What is NLP? (Neuro Linguistic Programming) - NLP Courses - NLP Training | The Coaching Institute

What Is NLP?

Definition: NLP, or Neuro-Linguistic Programming is the study of human excellence and communication.

At The Coaching Institute, we see it as so much more than that. Understanding NLP allows you to take control of your state, emotions and behavior. It allows you to transform your thought patterns to become more effective and facilitate positive change in others.

First Developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder back in the 1970’s, NLP and it’s developments have become ever more popular in the education world. Famed for its phenomenal stack of tools and techniques NLP is credited with assisting thousands of people in overcoming blocks and reaching their true potential.

NLP begins with “modelling” – Studying an expert in the field and then breaking down the process of what makes them successful into thoughts, beliefs, values and actions. By doing this you unlock the ability to replicate the same awesome results and discover the core aspects of success.

NLP Master Practitioner, June 2013



Some of the Beliefs of NLP

1 There are no resistant clients, only inflexible communicators.
2 People are not their behaviours. Accept the person, change the behaviour
3 Behaviour is geared for adaptation, and present behaviour is the best choice available. Every behaviour is motivated by a positive intent.
4 Calibrate on behaviour. The most important information about a person is that person's behaviour.
5 The map is not the territory.
6 You are in charge of your mind, and therefore your results.
7 People have all the resources they need to succeed and to achieve their desired outcomes.
8 There is only feedback. There is no failure, only feedback.
9 The meaning of communication is the response you get.

NLP Today - Meta Dynamics & the Evolution of NLP

Today NLP is used extensively by coaches, sales professionals, business leaders and educators as a way of assisting their clients to achieve maximum results easily and quickly.

But as the market and economy has evolved so must NLP. In June 2013 Sharon Pearson and The Coaching Institute launched their latest thinking model and change methodology, Meta Dynamics. Meta Dynamics takes NLP’s building blocks and adapts them to best serve our market today. We see this model as the future of our industry as it easily and effectively guides users to the results they desire.

This is the natural evolution of NLP and it has already been recognised for achieving some staggering results.

This has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had, to see these two young people grow the way they did was amazing. I truly stepped out into the coaching world on Tuesday 29th April 2014 launching my business with a 2 hour workshop presenting the 10 Success Principles. I listened to this CD collection constantly for 2 weeks prior to the event, at the gym, in the car and I was reading the book at the same time. I transcribed every CD and I live with these principles everyday. I signed my first business client in May 2014 on a 6 month retainer and have been coaching the business owners and their managers. This client has seen me grow as a coach, after completing EDisc, Advanced Skills, Meta 1 & Meta II and How to Run a Workshop. I have been grateful for the opportunity to use all of these skills with this business client.

Before TCI I was working as a Town Planning Consultant in London. A demanding and stressful job I found myself in conflict with a Director and I ended up hating my job. I would spend my daytimes working as hard as possible so I didn’t have to work with him and my night times writing out new business ideas. Anything to get me out of where I was at. After 2 years of searching for something different my Dad said to me ‘Jade stop searching. You are going to Australia and you never know what Australia holds for you’. 12 months into a new town planning role in Australia and life was much sweeter. Sunshine, a 10 minute walk to work and no conflict, yet I still found myself searching for something more meaningful. Then I found The Coaching Institute and wow what a journey it has been. At my intake weekend I felt like I was in a parallel universe and I just couldn’t believe something like this existed. Finding The Coaching Institute has been one of the best things about moving to Australia.

When I wake up some mornings and find myself in an unresourceful state of mind, I remember an anecdote relayed to me by Joe Pane at my FOCS training. He told us that in nature, ducks do not stand around and organise how they are going to walk. The mother just starts moving and soon all the ducks are in a row. So I stop listening to my inner voice, put one foot in front of the other and by simply acting, I achieve more in my day than I could ever have imagined laying in bed.

