Overview of our NLP Business Practitioner course

The NLP Business Practitioner  is similar to our NLP Practitioner course, and focuses on how you can use NLP techniques specifically in business and the workplace, regardless of whether you work in the public, private or charity sector, as well as covering more general uses.

  • Pre-study.
  • The face-to- face training. This is spread over 4 modules covering 10 days.
  • Assessment and certification. This takes place during the course.

The course is designed to teach you all the practitioner-level NLP techniques, so that you not only know the techniques, but know that you know them and to know how to use them. In order that you can be a truly excellent NLP Practitioner, we also cover what to do in those rare situations when it is NOT appropriate or safe to use NLP. And you’ll really enjoy the course while you’re learning.

And remember, we guarantee that you will get value for money, or we will refund in full..

by a country mile, the best and most useful course I have ever attended.”

David Cordle, business and career coach

Frequently asked questions

NLP Training with The Lazarus Consultancy

How will you learn all this NLP Business Practitioner material in 10 days?

Prior to the course you will receive your own copy of approved audio learning material. All of this is included in the price. The easy to learn pre-study takes around 50-60 hours, all of which you do before the course when and where YOU want, for example while commuting, driving, relaxing or exercising.

During the formal training we touch on some of the theory you will already have learned from the pre-study, and update you with any recent techniques. You therefore spend much of the classroom time on practical exercises, “actually getting it in the muscle”.

The trainers and the coaching assistants will be there to give you feedback and support to heighten your proficiency. In addition, on the final day you will have the opportunity to integrate all you have learned on the course.
