Business and NLP: How NLP is useful in a business environment?

Business and NLP: How NLP can be incorporated into every day business life?

Janet Woodjetts is an NLP Trainer from NLP School London. Janet has more than 25 years of training and business development experience. She is efficiently using NLP in a business environment and now wants to tell you some insights about Business & NLP.

Following on from our webinar on Friday, I thought it might be useful to talk about how NLP can be incorporated into every day business life.

It’s important to re-iterate that NLP is not something you ‘do’ on or to someone. Neither do you need to announce ‘I’m just remembering an NLP technique to manage this difficult situation!’

Here are a couple of NLP Presuppositions that can be a useful starting point and we will be inviting your thoughts on these and other NLP presuppositions during Module 1 and throughout the programme.

“It is best to meet people in their model of the world”

When we relax the need to have people see things from our ‘map of reality’, we are more likely to establish and build rapport with them and begin to understand their map of reality.

As we gain insights from ‘meeting’ another person in their own map of the world, we are opening up our own awareness and allowing connection with another part of a system together with a new understanding that can come from us being in this place.

We may even begin to challenge our own judgments of another’s behaviour and the path those judgements can take us along in a given situation. In turn, these insights can inform the way we communicate with the other person. We are developing the skill of flexibility, rapport, sensory acuity and a well-formed outcome which are the four pillars of NLP.

This does not mean standing down over an critical business decision; by knowing what is important to the other person and the place from which they are operating, we have a greater choice about how we communicate with them which in turn can pave the way for a deeper and more meaningful interaction.

Achieving an outcome where both parties demonstrate respect for each other and their perceived reality of a situation is very powerful in the business environment.

“It’s easier to change yourself than other people”

Another NLP presupposition and one which often encourages comments such as “why should I?” “When I know I’m right why should I have to do things differently?” “I don’t want to change myself!”

So, let’s use our first presupposition example; If you are able to suspend the ‘my map of reality, is reality’ approach to a difficult conversation or meeting, then you are freeing yourself, albeit for a very short time, to absorb the gift of a lot of new information and insights. You are, in essence changing yourself.

These may or may not impact the decisions you make however you can make those decisions from a more informed position. This can only be positive when working in a system and NLP shares models and techniques that allow you to be both part of the system and take a meta (out of the system) position too.

So, this presupposition doesn’t mean that there is an expectation that you will want to change yourself on a permanent basis but you might choose to change the way you approach certain situations.

I am often asked by potential students before they commit to registering for an NLP Certification Programme, “how will I be able to integrate this into my work?” At the risk of sounding repetitive, the more you practice, the more you are able to relate and understand how you can internalise what you learn into your own individual role and organisation.

During the training, we create a safe, confidential environment for you to learn, discuss, debate and develop your understanding and skills. During the de-briefs, we welcome you offering your insights on how you might use a particular learning. Your on-going modular assessment is based around sharing your ‘between module’ implementation and practice and any insights that come from these. We invite and encourage you to reflect on the process rather than the content which could of course, be of a confidential nature.

You might even be surprised at how many people say “I think I already knew this {concept} instinctively, but I wasn’t using the knowledge to develop myself and my business.”
