At Inspiritive we are constantly striving to adapt our training programmes to the latest trends in the business world so you, our clients, can derive the most relevant possible results in regards to current trends.

According to Forbes Magazine, a major study has been completed of human capital trends around the world (Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends, 2,500 organizations in 90 countries) and the message is clear:

“Companies are struggling to engage our modern, 21st century workforce.”

“This is a worldwide issue., Gallup research shows that only 13% of employees around the world are actively engaged at work, and more than twice that number are so disengaged they are likely to spread negativity to others.” confirms Forbes magazine in its article.

Some statistic shared by Forbes magazine from the research study are as follows:

  • 86% of business and HR leaders believe they do not have an adequate leadership pipeline (38% see it as an urgent problem)
  • 79% believe they have a significant retention and engagement problem (26% see it as urgent)
  • 77% do not feel they have the right HR skills to address the issue (25% urgent)
  • 75% are struggling to attract and recruiting the top people they need (24% urgent)
  • Only 17% feel they have a compelling and engaging employment brand
  • Only 6% believe their current process for managing performance is worth the time, 58% called their process ‘weak’, with North American companies 20% worse than the rest of the world.

The 10970NAT Graduate Certificate NLP – A corporate approach

NLP is a unique discipline that enables you to think, communicate and manage others highly effectively. The Graduate Certificate program enables suitably vetted and appropriately qualified entrants the opportunity to refine their communication skills for personal advancement and commercial benefits.

Used correctly, the discipline helps participants identify excellence and discern the patterns of behaviour and language underpinning the excellence. From this learning and understanding, models are created. Indeed, every NLP pattern in the syllabus has been modelled on someone who has demonstrated excellence in his or her field.

Financing and your investment

We have a number of financing options available for this program including loans and payment plans. If you require financing for the Graduate Certificate in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, either contact us (through the contact us button at the bottom of this page) to discuss financing options, or you can apply for financing online by following the link to the two providers below.



Part 1 – Learn proven models of excellence

Part 1 is a comprehensive, skill-based course in the essential abilities of people who excel at what they do. John Grinder and Richard Bandler (the founders of NLP) identified and modelled these patterns of effective thinking, behaviour and communication. They learned to reproduce these skills in their own behaviour (modelling) and then described them explicitly so others could learn and apply these patterns. These skills form the basis of Part 1 of the course.

This course is a rigorous, experiential training that empowers you to create lasting, sustainable change in your life. This is achieved by teaching you to work with real situations, problems and experiences. Course elements include presentations, demonstrations, guided exercises and practice. Feedback and discussion sessions will help you achieve results through immersion in the NLP experience. Partner and group activities are designed to provide you with memorable learning and evidence of your NLP mastery through contact with other people.

Each student on Part 1 will receive a copy of the NLP Field Guide: Part 1, by Jules and Chris Collingwood and Part 2 students will receive a comprehensive training manual.

Units Part 1 

  • Unit 1: NAT10970001 Experience NLP Fundamentals,
  • Unit 2: NAT10970002 Elicit Information and Generate Solutions,
  • Unit 3: NAT109700003 Apply Interventions for Optimal Self-Management,
  • Unit 4: NAT10970004 Metaphor and Strategies that support Change and Development

Part 2 – Create your own models of excellence

If you can create your own models of human excellence, you have the leverage to learn any skill you choose. This is the emphasis of Part 2. Acquisition of excellence in any endeavour lends itself to creating a model, not a theory. Being able to model equips you with the means to create your own NLP applications instead of depending solely on those developed by other people.

You will learn formal self-modelling by exploring, transforming and developing your self-concept. This element of the Graduate Certificate in NLP is for personal development and working with others.

You have an opportunity to explore experientially, model and then make explicit significant patterns, perceptual filters and values which are present in your maps of self, your self-concept. Participants then have the opportunity to work with each other to transform any limiting patterns.

Each student will receive a copy of the NLP Field Guide: Part 2, by Jules and Chris Collingwood

  • Unit 5: NAT10970005 Apply Advanced Processes to personal and organisational change,

A training format to suit you

The 10970NAT Graduate Certificate is available in two formats: online or blended learning.

Making NLP a life skill

All of Inspiritive’s NLP certification courses are structured around the core competency of NLP modelling. We model what we teach and create contexts for you to discover the patterns in action. You will experience the patterns through exercises, games and tasks.

This has been called the emergent approach to learning NLP. It enables students to communicate spontaneously and naturally, with their own style and vocabulary. We respond flexibly to the patterns we observe in other people’s communication instead of relying on scripted techniques or conscious formats.

Our emphasis is always on replicating the skill or pattern in question, not talking about it or reproducing a scripted format. As a result, you will experience emerging NLP patterning in your daily life, from which appropriate understanding then follows.
