Online, on Zoom

Course Description

Have you ever noticed that some people see the glass as half empty and others see it as half full? Have you ever felt that some people see the world as you do and others just don’t? This is because we tend to pay attention to different things, which in turn affects our behaviors.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a model for studying human behaviour and communication. NLP helps you to understand how people take in, store and process information, giving you a deeper and advanced understanding of human psychology and behaviour.

Drawing from over 30 years of experience, Professor Joel Lee will share with you frameworks and techniques from NLP to identifying what makes people tick. This course provides bite-sized and accessible lessons packed with rich insights to enable you to unlock personality preferences in yourself and others.

You will learn the personality preferences that affect motivation, decision making and communication. You will learn how to identify these preferences through language and behaviour, and to adapt your language and behaviour to more effectively connect with those preferences. You will be able to apply these techniques immediately to enhance your communication, be it in your business, organisation, or personal life.

We look forward to you joining us in this course, and taking one step closer to solving the People Puzzle!
