This is our flagship NLP training program.
Unit 1: NLPFUN801 Eperience NLP Fundamentals
This is an introduction to the 22133VIC Graduate Certificate in Neuro-Linguistic Programming including foundations in the new code of NLP. Discover an advanced form of NLP and find out how this technology can be applied to make a real difference in your performance, your learning and your ability to create what you want in your life. How would you like to experience a form of NLP that you can apply naturally and effortlessly into most areas of your life? Dr. John Grinder the co-originator of Neuro-Linguistic Programming has reorganised and extended the original (known as the classic code) into a new form that is simple to learn, is simple to use with yourself, and is simple to apply in your personal and professional life. This new streamlined form of NLP is known as the new code and represents the greatest advance in NLP since its inception in the mid-nineteen seventies.
Unit 2: NLPINF801 Elicit Information and Generate Solutions
In this unit, we study the language patterns people use in daily life. We learn what questions to ask when we need to clarify inaccurate thinking, specify over-generalised ideas and elicit more detail from overly vague statements. We can use this to gather high quality information and direct the personal change processes that follow. These include a New Code approach to change using submodalities, Chris Collingwood’s user friendly do it yourself approach to Grinder’s Six Step Reframe and Jules Collingwood’s state enhancing stalking exercise, along with recoded NLP change processes that now incorporate unconscious choice. We shall learn to change state by choice, bring resources (states, knowledge, beliefs, ideas) into any context and thereby change our behaviour. We can test our work using changes in submodalities as proof that change has occurred. We shall discover how knowing our intent for having or doing something opens up choices for getting there and learn ways to do it by ourselves and with others. From the accreditation document: “This unit describes the knowledge and skills to track patterns in verbal and non-verbal behaviour to expose a new way of thinking, separating attention from story and keeping with pattern. This involves gathering high quality information from others, asking quality questions that lead to sensory based descriptions of human behaviour, gathering information about submodality distinctions that is subjective quality components of internal visualisation, audition and kinaesthesia. It is integrated using the Emergent Discovery Process to bring together the information gathering competencies”.
Unit 3: NLPINT801 Apply Interventions for Optimal Self-Management
In this unit, we learn to communicate in depth with our own and others’ unconscious minds to harness their resources directly to enhance all aspects of observation, communication, choice and change. This includes everything from creating congruent acceptance or rejection of opportunities to producing lasting attitudinal change, to finding lost objects, to identifying life goals, to arranging states of concentration for specific work in specific contexts. We engage the unconscious in practical demonstrations and identify the different functions of conscious and unconscious process. We identify our current appreciation of time, including elapsed time, the passage of time and time management and discover additional ways of experiencing and using time to create effective time management and experiences that are more engaging. From the accreditation document: “This unit describes the knowledge and skills to gather information to track and direct attention in self and others to make respectful and ecological interventions and so facilitate well-formed outcomes and exercise choice”.
Unit 4: NLPMET801 Create Metaphor and Strategies to Support Change and Development
In this unit we learn to recognise, utilise and change sequences of representations to optimise learning, decision-making, self motivation, creativity and other aspects of the thinking and emotion generating process. We also learn to create and deliver metaphor so we can embed useful thinking patterns inside engaging stories. This includes short, suitable metaphors to fit business and concrete environments as well as full-blown fantasy stories for informal occasions and interventions. From the accreditation document: “This unit describes the knowledge and skills to use, compare and contrast detailed elicitation and metaphors to reveal thought patterns and to create metaphor from the patterns that have been elicited”. We learn to use a content free classification system for organising content into classes and sub-classes. This facilitates thinking about any complex issue and enables us to identify related from non-related topics. We engage unconscious resources to make present to future comparisons safe for change with internal representations and submodalities and place the resulting benefits in our personal histories. The intent is to develop facility with the creative process so that we can identify and utilise opportunities in life. From the accreditation document: “This unit describes the knowledge and skills to develop strategies for practical interventions to assist in the experience of the learning and change processes in conjunction with well-formed outcome language patterns, ecology and respect for individuals models of the world”.
“Their integrity and teaching of how to model and see patterns in people’s communication, states of mind and behaviours is far superior, rigorous and comprehensive than any other provider I have trained with. Their graduates are competent in seeing and understanding people’s patterns and in their ability to model and replicate to achieve success. That is also why my senior consultants are all INSPIRITIVE graduates it ensures I have quality, skilled NLP specialists working with me”.
Unit 5: NLPADV801 Apply Advanced Processes of NLP to Personal and Organisational Change
This unit describes the knowledge and skills to develop and apply advanced change processes and information gathering techniques. Participants are invited to discover the NLP patterns underpinning these processes and to revisit the concept that NLP is a discipline and that its applications are products of the body of knowledge.
Unit 6: NLPMOD801 Perform NLP Modelling to Capture Expertise
This unit describes the knowledge and skills to observe and match a live model, observe a modelling session and learn how to incorporate specific tools for eliciting the unconscious elements of expertise in order to elicit and replicate the talent of an expert in the field of their choice.
Unit 7: NLPDES801 Design Advanced NLP Patterns
This unit describes the knowledge and skills to track advanced patterns in people’s speech and behaviour and to distinguish between process and content so they can respond to the patterns with directed interventions in conversation. It enables participants to deconstruct change processes to identify and discover the underlying patterns in them. Participants will gain practical skills in constructing and improvising working interventions using patterns in combination.
Unit 8: NLPOPT801 Optimise Personal and Professional Effectiveness
This unit describes the knowledge and skills to use, compare and contrast different emotional states and so provide them with a package of practical interventions to aid in mapping, upgrading and streamlining the personality. In this unit, there will be opportunities to engage all the skills and processes offered in this program and to apply them in a variety of combinations to effect change.
