Live training Accelerator Day

Day 1 : Ann Skidmore

Establishing a close rapport with the client is crucial in any coaching relationship. A skilled NLP coach can achieve this in minutes, with knowledge of the range of verbal and non-verbal cues that can help to build trust. In ìSetting up the Client Relationshipî youíll also learn the vital skill of getting a client to tell you their story without it taking hours!

Body language is perhaps the best-known of these non-verbal cues. The ability to interpret a clientís body language can really boost the speed at which coach-client rapport is developed, and the efficiency with which clients can be helped to move forward towards their goals. A clientís thoughts and feelings can ìleakî through body language, highlighting to the attentive coach barriers and beliefs that limit the client in moving forward. Once identified, the coach can set about helping the client to manage those barriers ñ the beliefs, thoughts and emotions that stop them from getting where they want to go. You will be introduced to incredibly useful quick-fix tools for managing the emotions that a client can trust as a resource whenever they need it.

Trained NLP coaches understand how brains work. We all filter new thoughts and ideas through a mesh created of past beliefs and experiences, and this affects our behaviour in the present and our choices for the future. As coaching is such a future-focused activity, aiming to head towards and then achieve a desired outcome, NLP coaches use their knowledge of the workings of the mind to help eliminate obstacles created by past experiences. During this live training day you will also think about the difference between the conscious and the unconscious mind.

Day 2 : Sarah Urquhart

Successful coaching depends on successful goal-setting. A significant attribute of the perfect goal for your client is that it supports their life values. In this way goal setting can support and enhance everything that the client does.

It obviously follows that it is vital for you as a coach to understand the clientís values. What is driving their decision making? How do the clientís values affect their actions and behaviour? As a coach your own life values may be considerably different to those of your client, but it is easy to see that the perfect goal needs to match the clientís view of the world rather than your own, as it is the client who needs to take the action.

A key strand of NLP is the need to use language at its most precise. If you are to effectively support clients, using language with precision will enable you to clarify goals, challenge your client to be utterly precise about their intentions to move forward, and reframe ideas and situations.

On this live training day you will also be introduced to the mind of one of the greatest and most creative of people ñ Walt Disney. In terms of goals the aim here is to learn strategies for creative goal-setting. Creative goals are often inspiring ones, the goals that lead to maximum commitment and therefore success.

Day 3 : Ann Skidmore

During a training day that is full of great exercises you will learn to uncover some of the barriers to performance that are stopping clients from moving forward to achieving their desired goal. Until you and your client are clear about the reality of their situation, how can you set about improving it?

For instance, many clients need coaching to help them improve relationships. The exercises we learn today will help them do just that ñ whether they are in challenging personal relationships, or being bullied at work, or in a situation of long-term conflict that they just cannot resolve. For a client with this kind of issue, the superb coaching you will be able to provide could be a wonderful solution to an overwhelming problem.

Many clients behave in ways that they themselves donít fully understand. Perhaps there are unconscious drivers to that behaviour. In uncovering these you can proceed with your client firstly to understanding and then changing behaviour. You will also be able to help your clients understand the behaviour of others, which can be vital in establishing better personal relationships.

A further vital learning today is in the area of internal conflict. How often do we find ourselves seeming to take one step forward only to take two steps back? Itís a common problem, but it can be that we are caught in a trap of our own making. By examining our own internal conflicts we have the chance to settle them and move on with determination and confidence.
