With coaching being a multi-layers discipline, it's important to make some distinctions. In this video Steve will explain the difference between traditional coaching, mentoring, teaching and awakening.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Coaching, mentoring, teaching & awakening.
15:38

Are you becoming a Coach or are you becoming a Therapist?  How do you know the difference?  And does it really matter?  

In this video Brian will guide you through the  differences in the classical definitions of Coaching and Therapy and then give you a key tip in becoming the best coach you can be for yourself and your clients.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

The difference between coaching & therapy. B
03:30

Your first coaching model...

There are lots of different coaching models but they mostly all boil down to a simple idea: helping people move from where they are to where they want to be. In this video, Steve will outline a fundamental NLP based model necessary for becoming a masterful coach: the Present State to Desired State model.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

A fundamental coaching model. S
14:21

As a coach, we work from the premise that people do not need 'fixed', that they are, indeed, resource rich. In this video Steve will outline this point with interesting examples.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

People are resource rich. S
08:07

Now you understand the simple, overarching process of being an exceptional coach, Brian tells you about a real life example of the process in action, the incredible changes it made for one of his clients and the ongoing 'ripple' that the coaching started.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

An Inspiring coaching story. B
05:42

In this video, Steve will outline some different coaching methodologies. The course will mostly focus on NLP based Coaching but they will also be drawing from other ideas and methodologies.

Different coaching methodologies. S
15:41

As experts in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Steve and Brian are both hugely passionate about how the skills of NLP can positively enhance your coaching skills.

In this first of two NLP videos, Brian explains where NLP came from, what NLP is not, and why practising and learning the skills will enhance your coaching skills beyond measure.

Life is organic, but we all need models and a process to draw from. In this video Steve will outline the overall process that the training course will be based on.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

The Coaching Process. S
09:57

Your first Demonstration...

Now that we are reaching the end of section 1 we'd like to do a quick coaching demonstration. Learn the power of clean coaching questions to make coaching more client-cantered. In this video, Steve will be setting the demonstration up.

+ The Coaching Relationship.
19 lectures 02:23:48

The relationship between the coach and client is vital. It will largely influence the results you get in the sessions you do together. In this video, Steve will outline what he believes to be the most useful dynamic between coach & client.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

The Coaching Dynamic. S
14:09

Coaching is a dialogue not a monologue. It's a sophisticated feedback loop By appreciating this simple idea you can develop your coaching to become more organic and dynamic.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Coaching as a feedback loop.
11:04

Brian gets an opportunity to tell one of his favourite NLP jokes while explaining the power of Cause and Effect.  A key job of any coach is to ensure that their client is taking responsibility and ownership of the problem.

However, the issue for many amateur coaches is that they miss tell-tale signals in their client's actions, language and behaviour that point towards a distinct lack of the required responsibility or ownership.

By the end of this video you will understand how common it is to give away our personal power and how you can begin helping your clients to recalim it and use it positivley in their own lives.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Cause and Effect - empowering people. B
07:45

Following on from Brian's description of 'Cause' & 'Effect', Steve will outline some further important distinctions with regards to the idea.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Cause & Effect - further distinctions. S
06:48

It's time for an exercise.

In this video, Steve will outline an exercise you can do to 'track' where your client os at, in relation to 'cause' & 'effect'.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

How to track cause & effect. S
06:29

People are always ready to hold themselves back and make themselves small.  Brian spent more than half his life doing just that.  Preferring to be in the background and hide rather than step up and be himself.  

In this insightful video, Brian explains how he held himself back and how you can help your clients be truly fantastic by recognising when someone is running the AMJIST principle in the background of their life.

In fact, there is even a chance by the end of this video you may discover that you are running this principle too!



COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

The AMJIST principle. B
06:45

You need to walk your talk but you also don't need to be perfect. In this video, Steve will discuss the balance between these two; something that can often be difficult to find, as a coach.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Walk your talk & the myth of perfection.S
09:28

When creating a coaching relationship there is a fundamental building block more important than any model, principle or skill.  In fact, Brian and Steve have encountered countless, hgihly skilled and educated coaches who, because of their inability to effectively perform this skill, couldn't help the client's they wanted to help, make the difference they wanted to make and, very often, end up giving up life as coaches altogether.

However, all of us, at one time or another, have had a conversation with someone, a person who, for some unexplained reason we have an amazing connection to, who has changed us.  Sometimes permanently.  They weren't a coach, you just met them at a party or a course or sittin on a train but the connection you created had, and maybe continues to have, a profound affect on your life.

Let us show you how to make those connections on purpose and why they are so important.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

The importance of Trust & Rapport. B
06:42

Pacing and Leading: one of your most valuable communication tools as a coach. In this video, you will learn how to create a beautiful ebb and flow between you and the client that also allows you - the coach - to influence and move them in a particular direction.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Pacing & Leading. S
05:47

Every person on the planet is a natural rapport builder.  The ability to match and mirror each other's physiology and to unconsciosly recognise when it is happening is in-built into each and every one of us.

