NLP Master Practitioner training is not just about deepening knowledge and skill levels, it’s also about developing the wisdom that enables you to generate greater clarity and real understanding, for oneself and your clients.

I highly recommend the College and the trainers.  Tony, Mel and Chris are very knowledgeable and supportive with lots of experience in NLP and Coaching. This course was engaging, thought-provoking and well-structured.  Because the training sessions were organised over six months, it allowed me to embed and reflect on what I was learning. By the end, I had gone on a transformational journey. I have more focus, more drive and have started my journey to becoming a professional coach. ~ Dean Wolfers

Developing NLP and Coaching mastery means you go from simply following procedures to designing purposeful action and fresh ways of working as you bring together the different elements of your experience with the new knowledge and experience you will gain as a result of this training programme.

Our world-class trainers will introduce you to some of the latest thinking in NLP change work and its applications in coaching as well as profound personal and professional development models and applications.

Psychometric Profiling:

A key part of the NLP Master Practitioner is the exploration and application of Meta programmes. To enrich this learning experience all delegates will be invited to complete the iWAM profiling tool. Unlike other tests, iWAM does not put people in boxes: each person has a unique fingerprint of motivational and attitudinal patterns.

The iWAM profiler helps you to understand what motivates you and what makes a good day at work – why some tasks are “easy” and others require more effort. It recommends motivational language to be used – or avoided.  iWAM compares one’s results to a standard group to provide invaluable information about how others actually perceive you as well as showing you how to adapt to be better understood.

Participation in this training course will give you your very own iWAM Psychometric Profiling Report and let you sample our award-winning psychometric profiling service (AI Business Excellence Awards 2016).

The UKCPD NLP Master Practitioner training course is without doubt one of the most interesting courses I have ever attend. The trainers are extremely knowledgeable and are really engaging when delivering the course content. The experiential component of the course was really helpful in terms of honing my skills and knowledge and also putting theory into practice. The trainers are very passionate about NLP and it’s contagious. I highly recommend this course. ~ Rose Mahon

Success Factor Modelling

Another key feature of this Award-Winning programme is the focus of developing the entrepreneurial spirit using the Success Factor Modelling ™ (SFM™) toolkit. The SFM process is a unique approach to competency building originated and developed by Robert & John Dilts. The SFM process is designed to identify and apply the critical success factors necessary to promote a new business idea or personal passion project. It’s often said that “to make a living following one’s own passion” is a dream of many people.

Such a passion may be in the area of coaching, consulting, NLP, training, or some other product or service in which a person believes. This passion emerges from the deep desire to feel that “instead of just doing a job, I am living my life and making a difference.” Starting a new business or project, however, can also feel like quite a daunting task. There are many obstacles and challenges to face. People often hold themselves back out of lack of knowledge, fear of failure and other forms of self-doubt.

The purpose of this programme is to provide participants with the road maps and tools necessary to develop the confidence, competence and resources necessary to launch their own business or internal organisational project and begin living their dreams while also making a better world.

The programme is based on the principles and discoveries of Success Factor Modelling™ (SFM™). During this powerful training, you will learn and discover critical success factors which enable individuals to live their dreams and at the same time contribute to making a better world through projects and businesses.

The focus of this advanced NLP content is on applying Success Factor Modelling™ to become an effective “entrepreneur.” An entrepreneur, in this sense, means anyone who has an idea or project that he or she would like to see become a viable reality. The programme emphasizes the importance of developing an “entrepreneurial spirit” and applying Success Factor Modelling™ to identify some of the key patterns of inspiring and successful entrepreneurs. A core goal of this programme to help participants become more confident, innovative, proactive and generative.

The activities centre around learning more about who you are and identifying an entrepreneurial project that is an expression of your deepest passion connected to your vision for a better life, and perhaps even a better world.

This training will be delivered by Tony Nutley, Tony was one of the original participants in the ground-breaking training with Robert & John Dilts becoming a Certified SFM Entrepreneur and a Member of the SFM Generative Venture Community in 2004.

If you have considered taking your NLP and Coaching skills and develop a business or new entrepreneurial project then this training content will give you a comprehensive toolkit to create, develop and launch your project.

For me, this course was life changing, inspiring and outstanding!  In addition to the vast amount of learning being delivered, the training team delivering the course content are supportive, extremely knowledgeable, and as labelling as it is, “amazing”.   This course really did take me to a higher level of learning, knowledge, and insight that ultimately enables me to help my clients and enhance my career in a powerful, positive and forward-thinking way. ~ Paula Bolton
