The SOIF Coach Certification Program

What is NLP?

NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming is about modeling; studying, understanding and transferring the skills of top performers in any field (Joseph O’Connor & John Seymour, Training With NLP, Thorsons 1994). By using NLP, you will be able to enhance a regular coaching session into a positive, focussed, and strategic breakthrough experience.

NLP is an advanced tool used by many successful professionals in a whole range of activities. The simplicity of the tool plus its effectiveness makes it a much sought after edge of today’s professionals who deal with people on a daily basis.
