The human mind is astonishingly powerful.  The way we think has a direct impact on the outcomes we achieve in all situations, both in our professional and personal lives.  

This course will focus on how we can harness the power of our minds to achieve the results we are looking for, to build successful and productive relationships, and to communicate and influence even more effectively.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is the study of human excellence – and over the course of the two days we will cover a number of practical and effective NLP tools and techniques which will enable participants to become even more successful, persuasive and influential in the workplace and beyond.  We will also explore the structure and function of the human brain, and the links between NLP and research in the field of neuroscience.

This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in personal development, in particular how to develop more productive behaviour patterns, communicate more effectively with a wide range of people, and achieve more positive outcomes in all aspects of their lives.  This course will also be of benefit to supervisors and managers who wish to improve their success through others.
