Here are Pegasus NLP we are committed to providing very
high quality skills-led training. That is why we are one of the
Founder Members of the
Professional Guild of NLP. Our
NLP certification training programmes conform with Guild
standards, code of practice, and guidelines and
are recognised by the Guild and its member organisations.
NLP is a vast subject. You could spend days learning and exploring the
minutiae of any
one aspect of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
At our trainings you learn through doing and exploring. This
means you get the essentials on applying NLP in the areas of most interest
to you - and you recognise the potential to further explore each
topic as you develop your skill and your experience after the training.
At NLP Core Skills (this is Part 1 of the
our Certified NLP Practitioner programme) in the New Forest you are in a
peaceful learning environment surrounded by woodland so we can guarantee you
get to breathe fresh country air rather than traffic fumes
or hotel air-conditioning.
In breaks and before and after training sessions you can explore, go for
walks in the
60 acres of woodland and lakes, and discover some
of the great variety of flora and fauna. And we are
within the huge New Forest National Park, which is great for longer
walks, runs, or bike rides.
During training sessions you can go outside to practise the skills you are
learning... where you may find your audience will include squirrels, rabbits
or pheasants. (See the
Gallery for some photos.)
We respect your intelligence, your integrity, your
individuality and your experience. At a Pegasus NLP workshop you
will not be talked at nor provided with pre-digested ideas-to-be-absorbed.
Instead you are encouraged
to think for yourself, make your own discoveries and learn through exploring
the subjects as part of a small 'learning team'.
Nor are you treated as a
‘student’… we use an ‘adult learning’ approach in which you learn actively
through facilitated exercises, explorations and discussions. And we value
the wealth of life experiences and skills that
you bring to a training; see our article on ‘none
of us is as smart as all of us’.
What's more nothing is 'sacred'; everything is open to challenge and
discussion. And because of our
small learning teams policy you have lots of time and opportunity to
talk about what you are learning.
At our trainings you
do have to think! You are an
active participant at all times. That's the beauty of learning in a small
group - everyone gets to chip in and agree, disagree, question, challenge,
talk about their own experiences, ask for clarification, etc. And because we
replace the authority-led training with a team-with-facilitator approach
you really do have to think for yourself - which, of course, makes what you
learn much more memorable.
You may even have to determine how you learn some
of the material to best suit your learning style. It is a more challenging
way to learn but is one that enables you to develop real skill in
You are not 'one of the crowd' on our NLP courses. Our small learning teams
policy ensures that you will be part of a learning
team of around 18-20 people rather an audience of anything from 50 to
Small-group learning ensures that you have the time and the space to get to
know people, ask questions and challenge what you are learning, learn from
the experiences of other participants, have plenty of time for practising
what you learn, and have on-going access to and feedback from the course
You have choice in how you learn
We all learned best and fastest when we were very young and were learning
through play and exploration. At our 5-day NLP Core Skills trainings
in the New Forest you have lots of choices
for learning through play, taking part in challenge activities and team
games, going for sense-development walks and exploring the High and Low
Ropes Challenge courses -
see the article on activity-led learning.
It's easy to say 'our trainings are fun' and most training organisations
make this claim. Our version of fun is a bit different - and comes from a
deeper attitude that is difficult to describe succinctly. It is based on:
Ensuring that everyone experiences the learning situation as safe,
win-win, free, non-authoritative, open-minded, and respectful
Cultivating an atmosphere in which there are no 'mistakes' - only
opportunities to learn more - and no 'wrong' answers - only valid
explorations and opinions
The belief that the better we can access the playful side of our nature
the better and more easily we will learn.
So our 'lectures' are really interactive discussions where you can say what
you feel. You do not have to adhere to 'rules' - simply respect others'
needs. We emphasise the positive - without ignoring the negative. And we
perceive every experience as having a valuable learning hidden within it
Our training workshops and courses address all ‘levels’ of your personality.
Instead of simply teaching you a few NLP techniques we provide experiences
that enable you to also learn at the emotional and attitudinal levels. We
use a wide range of accelerated learning approaches and because of our
emphasis on learning-through-discovery you are likely to find you will
learning better. A common report, from people who have attended our
trainings, is that they find themselves using many of the skills and
insights without even having to think about it.
