Part 1: All Tracks Start with our Life Coach Certification Online Training

NLP-Integrated Life Coach Certification Training

Part One is our NLP and Coach foundation training. It is organized around our Universal Coaching Model which focuses on learning NLP and coaching skills within the “5 phases of a coaching session“. This structure:

  • Keeps you on track with your client from the beginning to end
  • Teaches you how to utilize foundational and advanced NLP tools most effectively
  • Includes worksheets for each coaching phase and session sheets to utilize with your clients
NLP Life Coach Certification Syllabus
  • You’ll also be attending 30 live sessions as you work your way through these modules.
  • This training portion will take approximately 170 hours to complete.

Here’s what you’ll learn in each of the Life Coach Training Modules:

1: Intro to Life Coaching & Your Coaching Vision

  • Explore your Coaching Niche & Discover Your Coaching Vision
  • Attend a Coaching Vision Session with iNLP Center Co-Founder, Mike Bundrant
  • Kick-off Your Life Coach Training with a Success Plan

The first module of your Life Coach Certification Online Training is where your vision begins. We’ll take you step-by-step through the elements that go into creating your coaching vision – your business goals, your coaching niche, how much you should charge, and even what you’re most worried about.

Attend a coaching vision session with iNLP Center co-founder, Mike Bundrant, to review your coaching vision. He’ll help you clarify your vision and develop a plan of action to work on during your life coach training and clear direction after completion.

  • Master emotional states
  • Transform blocks into positive resources
  • Apply optimism to any situation
  • Learn new behavioral skills quickly

The coaching mindset is fundamental. Nothing affects behavior as much as a mindset. Sometimes you can change your mindset and feelings as an act of will. Other states of mind are difficult to change. In this life coach certification online training, you will learn to change those mindsets that don’t budge on their own.

  • Never get lost in a life coaching session
  • Have confidence that you always know what to do next
  • Lead clients naturally to the results they seek

In this module of your coach training, you’ll be introduced to the iNLP Center Universal Life Coaching model. This unique coaching system eliminates the mystery behind effective coaching by revealing the Five Phases of a Coaching Session. You’ll learn specifically how effective life coaching sessions work and a powerful, step-by-step system for doing them yourself.

  • Know how to start a coaching session right
  • Create deep rapport with clients quickly
  • Inspire greater trust ethically
  • Master non-verbal communication

Certain things need to happen before great coaching can begin and they happen in the Pre-Coaching phase.

This is when you must begin the rapport and trust-building process. To create a deep connection with your clients, you need to move beyond verbal rapport to establish a powerful, non-verbal connection. In this module, you’ll learn how to read your clients’ non-verbal communication and tap into a deeper connection with them.

  • Always know which question to ask
  • Set the coaching up for success by seeing the big picture
  • Lead the client to breakthrough insights
  • Proceed to coaching techniques with confidence because you’ve got the right information

If you want to become a world-class life coach, you’ll learn the right questions to ask at the right time, providing a-ha moments and a surge of motivation to your clients. Done well, quality information gathering will reveal the specific goal for any life coaching session, as well as what needs to be done to get there. It’s like rising above a maze and suddenly seeing the path out.

  • Serve as an expert guide for your clients
  • Know which techniques to apply and when
  • Identify the best opportunities for clients to grow

Life coach certification is the process of learning to use coaching maps to guide clients toward their goals. It’s important to understand that life coaching can’t happen without coaching models. Coaching conversations are not aimless social interactions, they are intended to go in a positive direction toward a new destination for the client.

  • Learn to recognize the most important things clients say
  • Know how to systematically ask questions to go deeper
  • Learn to read clients to discover how they are thinking
  • Find the hidden assumptions in communication keep people stuck

Communication is complex so you need models to guide you. Like coaching models, communication models are maps that show you how to direct communication toward a positive outcome.

As you listen to clients speak, what if you could instantly recognize the most valuable information? Good life coach certification gives you the communication skills that paint a clear picture of the most important questions to ask, even though a client may present a variety of information.

