It will provide you with the skills necessary to improve your performance at work, whilst giving you a sound understanding of how to get the best out of yourself and the people around you through the use of well-established NLP techniques.

09:30-09:40  Introduction      

Introduction to the seminar, the presenter, the objectives and agenda for the day.

09:40-10:15 What is NLP         

This session covers what NLP is, and isn’t, as well as an outline of the origins of NLP, the NLP model and the four pillars of NLP.

10:15-11:00 Blame Frame versus Outcome Frame      

This session outlines the first pillar of NLP and gets the delegates to use it while thinking about what they can achieve from knowing more about NLP.

11:00-11:15 Break          

11:15-13:00 NLP Presuppositions        

The second pillar of NLP is about having flexibility and in order to really understand this concept, the delegates need to know what the underlying laws of NLP are, which is what this session is about. Delegates will practise the presuppositions by doing an exercise called the ‘presupposition circle’.

13:00-14:00 Lunch          

14:00-17:00 Sensory Acuity         

The third pillar of NLP is sensory acuity. Firstly, they will learn what sensory acuity is and how they can detect it through verbal and auditory cues while calibrating the other person. Delegates will learn the difference between sensory acuity and mind reading and practise it via an activity. Delegates will also learn how to use sensory acuity to build rapport and to pick up on eye accessing cues. There will be lots of activities and exercises to practise building rapport and eye movement integration.


09:30-11:00 State Management        

One of the key abilities in NLP is to be able to manage one’s own state and be able to observe state in others. This session describes what is meant by state, why it is so important, how to identify it and change it. The delegates will do various exercises to change their state and to try out their new skills.

11:00-11:15 Break          

11:15-13:00 Anchoring         

Anchoring is one way of harnessing and creating resourceful states and so delegates will learn what anchoring is, why it works and how to do it. They will practise various anchoring techniques to create empowering states such as confidence, positivity and resilience.

13:00-14:00  Lunch         

14:00-17:00  Changing Behaviour       

Delegates will spend the afternoon learning various techniques which utilises all the skills they’ve learnt to-date with the outcome of changing their own (and others) behaviours. These include mapping across, perceptual positions and the circle of excellence. By the end, they will have completed the four pillars of NLP.
