NLP SINGAPORE – 5 CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS THAT I HAVE LEARNT FROM DR RICHARD BANDLER

Posted by on Mar 27, 2013 in NLP Singapore, NLP Success & Life Tips, NLP Training | 0 comments

Hi Friends

I have just came back from Orlando (Florida) after attending Society of NLP’s Charisma Enhancment Trainers Training.

It was an amazing experience to meet Dr Richard Bandler …… as usual …. and watching him on stage performing his magical NLP Demos and his story-telling skills.

For those of you who have not seen Dr Richard Bandler before, I have provided a video below so that you can appreciate his style of communication:

So the following are 5 Critical Success Factors that I personally felt that they may be useful to you. Do note that some may be new , some may be a reinforcement to something that you may already know. So there you go:

#1 SENSE OF HUMOUR

OK. Now this you know. You may think that you know. It’s what you know but rather when you communicate with another person, are you able to elicit a response from them where they might smile or laugh so that the ice is broken between you and the person you are communicating. The secret lies in Richard’s ability to use his facial expression, tonality and body language. Watch the video below:

#2 Usage of a Nested Loops

Nested loops are usage of stories where only half of any story is told at the beginning where the 2nd half will be told at the end. I have been using such stories in most of my trainings. Purpose of Nested Loops is to plant ideas to the unconscious mind and for the audience to connect the dots. If you are still wondering what are Nested Loops, have you ever wonder why some action movies will show the most exciting segment right at the beginning and then suddenly, it leaves you hanging at the most critical point. The movie will then start from the beginning, continue with the flow until the end where the story will then link back to the exciting moment which was shown right in the beginning. It’s a great example of story telling where it catches your attention right in the beginning, suspense your interest and reveal the other half of the exciting portion right at the end.

An example will be a short clip below from the movie Inception. Watch the entire clip below and see how one scene jumps abruptly to another:

 #3 Usage Spatial Anchors

I have used this numerous times in my presentation to engage audience and it was a great reminder again. If you are new to this phrase ‘spatial anchors’, it simply means usage of space (ie. spatial) on the floor/stage to tell a specific story and then another space to tell a different story and so on. The purpose is so that each specific space Anchors a specific story which may elicit a certain state from the audience.

#4 How Behaviour Can be Shifted Using Submodalites 

Before I explain what are Submodalities, let me ask you a few questions:

(i) “Recall a moment in time where you felt absolutely happy …….”

(ii) “Are there pictures, sound and/or feelings in your mind right now?”

If there are pictures (Visual), sound (Auditory) or feelings (Kinethetic) in your mind, each of these is a Modality. If there are picture(s) in your mind, are the pictures small/big, near/far, black & white/colour? The finer elements of each Modality is a Submodality. Small/Big is a Submodality of the Visual Modality.

Watch the video below to witness how Dr Richard Bandler guide the volunteer to ‘play’ with the image and video in his mind.

Pay attention to the story which Dr Richard Bandler told right at the end of the demo? Do you know what is the message behind the story?

#5 Usage of Embedded Commands

I wonder what are embedded commands by itself is an embedded command ……..

NLP 101 – HOW NLP WAS BORN

Posted by on May 16, 2011 in NLP 101 | 0 comments

Dear Friends

Many thought that NLP was a new tool. In fact, it started way back in 1970s and has evolved and time tested across across 40 years. Some pointers about the history of NLP are as follows:
• NLP began in early 1970s, when Richard Bandler (a psychology student I University of California Santa Cruz) was transcribing a taped therapy session by Gestalt Therapist Fritz Perls
• Bandler found certain patterns of Perls language which increase its acceptance by clients
• Bandler brought his findings to John Grinder (a linguist) and they produced “Meta Model”
• Bandler & Grinder subsequently modelled after 3 extraordinary psychotherapist: Fritz Perls (Psychotherapist), Virginia Satir (Family Therapist), Dr Milton Erickson (Hypnotherapist) and uncovered the patterns of human excellence
• Went on to model after achievers in other fields (business, sports, education, health, etc) and identify their common structure – NLP was born
• Both of their initial discoveries were recorded in 4 books between 1975 and 1977. The books were called “The Structure of Magic I & II”, “Patterns I & II” and 2 books on Erickson’s hypnotherapy work
• NLP was then evolved into 2 complementary directions: 1) As a process to discover the patterns of excellence in any field, 2) As the effective ways of thinking and communicating used by outstanding individuals

