Our Collaborative Intelligence Tools: Modeling Excellence
The skills and models you learn with us are based on current neuroscience; our trainers and associates have solid experience in science, as well as tested skills in advanced communications.
1) Our trainings are like a dojo.Learning how to read body-language and signals requires a safe place to test your new skills. Are you reading them correctly? You don't become a mentalist by reading a book or watching TV. As Kristin learned when she studied with Paul Ekman, facial recognition techniques take practice.
Insight feels magical and instantaneous -- but developing reliable new reflexes and responses takes time and practice. Some of the world's best mind/body integration techniques come from martial arts training systems. Our approach links perception, intention, practice and new behaviors. Effective PQ + EQ + IQ trainings develop great reflexes to respond well to unexpected challenges.
Our methods are similar to a ‘dojo’ in the Japanese sense. "Do" means the way. "Jo" means a place. Our Dojo is a place where you practice new ways to perceive the world and manage your responses differently. You gain energy through playing/training with others. An ongoing group gives you feedback that contributes to faster learning. Trying to gain these techniques in isolation slows you down. Your practice partners bring valuable insights and offer new opportunities.
Our teachers have trained in physical and mental disciplines, in Eastern as well as Western methods of mind/body integrations that respect continuity of practice. Aikido, yoga, meditation, body and breath work take time to learn and integrate, as does Feldenkrais, body language reading and facial recognition. The real techniques they use in the TV program "Lie to me" require refined practice and real time feedback.
The Chinese word gongfu (kungfu) translates as "skill that comes through constant application or work". We want you to have good gongfu for the mind!
2) A playground for learning - just like "real" life
Human beings, like other mammals, learn best through play -- curiosity, enthusiasm, absorption and eagerness. So we use play -- improv comedy, games, and scenarios -- to explore new skills and speed up learning.
3) We like science
Early NLP was empirical and experimental, seeking practical techniques from widely divergent sources. Early developers collected (and created) a basket of tools that worked. There was, however, not much focus on formal theory. Since then, we've learned a vast amount about how the brain behaves.
4) The emphasis is on values and ethics
People who work together and thrive incorporate certain key values. In our cross-cultural trainings, we invite you to default to curiosity and wonder at the amazing diversity of skills and perspectives that each individual brings with them. We emphasize that the values of respect and compassion are as important as learning a new communications technique.
NLP-Modeling Practitioner training: THE PARIS SUMMER INSTITUTEOur NLP-Modeling Practitioner training provides the foundation for applying NLP in daily life. We encourage our graduates to integrate the essential principles and apply them first in their own lives. When you complete this level of training you will understand your own values and beliefs, your preferred learning system, and how you organize your perceptions to get results. You will communicate more effectively with the important people in your life.
In the Practitioner certification we focus on the skills to:
While it is up to you to decide exactly where and how you will apply your new skills, some results that previous students have enjoyed include:
Masters Program: MODELING EXCELLENCE
The Masters Program "Modeling Excellence" is an opportunity to apply the skills you've developed in a professional manner. In our Practitioner Certification, the focus is on your own patterns of communication. In the Masters, you learn how to apply these understandings with others. You refine your skills in observation, pattern recognition, and modeling.

|IQ: How do you set goals that energize your life? (Full day program)|
Which goals do you really want? Which goals truly motivate you? Who decided they were important? Today, thanks to current brain science, we have new information about goal setting. Find out why you procrastinate about certain goals!
We teach these new tools and methods at business schools, corporations, and foundations. And we share them in our regular community programs.
