Benefits of NLP training

Neuro-Linguistic Programming training and coaching can help us increase our leadership, communication, and influence skills. In turn, these can lead to achieving what we want and having a  significantly more successful and fulfilled life.

The process of good NLP training will tune up our communication and influence skills with others and help build our own resilience, emotional intelligence, and mental and behavioural flexibility.

NLP amplifies our leadership, management, sales, coaching, networking and relationship skills. The benefits of NLP skills also apply to counselling, therapy, and our work and personal lives.

How do you achieve the top-level benefits mentioned above? We work with our clients to explore and implement best practices with the following 12 building blocks of NLP, each of which brings significant benefits on its own. These benefits apply to business, leading to better leadership, project management, sales, coaching and, in turn, better results.

Building our Personal Success System

Success in life is very much about developing a ‘success system’ of which goals are part. One of our favourite success systems, of which there are many, is DUFF.

DUFF includes Direction, Use of time, energy and attention on a daily basis, and setting up Feedback and Feed-forward loops.

Setting Frames

There is an old saying which is applicable to most areas of life: ‘Whoever sets the rules wins.’ How do we set the frame or rules? How do we find out what the rules are?

Leading and Managing our Emotional State

Our emotional state impacts how we come over to others and how easily we can access our resources.  The more we can lead our emotional state, the more we can lead and influence ourselves and others.

Increasing Rapport and Trust when Appropriate

Increasing rapport and trust means we can influence others more, however, sometimes, we want to reduce the influence they have over us, so it’s helpful to be able to both increase and reduce rapport.

Setting our Direction, Outcomes and Goals

Be clear about the direction we’re aiming for; otherwise, we’re likely to go around in circles and be over-influenced by people around us. Direction, outcomes, and goals all have their uses; however, they are often taught incorrectly. NLP has developed an approach to align our purpose, values, and direction and uses outcomes and goals to help us move forward in the direction we want.

Asking Great Questions

There are many good reasons to ask questions; three examples are:

  • To find out information
  • To influence
  • To change our partner’s state

However, to ask great questions, we need to know the following:

  • what to ask
  • the way to ask it, and
  • when to ask

to get the best impact.

Getting to There

Helping our clients navigate their journey from here to there may be more complex than both our clients, and we realise. NLP gives us a wide selection of approaches to help navigate our journey.

Future Pacing

Future pacing is a potent form of mental rehearsal, which enables us to improve our performance in many critical future events – from interviews and meetings to sports.


The beliefs or assumptions we have or make about ourselves, the people we interact with, and the environment we work in can help us or hinder us. Some beliefs are true: I’m likely to die if I fall out of an aeroplane without a parachute. However, other beliefs are likely to be self-fulfilling: if I believe I’m going to be successful, I’m more likely to take action and pick myself up quickly when I fall over – both of which are significant indicators of success.


Stories are a compelling way of influencing both ourselves and others. We explore and develop the structure of influential stories.


What are the internal and external steps we take to generate a good performance in any context? Understanding these enables us to remove blocks and improve the results we get.


Exploring hypnosis and developing our hypnotic skills amplifies our communication and influence, and self-hypnosis increases our alignment and influence over ourselves.


NLP is a modelling discipline: being curious about what works and how we can improve it. The models we’ve developed help us communicate these to others.
