Real Life NLP

One of the issues with NLP is dealing with Real Life and the day to day issues including those in the public eye. Whilst politics is generally a personal thing, the dynamics and workings of politicians is useful territory to model. When you can watch an interview thats not rehearsed or with patsy questions then theres the feedback that can be used to develop and test your NLP skills.

For instance languaging, sensory acuity, calibration, personal strategies etc. So take Tony Blair being interviewed by Fern Britton today, not Paxman but then again he may be more easily caught offguard with a softer interviewing approach.

Here is an example of man who has shifted his ground and continues to shift to justify his position. He disassociates from the decision he took, “when you” rather than “when I”.

He is haunted by his decisions and seems he is using religion as a comfort and as a means to find some personal succour. He is sustained by his faith but then decides his faith will not help with the day to day decisions. He talks about frailty,humanity,feebleness as means of gaining strength. This presupposes he is searching for strength but is likely to feel weakened by going to war on the sketchiest of justifications.

Catholicism has become his natural home – he goes to access kinaesthetically – to deal with his feelings. An inference maybe that his faith as a structure was the basis of going into the Iraq War rather than reasoned judgement. He now promotes faith through his foundation, something he did whilst he was in power. You can argue misused power. He argues that society should be directed by its spiritual core?

God is also masculine in his model. Just watch Tony as he is questioned about the death of David Kelly -stunned and shocked!


Making Money with NLP

In these difficult times, with recession, depression, slump and credit crunch and if we keep going, we can create such a negative sliding anchor, we could finish in a state of doom. This would not be useful , and in spite of the mass hypnosis provided by the media and politicians. We can create our own useful internal states using NLP.

I was thinking, what will be useful to generate to inoculate against any immanent financial problems. One thing is absolutely clear is that people are behaving generally from a position and state of fear, fear of scarcity, fear of uncertainty and fear of poverty. How would it be if you had nothing to fear, which you have not, unless you follow the crowd.

Just imagine yourself as a person full of abundant ideas and solutions, what does I feel like. Go back and find the time, where you were really creative, able to solve things, get things done. Provide value to your clients and customers. Really associate with that sense of abundance, notice where the feeling starts then where goes to, then loop it round, keep it spinning and keep it looping until it really intensifies. Then once it is strong enough, project it out into your future, project it out strongly, notice how it changes your plans and your sense of the future. Keep it going, stay connected. Start generating ideas.

Putting NLP into the NLP Technique

Take any NLP technique, and you have a sequence of instructions in a set order. For me NLP is much more than this, knowing that fixed technique is not enough, whether it be Change Personal History technique or the Fast phobia Cure technique. It is not about religiously sticking to a fixed protocol, it is more about understanding the client. Knowing the structure of the issue or problem, and then working to solve it calibrating from the feedback from their own responses.

Richard Bandler when training rarely repeats an NLP technique the same way twice. Richard will repeat it many times adding in variation, as well as much more of an intervention with a variety of other tools. So when we understand the NLP tools themselves, we can begin to formulate our own NLP techniques.

Every personal strategy that may be negative in one context can have a positive use in another arena. Take a compulsive shopper and apply the compulsion to say to keeping an office tidy or getting the ironing done. . Or you could just procrastinate. Instead of going out shopping, imagine all the hard work, the traffic, the queues, possibly having to take back a badly fitting pair of shoes. And then only to find you could have bought them £20 cheaper on a different side of town. One aspect of NLP is knowing what is useful for what and creatively applying a strategy to fit the best purpose.

Of course, you can only test whether a strategy is being replaced by applying to a real situation. . So if you still feel attracted to shopping for the shoes, .something else needs to change. . Once again, NLP submodalities is an excellent tool in creating a change. Which key submodality means you go to the shoes rather than staying at home. At one time going shopping is just a pain in the backside, now it seems a whole entertainment industry.

There are those people who run a meta programme, who just can’t have enough things and enjoy the activity of hunting for those things. We haven’t made the evolutionary step from hunting for our food and leaving hunting behind.

So to some extent, NLP is concerned with making a personal evolutionary step, so what kind of change, would you like to make?

Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares Modelled

Having been a fan of Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen nightmares, and recognising that he has a honed talent for transforming restaurants that are struggling.

I thought I would model, the basic process. It is surprising just how close some of it is similar to that used in NLP. If you can get past his confrontational style. He is sharp and has an acuity for all aspects of managing a restaurant and delivering a memorable experience. If at a high level, we see a strategy elicitation as modelling a short behavioural sequence, then this can be applied to groups or large chunks of behaviour.