With a strong appetite for the classroom component of the course, I booked in and completed all of those days with Joe Pane, Sharon Pearson and Johnnie Cass as quickly as possible. And with a real need to earn money, I got out there, joined business networking groups and started coaching as soon as I could. I needed to earn 100k in my first financial year, just to keep the wolves at bay, so I set the goal, focussed on where I could add value and make a difference, and I achieved my goal. This was working as a generalist, coaching and training anyone and everyone!

The part of it all is…. making your own rules. Whilst there are MANY different paths to take, this is a path that rewards taking your own path consistently. Most people are too concerned with thinking it needs to be such a certain way, but doing this is about finding your own way and inspiring others to the do the same is what this is about. TCI gives you the canvas, brushes and paints, and then it’s up to create a master piece of your own design. Don’t concern yourself so much with the 10,000th step, you’ll figure that out when you get to the 9,999th.

I came to TCI in September 2012. Both my wife Janelle and I decided to take the journey together, figuring that if all we got out of it was a better marriage, then that’d be a pretty damn good deal! Yes, it’s been so much more than that! Life before TCI? A bit different…! I was an actor, producer and director of my own theatre company, whilst holding down a day job at a transport company. Yup, I told you it was a bit different! Needless to say I was very busy. So busy that I burnt out while doing the very thing that I loved and eventually gave my theatre company away. All I was left with was my bills paid from keeping my transport job, and an empty feeling for giving up my passion. There’s only so long that one can stay with that empty feeling before finally taking action. And after many conversations with a great friend who was then a WOW team member, I started to see options.

The idea we've taken from this is that - once you have your big idea... GO FOR IT! This is the fifth idea for a joint program that we came up with this year, and the only one we acted on because it felt right. We both know how it feels when a program gails (we've had plenty of flops between us, too), and we were prepared to give this all we had - regardless of the outcome. We looked into 2014 with this program as our major focus, which is absolutely not where we were in 2013. So interesting how things develop... Hopefully our experience will inspire you to keep going, keep experimenting, and throw yourselves heart and soul into this journey.

I didn’t have a clue as to what I was signing up for when I started… it didn’t take long for The Coaching Institute to blow me out of the water. TCI has changed the way I think and the way I am. I am so grateful to have been a part of the TCI community – a community which has multiple values associated with it. You feel like you’re not on the journey on your own… you’re part of a family. A different world to the one you start off in. It’s a lifelong journey. Don’t let your ego get in the way.

It was 2008 and I was at TCI's life coaching intake weekend. It was something I'd wanted to do for years, but the stigma of 80s motivational speaker cheesiness kept me away. Now I was finally in the room and I was REALLY triggered. To my credit, after I left I could see that I was projecting. I'd already done a lot of work on various aspects of myself but this was the first time I realised that money and business were BIG mirrors.

I knew I wanted to challenge myself to continue growing and becoming the best version of me. Deciding to sign up to the Credentialed Practitioner of Coaching course, was for me the pathway to beginning my own personal development, and learning how to more serve others. My Foundations weekend in February 2014 was phenomenal. The content, the facilitator, the people I met and how these things have all conspired to support my success, is truly extraordinary. In the last 10 days I have submitted my manuscript of just under 43,000 words for my book “Trust Your Melody” to my editor. It is due to be published March 2015. Only days before that I followed the on-line path that my latest blog had taken around the world. Australia, New Zealand, America, England, Ireland, South Africa, Switzerland, the Philippines and Bali. Not only that but my article has been picked up by several of the biggest charities in the world relating to my sons deformity, and shared with the thousands of families they support. From not speaking up to having an international voice!

I went from charging per hour to earning over $35,000 per month on consultancy where my clients call me when they need me. It’s quite a comfortable and nice position to be in – they only call when they need, and I am still earning a steady income. I’ve just developed my first workshop sold at $1,200 per month – and I’ve already had six people sign up before starting to market it! By December, I’ll be on $50,000 per month – which is phenomenal, being only 12 months into the journey.

