    Miracles still happen with NLP! There are a lot of “magic moments” in the 15 day Health Certification Training. This is the program where you will learn to take NLP beyond techniques and learn to operate more intuitively and fluidly. This is the training experience where you can learn to “work miracles” for yourself and your clients. Now that you have your Master Practitioner level skills, it is time to take what you’ve learned to the next level, and truly become more “unconsciously competent” using your NLP skills.

    Robert, Tim, Suzi and Kris have continually made this program better and the advanced skills easier to master. You will learn in your own way, yet experience lots of feedback from skilled people. There will never be a better time to take this advanced NLP program, or to take the class again and learn exciting new techniques. You will master the use of NLP at the levels of belief, identity, and Spirit to work more effectively with yourself and others.

    Join a fabulous group of like-minded people and gain more skills, more choices, and an experience you will treasure for a lifetime. We guarantee that your experience in this program will bring profound change to your life. The Health Training covers much more than physical health. You will also learn strategies for creating a rich and fulfilling life.

    Don’t miss this opportunity – it only happens every other year, and is your best choice for your personal and professional development! Register online here.

    Generative Collaboration:
    Success Factor Modeling Volume II

    Generative Collaboration is the second volume in Robert's Success Factor Modeling series. Generative Collaboration involves people working together to create or generate something new, surprising and beyond the capacities of any of the group members individually. Through Generative Collaboration, individuals are able to utilize their abilities to the fullest and discover and apply resources that they did not yet realize that they had. They draw new ideas and resources out of each other. Thus, the performance or output of the group as a whole is much greater than it would be if the individuals were working by themselves.
