How will i learn this?
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a powerful approach. Many people have begun to use NLP for communication, change, and outstanding performance. NLP has been widely applied, with often astonishing results, in many diverse fields, one of which is presentation skills.
One of the most profound ideas of NLP is that, if one person can do something, and if they are doing it at an excellent level -- it should be possible to find out what they’re doing and replicate it. So, NLP is in theory a “modeling” approach for identifying and replicating the unconscious skills of excellent performers then teaching them to others and even learning them yourself.
NLP thus fits well with presentation skills. While this is not a course on NLP, the principles and ideas of NLP are woven into the course material to support and augment your learning. The course is a mixture of classroom learning and practical work. Throughout the training you'll get personal feedforward and coaching to augment and anchor your learning. An extra benefit is the fact that your performance and learning is captured for you on computer to be reviewed after the course – and never viewed by the group during the course.
Who is this course for?
This is a course for anyone who needs to make presentations, speak in public or even meet the press. It is also applicable for teachers and trainers – regardless of skill level or ability – no matter what size group.
