NLP & Clean Language – What That Means For Coaching
When we consciously understand our uniqueness, how our beliefs, our values, our skills and our understanding of the world, influence our outcomes in situations, we become leaders of ourselves and others.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a system for exploring how our patterns in the way we speak influence how we experience the world around us.
- Neuro – refers to our patterns in thinking; how we hold information
- Linguistic - refers to our patterns in language; both inwardly to ourselves and outwardly in conversation with others
- Programming – refers to our habits or conditioning over time of getting the results we want – either consciously or otherwise.
So, when our clients talk, we hear the words on the surface, and the real meaning attached to their chosen words is hidden in their deeper structure. Our challenge as a coach is to decode the meaning behind what they express. What is important isn’t so much the content but the way in which they express it – that is where the key learning lies. By using clean language, we learn more because we interfere less and attempt to make the unconscious conscious.
In this session, Viv will look at how to structure questions cleanly and bring the client’s awareness to their patterns in language and what that reveals about the way they view the world.
This will be a session where you will have the chance to practice asking clean questions and impact of working in this way. You will come away with greater awareness of the power of patterns and some useful tools to incorporate into your own coaching practice.
