What Is NLP

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) – Maximising Potential

NLP began life in the US in the 1970s. The co-developers were Richard Bandler, a psychology student, and John Grinder, an associate professor of linguistics. Their original stimulus was the desire to identify ‘the difference that makes the difference’ between therapists such as Milton Erikson, Fritz Perls, and Virginia Satir who had very high success rates with their clients and other practitioners who didn’t. As Bandler and Grinder tested out ideas and insights on their friends, the creative group expanded and developed some key NLP concepts such as anchoring, representational systems, and reframing.

Essentially, NLP is based on:

  • rapport – meeting other people in their model of the world;
  • sensory acuity – noticing the effects of what you do, on yourself and on others;
  • outcome orientation – knowing what you want and checking that you’re using appropriate behaviour to achieve it; and
  • behavioural flexibility – realizing that you always have more than one choice.

Some applications of NLP at Work, Personal Relationships and Goals in Life:

1. Developing Yourself

Find out what makes you function at your best – gathering information about how you reflect your experience through  your senses, what nlp calles representational systems. You can get to grips with them.

Choose your most resourceful emotional state and use anchors, a mental technique to access and hold that good state when you’re feeling challenged.  Take responsibility for your own learning instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you.  When you increase the clarity on what you really want in all aspects of your life,  the well-formed outcomes are fundamental to looking at what you want and can achieve it.

2. Negotiating a Win-Win Solution

Go for the positive outcome – begin with your desired result to mind. Use positive language. Always focus on what you want rather than what you don’t want.

Engage your senses – make our outcome more specific by noticing what it looks like, sounds like, and feels like when you achieve a successful negotiation.

Note down the hot buttons from the point of view of the other – what’s important to them? Imagine what being in their shoes would be like and remind yourself of what they want every time you have contact.

Know your bottom line. Be prepared to walk away with no deal instead of getting carried away in the moment just to complete a deal that’s disappointing to you.

Maintain rapport with everyone in the sale chain. Even when you disagree with the content of what they’re saying match and mirror their body language and tone of voice. Things progress more smoothly when everybody listens!

3. Creating Powerful Presentations

How to make your purpose in presenting crystal clear, shows how to touch everyone in an audience through your use of language & story. It shows you how to feel confident about standing up in front of any group.

Using NLP, your 1st task is to engage your brain to decide on the outcome of your presentation – what result, action do you want to happen, when people have been so inspired by your speech? Map out this outcome clearly for yourself, bearing in mind what the audience would like to discover from you.

How are you going to connect with people, engaging with their senses. As you develop your script remember that some people just need the headlines, and others like the nitty-gritty details.

4. Managing your time and precious resources.

Gainly clarity into how you live your life with the timeline, how we relate to time and spend time wisely.  What we unconscious live our life, wasting time or using all the resources we have at present to the fullest, thereby creating a more purposeful and fulfilling life.

NLP coaching can provide the skills to define and achieve your outcomes or goals and a heightened awareness of your five senses, how you you can better communicate within yourself through your senses, allowing you to remain flexible, on track and maintain rapport with those around you.

NLP addresses things that people are not aware of.  Although people talk to themselves they usually don’t hear themselves or realise the effect of what they say.  So, for example, saying ‘I’m not confident at interviews’ leads to unconscious thoughts, pictures and feelings about interviews; that leads the person to speak and present themselves at interview in a less than helpful way.

NLP is about bringing the unconscious to awareness; having clients notice how they feel as a result of what and how they speak to themselves and how that colours their experience, how they limit themselves and their idea of what is possible.
