What is an NLP Trainer?

An NLP Trainer has already successfully completed the trainings as NLP Practitioner, NLP Master and NLP Trainer and can conduct NLP trainings themself.

NLP Trainer Training

With the NLP trainer training you create the prerequisites to be able to train in NLP yourself. An NLP trainer should live NLP. They should be an authentic example of how to live and train with elegance and flexibility. Their tools and methods allow them to inspire and motivate themself as well as other human beings. The NLP Trainer Training helps them to develop into a congruent and authentic trainer.

The NLP trainer training teaches effective techniques to inspire your audience as a teacher, trainer or presenter. The participants of the NLP trainer Training learn how to design courses in a brain-friendly way and how to make the seminar entertaining and exciting.

The training to become an NLP trainer according to the standards of the IN (International Association of NLP-Institutes) addresses two target groups. On the one hand, the training provides the necessary skills and knowledge to conduct NLP trainings yourself. Your NLP know-how is tested both theoretically and practically. On the other hand, the training is interesting for participants who would like to design their courses, lectures and workshops professionally with the help of NLP.

The NLP training to become a trainer is about the development and growth of your own congruence and authenticity. It is about becoming a living example of what you teach. It is also about applying NLP at the highest level, expanding your pedagogical and communicative skills, developing a respect for yourself and other people and their model.

"The training as NLP trainer at Landsiedel NLP Training was a very important milestone in my life. Besides extremely useful training tools, exercises and new formats, a very special highlight was the successful (professional) practice transfer for working with groups. For me personally, the trainer training was a very deep experience in terms of faith, values and convictions - especially under the professional guidance of the two trainers: Carlos Saldago and Stephan Landsiedel."
