My Inner Compass NLP Training Experience
Have you ever been on a roller coaster? The issue with roller coasters is the multitude of emotional experiences they provide and how quite speedily you can move from 1 emotion into one more. This is perhaps 1 of the analogies I could use to describe the experiences I had as a outcome of training in NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and NLP Trainers Education with Inner Compass.
My journey began in the Summer of 2005. I had heard of Inner Compass by way of a friend who had told me “there’s this bloke known as Andy Harrington whose got a bigger fire walk than Tony Robbins.” Not many folks can claim to having something larger than Tony Robbins, after all, he’s a massive guy, so intrigued, I looked him up on the web and signed up for a free NLP event with his company Inner Compass.
I was impressed with the cost-free occasion. Harrington used clean stage anchors and a lot of suggestive language when promoting his item and I admired the certainty with which he did it. I wasn’t there although, to get roped into a “breakthough” weekend. I was there to sign up for NLP training. So at the end of the occasion I went up to him to ask him about it.
It seemed he’d more than estimated his personal sales abilities. Soon after ten minutes of trying to convince me that I’d discover more about NLP following I’d signed up for his “breakthrough weekend,” I walked out.
I had a get in touch with from one of his sales guys within a couple of days. It took him a additional two telephone calls and around an hour and 15 minutes of discussion about why their NLP was better that the McKenna/ Bandler education to convince me to portion with a couple of thousand pounds.
Was it well spent? Properly I believe that there are trainings that almost certainly matched up to their standard of coaching for possibly a grand significantly less, but with Inner Compass you wasn’t just acquiring the NLP expertise, you were acquiring into the complete showbiz knowledge, the hugs with smelly strangers, to be portion of “their family” and component of the magic.
And mostly it was a magical experience. I learnt a lot and felt comfy and confident about what I had learned. I produced a lot of fantastic pals and even worked by way of some of my own poor stuff that I’d been holding onto. I had gone there with the intention of acquiring the qualifications so that I could expand my hypnotherapy company. I ended up deciding that my vocation was getting up there on stage, teaching the stuff alternatively. Trust me, this wasn’t a whimsical choice, I employed to adore getting on stage as a child and had for the past 4 years been taking exams in musical theatre. I am passionate about Hypnotherapy and NLP and I rather like money too. So it seemed like the proper way forward.
Usually unconventional, I then didn’t follow the Master Practitioner, Trainers Instruction route due to a singing exam that fell at the very same time as the subsequent scheduled Master Practitioner education with Inner Compass. This meant that I would do Trainers Coaching 1st, followed by Master Practitioner and then The eight hour exam to pass Trainers Education. And that is exactly the way it occurred. I surprised myself on Trainers Coaching by keeping up with the majority of other delegates who had been already Master Practitioners, and I believe I surprised some of them too.
Master Practitioner was significantly less engaging, perhaps simply because some of the cracks in Inner Compass as a organization, had been beginning to show, or probably because Trainers Coaching had been so challenging, that Master Practitioner at occasions verged on also easy. Nevertheless travelling into central London for 12 extended days solid was exhausting in itself, and the very subsequent day soon after it finished, was the eight hour Trainers Education exam. Which I completed in four hours.
Overall I’m glad of the expertise I had, I’m glad it was with Inner Compass. At the end of each course, there was often a sense of nostalgia as we all said goodbye to each and every other. Such a shame that now we are saying goodbye to an institution of such excellent adore and magic forever.
