Understanding the problem we cause ourselves by using the word 'makes'

1/13/2022
In NLP we have a range of ‘Linguistic presuppositions’, these are words that many of us use and they give an insight into the assumptions that we all make about the world around us. Very often those assumptions can be very disabling and unhelpful to us. Whilst there are a range of these linguistic presuppositions, the one I want to focus on today is ‘makes’. When someone uses the word ‘makes’ in a sentence like “You make me feel undervalued” then what we are actually saying is that we...

18. How does NLP work?

10/14/2021
In this podcast edition I talk in depth about how NLP works. NLP is primarily a system for understanding how we encode our subjective view of the world. When we encode our subjective view of the world we turn it into a program in our mind. NLP looks at that program and encoding and seeks to change the parts which are less helpful. Join me as I walk you through some practical exercises to experience how your encoding works for yourself. I know you will find it enlightening! Show...

12. Meditation to help with stress

11/19/2020
Stress can have a big impact on how we deal with our personal lives and business life. It can mean our resources are low, and when our resources are low success can be more difficult to achieve and maintain. I therefore think it is vital that we look after our mind in a variety of different ways, helping it to deal with the stresses of everyday life, and having a meditative practice, in my opinion, is an excellent way to do this. In this episode I've asked my good friend, Sue Wheeler from...

Values underpin everything you do. They help you decide on what action to take in any given situation and inform your right and wrong.

6/18/2020
The work of the psychology Professor, Clare Graves between the years 1952 and 1959 gives us a deep understanding of human nature and our psychological maturity. His theory runs alongside Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and gives a deeper level of understanding as to how individuals and organisations think and therefore solve problems in the world in which they live.

Successful people and businesses always have a goal, or Definite Chief Aim. This is your aim or goal in business, life, family, relationships and health. Experience shows that in it you need to define what you want to Be, Do and Have (in that order) then place this in your time line in the future and understand the changes you need to make today to make this happen.

2 - How is it possible?

4/19/2020
When we are communicating, particularly if that communication is challenging, asking the question "How is it possible for this person to believe that?" begins to give us an insight into their world, when we do that, they feel 'seen' and it helps us either understand their viewpoint with greater clarity or explain our viewpoint in a way that makes sense to them. Relationships deepen as a result and we're better able to communicate, greater for business and personal relationships, don't you...
