After this module you will have learned key influence and persuasion processes to be highly effective in rapport building and communication in your work place.
Module II: New Code NLP skills for High Performance
NLP began its life as a model for working with change in others. Since the early days of NLP the formats have evolved to become one of, if not the most effective, models for coaching. New Code NLP Coaching is about creating a context where high performance emerges naturally. The effectiveness of New Code NLP can be seen in the results that come from the New Code NLP coaching sessions.
You will learn:
- The use of the word ‘client’ below is to describe the person you are coaching; this could be a paying client, a person in your team if you are a team leader or any person in your company if you are a coach within a business.
- How to create states of high performance in people you are coaching, so when your clients are in the environment where they were challenged they perform at a very high level
- To engage and utilise the bigger part of the client’s mind and bring off line resources to every day awareness for increased levels of performance
- To elicit and work with pre-conscious trigger points in the client’s experience, to deal with situations where a client loses control and is quickly sucked into challenging situations, or where the situation builds so slowly the client doesn’t realise it until they are totally engulfed
- How to effectively leverage and align a client’s attention with their intention so that in everyday business situations attention is directed in the most effective and affective direction
- How to use tasking so the client has a series of practical experiences to layer in behaviours relevant to a new skill or resources in an area of challenge
- Working and interacting within the client’s own story to build resources and choices
After this module you will have learned how to use some of the most advanced change models in NLP to create rapid and lasting change in the people you are working with. When using NLP in coaching sessions your clients will find that they now have a plethora of new ways and choices of dealing with areas where previously they were challenged.
Module III: NLP models for business applications: leadership, sales, negotiation and marketing
Having learned NLP core skills for influence and New Code NLP for coaching, it’s now time to work with some specific applications of NLP in business. Whatever your title is within the business, sales, negotiation, marketing and leadership will feature either implicitly or explicitly within your role. Your ability to lead defines how far you progress in your organisation, your ability to sell defines not only how much business you can attract but how well you sell your ideas to colleagues and managers.
Your ability to negotiate defines not just your ability to get the best deal, it defines your mental strength and personal effectiveness, and your ability to market defines how you communicate abstract messages in different mediums so that people have a tangible experience of relating to what is being said. For some people these skills feature explicitly in their every day work and for others they are more implicit. At whatever level, they will feature in your work as they are fundamental to business success.
You will learn:
- The neuro linguistic sales model developed by Michael Carroll for optimal selling. This model blends tried and tested sales tools with the highly effective persuasion processes from NLP
- The art of getting agreement and closing in sales and negotiation
- Marketing with NLP, using the language from all communication systems and hypnotic style language to send appealing concrete messages that are listened to
- Developing your leadership style, connecting with your core leadership qualities and raising your own game to be a strong leader
- Communicating as a leader when giving public speeches, so that your audience is drawn to you
- NLP communication and persuasion processes for negotiation; getting agreement when there are differences, reading the other side’s non verbal behaviour and adapting how you communicate so the other side cannot read you easily
After this module you will have taken your prior NLP knowledge and combined it with the specific applications of sales, marketing and negotiation with strong leadership, to be highly effective in the many different spheres of business.
