to one course.  Off line courses are way cheaper, but then the quality, depth of the program, program being non interactive makes a program questionable.   Personal Attention: Having a one to one conversation with the trainer makes a big difference when compared to sitting in a training room with at least 30-40 other learners.  In some cases where co-founders of NLP are training there can be 140-150 people in one training program.  Personal One to one NLP Program provides learner an opportunity to see the real time flavor of NLP Techniques, as the participant gets to be the demo person experiencing the techniques with the trainer all the time.  Plus, trainer has the time to adapt and explain different versions of the same techniques which can be used in different scenarios by an NLP Practitioner when practicing with their clients.  If you are looking for personal attention to understand the concepts better, then one to one NLP Practitioner Training online is an option to consider.   Flexible Timings You can also choose flexible timings which allow you to schedule your trainings according to your ease. It helps you to complete your training without your training interfering with your everyday schedule.  You can discuss with Trainer and reschedule any one to one session easily if there is something that needs immediate attention. ...

NLP Practitioner program in India

Posted by on 2:19 pm in Blog | Comments Off on NLP Practitioner program in India

What are some of the aspects that one must consider while selecting a Certified NLP Practitioner Program in India? While there are many considerations, here are some of the most important one’s that one must consider, when they have to finalize, which NLP Program to attend in India: 1. First and foremost accreditation of the training organizations and the team of trainers and coaches facilitating the program.  Do check the quality of NLP accreditation approvals (ABNLP, ANLP, UK, Richard Bandler NLP, John Grinder, etc.) the training company has.  The word quality is important here, as there are many NLP accreditation bodies in India and outside India as well, which are churning out sub-standard Practitioners.  An accreditation body started by sub-standard trainers in Europe or Asia or any other part of the world does not automatically become good.  Generally there is a myth in India, anything foreign is good.  The oldest accreditation bodies in the world are Richard Bandler NLP, John Grinder’s body, American Board of NLP, ANLP, UK.  Among others there are few good one’s, but make sure you check all the other considerations listed below.   2. Check whether the program is an application based program, where the focus is on NLP framework and how it is used for Self Coaching, application in Life Coaching, Executive Coaching, and Sports Mind Peak Performance Coaching, how to improve counseling skills, Sales Coaching etc. Most of the NLP training programs are run as pure NLP (classic NLP) programs – there is nothing wrong in those programs, but those programs won’t focus much on the applications, and does not allow participants to practice applications of NLP framework during the program itself, hence limiting the usage and application of learning.   3. Check the content that the organization is sharing on its blog to: educate future participants, provide honest answers to the questions that participants ask (The answer which you are reading is because of the questions that we generally receive, and it helps to create an FAQ and share with others looking forward to do an NLP Practitioner Program in India).  If somebody is doing a benchmark of NLP Practitioner Program in India, then good content on the site will help participants to become aware about NLP and which program to attend.   4. What are the approvals that the program has? Some of the top accreditation bodies for NLP is Bandler’s accreditation body, John Grinders body, American Board of NLP (ABNLP), ANLP, UK, International Coach Federation (ICF-USA) for Coaching, International Association of Coaching (IAC) etc.   5. Is the training institute going to help you in developing your business?  This is one of the most important aspect while selecting an NLP Program, if you are considering to join an NLP Practitioner program to start off with, and then later on considering to become an NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Trainer.  A good NLP institute will be able to show you the path or at least will be happy to discuss that with you.  If they are authentic, know about NLP and application of NLP in developing businesses, they will clearly answer all your queries.   6. Depth of the program:  Duration of any NLP Practitioner level program will range from 6 days to 10 days.  Some of the training vendors will...

Online NLP Training

Posted by on 9:17 am in Blog | Comments Off on Online NLP Training

Online NLP Training What is NLP Neuro Linguistic programming (NLP) the cutting edge technology (also referred to as key to open full potential of Human Brain) was invented by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in 1970’s in California.  Classic definition of NLP is that, ‘NLP is about modelling excellence’.  It’s the study of exemplary human behavior, and breaking that down into learnable patterns which anybody can learn. Example. A person who is good in public speaking is good because of some excellent patterns which are unique to that person.  Using NLP this behavior can be broken into sizable chunks which can be used to create a model to make effective public speaking easy for those who want to learn this behavior. It is a study of people’s mind, feeling, language, and behavior to understand how they do certain things in life and help them manifest new and better behavioral patterns to achieve greater good in life. This approach allows any person to model the skills of geniuses and manifest them in their lives, by modelling excellence. NLP aims at improving the relationship between ones’ conscious and subconscious mind by improving the communication between the two. It helps subconscious mind to understand what conscious mind wants and helps in achieving that. It can be referred to as a life changing philosophy that helps to achieve our goals in both personal and professional spheres of life. How were the NLP classes being conducted? Initially during 1980-1999, when the training used to be conducted by Richard Bandler, John Grinder and other Tier 1 NLP trainers (Steve Andreas, Tad James, Robert Dilts etc.), it used to be a 14-20 days’ program at the entry level.  It used to be a more generic and was less modern day application (Coaching, Sales, and Leadership Development) focused.  It was a total personal transformation program, and used to go deeper into classic patterns and concepts. Now 2000 onwards, we see a trend where all major accreditation bodies have reduced entry level Practitioner programs to 6-7 day’s program. The program objectives have become more precise and what used to be covered in a span of 12-14 days is now getting covered in lesser time though it still covers all the aspects of the classic code training. The fundamentals of these programs are better defined now than earlier which makes the training more organized and structured considering the time constraint business folks have these days.   Online NLP Training – the Need of the hour 1.      Delivery style of programs: With the advent of technology and a screen fixated society being the largest audience, some of the NLP trainers have thought about bringing changes in the way they operate. The need of the hour is to make things more interactive and flexible to a larger audience. Though, it is fine for an entry level program (Diploma/Associate Practitioner – 2-4 days content) to have an offline program delivered through content, podcasts or recorded videos, but an NLP Practitioner program needs to be run online with the trainer facilitating the group learning, queries etc., if a class room based NLP Practitioner Program is to be run as an Online NLP Practitioner Program. It gives an edge over the traditional classroom programs as it allows the trainees to be attending from locations...

