This three-day programme provides practical help to enable people who wish to become outstanding managers and leaders to understand how Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques can be used to deliver outstanding business results.
By attending this three-day highly interactive course you will:
All managers and leaders who want to acquire a methodical and professional NLP based approach to influencing others and developing personal impact.
A brief introduction to the subject, covering the formation of NLP, key theorists and main developments; including frequently used definitions of NLP.
An overview of levels at which NLP works and how they can be used to position messages and influence people.
A fundamental aspect of NLP is the beliefs and attitudes that underpin the structure of the tools and the manner in which they are used. Here we engage in an exploration of the philosophy that underpins NLP and cover the thinking and fundamental principles underlying the subject.
Understanding why a sense of mutual understanding (or rapport) is so important in the successful application of NLP tools and the ways in which it is achieved.
The ‘well-formed outcomes process’ is the primary NLP goal setting method. It places great stress on developing a positive mental attitude and an emotional commitment towards achieving a goal. Done well, the goals set using this process help to generate the psychological momentum that is necessary to take action and so drive things forward.
Learning how to control our moods (or emotional states) so that we are always positive; even when faced with stressful events or difficult conversations. One application, for example, would be the ability to create feelings of confidence at the start of a presentation.
Appreciating how our choice of words affects the thoughts and emotions of the listener, and understanding how to deliberately select language to have the maximum affect.
Building a history of agreement into a conversation so that the other person gets into the habit of agreeing with you. These techniques help to generate a positive tone to the whole of the meeting, course or interview.
This set of tools is concerned with asking high quality questions that map out precisely a person’s needs, concerns, issues or requirements. This is an essential aspect of solving problems, negotiating agreements and resolving conflict as it means that all interests and desires of both parties are fully understood.
Sub modalities are the fine distinctions that people make in their use of sensory language when they express themselves. By tuning into the fine distinctions in the way people use language we can shape our messages to have a powerful impact on their feelings and perceptions.
This part of the training course involves using tools adapted from hypnotherapy to speak in highly persuasive ways. The language patterns taught in this section are based on the work of the famous American hypno-therapist Milton Erickson MD and they allow the trainer to have a subtle but powerful affect on their course delegates' thought processes and perceptions.
Preparing and delivering a five-minute work-based presentation (e.g. addressing a team about a change initiative; explaining a merger or describing a marketing strategy etc.) using core NLP technique to make the speech as inspirational and motivational as possible.
Feedback is based upon peer reviews using BMC assessment checklists. Completing the BMC assessment checklists is not only valuable to the people involved in a given case study, it also helps those completing them to gain an in-depth understanding of the building blocks that make up an excellent influencer and communicator.
