Why am I writing about the benefits of NLP training? I’ve been meeting lots of folks recently who are ready to offer a live or on-line program for something they love and want to share. But in chatting with each one, I found the majority did not have any training in how to work with people to help them move toward a certain goal.
I kept getting asked, “Do I need a certification? Do I have to become a student again?” Well, here are a few thoughts to consider.
NLP Training Beneficial To Your Coaching Success?
Yes! And No!
There are many reasons to forget about becoming certified. If you’re looking at marketing yourself as a coach, there are currently no hoops you would have to jump through. There are no legal requirements for taking on that title and throwing your hat in the ring.
However, coaching another human being so that they succeed in reaching their goal can be confusing and challenging.
A recent client who was offering a transformation group shared an upsetting experience. She said when she finished her guided visualization during one of the course meetings, a participant revealed that they couldn’t visualize.
The participant shared that she felt frustrated and felt bad because they couldn’t do what my client was asking them to do. And, my point is this.
My client said she didn’t have a clue what to say or what to do next.
This is an excellent example of the kinds of experience a lack of training can produce. This, and so many other tools for communication and connection, are part of what you learn in NLP Coach Certification Training.
Certification Confers Credibility & Possibilities
More people than you think assume their coach must have some kind of training, or they wouldn’t be offering their services. So when they Google you, they’re looking for proof that you’ve completed some training program. Thus, the upside of certification is that you’re automatically granted credibility.
Credentials often free clients from worrying about how long you’ve been in the business, or how good or not so good you might be. So it’s obvious that certification carries a lot of weight because it creates helpful assumptions that usually remain unchallenged.
But most important, certification gives you the actual skill development that most untrained coaches don’t have. So it allows you to have the tools, and the skills to use them. Thus you’re able to give you and your business the great reputation you want to create.
Reputations are important because great reputations bring you new clients, repeat clients, and fabulous referrals. And your skill is what makes this happen.
Are You Talking About Transformation? Or Delivering It?
There are many benefits to NLP training. But one of the greatest is being able to deliver your client to what they know they need; whether they believe they don’t have it, can’t find it, or can’t reach it, even if they’ve experienced it before.
Here’s one of the NLP secrets that can catapult your success rate. Continue reading