  • Know when to use techniques for change
  • Recognize the most powerful kinds of change
  • Implement change techniques with precision

This module includes a toolbox of techniques for overcoming the client’s obstacles. This is the transformation phase of life coaching. Techniques aren’t everything, but the right technique at the right time works wonders to move clients ahead.

In the Transformation Phase of your life coach training, you’ll learn the optimal conditions for facilitating change, as well as the most influential kinds of change you can achieve inside a coaching session.

  • Discover the hidden structure of thoughts and feelings
  • Eliminate the impact of negative thoughts and feelings
  • Breakthrough and break free of self-imposed limitations
  • Gain unparalleled insight into relationships with NLP Perceptual Positions

The NLP transformation tools in this module are the hidden structure behind every thought and feeling you can have. These maps of the mind are not taught anywhere but in NLP coach training. Knowing, specifically, how your inner life works, gives you the keys to change.

  • Make solid decisions
  • Motivate yourself easily and others easily
  • Create customized strategies for success
  • Understand key drivers of human behavior
  • Access empowered states of excellence at will

Wanting something is never enough; you also need to be empowered and have an effective strategy for success. You can build inner resources by learning strategies, mental building blocks, and formulas, to create any result on the inside before producing it in the world.

Clients want results. If you have the tools to help them turn bad decision-making around, motivate themselves effortlessly, and create states of excellence whenever they need, you’ll deliver those results.

  • Set goals that draw upon your strengths and avoid obstacles
  • Identify and overcome the right obstacles
  • Change your perception of the past and future to support your goals
  • Feel more excitement, curiosity, and self-confidence
  • Let go of the past and program your future for success
  • Harmonize the past and future to create learning and motivation

A life coach training must have a focus on goal-setting. Learn how to harness all your resources, anticipate obstacles, and look at goals through a holistic lens.

At the iNLP Center, we take things a step further by giving you the NLP methods that put the entire past and future in perspective. This will give you the opportunity to help move your client beyond past programming and set them up for a bright future.

  • Overcome fears that block progress
  • Access and maintain positive mindsets on purpose
  • Change limiting mindsets into resourceful ones
  • Overcome bad habits with creative new solutions
  • Turn any negative into a positive

The ability to help some get unstuck and move forward in their life is the signature of a skilled life coach. The iNLP Center life coach certification will give you the tools to do this consistently. Helping people get unstuck is not the gift of a few lucky people. It’s a skill set that can be learned in this module. You’ll know some of the best techniques ever developed to transform negative states and habitual behaviors into a non-issue for your clients.

  • Learn to set your clients up for success between sessions
  • Know the best kind of homework assignments to give
  • Establish accountability with clients to keep them motivated
  • Make the breakthroughs in coaching sessions count

All the mindset shifts in the world mean little if they don’t result in new behaviors. An overlooked part of many coaching cycles is the actions the client takes between sessions.

Using our Coach-Do model, you’ll learn how to help clients take action on the insights and newfound motivation that arises in their coaching sessions. You’ll learn how to set positive expectations with clients and give customized homework assignments that they’ll be excited to do. This is the work of integration, a skill set every life coach must have!

As a session wraps up, some of the most important coaching can happen if you know how to leverage the power of homework. There are three kinds of homework you can give your clients so they continue making progress between sessions. It’s important to understand the purpose of each and match that purpose to your client’s needs. Do this well and your clientele will grow like never before.

  • Develop lasting confidence as a coach through real experience
  • Practice coaching in front of your trainer for immediate feedback
  • Observe coaching sessions
  • Learn from coaches with 25+ years of life coach training expertise
  • Pass your life coach certification online and move ahead in your coaching business

It’s time to complete your life coach certification course with a thorough review of the coaching skills you’ve learned. Through simulations, role-plays, and real coaching with others, you’ll begin to feel coaching confidence that will propel you forward into success as a life coach!

  • Deep self-acceptance
  • Tame the angry, rebellious, hidden or outcast parts of yourself
  • Experience your core state for perhaps the first time

Core Transformation is one of the deepest and most sophisticated processes to create a state of wholeness, oneness, peace, or connection to the universe in the field of NLP. The method was developed by Connie Rae Andreas, who has given the iNLP Center permission to teach it.

