Syllabus

Give Your Clients a Breakthrough in Every Session!

Our NLP-Integrated Life Coach Training is organized by our Universal Coaching ModelTM which features the Five Phases of a Coaching Session. This coaching model keeps your session on track so you’ll feel confident you are on the right path to your client’s session goal.

Phase 1: 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.

Phase 2: The Information Gathering Phase
Learn the right questions to ask at the right time, providing AHA moments and a surge of motivation. Quality information gathering will reveal the specific goal for the session, as well as what needs to be done to get there.

Phase 3: The Transformation Phase
In this phase, you will learn the optimal conditions for facilitating change, as well as the most influential kinds of change you can achieve inside a coaching session.

Phase 4: The Integration Phase
Using our Coach-Do model, you will learn how to help clients take action on the insights and newfound motivation that arises in their coaching sessions.

Phase 5: The Wrap-up & Homework Phase
Some of the most important coaching can happen if you know how to leverage the power of homework so your clients can continue making progress between sessions. Do this well and your client will grow.

NLP-Integrated Life Coach Training earn 3 certificates!

Each group mentoring class consists of less than 10 participants.


Master Coach Training

(Included in the Master Coach and Mental Health Coach Certification Tracks Only)

Whereas the NLP-Life Coach Training was focused on learning our Universal Coaching Model and applicable NLP tools, our Master Coach Training focuses first on generating examples and then applying existing coaching models (and often realize new ones). This unique, inductive learning style mirrors the actual process of life coaching.

Master Life Coach Certificate
  • Learn to coach in a way that builds your natural intuition
  • Discover your ability to think on your feet
  • See in your clients what they have never seen in themselves
  • Help clients develop inner wisdom
  • Understand how limiting beliefs work and how to change them
  • Help clients develop a deeper sense of who they are

The Master Coach Training includes the ICF Coach Mentoring classes and can be completed in as little as 6 weeks.


Mental Health Coach Training

(Included in the Mental Health Coach Certification Track Only)

Want to take your training higher and your clients deeper?

Get read to take a deep journey through your own parts and into your core self. Most students who complete this training report that it is the most meaningful life coaching experience they have ever had and use the tools on a regular basis with their clients.

Once completed, you will be able to help your clients:

  • Calm down. Out-of-control parts are perhaps the biggest psychological stressors. And stress is no small health concern. Do you have an inner critic? This is just a part of you that you can influence using our mental health coach model.
  • Find their true self. We can live our entire life not knowing who we are. It is such a vague, nebulous question: Who are you? The parts model both clarifies and enhances your sense of self. Many experience their true self for the first time in this kind of training.
  • End self-sabotage. You might think of self-sabotage as one part of you wanting to do something that inhibits you or other parts of you. When a part of you wants something harmful, you can mediate that desire by communicating with that part. It works!
  • Always know how to grow. Our parts model provides a simple and constructive framework for self-improvement. When you are aware of your personality parts and how to work with them, the growth opportunities are limitless.

The Mental Health Coach Training can be taken concurrently with the Master Coach Training. Completion time is 10 weeks.

Training Modules

Life Coach Training Modules

Module 1: Intro to Life Coaching & Your Coaching Vision

  • Explore your Coaching Niche & Discover Your Coaching Vision
  • Attend a Coaching Vision & Marketing Session to discuss future plans
  • Kick-off Your Life Coach Training with a Success Plan

The first module of your Life Coach Certification is where your coaching career vision begins. We will 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 are most worried about.

Attend a live class to review your coaching vision and marketing direction. We will help you develop a plan of action to work on during your life coach certification course and clear marketing direction after completion.

Module 2: The Confident Coach Mindset

  • 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 program, you will learn to change those mindsets that do not budge on their own.

Module 3: The Structure of a Life Coaching Session

  • 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 you will be introduced to the iNLP Center Universal Coaching Model (UCM). This unique coaching system eliminates the mystery behind effective coaching by revealing the Five Phases of a Coaching Session. You will learn specifically how effective life coaching sessions work and a powerful, step-by-step system for success.

Module 4: The Pre-Coaching Phase

  • 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 will learn how to read your clients non-verbal communication and tap into a deeper connection with them.

Module 5: The Information Gathering Phase

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

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

Module 6: NLP Coaching Models

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

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

Module 7: NLP Communication Models

  • Learn to recognize the most important things clients say
  • Know how to systematically ask questions to go deeper
  • Learn to read people 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 others speak, what if you could instantly recognize the most valuable information? A good life coach certification gives you the communication skills that paint a clear picture of the most important questions to ask, even though someone may present a variety of information.

Module 8: The Transformation Phase

  • 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 obstacles. This is the transformation phase of life coaching. Techniques are not everything, but the right technique at the right time works wonders to get unstuck and move ahead.

In this Transformation Phase module, you will learn the optimal conditions for facilitating change, as well as the most influential kinds of change you can achieve inside a coaching session.

Module 9: Cultivating Self-Awareness with NLP

  • 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

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.

Module 10: Building Inner Resource with NLP

  • Make solid decisions
  • Motivate yourself 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 new 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 will deliver those results.

Module 11: The Past, Future, and Goal Setting with NLP

  • 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.

Module 12: Transforming Stuck States with NLP

  • 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. Helping people get unstuck is not the gift of a few lucky people. You will learn some of the best techniques ever developed to transform negative states and habitual behaviors into a non-issue.

Module 13: The Integration Phase

  • 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 do not result in new behaviors. An overlooked part of many coaching cycles is the actions taken between sessions.

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

Module 14: The Wrap-Up and Homework Phase

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 is important to understand the purpose of each and match that purpose to their needs. Do this well and your clientele will grow.

Module 15: Life Coach Skills Review

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

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

Module 16: Bonus Coaching Models

  • 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 generously given the iNLP Center permission to teach it to you.

The Criteria for Psychological Safety is a iNLP Center model geared towards reducing anxiety and getting to a place where one feels safe. You will learn how to recognize your criteria for personal safety to achieve your goals in a more effective way.

What is NLP?

NLP Coaching Skills are the KEY 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.
