Karen NLP seminar

Karen and John are involved with the NLP leadership community both in the UK and Internationally. At the recent International NLP Leadership summit it was discussed, at great length, how we can ensure that people being trained are being trained well. Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) has a patchy reputation and this is by and large because the difference between good and bad quality trainings varies drastically across the UK (and the world). The problem that potential students or even people with an idle curiosity have with searching for Trainers of NLP is that unless you’ve been in the field for ten years it’s hard to work out who’s good and who’s not.

 The words we use matter. When we speak or hear a word we make pictures and sounds in our minds, and that impacts how we feel and behave. So it’s important to be clear about what we are saying, to ourselves and others. In this series, John will explore the meaning and impact of common words we use and ask the question ‘Do we know what we’re saying?’

There are three main skill sets that ensure success in business: people skills, technology skills and problem-solving skills.
Problem-solving is a high level thinking skill. It involves accurately assessing an issue, identifying potential solutions and choosing the most effective solutions to implement. Building the problem solving skills of your team benefits your business by boosting productivity, improving teamwork and giving your team the ability to deliver results which stand out from the norm.

What makes a bad one? Does the world need leaders who are strong, single minded and driven to get things done quickly or leaders that are flexible, able to listen to everyone’s opinions and who take time to reflect and consider before doing anything?
