“I have had the fun and great fortune of studying with some of the top NLP™ trainers on the planet and many seeds of knowledge were planted at their seminars.

Barbara Stepp, a member of that elite group of super trainers, has, with her Master Leader group, not only continued to plant those seeds but also provide the nourishment to cause those seeds to grow and flourish. Barb is a gifted master and trainer of the craft of helping people with NLP™, as well as with genius Dave Dobson’s unique, effective, and wonderful skills.

Since attending Barb’s Master Leader™ calls I have noticed myself able to much more effectively help others help themselves and for that I give Barb heartfelt and infinite thanks and give the Master Leader calls my highest recommendation for anyone wishing to become more effective at helping self and others with these wonderful and miraculous tools!”

“I first met Barb in 1991 at Tony Robbins’ final Certification program in Hawaii. We connected as fellow Chicago residents and lovers of the mind, body, and spirit connection. As a Master Trainer for both Tony Robbins and Richard Bandler, Barb was my first choice for an NLP™ trainer. I obtained my Practitioner and Master Practitioner from Barb in ’95 and ’96 respectively. Barb Stepp has the gift of taking something complicated and explaining the process in ways that you can understand, but most importantly are FUN. I am excited to learn about Barb’s latest “Easy Button” program: Master Leader. I say this because I’m able to listen to a monthly conference call, ask questions and brush up on my NLP skills. I only need to attend 20 out of the next 24 “live” calls to renew my Hypnosis and NLP Master Practitioner License. ~ Shazam!  Thanks Barb…”

“Barb is a natural teacher and trainer. She imparts knowledge with passion for the subject and with compassion for the learner. When Barb teaches, it is a “must understand” for the learner. The course content was very rich and in depth. The course was no only rich in content but very much practical and interactive. There were so many practical solutions that I can apply to everyday personal situations.”

“You have an incredible ability to impart knowledge in a way that is refreshing and easy to absorb. I admit my head is still spinning from everything we learned, but I know I have the information because I have already seen changes in myself that can surely be attributed to insights I gained from our class. Because you teach with grace, compassion, and a genuine desire for your students to learn and understand, it is easy to take in information you have I admire your thirst for knowledge and ability to inspire curiosity in your students.”

“I would like to enthusiastically endorse the NLP™ Practitioner training, sponsored by Anita (Live With Power) and taught by Barbara Stepp. I had attended a practitioner training done by another trainer and can boldly say, there was no comparison. Barbara’s teaching methods are absolutely fantastic. I watched in amazement as Barbara skillful and thoughtfully made her seminar special and unique for each person in attendance. Having students understanding the skills of NLP were top priority to her.” Charmaine Humphrey
