NLP Business Practitioner Course – Starting December 2018

A large proportion of our working life is spent in communicating with and attempting to influence other people.

On this course, you will learn how to use Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to enhance and improve the skills you already have.

Over 700 people have completed the NLP Business Practitioner course over the last 20 years and we have now updated this life changing course to make it even more effective.

The course is solution based so you can apply the learning immediately to improve your leadership, motivation, goal setting, selling, buying, presenting, performance management, confidence, state management, stress levels and understanding of yourself and others

NLP in a Business Environment

All business success relies heavily on the successful interaction of people. NLP skills can dramatically improve these interactions with a series of tools, techniques and methodologies which can be used effectively in all situations.

For Example

Negotiations become much more effective with improved rapport building skills, better understanding of participant’s needs and influencing techniques.

Presentations become much more effective, enjoyable and understandable to any audience.

More effective meetings and better teamwork also result from improved communication and understanding.

Recruitment and Selection becomes more effective as interviewers become more skilled at rapport building, asking ‘clean’ questions to obtain more accurate and detailed information.

Workplace Stress is becoming a major issue affecting all organisations. Stress is a physiological response to a situation. Individuals perceive situations differently, this perception is what drives their emotional state and behaviour. This is why some people are more affected by situations than others. We help people change their perception which has a knock on effect to their emotional state and behaviour.

Employees will dramatically improve their ability to learn quickly and effectively. The management of change becomes easier through increased learning, improved communication and the ability to break out of the circle of cause and effect.

What Some Delegates have said:

If you would like to understand more about yourself, change the direction of your life and career then this is the course for you. I know it sounds corny but it changed my life, took my career in a new direction, made me more successful and increased my happiness levels. I would recommend this course to anyone that wants the self belief that they can change anything they want to, have the ability to do anything in life and that they have a choice to or not.”

How Can Shreddies Help Me Manage Change?


If your brain was a computer, metaprogrammes would be the software running on the computer.

Just as a computer has to take in and analyse huge amounts of data to produce something we can make sense of, our brains have to do the same.  Without the software, a computer would be unable to do this task, just as, without metaprogrammes, our brains would be unable to sort, analyse and form a perception from the huge amount of data available to us.

These metaprogrammes decide what information we are going to take notice of and what we are going to delete; they decide how we are going to distort the information and what generalisations we are going to apply to the information we are processing.

This is why several people can have the same experience and respond to it in totally different ways.   Looking at an audience in a presentation, some people may be hanging on your every word, some people may be bored, some may just not have a clue what you’re talking about.

Understanding metaprogrammes can help you in all areas of life including managing change, sales and marketing, improving communication, self confidence and relationships.

How To Build A Cathedral

We have recently finished a really interesting piece of work with the Diocese of Truro.

The Church of England, like many old established organisations is currently going through a time of massive change.

We have been working with Truro’s Diocesan House to help them plan how they are going to help the Diocese manage this change and continue to thrive in the current climate.


We have so far used a mix of ‘Navigator’ (To develop the Strategy for change), coaching for the Diocesan Secretary, an Employee Survey (to set a benchmark and understand the initial level of employee engagement and a structured Away Day with the whole team to introduce the reason for change and the future approach to meeting the needs of the changing environment.

In the initial strategic sessions we used ‘Navigator’ to look at the current environment, behaviours, capabilities, beliefs and values and identity of the Diocesan House.

We then moved on to define the purpose of the team.

NLP and Work-Life Balance


Now that Spring is here I’m really getting excited about presenting at the upcoming NLP@Work conference.

I use NLP at work all the time; when I am selling, in the training I deliver, during coaching sessions and when I’m working with therapy clients.  However, for me, NLP extends way beyond those practical business applications and forms a part of how I live my life.

So What Is NLP Anyway And How Can It Help Me At Work?



By Martin Crump.

Martin is a Director and co-founder of Evolution.  He is a certified NLP Master Trainer with a wealth of experience of working with organisations of all sizes and types across the UK.





NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) has been around for some time now.

In the past, the tools and techniques of NLP have proved to be extremely effective as therapeutic tools, enabling a large number of people world wide to resolve personal issues and limitations and give them the ability to grow and realise their potential.

Until recently, NLP training was designed and delivered on a therapeutic base and has been successful in training Practitioners who often go on to become therapists.

At Evolution we recognise the huge potential for NLP tools and techniques in the business field and have worked extensively to adapt traditional NLP training into this area, culminating in business focused courses which are accredited by the NCFE.


What is NLP?


NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is the Art and Science of Personal Excellence.

Art, because the way we each think and act is unique to us, and any description of feelings, attitudes and beliefs is bound to be highly subjective and personal.

Science, because it incorporates well researched methods that can be used to identify the patterns of successful behaviour and develop those patterns in yourself.
