So I had this call …
Since it’s Practitioner Season, no surprise that was the subject of the discussion. The bottom line question was ‘should the caller take the Practitioner program starting September 25, or go for the Breakthrough Coaching?’ A great question.
How Would You Decide?
Sometimes the best answer to a question really is another question. In this case, there are three I ask.
- Are you feeling stuck in some area of your life right now?
- Do you have any behaviours, habits, or beliefs that are blocking your success, happiness or satisfaction with life?’
- And most importantly, if you answered yes to either of these, how urgently do you need to move on?
I have had people call me and say ‘I’ve been given 30 days to change (my behaviour/my attitude/my results) or I’ll lose my job.’
Many times the very people who are most competent, even brilliant in their own area of expertise, have the least easy time integrating into some work environments.
When it’s 30 days or else
Sometimes it’s a job-fit issue (think hiring miss-take), or interpersonal conflicts (read lack of attention to soft skills.) Or it could be timing as in over due for a change or stressed out. Whatever …. These are all good reasons to go for the Performance Breakthrough Coaching.
Breakthrough sessions are a quick and very dependable way of changing habits, beliefs and behaviours in a short period of time. They’re easy to schedule around your time and my availability, because they’re one-to-one sessions. Just remember that rather than learning new skills, you’ll be getting results. Even in extreme situations.
When evolution works
If life is going smoothly right now and you’re just looking to pick up the pace, the Practitioner program is well worth your time. Because dollar for dollar, hour for hour, it is one of the best investments you can make in the rest of your life. (Well I would say that wouldn’t I?) But wait …
I can’t tell you how often participants take me aside half way through the program and say ‘I’ve been meaning to take this training for years … just never got around to it. Now, I wish I’d learned this stuff 20 years ago. What a difference it would have made in my life!’
So you decide
When change is no longer an option, take the Breakthrough session. You can always come back for the Practitioner training later (and around 50% of my clients do.) When you want all the NLP tools, and you’re curious about experiencing the world from different perspectives, you’re ready for the NLP Practitioner certification program.
