Resilience, Wellbeing & Effectiveness
: practical self help psychology with everyday NLP
Our psychology affects everything we do. It governs our mood, influences our relationships, and drives the way we behave and perform. And yet few of us are taught how to make the most of it.
In this programme, Chris Grimsley shares models and techniques drawn from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming, a practical approach to psychology and communication) and other approaches that help us understand how we 'tick'. Developed from over 20 years training and coaching, this is the material that has made many people say "Why has no-one told me this before?!"
The course explains in everyday language how our psychology works, and introduces top tips and simple techniques can be used every day (for yourself or with others) to ....
- reduce negative emotions and increase our sense of resilience
- feel more confident and enhance calmness and wellbeing
- understand people better and have more influence
- be more effective by getting problems in perspective, being clearer about actions
Part 1 looks at how our perception works, and explains how our perception affects our thinking, our thinking affects our feelings, and both affect our behaviour.
Part 2 introduces a practical framework for understanding our 'state', and top tips and techniques to change behaviour, thinking, and feeling to help us deal better with problems and experience things more positively.
Part 3 explores the differences between people, and shares practical ways of building rapport, communicating more clearly, and having more influence so that we can reduce conflict and promote harmony and cooperation.
Part 4 introduces us to some top tips and techniques for working with problems and goals, that when applied can transform our own lives, and the lives of people around us.
The course has around 2.5 hours content in 30+ bite sized lessons. Content includes video sessions with supporting graphics, additional PDF material and video footage from live trainings.
If you're looking for practical ways to feel more resilient, enjoy more wellbeing, and be more effective, (and help others to do the same), this course a great starting point.

"This is an excellent programme. You will be hearing great tips and using some of the practical exercises within minutes of starting the programme. Chris has an engaging style and gets across the fundamentals of NLP in a helpful and practical way. He also makes you feel part of the programme. The use of practical examples and animations helps to reinforce the learning. I work as a coach and Organisational Development Consultant and can see the benefits of using this short programme to complement change programmes within organisations. I can also see the benefit of using it as a foundation for learning in management and leadership training as an introduction to practical psychology, and to encourage individuals to improve their emotional intelligence. Thanks Chris an excellent programme." Phil B.
“If you’re a line manager, HR or a parent you need to see and hear most of this. Not only will it change the way you look at people but it will also help change the way you look at yourself. Thanks Chris for putting this together and giving me the chance to make big changes. I was just blown away with the content”
