If you’re considering undertaking an NLP training, the first step is choosing the right trainer. Each trainer is different, and experience levels, training styles and background can really vary.
If you’re not sure how to go about selecting the NLP business trainer that’s right for you, here’s a quick guide to get you started.
Choosing an NLP course
There are lots of NLP courses to choose from, from short taster sessions to a full NLP Practitioner course. Many of these courses will have a particular focus: in this article we’re going to look at NLP business training, which uses NLP tools and techniques to develop professional skills like selling, buying and presenting.
Choosing an NLP Business Trainer
Do your research
Take some time to find an NLP trainer whose teaching style and ethos is right for you. If you’ve got colleagues or friends who’ve completed an NLP training course, ask for recommendations, or reach out to your network on LinkedIn.
Try a taster course
If you’ve identified a trainer you think you’d work well with but you’re not sure you’re ready to commit, see if they’ve got short online or taster courses available (like our Time Management Toolkit).
If that’s not available, a phone call or meeting with a potential trainer is a good way to get to know them a bit better before you commit.
Ask about their experience
There are thousands of NLP trainers in the UK alone, and the range of experience will vary widely. Ask potential trainers about their track record, any previous clients, and the industries they’ve worked in. Choosing a really experienced trainer means you get to take advantage of all the skills development and training they’ve undertaken themselves.
Ask about their background
Although not essential, an NLP business trainer with a background in business will be bringing all the knowledge and experience they’ve gained from working in the field to your training. Example: if you work in procurement, a trainer who’s worked with buying departments might be able to give you a unique perspective on your skillset.
Read reviews and testimonials
The best way to find out the value of an NLP business training is to read feedback from trainees who’ve already taken the course. An NLP trainer with lots of great feedback is likely to be a good choice!
Get the details
Ask potential trainers about the course details: how many delegates will usually be on the course at one time? How long does the course last and how will it be structured? Make sure the way the course is delivered suits your timetable and budget, and that there won’t be too many delegates being taught at once.
