Notes from NLP Practice Group 1 February 2014

Notes from NLP Practice Group with 15 Attendees

Topics Covered:

  1. New Behaviour Generator. Using Eye Patterns and related questions to help the client gain insights about how to make changes.
  2. Neuro-Logical Levels, in the context of becoming an even better, more aligned and more congruent leader. Some delegates chose to use other contexts, such as ‘manager’ and ‘coach’ rather than ‘leader.
  3. Time Lines: For setting goals, creating future success, taking resources from the past and ‘beaming’ them to the present (an alternative to a ‘Resource Anchor’).
  4. Pre-intervention questions: The 5 questions to ask that will make your NLP interventions easier, more ecological and almost guarantee successful interventions.
  5. At the end, there was a 10-15 minute coaching session using the GROW model as a structure.

 Key learnings and insights:

  1. This can be really useful for clients who ‘aren’t very good at visualising’, partly because there is an element of ‘Overlapping Representational Systems’ here. In addition to the Auditory Digital, Visual Construct and Kinaesthetic sequence, an element of Auditory (probably Auditory Construct) can be introduced to suit the client’s preferences.
  2. As well as the standard ‘walking up and walking down the levels’, which are organised in a straight line, the 6 Neuro-Logical Levels (including Mission/ Purpose/ Beyond Identity) can be arranged in a circle. Master Practitioner Nick Taylor asked his client to go into the middle of the circle having visited all 6 levels, which the client found to be extremely powerful and useful.
  3. The different uses of Time Lines for future success (as opposed to clearing past-based ‘baggage’) outlined above were used by different attendees. Those who used the ‘beaming resources’ process found it extremely powerful.
  4. The ‘pre-intervention questions’ is a topic we teach on our courses. It was useful revision for those who have studied with me, and an eye-opener for those who had not.
  5. Those who did the coaching were delighted (and in some cases, astounded) at how much they could achieve in a very brief coaching session.

What our students and clients say

Ivona Gordon

Jeremy has a unique approach to bringing out the best in people. He certainly practices what he preaches!  Jeremy is one of a handful of trainers/coaches/practitioners that I would, without any hesitation, recommend to others.  He is knowledgeable, ethical and shows genuine passion for the work he does and how best to serve others.

Mel Larsen

Before doing the NLP course, I had felt I needed more coaching approaches and methodologies. The course gave me a lot of new techniques which I have used to help my coaching clients. Also I was launching my new coaching brand as I was doing the programme and looking back I can see it helped me to set big targets and reach them.

Donna de Villiers

I have had the pleasure of studying with Jeremy, and the NLP he has taught has had a wonderful impact on my personal and professional life.  Jeremy explains NLP in an accessible, easy, manner and for me took away the fluff of the subject.  The practical help on the courses and the smaller classes give you a personal learning environment, perfect for this subject.  I highly recommend Jeremy for anyone interested in NLP.

Simon Fanning

I found the course to be enlightening both personally and professionally.  Jeremy’s experience of the corporate world allowed for a real life perspective to be taken and a focused view into NLP and its application in Business and coaching.

Dave Cordle

I’ve undertaken three major trainings with Jeremy: NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and most recently NLP Sports Practitioner. I keep coming back because the training is thorough, ethical and ecological, and it’s academically recognized. As a career coach I work with people at all stages of their career, across levels and across a wide range of industries.

Dara Caryotis

I feel privileged to have discovered NLP, it has changed my life. Understanding communication, the impact of language and being able to change unwanted behaviours has been the difference that made the difference for me.  Jeremy is so much more than an NLP Master Trainer.  It is a powerful rewarding experience learning and evolving with Jeremy. I highly recommend studying with Jeremy, one of my best decisions.
