5 Reasons Why More Coaches Are Using NLP

"When I saw these tools (NLP) could really help people create changes in minutes which previously took months or years, I became an evangelist in my approach to them."

- Anthony Robbins
World's No. 1 Success Coach

Coaching is a very rewarding career, not just because of how much a coach gets paid for his service; but more importantly, how he/she can help people move towards their lives' aspirations.

Anyone with some communication skills can call him/herself a coach, but we all know that it takes much more than that to be a really competent one.

Here are 5 compelling reasons why an increasing number of coaches are now using NLP in their practice:

1. Get Through to the Emotional Brain First

Human beings are emotional first and logical second.

Often times people know logically what is best for themselves, but they just couldn’t get themselves to take the right action because they were held back by strong emotions.

NLP’s emotional management techniques gives a coach the tools to lead clients out of negative emotions before dealing with cognitive reframing or making plans to move forward.

2. Increased Sensory Acuity

In any communication, as opposed to just the verbal words, the most important information comes from non-verbals, more specifically, the tone of voice and body language.

NLP training helps a coach easily pick up such important information as the client relates his/her issues. The coach is then able to formulate more intelligent questions to uncover the thought processes, feelings, values and beliefs of the client, eventually helping the client create plans for progress.

3. Modelling & Replicating Excellent Strategies

Modelling lies at the heart of NLP. Various forms of excellence in sports, selling, training, creativity, leadership and influence can be broken down into actionable frameworks and/or processes. The modeller can then easily replicate these steps, or teach it to others.

A coach can easily use NLP modeling to help the client improve their public speaking, negotiation, selling, interviews, or even start a business.

4. Ask better questions with Neuro-Linguistic Coaching

For a long time, linguists marveled many people with their ability to pick up language patterns in a conversation that were connected to brain assumptions. For example, language patterns that signify judging, generalization, or unconscious twisting of facts.

Based on these information, they were then able to ask good probing questions to challenge these assumptions, which often led to helping the person gain self-awareness of his problems, and opening him up to new possibilities.

Thanks to NLP modeling, this is now available to NLP coaches. It is definitely an added advantage to help a coach build his core competency of question asking.

5. Facilitate Powerful Mental Preparation

Through NLP’s visualization and mental rehearsal, a coach can help the client ahead of time for an important occasion.

Mental rehearsals help a person form the neuro-pathways that create the possibility of accomplishing the desired actions. When the step-by-step details are played out and reinforced with repetitions, it increases confidence as well as the success rate of any performance.

If you are a coach or aspire to be one, NLP can take your career to the next level

You will learn a range of powerful techniques and tools that can be used in various facets of your life aside from coaching, such as:

  • a 5-step coaching diagnostic tool
  • the structure of language patterns and good questioning
  • 3 advanced communication and rapport building techniques
  • 4 emotion management techniques
  • how changing a few words in your speech can create a world of difference in your communication
  • how to give feedback and suggestions that people will be receptive to
  • mental rehearsal techniques that enhance your real-time performances

"Initially I was sceptical as Neuro Linguistic Programming appeared to be manipulative. My perception changed after Mind Transformations' NLP Practitioner Course. I use NLP to help people get on with their work and lives, playing a mentoring and coaching role. I derive tremendous satisfaction from it."

"I recommend Barney's NLP Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner programmes above any others in Singapore. I not only had a fun time, I notice Barney's students appear to have a much wider skill set than any of his competitors. That's partly because Barney puts so much of himself into them, I think. All trainers/coaches will want to avail themselves of his expertise."
