NLP Business Diploma Training

Our NLP Business Diploma lays the foundations for building Collaborative Relationships

Our ANLP Accredited NLP Business Diploma is a four-day trainer led masterclass into the essentials of Collaborative Working using NLP

On this NLP Business Diploma you are introduced to our 4 quadrant approach to developing Collaborative Working

Why focus on Collaborative Working?

Over our 25+ years working with clients the most challenging assignments we have been involved with are ones aimed at developing a Collaborative Culture. When you master collaborative working you will master all other relationship dynamics.

Working in Collaboration with others requires a totally different Mindset and new Behaviours.

Our suite of Collaborative Working programmes are based on our extensive experience of major projects.

Our comprehensive suite of NLP services means we can cater for all needs and all outcomes

On this Diploma Level programme we introduce you to the Key Mindset & Behavioural skills that build Collaborative Relationships

Our 4 Quardants

The mindset of each individual involved in a collaborative relationship impacts on the ultimate success of the common goal.  Creating a common sense of purpose and aligning each individual around the current goal is a vital step.  Often, it is possible that individuals hold on to negative experiences and this ultimately builds a dysfunctional aspect in the relationship.  Anything that impacts on TRUST will damage collaboration.

Behaviour and language are the key components of a successful collaborative relationship.  Developing the behaviours and the communication techniques are at the core of our approach.  The more you demonstrate the competent use of collaborative behaviour the more rapidly TRUST will build.  This has a significant impact on the efficiency savings achieved through a collaborative approach.  Get this wrong and stalemate will result.

NLP Business Diploma Behaviours
NLP Business Diploma Culture

The Culture of your collaborative relationship is the sum of all the Mindsets and Behaviours of all the individuals.  Compounded by the agreed Values and Agreed Purpose of the Collaborative relationship.  Sustaining a healthy collaborative culture requires collaborative leadership…a different style of leadership to your traditional approach to team leadership.

As one lawyer informed a Commercial Director of a Client on a project we were involved with, ‘You can sue your contractor and you’ll still have a tunnel to build’.  So the lawyer’s advice was to focus on building the relationship rather than look for ways to score points.  This is where our 4 Quadrants add value.

Why attend this NLP Business Diploma?

How does the programme work?

As you can imagine, your journey starts the moment you make contact with us. With 16 years experience in training NLP we know a thing or two about engaging people.

The NLP Business Diploma is accredited by ANLP, so we adhere to their strict certification standards. We were also initially accredited by INLPTA, the standard setter for the curriculum of this Diploma. You know you will get a through and detailed introduction to NLP.

To achieve your certificate you will be expected to pass all our ongoing assessments during the programme. These are our essential means of assessing your ethics, standards of practice and your intent. We only certify delegates with a desire to use NLP with a positive intent and who demonstrate ethical and professional conduct at all time.

Your NLP Business Diploma Learning Process

Before you attend your first day we would expect you to have sampled the recommended reading list, we’re not strict on this. It’s your development, it’s upto you how much reading you do.

You will also receive a ‘written integration’ paper prior to the start of the workshop. This is a short question and answer document where you can start developing your knowledge of the field of NLP. The answers to the questions will all be in the recommended reading list. We start each day reviewing the written integration, sharing and learning within the group. We believe in developing your knowledge as well as your practise.

Each day is a combination of theory, demonstrations and practising. The key to learning NLP is ‘doing with’ others. You will spend a lot of time practising with each other and being supervised by your trainer and assistants. Feedback from your trainer will hone and refine your skills.

Finally after the specified 30 hours of classroom tuition and having satisfied your trainer that you can practise your skills ethically with positive intent you will receive your ANLP Diploma in NLP.

This certificate opens you the community of the ANLP, the largest professional network for NLP in the UK. You can find out more about ANLP on their website.
