An Introduction to NLP


1 day


Do you ever set yourself goals that you know you really have no intention of achieving? Do you find yourself getting in to the same arguments over and over again? Have you ever wondered if your colleagues really do come from another planet?! If so, this is the event for you. It has been designed to give you an understanding of what NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is all about and more importantly what it can do for you. During the sessions you will learn some great techniques and useful tips to take away with you. You will also get a greater understanding of NLP and also how you can take your personal development further. Workshops will be challenging but fun with lots of opportunity for interaction, practice and learning reinforcement.
