Neuro Linguistic Programming and Executive Coaching

There are a ton of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and NLP coaching trainings, but there aren't many of quality in the Bay Area outside of Robert Dilts' NLP University. You can read alot of excellent reviews of NLP and coaching trainings at the General NLP and Business Coaching Information Site. For a more hypnosis oriented perspective, check out the MindChandingHypnosis blog. For those of us interested in a healthy weight, this is a blog you might want to check out. And for those interested in an introduction to NLP, check this out.

For bits of NLP applied to business coaching and consulting, check out Business Explained by Stever Robbins, or for a more entertaining view, Stever's Business Rants by Stever Robbins. There are also lots of resources available on how to get motivated.
