The NLP Presuppositions - Joseph Clough NLP Trainings
The thirteen presuppositions (convenient assumptions) that are at the forefront principles central of NLP. I love them and I am sure you will do to. The more we try on this mindsets you will find that your world opens up to so many possibilities and new ways of thinking, feeling and acting. Further still when you learn them correctly on our NLP practitioner Training you will be able to create wonderful changes in your clients.
So let’s take it right from the top shall we?
1 Have respect for the other person’s model of the world.
Everyone is unique and experiences the world in their own way. Ecology is maintained by showing respect for the foundations of the other person’s belief system.
2. The map is not the territory.
People respond to their ‘map’ of reality, not to reality itself. The ‘Map of Reality’ is created from experiences, memories and beliefs, and NLP is the art of changing that map to create more choice.
3. Mind and body form a linked system.
Mental attitude affects your body and it is possible to make a change in one and affect the other.
4. If what you are doing isn`t working, do something else.
Flexibility is the key to success. The person with the most flexibility/choices of behaviour will have the most influence (The Law of Requisite Variety).
5. Choice is better than no choice.
Having options can provide more opportunities for achieving results, so all procedures should increase choice and develop greater personal flexibility.
6. We are always communicating.
Even when people remain silent, they are communicating through all their senses. Non-verbal communication can account for a large proportion of a message and NLP provides a guide to recognising congruence in these messages.
7. The meaning of your communication is the response you get.
While a person’s intention may be clear to them, it is the interpretation and response they get that reflects the effectiveness of their communication. Have the skills and flexibility to ensure that the message they send equals the message that is received.
8. There is no failure, only feedback.
Everything is a learning opportunity to discover what works. With this understanding, behaviour can be separated from identity, there is no need for blame of self or others, solutions can be found the quality of results can be improved.
9. Behind every behaviour there is a positive intention.
Identifying and understanding the original positive intention in unwanted behaviour can create new and better choices that preserve the positive intention and raise awareness.
10. If something is possible, then it is possible to learn how to do it.
Model excellence by breaking down and discovering the components and strategies needed to achieve a particular result – everyone has the ability to learn.
11. People have all the resources they need to make the changes they want.
NLP teaches how to access these resources when appropriate, because there are no unresourceful people, just unresourceful states.
12. There are no resistant clients, only inflexible communicators.
Any resistance is a result of inflexible communication and a lack of rapport.
13. We are all in charge of our own minds, and therefore our results
Recognise the implications of cause and effect, and take responsibility for running your own mind.