You are learning NLP in a discussion-led and activity-led manner and with
other members of the team you spend a lot of your time being actively
involved in using NLP to explore how you and others think, feel, behave, and
respond - through outdoor challenges, indoor and outdoor games, experiments, and
NLP developed out of a fresh, creative and innovative approach to existing
knowledge. In Pegasus NLP we do the same with NLP and with how it is
normally taught. We continually question our approach to NLP in order to
develop it further, keep it fresh and vital and to ensure that the potential
of NLP is maximised.
NLP grew out of a process called ‘behavioural modelling’. John Grinder and
Richard Bandler wanted to know what accounted for the different results that
different people achieved - both their successful and the unsuccessful
results. So the authentic spirit or attitude of NLP involves curiosity,
desire to learn, fun, adventure and interest in what
makes people, including ourselves, 'tick'. This is why we
emphasise modelling in our trainings. The activities provide you with the
opportunity to model or learn about what accounts for successful or
unsuccessful performance, enjoyable or un-enjoyable experiences, efficient
or inefficient thinking strategies, etc. And you will not just be modelling
others - you will be modelling yourself and, in doing so, constantly
improving your ways thinking, feeling, doing, etc.
There is a huge difference between knowing and doing.
Listening to inspiring and entertaining presenters can increase your
knowledge and your belief in your ability but does little for your skill.
And the enthusiasm rarely lasts more than a week or two (so you have to
return for another dose of enthusiasm later).
At Pegasus we aim to ensure that you leave the training considerably more
skilled than when you arrived. That way you will impress others and they
will want to attend our trainings, too. It's a "win-win" approach that
works! Easy... people who take part in our trainings get noticed for
their high level of NLP skills - and we get lots of referrals. Read
what people say about our workshops.
We do not take short-cuts. We know that learning a range of NLP skills
and developing an NLP attitude and approach takes a little time. We have
consistently followed the "thorough NLP" route providing only
full-length, full-syllabus NLP practitioner certification workshops and
courses. You can do
trainings in a lot less time, though not necessarily for much less
money, but we know our customers can recognise that it's simply not
possible to develop the same amount of skill in a 7- or 10-day
NLP Certification Workshop as in a 20-day workshop.
Confidence vs. competence
Attending a shorter workshop can enable you to feel lots of
confidence in what you have experienced. But you are unlikely to
develop the competence that comes from doing, practising,
interacting and discussing - critical elements in any skills
training. There is simply not enough time in the accelerated courses
to do more than describe many of the
skills - and install hypnotic suggestions
to ensure you feel confident in what you have learned.
We aim to provide the highest quality of NLP training available
anywhere and we use the Kaizen
principle of continuous small improvements to ensure that you
receive the best possible training experience. Our team of Certified
NLP Trainers bring to the training workshops a richness and depth of
knowledge that comes from having trained in full-length,
full-syllabus NLP certification programmes, from years of
practical experience of using NLP in many fields, and
from the experience of working as a dedicated Pegasus training team
presenting you with a cohesive and integrated training programme.
In a letter George Bernard Shaw once apologised for the length of the letter
saying that he did
not have time to write a short letter... “It takes more time and
effort to design, structure and condense complex ideas into a letter - or a
training. We aim to make your experience of NLP effortless but stretching by
carefully designing and sequencing the concepts you encounter in our
trainings while ensuring that they are simple to grasp and fun to learn. “
We provide you with excellent value for your money by maintaining very
competitive training fees while keeping attendances very small. We limit
numbers to ensure you have access to, and receive individual attention and
guidance from, our Certified NLP Trainers. In addition, on both NLP
Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner programmes you will be applying
your new skills and insights to your own personal and professional
development through designing and implementing a project of your choosing,
so you will see the immediate results of your investment.
There's a story about a woman who had, on successive evenings, dined with
the famous adversarial politicians Disraeli and Gladstone. Asked about her
impressions of dining with these two great men she replied "When I left the
dining room after sitting next to Mr Gladstone I thought he was the
cleverest man in England. But after sitting next to Mr Disraeli I thought
that I was the cleverest woman."
We want you to leave a Pegasus NLP training very impressed ...
with yourself, your abilities and your own potential...
