About Your Trainer, Robbie Steinhouse

Robbie Steinhouse is the founder of NLP School and our Head of Training. 
He is also a business leader, NLP Master Trainer (one of only very few worldwide), ICF certified professional coach, and published author in the fields of business and personal development.

Robbie started his career over 30 years ago and gradually built up his niche property business to become one of the largest in the sector, at its peak employing over 60 people.
In the late 90's, whilst being on the surface very successful, Robbie found himself undergoing a search for a more fulfilling way of living, he journeyed through many personal development techniques and theories but found that, for him,  NLP was the most effective, in particular Coaching with NLP. 
He immersed himself in the subject and quickly became a Master Trainer, ultimately giving the day to day running of his companies over to a management team whilst focusing himself almost entirely on coaching and training through NLP School.

During his time as Director and later Chairman of his group of companies, he instilled a coaching culture across the directorial and management teams with great success. It is this knowledge of how NLP and coaching can be practically applied both in business and personally, along with his engaging and humorous style that makes him such a sought after trainer.

You can read more about Robbie and see videos and press interviews here.

Watch the video below, recorded at an online training during 2020, to give you an idea of Robbie's style and little bit of what you can expect to learn on an NLP course.

Course Overview

NLP - what is it and how it began, the background vision and ethos and where NLP is now.

Coaching - what it is (and what it isn’t), how it informally began in the 1970’s and has since blossomed into a major business and personal development tool, we cover how to professionalise your practice and how coaching fits with NLP.

Transactional Analysis (TA) - as created by Eric Berne, we cover the basics of this revolutionary tool for understanding human communication and go further into it as the course develops.

Mindfulness - its background and what is it, where and how it might have begun and what are the benefits of mindfulness, we thread mindfulness practice and state management throughout the course.

What is Coaching? Broadly speaking Coaching is about facilitating someone else’s thinking and helping them learn “on the job” so that they can continue to grow and learn afterward. We consider that all of the principles, tools and techniques described below are essential tools for coaches to understand and have at their disposal.
On this course coaching is taught experientially, we will help you set the coaching frame and you will get to practice each technique as both the client and the coach. We believe that this is the best way to learn the techniques and, more importantly, make them stick.

Rapport and influence – The OED defines rapport as “A close and harmonious relationship in which the people or groups concerned understand each other’s feelings or ideas and communicate well”. Relationships are vital to real success in any field and are doubly so for working in a coaching context. Trust and understanding are essential for coaching to be successful. We teach active listening (as oppose to listening waiting to speak) and cover the use of language both verbal and non-verbal and how it can be used to both influence and understand the personalities, motivations and life approaches of individuals within the team.

Core coaching competencies – Good coaching is supported by basic principles and best practice, such as powerful (non-judgemental) questioning, direct communication and meeting ethical guidelines. Coaching is a skill that is increasingly valued within the workplace because it avoids the hazards of authoritarian or micromanagement, and helps individuals flourish in their skills, satisfaction and productivity. You don’t need to be a ‘coach’ to coach, the ideas and methods can be used equally by teachers, parents, friends and managers.

The Meta Model – This is the original model of NLP, containing a distillation of the wisdom and practice of two of the world’s greatest therapists, Fritz Perls and Virginia Satir. It is a way of examining language for signs of false, limiting, negative and hurtful thinking, and of challenging and changing such thinking. Think of it as supercharged Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Goals and outcomes – Part of effective management and coaching (and daily life)! is about planning and goal setting. If a goal is not congruent then the chances of it being reached are lessened.  We teach NLP’s Well-Formed Outcome process which gives a series of principles to maximise the likelihood of a goal’s success and can neutralise the most common mistakes. The process is scalable, from small decisions to major projects, and adaptable so that you can easily do it informally.

The Logical Levels - Values and Motivation  Have you ever had someone on your team who you found difficult to manage? Intelligent questions can unlock a person’s value systempeople are reluctant to act against their values and keen to contribute if their values are met. We give keys to a simple process you can use to unlock people’s enthusiasm. You can apply the ideas easily into a normal conversation or make them part of a formal process. Either way, this works powerfully in goal planning, negotiations and relationship or team building.

Perceptual Positions - A necessary part of management is helping members of your team gain perspective. From NLP, Perceptual Positions is a powerful model you can apply to improve difficult working or other relationships with individuals and in groups. This tool is widely used in conflict resolution and negotiation and is superbly effective, it allows the user to step confidently and assertively into each of three different perspectives rather than simply entrenching into their own position.

Attention training – Every day we will present exercises to develop focussed attention, which you can apply in all kinds of work and life situations. These exercises are also valuable as a means of relieving stress.

Pacing and Leading – Good coaching and communication is necessarily about understanding and harnessing the power of timing. We teach methods to gently guide your client into a state where they are open to learning.

Calibration – This is a tool for developing a deep understanding of others which you can use again and again in more advanced NLP and Coaching practice – and in everyday life.

I can honestly say this programme was completely transformational to my work and to my practice especially in how I now prepare for client work – both my coaching and supervision client work – the course has been a thoroughly wonderful experience from start to finish.

I have just completed NLP Practitioner course with the NLP School and I cannot recommend them enough. The course content and structure was very engaging and despite being online still very interactive. The entire team worked well in providing the best quality material and support ahead and during each session. Thank you NLP School for making this such a pleasurable experience!"🙂"

I decided to undertake a NLP qualification to enhance my skills as a coach & mentor as well as for personal development. I looked at a number of providers but settled on NLP School and am really pleased I did. Robbie Steinhouse is an excellent trainer, very effective at getting the information across and delivers the training in an entertaining but comprehensive way. The administration of the whole course was superb the support team at each session & in between provided excellent follow up & information. If you're interested in NLP then I would recommend NLP School.

Having done a Masters and worked in Education for nearly 15 years, I can reliably tell you that this course was utterly professional and of an extremely high quality. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lot of cheap and substandard coaching/NLP training out there (don't be seduced by Wowcher!), and this couldn't have been further from that. You get genuine and accredited learning with NLP School and I have met some wonderful friends through the course. The online, live zooms and accompanying videos and handbooks were rich in information, useful processes and clear demonstrations. Robbie himself has a great presenting style and is very engaging; he clearly knows his stuff! I did the NLP Practitioner certificate and am about to do my NLP Coaching certificate now. Worth every penny to get this sort of quality! Thank you NLP School!

The training gave me great tools, models and processes to enhance my skill-set in a professional environment. Really well presented by a friendly and engaging trainer.

In my work I can use NLP for coaching, one to ones, personal organisation, chunking up/chunking down, communication styles, building rapport and lots more.
