We finished day 6 of the Online NLP Training.
The batch is getting along better and better. So far we haven’t done any formal rapport building techniques… but the batch is in high rapport mode. People want to stay in breakouts longer and longer. And since we are getting into high gear – the participants are getting more and more breakouts and using that to practice with FUN.
FUN is by product of NLP training. That doesn’t mean that the NLP Master Trainer is acting like a clown. That is a wrong notion propagated by some NLP Trainers who know nothing else than cracking jokes. Jokes come handy when you don’t have content – and still want to count the number of hours. Having said that the NLP Trainer has to hold the attention of the audience all the time and keep them motivated. For this stories and metaphors come in handy. He may throw in a joke here and there as he himself is having fun. However, he spends most of time in delivering and breaking down the content for the participants.
The real fun comes from the participants opening up to each other, understanding each others’ maps of the world and then adding humor to enrich the experience. The trainer can then just give a practice exercise and ample of time, and then sit back and let the group do the rest of stuff.
Today session ended at 8:50 PM for me, then the participants were given 2o minutes exercise to complete and we called it the day. However I was pleased to see that the participants stayed in breakout rooms till 9:30 just chatting and enjoying their time together. Couple of naughty ones took the opportunity and slipped away in 10 minutes. That does not mean they are not going to complete the exercise. This is part of the fun when the inner naughty child comes into picture and want to repeat the school days’ mischiefs :).
Also we have announced NLP in HINDI + ENGLISH batch which is starting from June 4. Click here to know more about it.
