NLP Training Workshop For SHRI Staff
Most people may have heard of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) or may have even attended some past training. Yet when it comes to applying it in their daily lives, many are unfortunately, clueless. This is one of the most often heard remarks from my audience.
Do not despair as NLP is not something that is beyond the reach of all. Neither is it so mystical that only a few blessed ones are able to crack the magic code.
Simply put, NLP is the study of excellence. In order to reach the pinnacle of success in life, knowing how and when to apply the various techniques of NLP is that key.
Sharing with the staff at the Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI) this afternoon, many of whom signed up especially for this NLP class, I had more than my dosage of fun and participation today. Like all my programmes, my “Applying NLP In Your Daily Lives” programme is 100% practical hands-on.
There are many tenets of NLP but the ones I love most are those that enable us to build better rapport with others. In a society where we are always surrounded by people – colleagues, clients and vendors at the workplace; and family and friends outside the office, learning how to build rapport with others will put us in good stead. If we can observe their eyeball patterns, listen to their choice of words used and read their body language; it is half the battle won. Just like how I share with my participants in my grooming workshops that it takes just half a second to leave a positive lasting first impression, so too can you get into the world of the other person in as brief as one minute.
Should you want to go a step further, then what you can do after decoding the representational system of your partner is to mirror him or her. Just like a physical mirror when we can look into and see our own reflection, mirroring is yet another very useful NLP tenet. We can mirror almost anything under the sun – ranging from gestures, breathing patterns to tonality and speed of voice.
And less you be taken by surprise, it really is that easy to instantly change your present state in that split second. Just like how you would snap your fingers when you get that eureka moment, so can you snap out of your present state in the same manner. Still feeling down and overburdened by work? Snap out of it! Change your state! There are the participants showing you how to do it 🙂
