You can’t make ‘em change

By | Blog Original, NLP Weekly Tip

It’s happened to all of us. We have someone in our lives and we want to help them change. Maybe they want to quit smoking, make more money or improve an important relationship in their life. Whatever it is, the story is the same. They tell us they want to change, they have tried to change, and they have never successfully changed. So, what is that about? Can you help them change, and more importantly, should you? One of the…

The Next Step in Perceptual Positions

By | NLP Training, NLP Weekly Tip, Practice & Processes

Have you ever felt like, even though you understand and have practiced perceptual positions, sometimes they don’t make change by themselves?  Like sometimes you need something else, another bucket than the three standard positions? Perceptual positions are a core distinction in NLP, one that is used in multiple processes and techniques. Our perceptual positions guide our experiences. It is through this key distinction that we form memories, experiences and reactions. But what if our perceptual positions aren’t clear? What if…

By | Blog Original, Career & Professional, NLP Weekly Tip, Practice & Processes, Wealth & Abundance

A coaching relationship involves two people. The coach and the client. Last week we talked about what kind of coach you want to be, what you want to specialize in, and how to share what you do with the world. (If you want to read more about that, check out Finding Your Clients)  Now I’d like to talk about the other person in an NLP coaching practice (or any kind of coaching practice) …the client.

Finding Your Clients

By | Blog Original, Career & Professional, NLP Training, NLP Weekly Tip, Practice & Processes, Relationships, Stories & Metaphors, Wealth & Abundance

For many of us, finding clients is the only thing standing between us and success. You may feel your training is solid, your skills are dialed in, and you have accumulated some fantastic successes. Given that, your practice should be full and keeping you busy, right? Wrong. If only practice building were that easy. Regardless of your experience, you still need to market yourself in order to keep a full practice. And for many coaches, marketing is a difficult thing….

Working with Other People’s Meta-Programs

I’m very fortunate.  Business has been busy and growing. While, like anyone, there are bumps in the road, things are all in all going well. In fact, I’ve just added new members to my team.

Submodalities in communication

How your preferred submodality impacts communication

By | Applying NLP Now, NLP Weekly Tip, Relationships, Stories & Metaphors

One of the most valuable lessons I learned from my mom and step-dad – everyone processes at different speeds. You see, my mom was a very quick thinker with a wicked sense of humor. My step-dad, brilliant in his own right, was a much slower thinking, processing everything before responding. Unfortunately for my mother, that often meant going days without getting an answer or input on something. My mom, as a quick thinker, was also not always long on patience!…

What is your theme this year?

By | Blog Original, Career & Professional, Mindset, NLP Weekly Tip

We’ve all heard about it.  We may have even been asked.   “What is your theme for 2017?” Now, maybe someone calls it “your word” or some other phrase, but the idea is the same.  A word or phrase that sums up what you would like your intention to be for the upcoming year. It’s sort of like making resolutions, but on a broader scale.  Rather than listing out goals or resolutions for the year, choosing a theme or word…
