Course details

During five days, with NLP Academy Founder, Michael Carroll, you will take a deep dive into NLP Core Skills for personal and professional excellence. You can attend this immersive experience either live in Portugal or online.


NLP began originally as the study of excellence, when the NLP co-founders modelled a group of Change Agents who were consistently producing amazing results in their work to enable people to totally change their mindset and break free of their limitations.


At this NLP Core Skills course, you will learn NLP tools and techniques for reading body language as well as patterns for non-verbal influence, deep rapport, effective communication and persuasion.


The tools you learn here can be applied in any area of life such as business excellence, personal excellence, education, parenting and relationships, in fact any life area which involves engaging positively with people.


You can also apply what you learn to engage with yourself more positively, break free of your own limiting patens to live your life with more freedom, more positivity and more joy.

The learnings from The NLP Core Skills Diploma have a lifelong application for use across different areas ranging from family communication, to business influence and life leadership. NLP is often referred to as the study of excellence, and this module goes to the core of that principle offering you a unique opportunity to address what has held you back previously and reach for excellence across all life areas.
