The Meta-Coaching System
Yes, you guessed it – another fully integrated system that embraces and holds together all of the
previous systems and gives practical application in terms of one of the newest modalities – coaching. As such a well-trained and certified Meta-Coach has within his or her possession all of the distinctions to facilitate performance, developmental, and transformational coaching. He or she needs no other models.
Yet in this field there is the seductive temptation. It is the seduction to opt for more options! “Enough is just not enough, I want more.” For some this drive is driven by a fear, “What if I’m missing out on something?” And so there are Meta-Coaches, there are Neuro-Semantic NLP trainers who, not satisfied with a full-fledged system, are always out there searching for the newest, the latest, the most sensational, the most expensive, the next guru, etc. Sad. And in the field of NLP this is even worse.
It is sad because it means that they will be mediocre as a NLP Trainer, a Neuro-Semantic Trainer, or a Meta-Coach, and a master of nothing. It is sad because they will not be employing the 10,000-hour rule (the 10-year rule) for mastery (Anders Ericksson) and so not persisting and not developing depth and quality in their knowledge or skill level. They will stay mediocre at best and fail to develop any real expertise at worse. Is that what you want? I hope not.
With a fully integrative system like the systems we have in Neuro-Semantic NLP, you really do not need to go elsewhere! One of the genuine pleasures I now have been experiencing is that given I’m in my 25th year with NLP (1986 to 2011), my 15th year with Meta-States (1996-2011), and my 10th
year with Meta-Coaching (2001-2011) I now have the pleasure of seeing and experiencing the systemic interfaces between the models and patterns. And I’m beginning to use the materials systemically in a way that would have been impossible a few years ago.
So my encouragement to you, my challenge to you, my invitation to you –
