The Benefits Of NLP Training – Transform Possibility Into Probability

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 A pile of books and the words Back To School to answer the question of whether to get more NLP training or not.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.

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 Image of lady holding a briefcase that has the word "skills" on it representing the benefits of NLP training..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.

Avoiding These 3 Ideas Supercharge Efficient Communication

Today’s clients want change fast which means efficient communication. In our everyday world, speed has become king. And personal growth is not immune to this desire.

Speed is in high demand. And on top of that, you may find yourself dealing with time constraints also imposed on the client’s desire for personal growth & professional development.

This reality is forcing coaches to learn how to work faster, more efficiently, and most important, remain as effective as ever in producing long term results.

The key to handling this conundrum is discovering and embracing the art of rapport.

Efficient communication can be disrupted when you become:

      • Secretly ambivalent about seeing new clients
      • Nervous about starting to get your coaching career off the ground
      • At a loss to understand why a very ‘easy’ client suddenly became ‘difficult’
      • Sensing you lost your client somewhere along the way and don’t know why or how
      • Afraid to take on a client who seems resistant to doing the work, yet wants the change they’re asking for
      • Exasperated, but suddenly confident that person falls into the category of being  ‘uncoachable’
      • Certain your client isn’t ‘ready’ to do the work they need to do to get the change they want

Without The Skill To Develop & Maintain Rapport
You Can Reach Unhelpful Conclusions

These concerns have contributed to the development of three very unhelpful notions that block efficient communication. And my concern is that these ideas have become all too prevalent, and accepted as true, in the world of coaching.

Because these ideas provide the coach with a reason for the appearance of all of the above stated concerns, they have the power to interrupt the coaching process, often before it truly begins.

When left unchallenged, these ideas can become the stated reason why the coach is not able to get the client to their stated goal – leaving you, the coach, (and your client) feeling a bit lost, confused, and frustrated.

When a coach embraces these three ideas as the ‘truth’ about their client, the coach’s value and usefulness to the client can quickly fade into the background.

And this also leaves the coach feeling less than great about their skill, and often doubting their competence & capabilities.

Are you feeling a little pressured because clients are generally expecting quick results? If so, you may be at the effect of these 3 pervasive ideas.  They can 1) disrupt efficient communication, 2)  stymie your success and 3) cut you off from your professional creative power.


The 3 Ideas Sure To Disrupt Efficient Communication 

Too frequently I hear the following 3 notions as the reason a client is not reaching their goal. And, why the coach is helpless to make it different.

      • The first most pervasive notion is that it is possible for a client to be ‘un-coachable’.

      • The second most pervasive notion is that the client isn’t ready to make the change they say they want.

      • And the third most pervasive notion is that the client doesn’t really want to change.

These all translate into the notion that somehow the problem is with the client. And that may or may not be the reality of the situation.

With the proper skills, these three ideas lose their power and sense of truthfulness.

This skill-set frees the coach to dive into the what is now an open book – and help the client keep moving toward their goal.

 

All clients automatically become ‘coachable’ when you know how to establish rapport with their unconscious mind.

Got A Great Model For Mental Health & Emotional Well-Being?

Ever wish you knew just a little bit more than you do?  Heard someone talking about something and had to pretend you were up on it?  Wished you had the time and energy to take on learning something new?  Felt a little like you’d fallen behind and might not ever catch up with the newest in your field?

If so, our Blog is for you.

The personal growth industry has become quite prolific in its offering of multiple ways to arrive at good mental health and emotional well-being.  There is so much, you can easily feel left behind and a bit confused about what might be best to explore. So how do you decide which offering is the most valuable?

The thing is – every model has something of value to offer – especially if you’re a coach, counselor, therapist, or hypnotherapist. The more models within your grasp, the greater probability you will have something that fits your client.

This is truly important, for it frees you from making the most common, and often the most hurtful, mistake of our profession: trying to fit your client into the one or two models you’ve chosen to learn – rather than finding the one that fits your client best.  And this can happen whether you’re just starting out, or the consummate, seasoned professional.

Our desire at To Help You Help Others is to expand your awareness of all the models in today’s marketplace for both mental health and emotional well-being.  We’ll show you how learning new ways of approaching old problems will not only refresh a possibly waning interest, but increase your success rate and the frequency of seeing your client’s eyes light up with delight and wonder at how they’ve reached their goal.
