Coaching is defined as “enabling clients to shift their perspectives and thereby discover different solutions to achieve their goals”.
Change management is defined as “a structured approach to shifting/transitioning individuals, teams, and organisations from a current state to a desired future state”
The common element is the change of perspective or state.
Coaching for Change is a set of tools to develop belief and behaviour change and to gain commitment by overcoming resistance.
NLP Coaching has a distinct advantage over other forms of coaching as it enable the client to congruently achieve the objectives established in their coaching plan. NLP offers coaches the ability to tailor selected interventions to take into account the client’s unconscious mind where both resources and incongruities are present.
If you are already trained in NLP and want to explore the uses and possibilities of coaching, either in your personal or professional life, this is the ideal course for you. NLP is the perfect foundation from which to build your coaching skills.