Which is why a person who can use this skill 'on demand' can be a very powerful and influential person indeed.

Brian takes you through the simple, and incredibly powerful, skill of Matching and Mirroring.

Matching & Mirroring. B

Matching and Mirroring Part 2. B
12:19

Brian challenges you to make Rapport real by taking out into the real world!  

Start off with a simple challenge (which is really nice and will make you and at least one other person happy) and then, if you feel up to it, take on the Advanced challenge and test your skills on building entirely unconscious rapport.

10:57

What is a Coaching Frame?  And why is it important?

In this quick introduction to framing, Brian takes you through what a frame actually is before we look at how to use them.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


The Coaching Pre-talk - Framing. B
02:05

Now you know how important framing is, Brian takes you in to a little more detail of the two frames he uses most often in his professional coaching practice.  

These two frames are hugely useful devices to use not only at the beginning of a coaching relationship but all the way through and will be tools that you can fall back on again, and again, and again.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Two Coaching Frames Brian uses. B
03:03

In this video, Steve will share two coaching frames that he likes to set early on in the coaching relationship.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

10:54

Now it's time to go from theory to practice...

In this video you will introduced to an exercise on 'designing your own pre-talk'. Remember, how you start your coaching sessions is massively important - it will colour and shape the entire relationship.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Exercise - Design your own Pre-talk. S
03:11

As we bring this section to a close, Steve will do a quick summary and then point to the next section.

End of Section Comments. S
02:14
+ Setting Outcomes & Directions.
30 lectures 03:49:52

Welcome to Section 3!

In this section you will be learning how to set outcomes and directions; a fundamental part of being a masterful coach.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Introduction to the Section. S
08:36

Steve will be re-visiting the 'present state to desired state' model, giving further important distinctions and relating it to outcome setting.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Present State to Desired State - further distinctions. S
09:26

To be a modern coach you need to take your goal setting beyond SMART and add in a missing ingredient.

Brian tells you what that missing ingredient is and introduces the first step in a goal setting model that will help your clients (and you) achieve more than you ever dreamed possible


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Well Formed Outcome model - State in the Positive. B
05:39

Now your goal setting skills are developing, let;s move onto stage 2.  

Brian shows you how to develop a goal into something that your clients can imagine and embody from the moment the goal is set.

COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Well Formed Outcome Model - Sensory Rich. B
02:14

After Brian's description covering the first 2 steps, Steve gives his take on them, adding further important distinctions.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Well Formed Outcome - Steve's take. S
08:21

Now for step 3 in the well formed outcome model: resources. Steve will be discussing - with examples - how 'resources' are the crucial piece that helps us go from where we are to where we want to be.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Well Formed Outcome - Resources. S
09:37

Now for step 4 in the well formed outcome model: Ecology. Ecology is to do with how the outcome fits into the various other aspects of the client's life. This is hugely important to consider in order to minimise conflicts.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Well Formed Outcome - Ecology. S
09:46

Brian tells the story of how one, life changing training course set his life on a path that did not fit the principles of a Well Formed Outcome even though, on first glance, it looked like he was on course to do exactly what he wanted to do.

A tale of why Well Formed Outcomes are the goal setting model of every top coach.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Ecology - Brian's story. B
05:36

From theory to practice...

In this video, Steve will outline a practical exercise to help you embed the well-formed outcome model.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Exercise - Well Formed Outcomes. S
01:56

Whether you are interested in golf or not, you will get a lot from this story. Steve will summarise much of what you've learned about well-formed outcomes through a personal story: the tale of two golf coaches.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

The Tale of Two Coaches. S
09:50

A powerful technique that blends visualisation with the power of your Well Formed Outcome to engage the client's unconscious mind.

In this first of three videos explaining this incredible process, Brian explains why visualisation is so powerful and how to help your clients enter into any visualisation process easily.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Create your own Future Process intro. B
05:40

How does your mind process time?  Have you ever thought of that?  And what if it was possible to 'move' your mind in time, to go forward and backwards and shift yourself through days, weeks, months and years just by using your imagination.

Now, as a coach, how could we use that to help our clients make their goals even more real?

Brian explains time (not in a Stephen Hawking kinda way, more in a coachy kinda way)


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Create your own Future - Your Timeline. B
06:49

Now you have the building blocks, Brian explains how the full Create Your Future process works and how to take a client through it step by step.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Create Your own Future - process explanation. B
05:05

One of the best ways to learn any coaching skill is to experience it first hand.  In this special video, Brian asks you to choose a goal and experience the Create Your Future process first hand as he guides you through a version of the technique. 