It has been a hell of a healing journey and incredible challenge which has been entirely worth it. I have had about 16 thousands identify shifts, cried more times in 12 months that the past 12 years put together, gotten sick, felt lost and most of all found what it is that lights my up every single day and I live and breathe what I teach. I have learnt to let go of control and that money is energy. Where focus goes energy flows. Financially it’s been incredible...

The Coaching Institute has been the foundation, one hundred percent. Having a training and a certification behind has really provided some extra confidence behind what I can deliver, and the content so far has just been incredible. In fact, whenever I want to give value, I ask myself what the team at TCI would be doing in this situation. I just think that TCI is one of those places I grew up dreaming about, and when I found it, I was like "Ohhh. This is what it feels like, in the flesh, in reality." It's really hard to language!

And what does it look like… well, unlike the majority of TCI students I’m not looking to create a coaching business at all, rather a support network type enterprise to help people ‘grow through’ their adversities – much like I’ve tried to do in my own life. TCI is helping me gain clarity around personal growth. So this business/organisation… it’s Grow Through. And to be perfectly honest this is the ‘community’ that I’ve been trying to find for years [for support with my own obvious challenges] only it never actually existed. Well yee-hah now it does :)

I looked at the TCI website. I started ticking all the boxes of the characteristics of a good coach. It was me, me, me. I was emotional because somebody finally understood me. I requested the gift pack, and Fiona from the Marvels called. We spoke for about an hour or so. Lots of tears. It was just amazing. I remember very clearly signing up on a Friday… and then went straight into Foundations of Coaching Success the week after.

My success was about getting out of my own way and I was shown this by so many members of The Coaching Institute. They are a formidable team who absolutely inspire awesome. I also understand the importance of knowing I’m doing the best I can with what I have. Now, with the personnel and resources that TCI provides, that just shifted a whole other level

The Coaching Institute has been the key to flipping a switch in my life. I’ve come from a place of being a people pleaser – being at effect. TCI is a resource for developing my life. They’re just amazing. Completely inspirational. With the opportunities that’ve come for me, I cannot afford to have anything stand in my way. TCI have taught me how to make my Why bigger than myself.

Joining The Coaching Institute has been one of the biggest learning curves in my life. I had no idea about how to establish a business or how to sell myself. There have been a lot of ups and downs, and definitely big learning curves. I was able to use the knowledge I have had in market research to build my brand, in terms of colour, positioning, exposure etc. Self-belief and consistency are the keys to my quality marketing. It didn’t come as a second nature; it is something I had to learn over time. You need to absolutely believe in what you do, stand in your own conviction and keep going at it until you reach your goals. I realise that the journey to build a successful business is not a sprint; it is a long marathon that requires determination, perseverance and an absolute self-belief.

The Coaching Institute gave me the ability to create my own niche. We offer coaches work running our contracts. Foundations of Coaching Success and NLP was mega cool. TCI have really given me the tools to flex our business development muscles. I knew the coaching world was something I needed, but I didn’t really understand much about it. I was – and still am – impressed about how powerful and practical it is. I have tools and strategies to make it work in the real world.

Launching my website. Moving back to the UK having built a totally international business. I can serve my clients from across the globe. I’m proof you can do what you want to, regardless of your background, challenges, experience, as one very successful advert says - ‘just do it!’

One small step every single day will take me to my dream. Do you want to know why I believe I can reach my dream? Or why I know I will reach my dream? First of all because of all of you guys out there – the support I have received from the coaching family and especially from the TCI family has allowed me to grow and believe in myself again. I know I am not doing this alone, I know I am not doing this just for me. We are all in this together. And I want to thank you all from all my heart for being in my life!

In the beginning I really questioned whether or not this would work for me.

I was stuck… from the an outsider looking in everything looked great, on the inside nothing made sense.

My journey with TCI began in 2012 - I had already enrolled in the Cert. IV course and I took my skeptical partner along to a free TCI event a few weeks before my intake weekend. We were both so blown away by the content shared at this event that I immediately upgraded to the Diploma course and my partner enrolled in the Diploma course as well - all before even setting foot in the classroom.

