The difference that makes the difference to your success and your life. It’s a success technology.
NLP has been described as an attitude and methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques. That’s what it means on a literal level, but I would say NLP is a success technology that makes a difference to your work and personal life.
The attitudes it teaches are, in general, the attitudes of successful people.
What makes successful people?
First up is curiosity. Master influencers are interested rather than interesting. You need to be interesting, but in order to do so you need to be interested in what your audience will want. Get into their mind and ask who are they, what they want, what they think and so on.
Secondly is wanton experimentation, the willingness to do whatever it takes to get the result you want, including doing things you’ve never done and may be taking you out of your comfort zone. Remember, always do, always get…
Changing from ‘Already know’ to ‘Acting as if’
The desire for wanton experimentation is what people who aren’t successful lack because they have the attitude that they already know what will or won’t work. Successful people take action and do something you’ve never done before even though they have no way of knowing in advance if it’ll work. They know that if you don’t get the result you wanted, you’ve still learnt that’s not the way to get results and so do something else in future.
Instead, switch to ‘Acting as if’. This attitude allows you to choose wanton experimentation. It means you’re about to do something, you’ve never done it before and what you do is act as if it’s a guarantee it’ll work even though you have no clue if it’ll work or not. It’s how we first learn to walk, and we should continue doing it throughout our lives.
When you were a kid it was called pretending and we’re encouraged to grow out of it. Never stop pretending.
The NLP methodology – modelling
In the 1970s three people – Milton Erickson, Virginia Satir and Fritz Perls – were getting life-changing results in 10-15hrs, an unheard of result. Richard Bandler and John Grinder took their finding and ‘modelled’ them – their physiology, how they communicated with body language, how they spoke to other people, structured language and their own beliefs and values while they worked with a client.
They took on the same physiology, use of language and thinking and much to their surprise they got the same results as these three. Out of this modelling came NLP. They then modelled top public speakers like JFK, Martin Luthor King, and top salespeople. They found that the patterns correlated between the three groups. If we were to chunk up on public speaking, selling, therapy, we get influence.
So NLP enables you to do anything and everything better.
What Performance Partnership offers
We help people learn the attitude, methodology and techniques to change their lives, no matter what stage they’re at in their learnings or what they want to get out of it.
So we have a choice of introductory training, like Fix Your Mind and Masters of Influence.
Fix Your Mind allows you to rid yourself of negative emotions, limiting beliefs, align values and set goals in a way they happen. Masters of Influence, meanwhile, integrates Cialdini’s 6 rules of influence, Ericksonian hypnosis and cold reading with one sole purpose – how to become a master influencer.
From there, you could move up to Practitioner training, showing you how to use NLP to do what you’re currently doing, better. But it’s also about your own development. The best coaches and practitioners are those who’ve had the most powerful personal results of NLP working for them.
Let’s say you then wanted to become a coach, do personal therapy, change work. Our Master Practitioner will show how to use NLP in an area you’re not currently an expert in.
Many of our attendees then say ‘actually I’d like to teach other people NLP’. So we then have Trainer and, if you want to train trainers, Master Trainer.
More than NLP
NLP for me is the single most powerful set of tools to take control of your own mind, your own thinking, so your brain does what you want. I don’t know of anything better to do that.
It allows you to structure your language to get the results you want. But we don’t just teach NLP, we go beyond that.
Hypnosis is the most effective, powerful set of techniques and tools to enable people to communicate with their unconscious mind, and its potential is mind-boggling.
Time Line Therapy is a set of tools and techniques to have your conscious and unconscious mind work together in the way they were designed to. It’s designed to allow people to let go of negative emotions from the past, let go of limiting belief, upgrade their values and set goals in a way that they actually happen.
Hawaiin Huna adds another dimension of energy. We are energetic beings, we connect and influence each other energetically. Huna brings that energy and spiritual dimension. It adds a dimension of magic to the things we do.
So whatever you’re looking to learn, we can help change your life.
