  1. 1. NLP Workbook Feb 2007
  2. 2. The Presuppositions of NLP <ul><li>People respond to their experience, not to reality itself </li></ul><ul><li>Having a choice is better than not having a choice. </li></ul><ul><li>People make the best choice they can at the time. </li></ul><ul><li>People work perfectly. We are all executing our strategites perfectly. </li></ul><ul><li>All actions have a purpose. </li></ul><ul><li>Every behaviour has a positive intention. </li></ul><ul><li>The unconscious mind balances the conscious, it is not malicious. </li></ul><ul><li>Mind and body form a system. They are different expressions of the one person. </li></ul><ul><li>If you want to understand, act. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Neurological Levels Robert Dilts <ul><li>Environment: The where and when </li></ul><ul><li>Behaviour: The what </li></ul><ul><li>Capability: The how </li></ul><ul><li>Beliefs and values: The why </li></ul><ul><li>Identity: The who </li></ul><ul><li>Beyond identity: Connection </li></ul>
  4. 4. Language of Neurological Levels Robert Dilts <ul><li>Environment: I can‘t do that here . </li></ul><ul><li>Behaviour: I can‘t do that here. </li></ul><ul><li>Capability: I can‘t do that here. </li></ul><ul><li>Beliefs and values: I can‘t do that here. </li></ul><ul><li>Identity: I can‘t do that here. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Unconscious and conscious <ul><li>All change takes place first at the uncoscious level. Then we become aware of it. </li></ul><ul><li>Conscious in NLP refers to anything that is in the present moment in awareness. </li></ul><ul><li>The unconscious is a container for thoughts, feelings, emotins that we are not paying attention to at a given time. When you switch your attention, they will become conscious. </li></ul><ul><li>Some beliefs and values remain unconscious but guide life without you ever realizing how powerful they are. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Perceptual Positions <ul><li>First position is your own reality, your own views of any situation. Mastery comes from strong first position. </li></ul><ul><li>Emotional Second position is understanding the other person‘s emotions. </li></ul><ul><li>Intellectual Second Position is the ability to understand how another person thinks. </li></ul><ul><li>Third position is a step outside to detached perspective. This is important to check the ecology of the outcomes. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Beliefs <ul><li>Beliefs are principles of how the world seems to work, based on our experience. </li></ul><ul><li>Beliefs actively shape our social world. Beliefs are not fixed and as immutable as gravity. </li></ul><ul><li>Beliefs act as self-fulfilling prophecies. </li></ul><ul><li>Beliefs have to be acted on if they are to mean anything, therefore beliefs are principles of action, not empty ideals. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Beliefs and outcomes <ul><li>You need to believe three things about your outcomes: </li></ul><ul><li>It is possible to achieve them. </li></ul><ul><li>You are able to achieve them. </li></ul><ul><li>You deserve to achieve them. </li></ul>
  9. 9. HUGGS Huge, great goals <ul><li>They are long term (5-30 years). </li></ul><ul><li>They are clear, compelling and easy to grasp. </li></ul><ul><li>They connect with identity and core values. </li></ul><ul><li>You feel strongly about them. They engage your emotions. </li></ul><ul><li>When you first see them they seem impossible. </li></ul>
  10. 10. HUGGS Huge, great goals <ul><li>HUGGs often involve removing elements from your life. Sometimes the biggest leverage comes not from doing things to achieve them, but from stopping doing things that are in your way. </li></ul><ul><li>Enjoy the achievement and enjoy the journey. </li></ul>
  11. 11. NLP basic change Questions for it <ul><li>What am I moving towards? (The desired state or outcome) </li></ul><ul><li>Why am I moving? (The values that guide you) </li></ul><ul><li>How will I get there? (The strategy for the journey) </li></ul><ul><li>What if something goes wrong? (Risk management and contingency planning) </li></ul>
  12. 12. ECOLOGY CHECK Internal and external <ul><li>An internal ecology check is when you check with your own feelings that a course of action would be a wise one to follow. </li></ul><ul><li>An external ecology check is when you check how the change affects the wider system of relationships. </li></ul>
  13. 13. INTERNAL ECOLOGY CHECK Questions for it <ul><li>What are the wider consequences of my action </li></ul><ul><li>What will I lose if I make this change </li></ul><ul><li>What extra will I have to do </li></ul><ul><li>Is it worth it </li></ul><ul><li>What will I gain if I make this change </li></ul><ul><li>What is the price of making this change and am I willing to pay it </li></ul><ul><li>What are the good aspects of the present state </li></ul><ul><li>How can I keep those good aspects while making the change I want </li></ul>
  14. 14. EXTERNAL ECOLOGY CHECK Questions for it <ul><li>How will your change affect other people </li></ul><ul><li>Does it go against any of their values </li></ul><ul><li>Does this matter to them </li></ul><ul><li>How will they react </li></ul>
  15. 15. How to structure outcomes Questions for it <ul><li>POSITIVE: What do I want </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Outcomes are expressed in positive, meaning „directed towards something you want“ rather than „away from something you wish to avoid“. Losing weight and giving up smoking are negative outcomes, which may partly explain why they are hard to achieve. To turn negative into positive ask „what will this do for me“. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>EVIDENDE: How do you know you are succeeding/have succeeded? </li></ul><ul><li>SPECIFICS: Where, when and with whom? </li></ul>
  16. 16. How to structure outcomes Questions for it <ul><li>RESOURCES </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Objects </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Role models </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Personal qualities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Money </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CONTROL: Can you start and maintain this outcome </li></ul><ul><li>ECOLOGY: What are the wider consequences </li></ul><ul><li>IDENTITY: Is this outcome in keeping with who you are </li></ul>
  17. 17. The learning zone <ul><li>The learning zone is when the perceived difficulty roughly matches the perceived resources. </li></ul><ul><li>The anxiety zone is when perceived difficulty is much greater. </li></ul><ul><li>The boredom ore drone zone is when perceived resources are much greater. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Generative learning <ul><li>Generative learning or double loop learning brings our beliefs and assumptions about the issue into a “feedback loop”. Feedback from our actions leads us to question our assumptions. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Body awareness <ul><li>We may store emotions in our body through muscle tension. </li></ul><ul><li>Kinesthetic awareness means being able to discriminate between subtle feelings in our bodies. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Emotional state, baseline state <ul><li>The secret of how to win friends is simple. People are attracted to anyone who can make them feel good. Emotion is contagious. </li></ul><ul><li>Your baseline state is the state where you feel most at home. It is not necessarily the most resourceful or the most comfortable, but it is the most familiar. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Association and dissociation <ul><li>When you are inside your body, seeing pictures through your own eyes, then you are associated. </li></ul><ul><li>When you see yourself as if from the outside then you are dissociated. </li></ul><ul><li>When you are associated you feel the feelings that go with the experience. </li></ul><ul><li>Association and dissociationare not just different ways of seeing a mental picture, they are ways of experiencing the world. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Association and dissociation <ul><li>Association is good for: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Enjoying pleasant experiences </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enjoying pleasant memories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Practising a skill </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Paying attention </li></ul></ul><ul><li>You are dissociated when: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You are thinking about something rather than being in it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You feel at distance from what you are doing. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You are aware of time passing. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You are at a distance from your bodily sensations. </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. Association and dissociation <ul><li>Dissociation is good for: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reviewing experience </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning from past experience </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keeping track of time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Taking a step back from unpleasant situations </li></ul></ul><ul><li>When you are dissociated, you are out of touch with your body. You will still have feelings, but they will be about what you see and not the same as the feelings you have inside the experience. </li></ul>