NLP Coach Program in Bangalore

Posted by on 2:00 pm in Blog | Comments Off on NLP Coach Program in Bangalore

Understanding NLP – NLP Coach Program in Bangalore   Human experiences are a result of the way we think, the way we communicate (both verbal and non-verbal) and the corresponding behavior patterns and emotions felt. Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is based on the tenet that that all human behavior and emotions felt in various situations are a result of various learned patterns acquired over a period of time, which this can be changed by reprogramming or changing the neurological wiring of human brain, by providing new choices, and practicing them consciously so that they become part of muscle memory.  Hence, becoming a new way of operating in old scenarios, in a much resourceful way.   Richard Bandler and John Grinder together developed this technology by combining the study of neurological configurations (understanding the behavior of the brain), linguistic structures (language that the brain understands), and how people learn (programming part).  This lead to an exploration which became one of the most important discovery of tapping into human potential.   Standard NLP learning has been applied to coach people, and NLP based coaching has been used widely as a coaching methodology across different areas (Life Coaching, Executive Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Peak Performance Coaching,  Business Coaching,  Team Coaching,  Transformation Coaching, Sports Mental Coaching) for the past three decades for purposes of personal and business transformation.   All human behavior and actions are a result of underlying filters, beliefs and value systems being the prominent ones which are the driving force behind any behavior that a person exhibits.  In simple words, beliefs and values, result in certain thought patterns, which in turn defines the behavior/ action.  Standard NLP techniques are part of NLP based course curriculum where a person learns how to break un-resourceful beliefs (which hampers persons growth), and to create empowering beliefs.  NLP also helps in Value Realignment which is a very powerful behavior change techniques, which allows person control over a situation where they want to have more choices, and get better results.   Attending an NLP coach program in Bangalore will help you get clarity in your life.  It helps you to understand your purpose, and get deeply connected with it, so that it is easy to set powerful goals, and ways to achieve them.   Many people who have attended NLP programs say, “With NLP there is no limit to what one can do. All they have to do is: Jump into learning NLP, trust in the process of change, and take massive actions to achieve the change.” Mentioned below are a few things that will give you a flavor of how NLP can help you, if you are contemplating to attend an NLP based program for personal transformation or to attend an NLP course to become a Life Coach / Leadership Coach etc.   Achieving something: Desired business results Career growth Reaching a desired outcome / goal Getting fit Control over smoking / excessive use of alcohol   Overcoming a fear or phobia: Fear of failure Fear of public speaking Fear of being in a relationship Fear of insects etc.   Developing skills & competencies: Learning a new language Learning a new behavior Developing leadership skills Conflict Management etc.   Mastering emotions: Learning how to stay calm in stressful situations Overcoming negative or hurtful emotions Building...

NLP Modelling Example-I

Posted by on 1:45 pm in Blog | Comments Off on NLP Modelling Example-I

Introduction: NLP Modelling Example-I At work few months back, I attended a Toast Master meeting, in which select individuals delivered a speech before an assembled audience. As is always the case, some speakers were very good, some were average, and some were trembling like a leaf. For person who suffers from low confidence during public speaking, the general advice is that if they want to improve public speaking skills they should practice repeatedly in front of a mirror in order to feel confident. This advice however would be incomplete if the person is not told ‘How’ to feel confident, and ‘What’ needs to be done in order to feel confident. As a diehard fan of NLP, I immediately felt that ‘If one person can be a spontaneous powerful speaker, so can others’.  At that point, I decided that my NLP modelling project will be, ‘How to become a powerful speaker’. The choice of this NLP modelling topic was also in sync with the ‘Outcome’ I hold for myself, which is to become a great NLP Trainer.  An important trait of any trainer is to be a powerful speaker, and I am very sure that this modelling project is going to create an everlasting learning for me, and also for the reader who is going to benefit from this project.   David Gordon and Graham Dawes say that: Modelling is a doorway into the vast storehouse of human experience and abilities, providing access to anyone willing to turn the key. For the individual who pursues modeling, this means: Access to an ever-widening range of new experiences and abilities. An increasing ability to bring those same experiences and abilities to others. A finer understanding of the structure underlying unwanted experiences and behaviors so that you know precisely what to change in those experiences and behaviors. Ever-increasing flexibility in your experience and responses. A growing appreciation of the beauty to be found in the patterns of human experience. Overall Outcome The overall outcome of this modelling project was to have a model in place for me and the readers to be able to get into a state to speak powerfully in front of a target audience. Scope The scope of this project was to model the confident speakers, and come up with a model with documented strategies; these strategies when applied by anyone at any point will help them to speak confidently in front of an audience. Success criteria The results that I have noticed other people achieve in the world that I would also like to achieve There are certain speakers who are very confident, and by this modelling project, I will decode the strategies of getting into a state to be a powerful speaker. Sensory specific evidence of completion of this project In sensory specific evidence: I like to see myself very confident, while speaking in front of the audience, I like to see myself speak effortlessly, I like to hear myself be very articulate, very specific before the audience, and I like to feel very calm and composed while delivering a presentation in front of a group. Having said that I would like to be the person following my model to see, hear, and feel the same way after going through this model. How will I know I have...
