Diploma of Applied NLP: Leadership
Our focus is on quality, not quantity. You will learn some of the most dynamic skills that NLP has to offer, in more depth, for career success and quality of life.
In today’s troubled times, businesses, charities, communities and indeed the world need transformational leaders – people who inspire us to be the very best versions of ourselves possible.
This course goes beyond simple leadership theory. It elegantly knits knowledge and practical skills together with all the benefits of Applied NLP to help you BECOME an inspirational and transformational leader, capable of influencing at the highest levels.
The JSNLP Diploma of Applied NLP: Leadership course teaches you to embody the traits of successful leaders and to ‘be the change’ in your organisation or community – recognising that by changing yourself you can influence how others ‘show up’ around you. The programme further distils a set of skills, attitudes and behaviours that enable you to influence with integrity and charisma; aligning individuals or a team behind a shared mission or vision.
You will learn powerful communication and negotiation skills, and unpack the mysteries of motivation to maximise the chance of you achieving your goals successfully and inspiring others to do the same.
The course explores how a coaching-based leadership approach can help you develop skills to support people in your team or circle of influence to move beyond any barriers that may have held them back from achieving at the highest levels.
In business, good leadership promotes a happier, more confident, responsible, and courageous workforce. In communities great leadership has the power to change the world.
Here are some key objectives we’ll be covering during the course:
- Gain management skills to empower others to problem-solve and find solutions to their own challenges.
- Explore how change happens at personal, organisational and community levels.
- Embrace tasks you dislike; from cold-calling to presentations, and learn to inspire others to do the same.
- Learn how to build win-win relationships and negotiate with impact and integrity.
- Discover how to motivate and support, even challenging, people, and create goals your team or group can get behind.
- Learn the tricks used by motivational speakers to positively impact the emotional state of an audience and manage energy.
- Understand how stress impacts every level of our neurology and physiology and gain powerful techniques that diffuse it.
NLP leadership techniques are very practical, proven, and feel quite natural in their execution. This is because NLP has been modelled from successful human experience, and the “difference that makes the difference”, captured and distilled so that it can be easily replicated.
NLP utilises what we do naturally and teaches how to harness these skills so that they can be used consciously to help us achieve our desired outcomes.

What is Applied NLP?
NLP is a set of skills for communicating more effectively with yourself or others. However, it is far more than ‘just a set of techniques’. At heart, it is both a set of models, and a set of communication skills in the domain of subjective experience and consciousness. The skills focus on both the intrapersonal (within a person) and the interpersonal (between people). Taken together these models and skills constitute a new and innovative discipline that has grown vigorously and produced significant results in many different fields. NLP can be summarised as a powerful set of applied psychological skills for change, for learning and for accelerating personal and professional development.
Over the past 30 years John Seymour has led the British NLP Training field. His gift for making the complexities of NLP profoundly simple, and the practical applications life-changing, have made him one of the most popular NLP trainers in the UK. JSNLP courses have a well-deserved reputation for being highly ethical, effective and full of humour.
Our focus has always been on helping our graduates to develop sublime NLP skills together with a pragmatic approach that helps them put these skills into practice.
Our trainings have traditionally run in Bristol and London over 18 or 20 days, and whilst we still maintain this approach as the A-Grade in NLP education through our NLP Advanced Practitioner programme, we recognise that the world is changing and that old models need to be tweaked to ensure they work in the modern world.
So, used to being at the forefront in NLP thinking, we’ve innovated and found a new way of delivering our courses in Bristol that we believe maintains our high training standards whilst making them more flexible, practical and manageable.
To achieve these changes John has partnered with one of his former apprentices Neil Almond. Neil, now an ANLP certified NLP Master Trainer in his own right has worked with John for years, as well as running Whatever Life Throws (a popular London-based NLP training organisation). He also has an impressive CV; having delivered projects for many of the UK’s top organisations, facilitated sessions in Downing Street and worked with industry leaders such as Sir Richard Branson.
We believe that this new approach will combine the best of John’s wisdom and experience with Neil’s fresh, innovative, applied approach.
Applied NLP brings all of the great skills from traditional NLP trainings, but by studying them through a specific filter – such as coaching, leadership, social enterprise, autism etc – it tends to make them easier to learn and apply to practice. This new approach helps to build confidence and congruence in less time and ensures that learnt skills are actually applied to practice and used beyond the training room.
