Mike Bundrant, co-founder of iNLP Center, is an NLP Master Practitioner, INA Fellow Trainer and retired psychotherapist (NM). He became a certified NLP practitioner in 1993 by taking a 27-day NLP certification course from Western States Training in Salt Lake City, UT. Tim Hallbom and Suzi Smith were co-trainers then. He was certified by Michael Grinder.
He then jumped right on master track at that point by going to Santa Fe, NM and taking a 21-day intensive from NLP Santa Fe’s Jake Eagle and Nelson Zink. It was so worthwhile, he moved to New Mexico and joined the NLP Santa Fe training team to learn how to be a trainer.
In 1995, Mike had the opportunity to develop an NLP training presence in Toyko, Japan. Mike was the first American to conduct a full-fledged NLP practitioner certification in Japan. He designed and taught several NLP courses every year as a master trainer, and had been fortunate enough to make two trips a year over the next 17 years, to Tokyo, sponsored by the great Kazuhiko Umemoto of Team Medicine and supported by the world’s best translator, Nobuko Kobayashi. The programs Mike taught in Japan were certified by INA.
Mike co-wrote a book with Jake Eagle called Holistic NLP, that was published in Japan in 2007. It represents their unique approach to the field. I provide the digital version of it to my online students free of charge.
After 17 years of conducting in-person trainings, Mike and Hope decided to take the NLP courses and certification programs online, founding the iNLP Center. Mike’s disappointment at how NLP was advertised and perceived drove him to create an honest curriculum that doesn’t hype NLP or pretend it will give you magical powers. It’s a wonderful set of skills that is sure to enhance your life. Is that enough?
Because of NLP and the success of the iNLP Center as a world leader in online NLP and Life Coach training, Mike’s been fortunate enough in life to do exactly what he wants. He couldn’t ask for anything more. Mike heads up course development and advanced coach training, as well as discovering new coaching models.
