Louise's overall performance in every aspect of this Masters has been awarded the highest class of 'Distinction'.
A mini-business blog can be found on this page >> plus a new website devoted to Leadership - and Louise's upcoming book on Servant Leadership - is being developed at www.yourservantleadership.com

International teaching experience and having lived and worked in ten countries - and visited many more - have given her firsthand experience in communicating with a wide variety of cultures and nationalities..

As well as NLP coaching and Hypnosis, you can also find her teaching IT certification courses, web design and English Language courses, developing audio-visual courses using e-learning software, and from time to time, at one or more colleges or in-company, i.e. at the students' place of work. Currently in 2017, she is finishing writing three books: on NLP for effective communication in the workplace, self-confidence in business, sport and leisure, and NLP Anchoring for changing one's state whenever and wherever.

She has now accumulated well over twelve years' experience in international teaching, training, curriculum design, coaching, educational management and educational technology including at the BBC in London, England.

Additionally, for seven years (2001-2008), she was also Senior Online/ eLearning tutor to approx 1500 trainee teachers all over the globe during their distance learning, e-learning course, supporting their studies leading to a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language, plus ESP including Teaching English for Business & for Academic Purposes.
She supervised and gave feedback on new hires during their probabtion period. She also approved learning materials to be used and proof-read new additions to the course and assessment processes.

This experience of teaching and supporting people at a distance using Internet technology, i.e. training people who may be the other side of the world using various software programs, has provided a solid foundation of knowledge and skills for successfully facilitating personal development in individual clients and in thousands of attendees of her webinars/teleseminars all over the world.

Louise is Canadian/British. For those for whom it's important, we include the following information: although born in Canada, she has a clear, Southern English accent, i.e. from the south of England.


Louise has a great many interests: overseas travel, going hiking and running with her husband and German Shepherd, taking photos of wildlife, health and fitness activities like Tae Bo or other high-impact workouts five times a week, photography, cooking, eating the delicious food that her wonderful husband - a former chef and restaurant owner -prepares for her :), learning new things, teaching, course development and learning using fun software like Camtasia and keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in technology, health, the power of the mind; working with people through hypnosis and the science of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) to recognise and utilise the resources they have within them to make positive changes in their thinking, attitude, behaviour, learning ability, their health and thus their lives in general.

Louise J. Goddard was interviewed by the capital's newspaper, The Ottawa Citizen, (circulation approx 850 000), about her relatively-rare method of combining Internet technology with personal development using NLP and Hypnosis. She has assisted literally thousands of people over the last ten years,both in person, face-to-face, and using Skype and telephone.

This almost full page report was featured in newspapers all over Canada - from Quebec to Victoria, BC - including the Montreal Gazette whose circulation at that time was approx 1,094,653. (Since the same article was run in around 20 'papers, we have just put it once below, as featured in The Ottawa Citizen.)

Louise Goddard Myers-Briggs Test Result
(from tests taken regularly over time)


"ENTJs are among the rarest of types, accounting for about 2–5% of those who are formally tested.They tend to be self-driven, motivating, energetic, assertive, confident, and competitive. They generally take a big-picture view and build a long-term strategy.
They typically know what they want and may mobilize others to help them attain their goals.

ENTJs are often sought out as leaders due to an innate ability to direct groups of people."

Structural and functional engineering, though practiced in some degree in the course of organizational operations, tend to be not nearly as well developed and are soon outstripped by the rapidly growing skills in organizing. But it must be said that any kind of strategic exercise tends to bring added strength to engineering as well as organizing skills.

Hardly more than two percent of the total population, Field marshals are bound to lead others, and from an early age they can be observed taking command of groups. In some cases, they simply find themselves in charge of groups, and are mystified as to how this happened. But the reason is that they have a strong natural urge to give structure and direction wherever they are - to harness people in the field and to direct them to achieve distant goals..."
