Essential Behaviour Change


2 days non residential


“If you always do what you’ve always done you will always get what you’ve always got”

This is a course that will allow each participant to make significant changes to those behaviours that they “have always done” to make sure that they “always get” the outcome they desire from their actions.

The majority of the course focuses on the use of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) techniques to facilitate the changes.

Who will the course benefit?

Anyone who feels that they are stuck in a behaviour pattern that is unwanted or who seems trapped by indecision and negative thoughts.

Course Objectives

By the end of the programme to enable delegates to: identify unwanted habits/thoughts/beliefs: learn and practice a variety of different behaviour change techniques: explore, through practice, how to use the techniques with yourself and others.

Skills Gained

Understand why negative behaviours are so persistent. Discover how their negative behaviour patterns were created. Use a variety of techniques to create change in themselves and others. Change to a positive emotional state at will. Resolve internal conflicts.

Content Introduction

An introduction to NLP, its creators, the pillars of NLP and how it is used today.

Positive Intentions A session which builds on the pre-supposition within NLP that all human behaviour has a positive intention. This is used to discover why some negative behaviours are so persistent.

Strength Deployment Inventory A behavioral model developed by Elias Porter which provides the delegates feedback on the key motivators for them. It also shows how their motivators may change when in conflict. This is used to develop strategies for dealing with others who have different motivators.

The Circle of Excellence An exploration of this technique which enables a rapid state change within an individual, promoting a choice in how to feel in all situations.

Logical Levels A discussion on the work by Robert Dilts detailing the different “logical levels” in which a person can operate. This is used within a technique to put problem situations into perspective.

Resolving Internal Conflict The delegates are introduced to the “Six Step Re-framing” pattern. This addresses any behaviour that seems to be out of conscious control but a change is desired.

Becoming Intentionally Compelled The Godiva Chocolate pattern links very strong, positive feelings with behaviours that need to continue but for which more motivation is needed.

The Meta-Mirror A pattern which creates a change in a relationship that is stuck or is not working as well as it could be. It allows the relationship to be viewed from three different perspectives to help create the change.
