Seminars Unique Approach to Training
provide you with the best training available, you will find a
number of unique characteristics of our training programs:
1. Customized Training to Meet Your Specific Needs
will always have one main trainer teaching the entire course.
Guest trainers and assistants are used, but you will always have
one trainer with you throughout the program. One main trainer
is important because then he can adjust to group needs. He will
spend more time on one subject, and less on another depending
upon the group's speed. This format also allows the trainer to
be able to get to know each student's needs and be able to meet
those needs in a more thorough fashion. This is the only way to
guarantee a high quality experience for each student. If you are
interested in getting experience from a variety of trainers, go
to a conference. At a conference you can pick up a little bit
of information from each teacher. "When you really want to
learn the skills and make them a part of your life, come to IDEA
Seminars where the training format is designed around YOUR needs,
rather than a standard format."

Whole Mind/Whole Body Learning
the training, you will take part in a series of simple, fun and
enjoyable physical exercises that enhance whole-brain learning
by using cross-lateral movements. These movements enable you to
access those parts of your brain previously inaccessible. They
assist in spelling, writing, listening, reading and comprehension.
It also improves left/right coordination, breathing and stamina,
coordination and spatial awareness, hearing and vision.
research has shown that movement, especially those that cross
the body's lateral midline, have positive effects on learning.
Cross-lateral movement has been discovered to stimulate, release
and relax students, as well as assist them move through learning
blocks. Contralateral movements are effective because they stimulate
the receptive as well as the expressive hemispheres of the brain,
facilitating integrated learning.
Choice is Freedom
IDEA Seminars point of view, NLP is about adding more choices
to our lives, not about adding more rules. Participants reach
a point in every training where they have learned to exercise
personal choice in their lives. When they achieve this level of
learning, their entire world opens up and they learn what it is
like to have pure freedom. They realize they are no longer imprisoned
by their past thoughts and feelings or by other's words or actions.
We teach people this because we firmly believe in the old adage:
you can give a man a fish and he can eat for a day, but if you
teach a man how to fish, he can eat for a lifetime
Self-Change vs. Therapeutic Techniques
is famous for the therapeutic techniques like the phobia cure.
Unfortunately, many of the techniques are meant to be performed
by a therapist on a client. Many people searching for their own
solutions come to NLP training only to learn how to do techniques
with other people rather than how to make changes in their own
life. Realizing this, IDEA Seminars has developed a training design,
known as Mind Design, that allows our students to learn
NLP in the context of self-development and self-change, rather
than learning it to do a technique on someone else. We have spent
years developing Mind Design to allow students to use the
principles and concepts of NLP for their own personal growth.
NEW "MIND DESIGN" (TM) TECHNOLOGY WILL ENSURE YOUR SUCCESS
also benefit from our new Mind Design (TM) system. No one else
has it. Perhaps that's why no one else is consistently getting
the results our students get (see student evaluations under "The
Experience"). Mind Design (TM) is based on brain-based,
accelerated learning, and Linguistic Suggestions to "pre-expose"
your brain to concepts before they're taught to you. It will enable
you to acquire new behaviors more quickly than ever before and
keep them for life. It really works!
very, very big mistake that other seminars make is when they present
information piece by piece in a linear (i.e.: boring), step-by-step
fashion. They are unknowingly doing a great disservice to their
students. This is a terrible mistake because there is no "puzzle"
for the brain to figure out. So the brain goes "O.K. I get
it", and acquires the information, but does NOT integrate
the skill into your daily behavior. And this information is quickly
forgotten, because the brain did not have to think a little to
figure it out.
have tons of fun, yet be challenged rigorously to stretch
yourself and grow tremendously."
Mind Design (TM) you will discover how to easily and quickly move
through moments of confusion. This will help you absorb the information
like a sponge, and use the information so it becomes part of you.
In addition, you'll now have a system to learn anything more quickly
and enjoyably. Whether it's figuring out how to program your VCR,
learning a new software program, or absorbing all the information
there is on a given subject, such as NLP.
the right questions are critical in all training environments.
Questions cause the brain to search for an answer. Once a question
is answered the brain shuts down, because there is nothing left
to search for. The puzzle is solved! That's why with Mind Design
(TM) your questions will be answered in a way that causes your
brain to keep searching, thus keeping the brain open to learning.
You'll also learn a questioning process that you can use on yourself,
to direct your brain to create all the behaviors, thoughts, and
feelings that you now want to have.
learn the principles and methodology behind the techniques. This
way you can whip up a technique any time you want one. You get
to be the architect of your brain. You'll be able to design whatever
you want, rather than following someone else's formula. To only
teach techniques is extremely limiting, because you only have
one way of doing something. This is what's happening when you
hear people saying "What Do I Do When...?". Wouldn't
it be great to have many different options available in your NLP
Tool Kit? Only then will you become an NLP Artist, someone who
always knows what to do or say next.