I always wanted to 'make a difference' in the world, so I thought I would become a teacher. However, after teaching for nearly seven years in five countries around the world, establishing a charity and school in Zimbabwe for orphans and children who lived on the streets, teaching in a leper colony in India and teaching within the private and public sector within Australia, I realised what my true passion was - changing people's lives for the better. I wanted to do it on a deeper, more meaningful level than what I was currently able to do. I researched 'Life coaching' and came across TCI. I didn't need much convincing to join, and I have not looked back ever since.

It has been really exciting to set up as a professional, doing what I love and feeling like I’m good at it! It is extremely satisfying to have people say YES!, step up sessions and sign up to information workshops. Their feedback to date has been amazing. If you continue to follow my journey you will see online material, workshops, retreats and plenty of 1:1 coaching opportunities ahead. I’m reaching out to young executives and entrepreneurs alike to keep them ahead of their game and master that age old foe – work/life balance!

Modelling Sharon Pearson has assisted me in developing a business that has great financial rewards. Being part of the TCI community with all the training that is available to you and the support is phenomenal, then there’s what I call the nudge factor. They always celebrate your success with you and then give you a little nudge that will always result in you finding within yourself more Certainty, more Love, more Gratitude, or whatever it is you need to make the difference to you and your client’s world

The coaching and mentoring journey has been so rewarding already and even before getting out there and working with others, the benefits of doing this course are worth it all. My 5 year goal is to be speaking at events for women in business as well as running my own training programs. I would like to be coaching around 6 clients at a time. I am limiting to that number as I love running the 2 businesses and that’s the perfect amount for me without overdoing it! I currently have 2 clients and will continue to outsource more of my photography work as the numbers increase (which seems to be happening very quickly!)

I have thought about this long and hard. Success to me isn’t the actions I’ve taken, it’s actually my perspective on the outcomes of my actions. Eg. just starting, just having a go and creating something that’s never been done before, no matter how terrified I was – that to me is a success. The actual retreat itself was insane. It was one of the hardest, craziest things I’ve ever done and in the end it cost me money, health and I swear, a little of my soul. It took me over a month to return to normal, but looking back there is no greater achievement than following through on something that most people thought was impossible to pull off by myself in 6 months’ time. I learnt so much, SO MUCH. It was like going to an intense business course for life.

I started my coaching journey in 2009 through reading and attending seminars run by Tony Robbins and others. However, my journey really took off in 2012 after contacting TCI and then again in 2013 when I made the commitment to myself. My first impression of TCI was an awesome feeling of welcome and community, exactly what I was looking for. My intake weekend was in March 2013, which was an amazing time. I was utterly stretched and I grew so much. I also learnt to get over myself. After intake I set the intent to just coach and learn. My mind was like a sponge and I continually used the ‘say yes and work out how’ approach.

Before TCI I was studying civil engineering at the University of Technology Sydney but I knew from the start that I was studying something I had no passion for. Because I loved people and was fascinated with the psychology of people and the process of change, I started looking in to a degree in Psychology. I didn't like traditional psychology so I started looking for something deeper and that's where life coaching comes in. Life coaching has combined my love of helping people with my passion for understanding human behaviour.

I had also been a travel agent for the past 9yrs, which I grown out of and lost the passion I once had, so I found a big hole in my life with no longer being a full time mum, work was now non-existent so it was time for ME! I started doing some pretty deep soul searching with what I wanted in life and where I wanted to be in 5yrs, 10yrs rest of my life time. So after many tears, books, wine & girlfriend chats I found TCI and in my heart I knew it was what I was meant to do, I ask for confirmation (in my own way) and it came. Within 2wks I was signed with TCI and as they say the rest was history.

I’m passionate about what coaching can do but I communicate my WHY first. Coaching is just one way of delivering my why. It makes for more interesting conversations, that’s for sure! When you talk passionately about your “why”, it’s guaranteed to light you up and that sets you apart from the crowd who talk about what they “do” - and that's when the magic happens.
