2011, what a significant year already

2011 has got all the glaring signs of an unforgettable year!

We really hope that you and your family are safe and sound, wherever you are while reading our first newsletter for this year – 2011. The library room where we normally meet for NLP Café in Brisbane (in New Farm) was affected by the flood, but is now Ok.

Who'd ever think that they would take the time to learn mirroring while so busy with floods, cyclones and armies and the like.

There are Silver Linings in Life

We are certainly very grateful that amidst all the challenges in life, that we are able to use NLP to create options, change our emotional states and step into different perspectives in life.  Silver linings are everywhere; they come in all shapes and forms, dashed with rainbow colours.  The most exciting discovery when faced with challenges is to spot the opportunities that otherwise would not have been noticed in life.

New Opportunities

One of such opportunity has offered us the chance to provide NLP trainings on the weekend, a format that has been very successful and to create a NLP Skill Development Workbook for all students.  We are delighted to have found a way to help students generalise their NLP skills into real life contexts that bring about immediate impact in their life.  The result of the weekend training format has seen our students developing deeper level of skills with enough time to integrate their skills.

Get in quick!

Due to changing situations, we are likely to only offer one more NLP Foundations, and one NLP Practitioner Certification and the one NLP New Code Practitioner Courses in Brisbane, this year.  All of the trainings will be in the Weekend Format this year.  We are also considering delivering the NLP Master Practitioner in the weekend format this year as well and would like to focus on our current group of student’s development to facilitate their growth fully.

We will not be able to deliver overseas training this year, this includes various cities in New Zealand, but this is only temporary.

Last Chance to Sign up to become a highly trained NLP Practitioner this year!

This will be the first of the greatly successful and convenient weekend trainings we are offering, and now for the first time with the NLP Certification part of the training too.

NLP Café will be restarting in Feb 2011

For NLP Café Brisbane this year, we will be very focused on foundation pattern practice and will be running a special hypnosis practice series as well as Open Coaching sessions.  See our Schedule/Calendar of events for more details.

NLP Tip for the day: How to learn NLP well

Feb 072011
Climbing the ladder of your own success

By Sonya Yeh Spencer, Certified ITA NLP Trainer

Over the years we often have people asking about the “trick” to learning NLP well. I think the “trick” is to work with the way our brain codes your learning experience, creates understanding and insight into subject matter. The key to mastery is “familiarisation” of the skills that you are acquiring. This means you need to practice, practice and practice some more. In fact you need to practice in a specific way, and here is the low down, based on training and our own learning experience:

Focus on applying NLP on yourself first, and others second!

Before you start applying NLP to others, please do it to yourself first. Along the way to self mastery, you need to build up some critical skills to be effective. We call them the Critical Skill Builders:

  • Your ability to manage and work with your own emotional state
  • Your ability to build rapport rapidly with yourself and others
  • Your ability to calibrate people’s unconscious signals accurately and testing them
  • Your ability to self evaluate your own performance from 3rd and identify what needs to change

Notice the “difference that makes the difference”

Humanity, the people

This article also may give an insight into the author’s experience of powerlessness, subjective experiences, impact of environment, process of depersonalization, impact of segregation, mortification, self-labeling, and (in the opinion of the original authors) counter-therapeutic which may be of [Read more…]
