Course Syllabus:

Day 1:

Introduction to the NLP communication model – From inputting information through our senses and processing that information to the system outputs of our emotional states and behavior, learn how communication works within individuals such as yourself as well as from person to person.

Sensory Representations – Gain awareness of the typically subconscious ‘language of the mind’ and how we subconsciously communicate within ourselves and to others. Learn why some of your communications have not been working as well as build skills to communicate more effectively with a larger range of people.

Meta-representational system of language – Learn how we use symbols and code (i.e. language) to represent (at an even higher level) the sensory representations in our mind, and become more effective in your spoken and written communications.

Levels of referencing and representing – Gain understanding about the never ending self-reflexive chain of our thoughts about our thoughts and how to gain awareness and control over this process in yourself and others.

Eye Accessing Cues – The eyes are the windows to the soul, well, at least they are the windows to our internal processing.  Learn how to recognize and utilize the secret clues that give you insight into the minds of the people with whom you communicate with.

Day 2:
Mind-Body States -  Neuro-Linguistic states and Neuro-Semantic states – What are states, how do they work and learn valuable skills and strategies to gain access to your resourceful states in the moments when you need them.

Calibrating states – Skills to gain ever increasing sensory acuity in recognizing the mind-body states of others and the subtle shifts in those states that may be meaningful.

Rapport building – Rapport is the foundation of all relationships, relationships within your self as well as with others. It is easy to communicate with people who are like you. Gain valuable skills and tools to increase your flexibility in relating with just about anybody, even people who are unlike you or people that you may have found puzzling.

Anchoring in all sensory systems – Gain the skill to put yourself into the resourceful state of your choice in an instant, as well as the power to give this tool to others that you come in contact with.

Recognize and utilize ‘sub-modalities’ - Gain skill in controlling the typically unconscious structures of the movies in your mind and take control over your habitual states and ultimately your future.

Day 3:

Meta-Model – The 12 linguistic distinctions of the Meta-Model and the Precision questions for uncovering specificity – Do you ever speak to yourself in a way that is unresourceful? Do others around you speak in an unresourceful way at times? Have you ever been involved in a misunderstanding or had trouble getting your message across? Gain skill in taking the meta-representational system of your language and bringing it back to the experience that it was meant to describe in order to find more useful descriptions and ultimately create a more resourceful reality for yourself and for others.

Advanced Goal Setting techniques – If you don’t know or care where you are heading then it doesn’t matter which choices you make in life. If you are unclear about your desired outcomes in life you will get unclear results.  Beyond SMART goals, the NLP goal setting skills put you in the drivers seat when it comes to making the future that you desire into a reality, and all of your outcomes along the way.

Meta-Programs – Gain awareness and understanding about the habitual patterns of thinking that you have developed throughout your life and how they differ from the patterns of others.  These patterns are the structure of Personality.  Gain skill in detecting your own patterns and expanding your possibilities for personal and professional growth, and gain skill in recognizing the patterns of others to communicate to them in a way that builds rapport and understanding while breaking through communication barriers.

Basic NLP Patterns – Learn, practice, and gain skill in the following processes from NLP:



Pacing and Leading

Eye Accessing

Triple Description  - Perceptual Positioning


Circle of Excellence

Move Rewind (Trauma Relief, Fast Phobia Cure, VK Dissociation)

Eliciting States

Collapsing Anchors

Meta-Model of Language: Patterns of deletion, generalization and distortion

Expanding Meta-Programs

Well-Formed Outcome

Day 4 -  Advanced Communication Essentials:

Meta-States - The Meta-States model of Neuro-Semantics has been called "the model that ate NLP".  Meta-States (Neuro-Semantic states) go beyond our typical mind-body states and set our frame-of-references that govern all of the lower levels.  When we think about our thoughts or feel about our feelings, the higher thought organizes and modulates all of the thoughts contained within, which makes them much more powerful and pervasive than our lower level mind-body states. The quality of our states and especially the quality of our meta-states determines the quality of our life. Learn to understand how you have been meta-stating yourself in order to effectively manage your lower mind-body states (Neuro-Linguistic states) and learn processes to build customized designer states for any situation.

Meta-States as beliefs - Neuro-Semantics finally makes clear the structure of how to turn thoughts into beliefs and to turn beliefs into mere thoughts.  Gain skill in managing this process for your self and others to downgrade limiting beliefs as well as to install the empowering beliefs you deserve.

Meta-Stating Submodalities - Delve deeper into the structure of the representations in your mind and learn how the so called 'submodalities' are actually meta-modalities. Learn why the submodality patterns won't work in certain contexts, learn how to overcome that resistance as well as learn processes and gain skill in manage these structures for higher self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and self control.

Framing -  Even more important than working with the Internal Representations of the mind is the power of Framing Experience.  The higher frames organize and modulate all of the thoughts contained within, which makes them much more powerful and pervasive than our lower level frames and representations. Learn the 7 directions of framing to become skilled at de-constructing beliefs/meanings, creating new meanings, outframing meanings and reframing meanings with ease.  Become skilled at framing gives you a powerful tools to control you own subjective reality, to generate more resourceful outlooks on life, improve your negotiation skills, change beliefs with ease, and develop powerful skills for overcoming objections.

Day 5:

NLP Strategy model - Most of the time our communication follows a set of habits and patterns and NLP teaches us how to flex our behavior to get more productive results if something isn't working. Practice how to elicit strategies of excellence from others in order to replicate those strategies within your self and teach them to others. Practice eliciting and installing strategies for understanding, learning, motivation, believing, spelling, love, influencing, decision making etc.

The SCORE Model - The SCORE model provides a way to consider many of the basic components that go into effective problem solving and enables us to sort out and organize data. The SCORE model is an NLP tool for effectively moving from present state to desired state and offers us the most basic NLP pattern for working with subjectivity.

Day 6:

Time Lines - eliciting, changing, and utilizing

Time-Lines as meta-states

Milton Model - The linguistic distinctions for influence, persuasion, trance, and public speaking. The tonal distinctions that make for a hypnotic voice.

Logical Levels of Trance

Six-Step Reframing