Make sure you have some peace and quiet for this and that for the 8 minutes of this video you won't be disturbed.  

Don't skip it!!  Take the time, there is no rush.  Sit back, relax and enjoy the Create Your Future Experience


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Exercise - Create your own Future. B
00:40

Now that you've learned about specific outcomes, it's time to pan the camera back and look at setting overall directions. This is a powerful way to help propel a client towards a more useful place. In this video, you will learn the difference between an outcome and a direction.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Difference between an Outcome and a Direction. S
08:56

In this video, Steve will be building on the previous one, adding extra distinctions and clarifying further.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Outcomes & Directions - Exercise & further distinctions. S
06:20

From detail to global...

In this lecture, you will be learning the NLP meta-program of global versus detail. A crucial piece of NLP theory when understanding the difference between an outcome and a direction.

Global to Detail strategy - the Wheel of Life
09:03

Neurological Levels is not to do with the science of the mind, but rather our subject experience and how it can be represented in multiple layers. This fascinating and highly useful model can be used for many different purposes, with one being outcome & direction setting. 


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Introducing Neurological Levels. S
09:48

We are starting at the bottom and working our way up.  Brian explains the bottom three levels of the Neurological Levels and how they can frustrate people who believe they hold the key to change yet actually just continually keep people stuck.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Neurological Levels - first 3 levels. B
03:54

The 3 factors that make the difference to all change.  As a coach, these are the levels you want to be impacting and changing as this is where life long, sustainable change is hiding for every single person on the planet.

Many of the world's most succesful and motivated people are fortunate enough to understand this without knowing how they know it.  Now let Brian show you the three levels that unlock ongoing resilience, tenacity and motivation in every single one of your clients 


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Neurological Levels - Top 3 levels. B
06:50

Another powerful aspect of neurological levels is that it helps client's connect with greater levels of meaning. In this video, you will learn how this works by hearing about one of Steve's favourite hobbies.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Neurological Levels and Meaning. S
11:55

+ Creating Motivation & Momentum.
20 lectures 02:09:27

Welcome to section 4! In this section you will be exploring a how to create momentum and motivation.

In this lecture, Steve will do a quick re-cap of the overall coaching model and then set the scene for the section.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Introduction to the Section. S
08:16

Values are areas in life that we deem to be important. Values are of critical importance as a coach. By eliciting a client's values you can help them become more fulfilled and also help them access more of their own natural, up-front motivation.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

What are Values? S
11:07

What is and what is not a value?  Is Money a value?  Is a job a value? Brian explains how to spot the difference between a want and a value.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Values as Emotional States. B
06:30

One of the cognitive functions of the mind is the process of categorisation. By learning about this process you can more effectively understand how values work in the different areas of our lives.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

The Process of Categorisation. S
09:45

In this exercise, Steve will outline a quick exercise. We'd like you to consider a simple question: What's important to you?


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Quick Exercise - What's Important to You?
01:35

The best way to learn about values is to hear about how they work in real life.  In this video, Brian tells you the beginning of a story from his case book and sets you a challenge to test your understanding of how you can use values in your coaching.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Values - Brian's Client Example 1. B
04:18

Brian explains the values at play in his case study and how the clues were there from the very beginning.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Values - Brian's Client Example 2. B
03:13

Now that you understand what values are and how important they are to your client's outcomes, Brian takes you through the process for discovering your client's values quickly and accurately


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


How to Elicit Values. B
12:16

As well as eliciting a  person's values it is also important to elicit the client's definition of these values. They are subjective, so to increase the level of precision you have as a coach, it's important to find out what they mean to the client. In this video, Steve will be exploring this idea.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Values - The Devil is in the Definition. S
03:09

Brian sits Steve down, climbs inside his mind and pulls back out a fascinating set of values.  Your opportunity to watch a live demonstration of all the techniques you have been learning about.

It's time for you to have a go and, as Brian explains, the best client to do this with may be much closer than you think.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)


Exercise: Values Elicitation. B
01:28

In this video, Steve will explain how to create outcomes through values. This is is an incredibly useful approach to use to increase a person's level of fulfilment.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Using Values to Create Outcomes. S
05:26

In this video, Steven will explain an exercise you can do to start creating outcome from values.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Exercise: Outcomes from Values. S
02:27

As well as eliciting a person's up-front motivation - through values - it is also useful to create a propulsion system. In this video, Steve will introduce you the 'threshold principle' which is made use of to create one of these.


COACHING SKILLS MASTERY (NLP LIFE COACHING & BEYOND)

Introducing Propulsion Systems. S
07:55

One element of creating a propulsion system is the meta-program 'away from pain & towards pleasure'. In this video, Steve will outline this and illustrate how it can be used to build up motivation in your clients.
