Expanding your horizons – sharing a letter from a NLP Practitioner

A recent practitioner of mine was chased by her own high expectations. I wrote about it the other day. Being an in-house trainer with others, she had a perfect comparison. Perfect in the sense that she was new to the environment while her colleagues were kind of seasoned NLP trainers.

She admired them and was not able to reach her own stretch goals – which she measured on the feedback that she received from her trainees.

In our last NLP Certified Practitioner Course, she started to confront her perfectionism. Actually, she started to do so in a very perfect way, and it was a constant challenge to channel her own critical attitude into constructive ways.

Even when I knew that she had achieved her goal, she still was uncertain. It doesn’t matter if I know because, hey, she needs to convince herself.

The day after the training, she had to conduct her own training. She has managed. A very significant improvement from an average rating of 70-75% feedback rating before the course to …. over 90% now. She reached her goals and allowed me to reproduce her email to me here.

“Hi everyone…

How’s life after NLP? Mine is great!! I finished my class last Friday but only today I managed to muster all my confident to look at the participant’s evaluation.

And the result………overall rating for the course is 90.8% and rating for instructor is 92.8%. That means…I met my goal!!! So….so…so happy. Thank you everyone for helping me during the course.

Andreas and Najwa, thank you for all your assistance during LAB and NLP. The amazing part is that on the last day, what people say to me is exactly what visualize and heard during the time line exercise.

It is really cool…..before you asked Andreas…yes I did anchored the feeling. Next will be Houston…..I’ll tell you the outcome once I’m back Cheers!!”

I am happy. Keep it up Shafinah!!
