Meta-States “Genius” Series (APG)

Back in the 1970s NLP began in Santa Cruz California. That was the place where NLP was launched. That is where we have had two leadership conferences, one Visionary Leadership Conference in 1997 and the other Millennial Project in 2000.

You’re Uniquely Qualified to do….. Anything

Think about something you’re not good at that you wish you were. How would you like to be so good at it that you could teach it?

CHARISMA by Damon Cart

Charisma often comes up in NLP trainings for trainers. Some NLP Trainer Trainings are even called Charisma Training. Who doesn’t want to be more charismatic especially if you desire speaking in front of large groups of people?

Welcome to our new website.
When we got started in NLP training we saw these amazing teachers and wanted to have their skills so badly. So we asked what did you do to get there. The answer was practice, practice, practice. Lots of practice is what separates the greats from those who are just okay at NLP.
But what is the best way to practice? Although there is tons of great information and drills in

A Useful Approach to Learning NLP Faster Than You Thought Possible by Damon Cart

I often hear the question “What’s the best way to learn NLP?” or “How can I learn NLP quickly?” The answer I often start with and the answer I was often told is practice. It’s an answer that does not satisfy most people but it is the difference that makes the difference when it comes to people who are okay at NLP and people who are great at it.

I heard Tim Hallbom speak the words of the title of this article once during one of his trainings. I don’t know if he was the first to say it or if he heard it from someone else and was just repeating it, but it was something I already knew deep down and had experienced.

Engineering the Quality of Experience Through Meta Programs

As he flipped through it he said, “This is amazing. You know back in the early days we use to have what we called a Meta-Journal that was kind of like this.”
The Meta-Journal was a written notebook that Robert and others
