At last, an article that exposes the truth behind NLP Training. For far to long NLP has only been available to the select few. People like Anthony Robbins, Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama who can pay the thousands of dollars required for learning Neuro-Linguistic Programming from a half decent Trainer. And it’s crazy, right? NLP is all about communication skills. Shouldn’t communication be freely to all? This article is all about why NLP Training is so valuable and what you need to do next.
For starters, please watch the videos in this blog article. They will really, really help you. Secondly, make sure you find a buddy to talk to about NLP Training Courses. That will really help you too.

Not all NLP Trainings are created equal. And there are several factors you need to know about a NLP Training before you go anywhere near one. These factors are important in all trainings but they are especially important with NLP Trainings because if you make the wrong decision then that mistake will cost you a lot of money.
The top three factors to consider are:
– Ease of access to information
– Size of the NLP Training Group
– Your learning style
How easily can you access the information? Is it in the same language that you naturally speak? Is it taught in your town? Or would you have to travel somewhere to hear it? Remember, any travel should be factored into the cost of the course as the airlines, buses, taxis and hotel accommodation are rarely offered for free and can add up quickly. But what about the delivery of materials. Do you get information you can read as well as what the trainer says? What happens if you want to refresh the content in a year or a month? How do you do that? These are all important considerations with NLP Training that you must answer before you do any NLP Training.
How big will the NLP Training Group be? Will it just be you and the Trainer? Or will there be a thousand other students there? Both situations have pros and cons. For example, the smaller the group is the more likely you will be able to have your specific questions answered. The smaller the group the more likely the trainer will be able to offer you specific feedback and tips that meet your needs. But many people who learn NLP in small, small groups will leave without any confidence in their ability to use the tools with a wide variety of people. And that confidence is critical to being a good Practitioner. But on the flip side if you are one of hundreds you will often be denied the ability to ask questions and, should you ever need help, there are unlikely to be enough assistances on hand to help you. Though you do have the advantage of meeting many, many people and often you can find great friends in this way.
And what about your individual learning style? Do you learn best when you get to talk ideas through? Do you learn best when you have a good manual? Do you learn best when you’re sitting at a desk? Many big seminars will have you balancing a file across your knees while you try to follow along with what the guru at the front of the room is saying. If you need a toilet break then BANG you start missing information while the trainer keeps teaching in your absence. Needless to say, the perfect NLP Training experience is one that perfectly fits your learning style. Ideally it should also include time based repetition as, regardless of your learning style, this will allow you to best integrate the learnings. And it also means that years or decades into the future you can easily go back and re-watch or re-listen to the material. Watch out for ‘audio pre-study courses’ as many of these were recorded in the 1980’s or 1990’s and are totally out of date. The best information will be delivered in the format of how you keep in contact with your friends and family. That means that in 2012 the best and most up-to-date information will be delivered via a combination of email, Facebook and websites. When those means of communication are replaced by better alternatives in the future then the best training programs will make use of those new mediums instead.
So what you want to do is you want to consider these top factors. You want to place a weighting on each of them for you and work out what all the options are. And then when you know all of the options and have given them weightings you are then able to start compare one option fairly against another option. Make sure that the decision you make is the decision that is best for your needs. Anytime you call a NLP Training Company and talk to their sales staff they will tell you that their system is the best, their system gets the best results and you should go with them today. But when you’ve heard that from a dozen NLP Training Companies it becomes pretty obvious that they can’t all be right. So stick to your guns, be assertive about your needs and these factors will stand you in good stead to make a great decision that will quickly and easily educate you for a prosperous future.