Bandler and Grinder reviewed many hours of audio and video of the top 3 psychotherapists spent months imitating how they worked with clients, in order to replicate or ‘model’ the communication patterns which supposedly made these individuals more successful than their peers. While the style and approach of these psychotherapists were apparently different, Bandler and Grinder believed that all experts in human communication (including Perls, Satir and Erickson) have patterns in common that could be learnt by others. They claimed that there were a few common traits expert communicators – whether top therapists, top executives or top salespeople – all seemed to share.

NLP 101 – WHAT IS NLP …….. REALLY

Posted by on May 13, 2011 in NLP 101 | 0 comments

Dear Friends

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, in which I would call it a psychology of excellence and a technology of achievement. It was founded by both Richard Bandler and linguist, DrJohn Grinder, in the early 1970s. It is a powerful tool that encompasses the 3 most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology (ie. Neuro) , language (ie. Linguistic) and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, our mind and how we think and behave which stems from our 5 senses. Language in this case means verbal and other non-verbal communication systems through which our perceptions are coded, ordered and given meaning. It also meant how we use such languages to order our thoughts and to communicate with others. Our programming determines how we organized our ideas and actions to achieve our results and the kinds of models of the world we create. Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay effects our body and behavior (programming), and eventually results.

In simpler terms, NLP is how you can use the language of the mind, to create any desired emotions (eg. confidence, courage, powerful, etc.) that you want and subsequently produce the results that you want. NLP is not only about competence and excellence, it is also about wisdom and vision.

For the techie people who wants a more in-depth definition, listen to the co-founders themselves by watching the following video below:

Robert Dilts has been an avid developer, author, trainer and consultant in the field of Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) since its creation in 1975 by John Grinder and Richard Bandler.

He is best known for his work on beliefs, strategies and Systemic NLP. One of a popular technique that Robert has introduced into the NLP arena includes Sleight of Mouth, a set of language patterns for shifting beliefs, Changing Belief Systems with NLP, Beliefs: Pathways to Health and Well-Being with Tim Hallbom and Suzi Smith and many others. He is also the primary author of NLP, Volume 1 with Richard Bandler, John Grinder and Judith Delozier.

Videos – What is NLP?

Posted by on Aug 4, 2009 in NLP 101, NLP Introduction, NLP Singapore, NLP Video | 0 comments

What is NLP?

Watch the below youtube videos.  It may take some time for loading.

What is NLP? by Richard Bandler

What is NLP? by John Grinder

The 2 co-founders of NLP (Richard Bandler & John Grinder) talks about what NLP is. If I may summarised for you, Richard Bandler in his video defines “NLP is the study of the Structure of Subjectivity” whereas John Grinder defines “NLP is the Modelling of Excellence”. You might be confused especially when you watch John Grinder’s video which is why you can’t learn NLP just by reading books, listening to audio CDs or learning online.

Let me share with you how NLP has already influenced you without you knowing in your daily life. If you drive along the road and you see red traffic light, may I ask what will you do? You will definitely say “Stop”.

The question is “Who told you to stop?”. Answers that I get from my participants range from the law, the driving centre, traffic police, etc.

All the answers are correct. The driver has been trained to stop when they see red light. In NLP perspective, the information you see (ie. red light) goes through one of your 5 senses (ie. Visual) which is the “NEURO’ of Neuro-linguistic Programming since information is communicated via our nervous system.

When the information goes into our mind, we unconsciously label our experience as “Stop” which is the “LINGUISTIC” of Neuro-linguistic Programming. Our right leg then automatically step on the brakes because it has already been conditioned or “PROGRAMMED” to do so.

If you can programme your mind to step on the brake, brush your teeth, eat your breakfast or even do a Banji Jump. You already have the ability to programme your mind to be constantly motivated such that you can make more money, excel in your career, gain confidence, improve your relationship, etc. It’s a matter of HOW!

Studies show that NLP skills can be learned by anyone to improve their effectiveness both personally and professionally.
