ILM Professional Coaching & Mentoring

Coaching has been a buzzword for some time – both inside and outside the military – and within management and training circles is now proven to have benefits related to improved performance, enhanced learning and the development of positive attitudes. Others have recognised coaching as a distinct communication style in its own right and positioned it firmly within a leadership framework, whilst creating & sustaining a coaching culture is seen by many as central to becoming a Learning Organisation. Within the British military, coaching has been embraced for all of these reasons, with all three Services now investing in specialist coach training to support trainer development, guide training transformation, and help Defence develop itself as a learning organisation.

Performance People are an approved Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) centre and offer a range of professional qualification programmes in coaching & mentoring specifically designed to meet the needs of both serving & resettling Service people

NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) has been variously described as the “new technology of achievement” and the “science of artful communication”. As a common-sense system of everyday psychology it has enhanced millions of lives by showing people how to monitor and adapt their thinking, cultivate more useful inner beliefs, and develop the skills and strategies to achieve their desired and specific outcomes. In this way, its many benefits have been recognised in the contexts of management, training and sales, whilst certificated training in NLP offer a powerful qualification framework for both personal & professional development. Within Defence, NLP has been acknowledged as offering a complimentary approach for both trainer & leadership development and is now integrated into a number of military training programmes.

Performance People are an accredited NLP training provider with the Association of Neuro Linguistic Programming (ANLP), the American Board of Neuro Linguistic Programming (ABNLP), and the International Neuro Linguistic Programming Trainers Association (INLPTA), and offer a range of NLP certification programmes specifically designed to meet the needs of both serving & resettling Service people,