The Criteria for Psychological Safety is a model geared towards reducing anxiety and getting to a place where we feel safe. You’ll learn how to recognize your criteria for personal safety to achieve your goals in a more effective way.

NLP Coaching Tools

NLP Tools are the Keys to Effective Coaching

NLP is a set of models that allows someone to create cognitive behavioral change and build more resourceful states to achieve their goals. NLP is short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. NLP models teach you how to see problems from new perspectives to find better solutions. NLP holds a vast library of tools and techniques that one can access to solve any problem they may face. This flexibility is what makes NLP the most suitable training for coaches in any niche or everyday people trying to move forward in their lives.

how to be a certified life coach

You’ll Master these skills by the end of this training:

A single, powerful question can change the direction of a life coaching session and place a client firmly on the path to success. No life coach training or certification course should be without powerful language tools. You need to discover what’s behind the words and open the client’s minds to new possibilities.

  • Always know the right question to ask
  • Understand complex situations quickly
  • Uncover the right obstacles to goals
  • Gain critical insight when nothing is obvious

Being stuck is caused by the meaning we make out of any situation. When you can change the meaning you make, you can free yourself. You’ll learn how to reframe any situation to get unstuck.

  • Redefine any situation to make it useful and productive
  • Develop world-class mental flexibility and insight
  • Develop strategies to achieve positive emotional states
  • Change “impossible” behaviors
  • Never get stuck again!

Most people try to understand others by listening to their words, but there is so much more! If you want uncommon insight into people, you’ll learn to interpret non-verbal communication. Then you’ll be in a rare class of people who get paid to offer insights and direction.

  • Create rapport and trust based on the right cues from clients.
  • Discover new and important growth opportunities for clients.
  • “Read” others and know how to help without getting lost.

Knowing how to build rapport with your client is a key to not only coaching them but turning a coaching inquiry into a paying client. Gaining rapport and the trust of your clients aren’t limited to just verbal skills. There’s a whole level of subconscious common ground you need to have. This gives your clients that gut feeling that they can trust you. If you’re trustworthy, you should make it fast and easy for your clients to know it.

  • Create rapport with clients faster
  • Inspire greater trust ethically
  • Become a master of non-verbal communication
  • Become a highly influential person
  • Understand your client better

A life coach training without a focus on goal-setting isn’t life coach training at all! Learn how to help your clients harness all their resources, anticipate obstacles, and look at their goals through a holistic lens to realize and achieve their desired outcomes.

  • Make goals achievable
  • Identify and overcome the right obstacles
  • Get specifically what you want from your life!

Wanting something is never enough, you also need an effective strategy to get there. Making solid decisions and motivating yourself under any circumstance is a matter of strategy. Learn inner strategies – the mental building blocks and formulas – to produce any result on the inside before creating it in the world.

  • Make solid decisions
  • Motivate yourself easily and others easily
  • Create strategies for success
  • Understand key drivers of human behavior

Can you imagine taking a life coach training that does not teach specific skills to help you influence your clients toward change? Clients pay to be influenced in a positive direction. How can you influence them with integrity and respect?

  • Gain greater influence in the most respectful way
  • Effectively motivate, encourage, and inspire others
  • Help others access internal resources
  • Gracefully guide people through problems and decision

The past and the future are organized in our minds. For most people, time is structured unconsciously, so they don’t know how to intentionally learn from the past and stay motivated toward a bright future. Successful people know how to capture the best of past experiences, focus on the future see the big picture as well. How you think about life determines the results you get.

  • Change the perception of past and future to support your goals
  • Feel more excited, curious, and confident
  • Let go of the past and program your future for greater success
  • See the big picture to create positive expectations
  •  Harmonize the past and future to create learning and motivation

  • Solve misunderstandings quickly
  • Develop greater perspective and compassion
  • Radically increase self-awareness
  • Make relationship decisions wisely
  • Let go of past, harmful relationships
