Daily Star, London
13th October 2008
COUNCIL chiefs have been slammed for blowing £400,000 on Paul McKenna-style staff training.
Bosses are forking out taxpayers’ cash to send 400 workers on the course, which uses techniques favoured by the telly hypnotist.
The lessons, run over five months, include a controversial training method called neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).
They are supposed to “mentally prepare” staff for the stress of work by helping them “adopt a successful mindset.” But critics say that the spending “beggars belief”.
And they have blasted Suffolk County Council, which is paying for the courses, for wasting money.
Deputy Lib Dem opposition group leader Andrew Cann stormed: “The council has clearly lost its way recently on delivering the basics at a cost people wish to pay.
At a time when we are all feeling the pinch, the council should be working harder and harder to identify savings and stop wasting money on schemes designed to make it look better.
“It’s about time they just concentrated on getting on with the job.”
NLP is a corporate training technique and has been championed by McKenna, 44.
He shot to fame in the mid-90s with TV series which featured him hypnotising audience members.
Sally Marlow, Suffolk’s head of human resources, defended the training. She said: “The programme is aimed at all levels of staff.
“It is vitally important that we invest in our people so they are well equipped to meet the challenges of the future.”

Maybe they do not mean 'waste' in teaching NLP, but, rather in trying to teach government workers.

hehe I crack me up.

Well that was one reaction- *wink*

NLP has a good platform record for business use- and if 400 more people are able to communicate- better with the general public- then thats a training worth having- keep in mind that NLP is a communicational model- and a meta- discipline.

Hello Matrixman, Yes, it is a tabloid newspaper but the story was accurately reported. I only posted it as information and to provoke some reactions. I have presented NLP experts at the ACHE conference several times.

The daily star is not really the best paper to be quoting from- as it's a paper designed to create sensationalized stories-

So it could be that the story as been blown out of proportion.

$1,700 per person? Seems a little high. But, maybe they're not fully describing what they're being taught, and, they do not discuss how the training will be put to use.
