As trainers ourselves, we may be a bit biased when it comes to being a better trainer by incorporating NLP into what you do. But, we do know firsthand the difference it makes as a trainer to elevate the outcomes of participants and students by training to the conscious and unconscious minds.
You see, when you are trained in NLP you are not only able to understand others better, you are able to communicate your message more accurately too. When we talk about using NLP to train we actually mean, incorporate NLP tools of communication, persuasion and understanding to deliver a message to a group of people, in a way that will fit best for each of them.
This includes some amazing NLP tools including identifying and using the learning style of your participants, incorporating specific sensory specific words and phrases to engage your participants at different stages of the learning process and ensuring that your non-verbal language meets the verbal message you are delivering. This includes your gestures, facial expressions, tempo, tone and volume of your voice plus how you are standing, breathing and even moving.
Additionally, with NLP you will learn how to include metaphors a teaching tools, how to use nested metaphors for more impact, how to create group rapport and cohesion tools, plus how to utilise Ericksonain language for a more impactful message. The list continues – you will learn how to identify and use the unconscious filters of your learners and craft your message to include aspects of many of them at the same time.
NLP takes into account a wide range of unconscious awareness elements, that when packaged together. You already know that not everyone learns the same – therefore, no one should be trained the same. Regardless if you are training one-on-one or in a group setting, the skills of NLP will raise your training skills head and shoulders above the rest and ensure your learnings are capturing as much of the learning as possible.
