A 10 day training in powerful skills for people developing and personal empowerment
with James Tripp


Beginning September 2012 at the Tripp Developmental Centre and Creative Suite, Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire UK

Are you interested in living life more skilfully (communicating and responding more effectively) and with greater awareness for what’s really going on with the people around you and with yourself?
Are you interested in becoming a creative or generative force in your own life and in the lives of others?


My name is James Tripp – welcome to the information page for the forthcoming Neuro-linguistic Influencer training. This training is an opportunity for 9 people to be personally coached in developing some of the most profound skills, attitudes and understandings for personal influence and empowerment that I personally know of.  And I am especially excited about sharing this material and teaching these skills, because I know how transformative it and they have been in my both own life and in the lives of my changework and mentoring clients.

In attending this training you will be stepping across the threshold into the world of the Neurolinguist… Broadly, you will be learning:
  • How people semantically organise and shape their realities (and how that limits or liberates them)
  • What drives people  – their behaviours, responses and choices
  • How to communicate effectively and influentially with both yourself and other people
  • How to uncover and tap into your passion, drive and creativity
  • How to coach and effectively facilitate change and growth in others

Essentially you will be becoming a Neuro-Linguistic Influencer – a unique individual with a specialised set of skills and understandings empowering you to become profoundly influential in both your own life and the lives and in the lives of those around them.

These are serious skills, and serious understandings!
With Neuro-Linguistic influence you will be learning to become a significantly more powerful communicator and significantly more empowered in understanding yourself and others in terms of influencing behaviour and responses.

Interlude – The Loops the Run Your Life


Just to be Clear – Neuro-Linguistic Influencer is an NLP training, right?

Well, yes… and no!

Whilst the influence of NLP on Neuro-Linguistic Influencer is unmistakable (just look at the name!)…

…this training is most certainly NOT about plain old ‘vanilla’ NLP.

Yes, the influence is here and here strongly, but so is the influence of various schools of…

  • Classical and Non-clasical ‘Hypnosis’
  • Eastern and Western philosophy
  • Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling,
  • Spiral Dynamics,
  • Robert Kegan’s developmental approaches
  • Keith Johnstone’s ‘Impro’
  • Eugene Gendlin’s Focusing
  • Albert Ellis’ REBT
  • Robert Fritz’s work on creativity
  • Various schools of sales and marketing
  • Teaching and coaching skillsets
  • Social dynamics
  • Meditation
  • Classic Rhetoric
  • Cognitive linguistics
  • Professional Storytelling
  • Mentalism and conjuringand much more.

Essentially, Neuro-Linguistic Influencer is about pragmatic skills and understandings for enhancing your ability to effectively influence your self and the world around you.  And, as a result, have more the kind of life you want and less the one you don’t.

There is no special reverence for any particular school, approach or idea…

Everything you will learn has been deconstructed, reconstructed, examined, road-tested and pressure tested to ensure that it works out there in the ‘real world’.

However, with all of that said, the chassis IS distinctly NLP… but NLP with many subtle adjustments and nuances arising from application and experience (because I refuse to teach anything that has not been made to work in the real world, which sometimes takes some ‘jigging’).

What I mean by this is that as a ‘student of human nature and dynamics’, I have never wanted to restrict myself in any way and have studied, explored and experimented extensively outside the field of NLP, looking at complimentary and contrasting perspectives on communication, personal growth, excellence and influence.

And I have personally ‘field tested’ all the core NLP material and explored where and why it works as well as what is happening when it doesn’t!

(Make no mistake, NLP is fantastic, but it isn’t ‘fairy magic’ – one of the things I want you to get if you get on this training is the skillet, mindset and knowledge base to trouble shoot when things are not working out and the adaptability to find your way round the roadblocks).

So, I have a particular perspective on NLP borne out of my experience of using it., and it is this perspective that you will be learning:

NLP jigged and hacked and blended with complimentary perspectives to make it work as effectively and pragmatically as I have personally found possible.

I will be teaching you nothing that I have not been able to make work, and can show YOU how to make work! Yes, I will juxtapose this with the ‘party line’, but what I really want you to have is exactly what works and only what I can verify works.

