    The Only Advice You’ll Ever Need For Helping Clients Solve Their Problems – Practical NLP Podcast Episode 87

    https://youtu.be/4LEQl3Mu7jU









    A bit of a rant this week, inspired by the many, many posts I've seen on NLP forums from rookie NLP practitioners who ask what technique they should be using with a particular client problem.







    They're going about it all wrong, and their NLP trainers should have showed them the right way!







    Here's how to approach any client problem so you'll know what to do...







    (for SEO purposes I should probably mention that it's to do with strategy elicitation)

    Respect For The Other Person’s Map Of The World – Interview With Andy Smith part 2: Practical NLP Podcast 84

    Respect For The Other Person’s Map Of The World – Interview With Andy Smith part 2: Practical NLP Podcast 84

    This week we have the second half of an interview that we did about how to apply the principles or ‘presuppositions’ of NLP to improve your life and work.



    In the first half we explored the principle that “The map is not the territory”. In this interview we look at another principle that flows naturally from that one: “Respect for the other person’s map of the world”.



    Among other things, we talk about:



    * Why you can't change someone's mind unless you start from where they are now

    * The importance of establishing credibility in a business context

    * If you focus too much on achieving a desired outcome from every communication, you will miss out on more open conversations where both parties learn from each other.

    * Appreciative Inquiry, a method of change that focuses on doing more of what is already working rather than trying to analyse problems, and the difference that can make in your life (OK it's not NLP but it's worth knowing about)

    * How to use the ‘scaling’ tool from the related field of Solution Focus in coaching and self-improvement (also not NLP, also worth knowing about)

    * How to use ‘chunking’ to overcome inertia

    * ... and much more!



    My interviewer is NLP coach Deb Johnstone, and the interview was originally conducted as part of her ‘Better Balance Greater Business’ summit - contact her at debjohnstone.com.au to find out more about that.



    The free gift she mentions is my audiobook Practical NLP: How to use NLP principles to improve your life and work, even if you’re not NLP trained yet - download it from nlppod.com!



    More about the 'Respect For The Other Person's Map Of The World' presupposition



    More about establishing your credibility



    More about outcome-focused persuasion versus learning conversations here: 'Is NLP Manipulative?'



    More about how to use scaling questions



    More about Appreciative Inquiry here - I run a two-day course in how to get started with using it in group facilitation or one-to-one coaching.

    The Map Is Not The Territory – Interview With Andy Smith: Practical NLP Podcast Episode 83

    The Map Is Not The Territory – Interview With Andy Smith: Practical NLP Podcast Episode 83

    This week’s episode is something a bit different. Instead of me interviewing a prominent member of the NLP community, it’s someone interviewing me – about the principles or ‘presuppositions’ of NLP and how you can use them to be more effective in your life and work, even if you’re not NLP trained.



    My interviewer is Deb Johnstone, an NLP coach based in Cairns City, Australia. Deb specialises in helping women business owners to achieve more with less stress, and to this end she put together the ‘Better Balance Greater Business’ summit, a series of video interviews with 23 experts, one of which was me.



    You may have seen my messages and blog posts about this last month – it was a wonderful opportunity for people who signed up to get a lot of knowledge for free.



    Now that the summit has finished, my interview has become available for release. I think it’s the best interview I’ve done so far.



    This is the first half of the audio from the interview – if you want to see the video (it’s pretty much two ‘talking heads’), I have now put that up on my YouTube channel.



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kS2LQSpZTDE&t=3s



    It was supposed to be a half-hour interview, but we ended up talking for over an hour. That’s a bit long for a podcast (or longer than my listeners are used to anyway) so this episode is part one, with part two coming next week.



    This episode is all about the most important (in my view) presupposition of NLP, the idea that ‘the map is not the territory’.



    In other words, what you are experiencing right now, your reality, is not actually the real world around you, but a filtered and partial representation of it, that bears the same relation to objective reality as a map does to the territory that it represents.



    Most people confuse the map with the territory. In the interview, we talk about the various problems that can cause, and how to avoid those problems.



    To explore this topic further, you may be interested in the earlier article about this presupposition, the story of ‘The Ultimate Map’, and of course my free audiobook ‘Practical NLP: how to use NLP principles to improve your life and work, even if you're not NLP trained’ that covers this and the other 'presuppositions' of NLP in depth.

    Shelle Rose Charvet And The LAB Profile®: Practical NLP Podcast 82

    Shelle Rose Charvet And The LAB Profile®: Practical NLP Podcast 82

    This week's episode is an interview with LAB Profile® queen Shelle Rose Charvet - with a very special offer included!



    One of the most respected figures in NLP, (and probably the most entertaining speaker), and bestselling author, Shelle has been researching and using the LAB Profile® (a more user-friendly development of metaprograms) for over 25 years.



    In our conversation, we discover:



    * how Shelle got into NLP

    * what she's excited about in the field now

    * the existence of software that can analyse people's LAB Profile patterns from their emails and tell you how to reply in a way that matches their patterns

    * why the LAB Profile is not about putting people in boxes

    * how to recruit proactive people

    * a tip for influencing 'internally referenced' people that won't put off 'externally referenced' people

    * ... and much more!



    Special offer for podcast listeners - valid until 16 April 2018:



    Take the Online LAB Practitioner certification course for half price - visit this link to check it out and should you decide to go ahead, use the coupon code FROMANDY50% (I am taking this course myself and I can confirm that it's really useful and high quality)



    Sites Shelle mentions in the podcast:



    The NLP Research and Recognition Project



    The NLP Leadership Summit



    Books by Shelle:



    If you are at all interested in NLP, you probably have Shelle's first book, Words That Change Minds: Mastering The Language Of Influence, already (and if you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend it).



    Shelle tells me that her second book, The Customer Is Bothering Me, is really the one that the NLP reader will be interested in, as it takes the insights of the LAB Profile to the next level (which has given me the nudge I needed to finally start reading it myself).
