About the Institute

NLP Skills Training Institute originally started in 1991 in Dallas, Texas, founded by Bill Thomason.  Bill moved to Arizona and changed the name in 2005 to NLP Coaching & Skills Training Institute.

NLP Coaching & Skills Training Institute provides individual and business coaching programs, and offers a variety of NLP Skills workshops, and certification programs in NLP, NLP Coaching, Core Decisional Repatterning(c) and NLP Hypnosis.

In addition, the institute provides business culture change, leadership, team alignment, team building, negotiating, selling, and customer service programs to business people based on a weaving of NLP, Breakthrough Technology, and Behavior Modeling technologies.

NLP is Neuro Linguistic Programming

Threads leading to development of NLP include Systems Theory, Cybernetics, Cultural Anthropology, Therapeutic Metaphor, MetaProgram Profiling, Body Language, Presenting/Public Speaking, Listening Theory, Communication Theory, and more.


The intention of the NLP Coaching & Skills Training Institute is to deliver high-performance coaching and training solutions that will transform individuals and the business community in order to, as stated by NLP Pioneers Robert Dilts and Judith DeLozier have proposed,  ‘realize a world to which people want to belong.’

By training people, like you, to become world-class NLP Practitioners, NLP Master Practitioners, and NLP Trainers, we will deliver excellence to the global business and coaching marketplaces.


Our coaches are well-skilled and have the experience to help you achieve more than you ever thought possible.

We do not believe people are broken.

We believe that ‘you have all the resources necessary to achieve any outcome you want in life.’

It is just that people tend to have some of their resources organized in a way that prevents them from getting the goals they set for themselves.

Expect first to be heard and to get the tools to actually change unwanted behaviors quickly, easily, safely, and relatively painlessly.



Businesses consisting of high functioning teams are our specialty.

We are committed to two things;

1. relationship,

2. results.


We ask you, “Why not choose to create a culture where we all love to come to work and at the same time hold each other to account for what we say we want to accomplish.”

That is excellence.

We recognize that an intervention in the way an organization communicates and operates is going to look like a risk to many people in the organization.

Assuming you are still in business in today’s marketplace, you have done some things right.

Our trainer’s know they often have only one chance to make a difference with an individual, in a particular business channel or inside an entire culture.

They have to balance that with a sensitivity to the individual’s concerns that making changes in behavior can be uncomfortable and counter-intuitive to people involved.

After all, changes could make things worse than better.

You can count on our coaches and trainers to stand for the people and for the outcomes you and your team say you want.

We say that ‘communication is critical’ and ‘anything can be worked out in a conversation’ with a ‘commitment to relationship and results.’

That is our stand.
