Special offers, and my 7 top tips, marking 15 years of NLP training and coaching from The Lazarus Consultancy

NLP Practice Group

Saturday’s NLP Practice group was particularly vibrant and creative. Whilst we usually cover three or four specific NLP topics, on Saturday we covered five (albeit a couple were brief discussions), as well as covering in a coaching circle two challenges that attendees faced, the Heroes Journey and doing a GROW-model based coaching exercises which also addressed questioning techniques. All of this in just four hours!

Topics Covered:

  1. Using Meta Programmes in teams and when facilitating groups.
  2. Perceptual Positions, in three contexts apart from the traditional one of seeing other perspectives whilst coaching an individual.

– Using PPs to change limiting beliefs,

– Using PPs to address negative emotions when Time Line techniques are not appropriate,

– Using PPs, in conjunction with the Disney Model, for groups/teams to help them see the perspective of clients and to generate creative ideas for problems solving.

  1. Milton Model: A brief discussion about how to become even more adept at using these language patterns in everyday situations, not just when hypnotising people.
  2. Anchoring: A brief discussion about how to use anchoring with groups and teams.
  3. Coaching circle. One person wanted to seek the group’s wisdom regarding becoming an even more effective guest teacher with some ‘interesting’ students. Another wanted some ideas about dealing with a very challenging executive at work.
  4. There was a 25 minute coaching session using the GROW model as a structure. As part of the exercise, before asking the question the coach told the observer the question and the purpose of the question, and the observer could suggest alternatives up to three times during the session. This ‘made’ the coach consider the question, and helped focus their attention on asking the most useful question.
  5. We briefly looked at the Heroes Journey (Joseph Campbell and Carol Pearson). Delegates could see how these principles were present in their life, and how they could use the overall ideas when coaching their clients through a challenging period.

All in all, a very full and interesting session – I certainly had to be on my toes to keep up with these guys!

The next NLP Practice Groups are on Saturday 11 July and 17 October 2015 from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm. Open to all NLP Practitioners and above. £25 in advance, £30

What our students and clients say

Ivona Gordon

Jeremy has a unique approach to bringing out the best in people. He certainly practices what he preaches!  Jeremy is one of a handful of trainers/coaches/practitioners that I would, without any hesitation, recommend to others.  He is knowledgeable, ethical and shows genuine passion for the work he does and how best to serve others.

Mel Larsen

Before doing the NLP course, I had felt I needed more coaching approaches and methodologies. The course gave me a lot of new techniques which I have used to help my coaching clients. Also I was launching my new coaching brand as I was doing the programme and looking back I can see it helped me to set big targets and reach them.

Donna de Villiers

I have had the pleasure of studying with Jeremy, and the NLP he has taught has had a wonderful impact on my personal and professional life.  Jeremy explains NLP in an accessible, easy, manner and for me took away the fluff of the subject.  The practical help on the courses and the smaller classes give you a personal learning environment, perfect for this subject.  I highly recommend Jeremy for anyone interested in NLP.

Simon Fanning

I found the course to be enlightening both personally and professionally.  Jeremy’s experience of the corporate world allowed for a real life perspective to be taken and a focused view into NLP and its application in Business and coaching.

Dave Cordle

I’ve undertaken three major trainings with Jeremy: NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and most recently NLP Sports Practitioner. I keep coming back because the training is thorough, ethical and ecological, and it’s academically recognized. As a career coach I work with people at all stages of their career, across levels and across a wide range of industries.

Dara Caryotis

I feel privileged to have discovered NLP, it has changed my life. Understanding communication, the impact of language and being able to change unwanted behaviours has been the difference that made the difference for me.  Jeremy is so much more than an NLP Master Trainer.  It is a powerful rewarding experience learning and evolving with Jeremy. I highly recommend studying with Jeremy, one of my best decisions.
