If you ever get the opportunity to take a training from Rex, do it. He's equally as good as Charles and Gerry, and I believe he's better at installation. He's a great trainer to model. By the way, Charles does training for both Practitioner and Master Practitioner for Rex's programs. To me that means that Charles values Rex's attitude, because I know of some some people that Charles won't train for.
Now let me say why I value Rex's trainings. Rex gives more than just the advertised training. He is dedicated to leading people to be responsible for their own lives. He consistently takes the time to learn where each of the participants is in their growth and offers behavioral change both by demonstrating the desired behavior himself and then suggesting the change explicitly in unobtrusive ways. He'll comment either rhetorically or direct the comment to person A when the actual intent is for person B. Even though I usually recognize when he is doing this for me (I've seen him do this for others and the suggestion seldom seems to come to their conscious awareness), I find that this method takes the heat off the suggestion. I wonder where he learned this because I never recognized any other trainers doing this...have you? I guess he learned it straight from Richard. Maybe it's more common than I thought, maybe I've just become aware of this with Rex.
I have made more positive behavioral changes in my life since I met Rex in Sept. than I have in my entire life. And I've never had anything close to a personal change seminar or session with him. All I've had is 1 wk of DHE training, 1 wk of Trainers Training, and an evening at his `Results' Network meeting. Rex pushes each participant to grow in ways designed specifically for them. You see, I know that if I choose to make the drive up to Milwaukee for a `Results' Network meeting, Rex will throw something out for me to catch. Maybe he'll mark out something with an anchor and later fire that anchor my way and wow, I get instant unconscious learning. Or he'll demonstrate and mark out a new training technique for me to learn, or maybe he'll offer another personal change for me. I really appreciate this special attention, I feel like I have a mentor, and I feel like a kid before Christmas- I wonder what I'll learn next, in what way will I be delighted and amazed? Actually, I think he's so good at it that some of the time his unconscious is doing it. Sometimes I've asked him about certain things he's done and he's denied doing it consciously. I'd say that Richard taught him well.
Jeeze, I hope you don't mind reading all this, I guess I just needed to get all this out of me and onto paper. I think this is helping me sort through all the training behaviors I've seen him model. Rex doesn't explicitly explain everything he's demonstrated behaviorally. There wasn't enough time in the day. But he offers things behaviorally for brighter students to pick up. I'm not trying to suggest that you need any changes for yourself (I don't know you well enough, and your posts seem fine to me). What I'm suggesting is if you're planning future NLP trainings such as DHE or Advanced Master Pract. you ought to check Rex out. Larry is sold on him too.