An Example

To give an example, the difference in Neuro-Linguistic Influencer to ‘NLP’ starts from the ground up:

This training is about INFLUENCING and CREATING, not ‘programming’

If you haven’t got deep into understanding influence and human dynamics yet, you may not yet get this as an important distinction – but it is huge!

People are not computers, and if you make the mistake of thinking of them as them as such and treating them as such you will overlook key elements of how they work and how they can be most effectively influenced You will disempower yourself to influence most effectively, and you disempower them to be the best that they can be. Because, the truth is…

People are not computers and cannot be ‘programmed’!

But when you recognise this – when you see people as developmental organisms and self-organising ‘organic’ systems – a whole world of possibility opens up! You can start to get truly smart as to how and where you can influence them (others and your ‘self’) – how you can understand them, engage them and nudge them in useful directions.

So this is a fundamental shift in the tacit paradigm straight of the bat which, in my experience, changes and empowers every thing – because you come alive to recognising human beings as dynamic systems of rich complexity, and as such are…

…empowered to apply the tools of understanding influence with far greater awareness and flexibility.

Beyond this initial shift there are many subtleties that build on this to make the toolset more powerful and applicable – like:

  • Understanding human feedback systems
  • Appreciating the developmental nature of Human Beings and how this relates to behavioural and belief change
  • Understanding how to effectively frame for change

and much more.

All in all, Neuro-Linguistic Influencer has a richer perspective than classic NLP on how people structure and organise their realities and how this impacts mindset, motivation and behaviour.

OK, So you should have a general flavour – but to introduce a bit more detail here, by attending Neuro-linguistic Influencer you will be exploring and developing:

  • The foundational presuppositions – multiple perspectives.
  • Understanding perception, representation, meaning and communication
  • Time, change and direction
  • Attitude and basic frames – feedback, outcome, curiosity, how over why, possibility, ‘as if’, agreement, contrast, backtrack, ecology.
  • Super-well-formed outcomes (Additional key distinctions included)
  • Building effective learning and change structures
  • Principles of Focusing and ‘Felt Sense’
  • Mind and Consciousness
  • Developmental Perspectives (Evolution of Self)
  • Understanding Drive and Drivers
  • Reactivity Vs. Creativity
  • Facilitating high quality feedback loops.
  • Establishing and maintenance rapport
  • Non-verbal Process Control
  • Pacing and leading (verbal and non-verbal)
  • Representational systems – sensory predicates and eye-accessing
  • State elicitation, installation and amplification
  • Sensory acuity and calibration
  • Overlapping and Translating Representational Systems
  • Accessing and building resource states
  • Understanding and utilising anchors
  • NLP Milton Model
  • NLP Meta Model
  • Clean Modelling and Facilitation
  • Understanding an utilising submodalities
  • Omni-directional chunking
  • Frames and reframing
  • Understanding, generating and utilising metaphors
  • Understanding and utilising Strategies
  • Basic Meta-Programmes
  • Classic Formal NLP Patterns (e.g. Collapsing Anchors, Swish etc). broken down and built back up for complete understanding (Not just learning the patterns, but learning FROM the patterns)

The ‘Logistics’

This is an accelerated practitioner combining pre-learning modules with 10 days of live exploration, learning and assessment.

Pre-learning: Prior to commencement you will receive a a series of audio learning modules in mp3 format. These modules are exclusive to those who sign up for this training and it is requested that you DO NOT share them.

Live Training: This is 10 days of powerful multi-level experiential learning (using Neuro-linguistics to teach Neuro-linguistics) divided across 5 weekends. Assessment will be ongoing throughout the training and supported by personal coaching.

The dates for Neuro-Linguistic Influence 2012 live segments are:

> September 29/30

Venue: The venue is the Tripp Developmental Centre and Creative Suite, in Letchworth Garden City. (This is ‘Tripp Central’ if you like – the place I coach from, host mentoring and development groups, and create videos and learning and development resources.)

Group Size: The training will be in a small group (capped at 9 people only) to ensure lots of personal attention and coaching.

Please Note: There are currently only 5 places remaining on this course!


Personally, I don’t think certification really means much, because the actual skills and understandings that you get are easily the most important thing. I am aware, however, that some people want formal certification, and that does offer the advantage of being able to get insurance as an NLP consultant or coach. So, certification will either be via SNLP or ANLP.
