The journey wasn’t easy… From planning to preparing to delivering.. Each level has its own hiccups… At times there was a point where consciousness was giving up and stand there my unconscious clear and powerful saying to me Loud enough, you are made for this… Just go for it with all your preparation… Remember I will support you in organizing all that information you need, all that information you have inside, all the extra information you would need from outside. And you have to promise me only one thing… You will not give up your preparation…. I will take care of rest…. I want you to Prepare, Prepare, Prepare and assimilate all the knowledge to go through the challenges in your tasks given…
And here it is… Completed my dream of NLP Trainers Training and evaluation successfully as an NLP Trainer with none other than John Grinder (Co-Creator of NLP and Creator of New Code NLP), Carmen Bostic St. Clair, Michael Carroll with NLP Academy at Portugal with more than 40 countries participated and more than 80 international coaches. A boot camp with only word Challenges.
My fellow friends and coaches wanted to hear about my experiences. Well, I cannot put my experience in a few words, although I decided to process my information in series for all. Here is the first series mentioning my part of the world about John Grinder.
John Grinder is one of the Co-Creator of NLP along with Richard Bandler. American linguistic, author, Co-Creator of New Code NLP, trainer and management consultant.
Age: 79 years
Spouse: Carmen Bostic St Clair.
Major Studies from University of California
Interests: Transformational grammar, epistemology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming
His ability to model and code the performance of Geniuses is fundamental.
The core of NLP is modelling and both of them modelled Milton Erickson, Fritz Pearl and Virginia Satir. I would give more information on modelling and about each model in upcoming articles. NLP originated in years 1970’s and it’s a purely structured process.
About John Grinder: The below is my perception of knowledge and understanding transfer in these days in the Class (26th May-13th June, Portugal) organised by NLP Academy wherein we were trained by John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St. Clair and Michael Carroll.
We were blessed to have him almost every day in our class. What I loved is he would make sure that he would know almost each and everyone with their names.
He would remember you for a lifetime as I met him last year and went to see him on the first day, and I said, “Hello John, I was there in the last year, he said I very well remember you.”
His intelligence is remarkable and cannot be put in words.
He shares all the old stories of the origin of NLP for you to be knowing the scenes behind the subject and gain more clarity.
He would love you to comment and mindfully challenge on the techniques.
He appreciates you be the Agents of Change and do self-practice each technique written, and get the results for self.
His house has senses to hear the voices from outside as they live near the animals. They have some technical equipment which can hear all the kind of voices.
His rapport with horses is strong and he suggests you can make rapport with animals too.
His style of provocation is marvellous and he appreciates Frank work of provocation.
He shares the modelling work done at the origin of NLP and he would appreciate you to pick up the first thing first. (NLP Modelling)
He personally does not like giving names or labelling, though names had to be given for language purpose.
Process and structure in depth you can learn from him.
Each technique and its step made has a certain reason. Before you ask anything, ask that question to self, get a logic process based answer and then definitely you can ask him.
He would appreciate you to find the answers by self as he suggests if I will give all the answers it will limit discovery.
The process made to provide training for us as trainers has a superb structure and each point is connected as a strong loop.
Surrender power is all you need when you work with him. This is my simple takeaway.
Well personally I have discussed my personal project with him and he guided me through and his kindness is more as he says I would look forward to hearing from you on the project.
A man on the planet to be met and not to be missed.
Well, I was doing good as an NLP Trainer in India and I wanted to go out of my comfort zones and challenge self outside in the world. I really did not know that I can do it so so successfully and strongly. Well, how would I know, if I have not done it before?
In this journey, I am humbled to say that I have become one of the Indian Lady to complete the level of Trainers Training and evaluation with NLP Academy with John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St. Clair, and Michael Carroll.
Stay tuned to hear about a great experience with Michael Carroll and Carmen Bostic St Clair too.
