Eventually I Realised That to Become Truly Confident, You Need to Become Truly Competent
Click here to listen to a 9 minute sample of this audio!
When I started learning and using NLP, with some reading or some training under my belt, I was not yet able to get the kind of consistent results that I knew are possible (I wanted to be able to create the kinds of sudden & profound shifts I'd read about in books like 'Frogs Into Princes').
It's a common feeling for new NLP practitioners. Knowing lots of great NLP techniques, but not quite sure of how to put them all together to create powerful, lasting shifts that help you build a reputation for results.
Everyone wants to do the kind of linguistic magic that can give people powerful insights and solutions in the course of an 'ordinary' conversation - don't you? This is one of the things that first attracted me to NLP - I loved the idea of becoming a master of language, but didn't feel entirely confident using so-called 'language patterns'.
Intuitively knowing that to become truly confident, I realised you have to become truly competent. I wanted to be able walk into any coaching situation with the kind of off-the-scale confidence in my abilities that would translate into BIG results, whether I was working with a friend over dinner, or the CEO of a multi-national company. To do that, you basically have to build a level of skill that earns you genuine confidence.
Just wanted to thank you for the time we spent together on Monday. I can honestly say it was the most helpful, relevant and effective coaching/training/therapy I have ever had by some way. [Rob Taylor - Head of Field Sales, Caudwell Communications]
People often ask what it is that's needed to do this. While some of it is down to my sales skills, I've got to admit that I've never been the world's greatest salesman. In fact, most of my 'persuasion & influence' ability has come as a result of applying what I've learned studying NLP. I believe that there are three main things that have led to my success as an NLP coach :
Delegates on courses have told us "These coaching techniques are amazing - you've got to get a recording of this stuff!". So we found a great opportunity - spend a day with a group of coaches at one of the country's leading coaching organisations, teaching & demonstrating NLP Coaching skills. What they got was an in-depth masterclass which revealed some of the most powerful attitudes, frameworks & techniques for creating profound changes, quickly & easily. And we got it all on tape.
Better yet - as we listened back to the recording of the event, something clicked - this is the material that most new coaches wish had been able to listen to.
Here are just a few of the things we used these processes to do (the processes you'll learn from these audios):
You can use use these processes in every single situation you go into with a client or prospective client. For example :
These are the processes that will help you develop "real-world mastery" of NLP, especially when it comes to coaching others. Imagine being able to:
Here are some of the specifics you're going to start mastering as you listen to these audios & put what you discover into practice:
Empowered me to change the way I deal with people, which has made an enormous difference to our clients and myself.
Of course, this audio is also chock full of nested loops, covert & overt metaphors, embedded commands & boatloads of hypnotic language; I use NLP to start installing the attitudes & skills of NLP while you listen (you still need to practice though!)
There are overt & covert demonstrations & a huge variety of NLP patterns & techniques which mean you can listen to it over & over again, discovering new layers, skills & approaches every time (this is one of the ways I developed my skills, by the way: listening to audios by the best, repeatedly asking myself "What's his intention when he says that?")
There are also 6 demos - this is the difference between theory & practice - you even get to hear me screw stuff up occasionally! I'm not perfect - I make mistakes too - that's how I learn, & it's how you can too.
Dozens of the NLP Coaching Card & Hypnosis card patterns - if you've read the cards but haven't quite figured out how to use them elegantly in challenging situations, now's your chance.
I'll start (as usual) by saying who it isn't for.
