You want to study NLP but don’t want to be a practitioner

“I’m not sure if I want to learn NLP because I don’t think I want to be an NLP Practitioner…”

Most people who learn NLP with me aren’t there because they want to set up shop as an NLP Practitioner.

Most people want to weave NLP through what they already do and this is where NLP is truly remarkable.

When you take NLP and add it to what you already do, whether you’re a team leader, change management specialist, business owner, coach, health and wellness practitioner, or even something way ‹ different like a mural artist, NLP is the special sauce that sets you apart and makes you seriously good at what you do.

Take NLP skills and principles and apply them to anything and it makes that thing better. (Unfortunately, this also applies to someone who is a bit of a dick, they get better at being a dick – in particular when the relational and ecological aspects of NLP have not been a significant part of their training)

When people learn NLP in a more scripted technique way however, they tend to have a narrower view of what it is and what the possible applications of it are and l’ve seen a lot of people try to stick NLP on to their existing business in a weird way rather than weave it through what they’re already doing. It’s very hard to weave it through every aspect of your life if you haven’t learned at a principle’s level. But this is what we do with it at my courses, from parenting to playing sport, to running a business or getting promoted, to catching a plane, NLP is useful everywhere there are humans involved.

So, it doesn’t have to be a service that you’re adding, unless you want it to be. And setting up shop as an NLP Practitioner is not the main reason people learn NLP.

You can become an absolute life ninja – flexible, adaptable, fast learner and good at helping others to learn, good at getting people on board with ideas, taking action, shifting perspectives, communicating effectively, problem solving, decision making, motivating self and others and leadership… all while working through all your own stuff that’s in the way like limiting beliefs, insecurities and fears, relationship with self, triggers and unhelpful patterns of behaviours.

Be exceptionally good at ‘peopling’ really, inside and out.

With warmth,
