Why does it take so long?
So I was having lunch with a friend yesterday and he asked why the Innergize NLP Practitioner Certification was a full 12 days. And that’s a $64,000 question.
After all, we live in an on-demand world. Information is available instantly on the web. Multi-tasking is a badge of honour and our attention spans shorten year by year. Or does it just seem that way to me?
How You’ll Learn NLP
So … why 12 days?
- There is a lot of content, a lot of essential details that do make a difference. Digesting the information over many days means more nights to sleep on in. When you sleep, information you were exposed to during the day moves from short term memory into long term memory. (Well documented by research in accelerated learning.)
- I’ll be sharing NLP secrets with you, nuances usually only trainers know, because they are often the difference that makes the difference in challenging situations. Like succeeding with the people in your life who will want to challenge your new skills.
- You’ll learn NLP five ways, from 5 different perspectives. These are the keys to integrating NLP into your everyday behaviour, because it takes more that intellectual knowing to get results with NLP. After your first weekend with Innergize you will be using it. Even your friends will notice.
And here’s why
Perhaps you’ve read some books, listened to tapes, CDs, even taken a short workshop. Or you know someone who has. And noticed that some things work, make sense, others don’t. So what gives?
Five ways, 5 perspectives
To really use NLP I’ve found you need to experience it on five levels.
- You need to learn the content consciously. What you’re doing and how to layer in each element for maximum impact.
- Your unconscious mind needs the information too. In a format that is easily taken into your mental programming, in a way that respects you and your unique personality. Now, you’re ready for experience. You’ll practice the skills in small chunks layering in more and more pieces over time.
- You’ll learn by practicing the skills with a partner. Try them on and observe the effect, test your results and use feedback to adjust your technique.
- You’ll learn by experiencing the effect of the techniques, how it feels when they’re working and when they’re out of sync.
- You’ll learn by observering others practice. You’ll see the effects, noticing what’s working from moment-by-moment. Bonus!! (Okay, I forgot one.)
- You’ll learn by sharing your experience and asking questions after each practice session. What worked well, what needs fine tuning. Questions about applying the techniques in situations in your own life.
And did I mention the coaching? Small class size means you’ll receive individual attention from the trainer. Read all about the fall 2008 NLP Practitioner Training Certification Program.
