Optimise your career with our nationally accredited NLP program

At Inspiritive we are constantly striving to adapt our training programs to the latest trends in the corporate world so you, our clients, can derive the most relevant possible results in regards to current trends.

According to a recent article published by Forbes magazine the skills employers most value in employees at and potential hiring prospect include the ability to communicate verbally with people inside and outside an organisation.

Employers also want new hires to have technical knowledge related to the job but that’s not nearly as important as good teamwork decision-making and communication skills and the ability to plan and prioritise work.” the article emphases.

According this article here are the 5 skills employers say they seek in order of importance:

1. Ability to work in a team structure
2. Ability to make decisions and solve problems
3. Ability to communicate verbally with people inside and outside an organization
4. Ability to plan, organise and prioritise work
5. Ability to obtain and process information

The article goes on to say further emphasise that “No matter what you have studied in school, whether anthropology or French or computer science you will have had to learn the top five skills on the list“.

These top 5 skills are at the core of what our syllabus is at the NAT10790 Graduate Certificate NLP and here is how you can optimise your career with NLP.

Part 1 – Learn proven models of excellence

Part 1 is a comprehensive, skill-based course in the essential abilities of people who excel at what they do. John Grinder and Richard Bandler (the founders of NLP) identified and modelled these patterns of effective thinking, behaviour and communication. They learned to reproduce these skills in their own behaviour (modelling) and then described them explicitly so others could learn and apply these patterns. These skills form the basis of Part 1 of the course.

This course is a rigorous, experiential training that empowers you to create lasting, sustainable change in your life. This is achieved by teaching you to work with real situations, problems and experiences. Course elements include presentations, demonstrations, guided exercises and practice. Feedback and discussion sessions will help you achieve results through immersion in the NLP experience. Partner and group activities are designed to provide you with memorable learning and evidence of your NLP mastery through contact with other people.

Each student on Part 1 will receive a copy of The NLP Field Guide: Part 1, by Jules and Chris Collingwood and Part 2 students will receive a comprehensive training manual.

Units Part 1, 

Part 2 – Create your own models of excellence

If you can create your own models of human excellence, you have the leverage to learn any skill you choose. This is the emphasis of Part 2. Acquisition of excellence in any endeavour lends itself to creating a model, not a theory. Being able to model equips you with the means to create your own NLP applications instead of depending solely on those developed by other people.

You will learn formal self-modelling by exploring, transforming and developing your self-concept. This element of the Graduate Certificate in NLP is for personal development and working with others.

You have an opportunity to explore experientially, model and then make explicit significant patterns, perceptual filters and values which are present in your maps of self, your self-concept. Participants then have the opportunity to work with each other to transform any limiting patterns.

Making NLP a life skill

All of Inspiritive’s NLP certification courses are structured around the core competency of NLP modelling. We model what we teach and create contexts for you to discover the patterns in action. You will experience the patterns through exercises, games and tasks.

This has been called the emergent approach to learning NLP. It enables students to communicate spontaneously and naturally, with their own style and vocabulary. We respond flexibly to the patterns we observe in other people’s communication instead of relying on scripted techniques or conscious formats.

Our emphasis is always on replicating the skill or pattern in question, not talking about it or reproducing a scripted format. As a result you will experience emerging NLP patterning in your daily life, from which appropriate understanding then follows.

Chris Collingwood managing director of Inspiritive

“Traditionally, psychology has been about studying the norm, but NLP deliberately focuses on the exceptions. It provides a methodology for modelling excellence in human behaviour”.

Chris Collingwood,Managing Director and Head Trainer INSPIRITIVE
