Here are just a few ways in which NLP is being used in a business context right now:Inter-staff Communication
NLP approaches communication on many levels. Employers worldwide already see the benefit of developing interpersonal skills with emotional intelligence training including principles that recognize and use powerful language patterns to empower.It also includes training to make the most of the non-verbal sides of communication – how to fine-tune your senses and be more sensitive to others in order to achieve successful outcomes.Leadership
NLP isn’t just about improving the individual employee, it’s designed to make you a better manager because you are more tuned in to your staff and more aware of the way that you are communicating.
Very often people are unaware of the assumptions they make in the language they use and are thus unaware of how those assumptions make other people feel. Shifting the way you communicate can make people feel more at ease, happier and more motivated. All of these benefits feed into the running of the company, making people feel more valued and committed to their workplace and their colleagues.Leadership is also enhanced by enabling you to properly work out and communicate your vision for the business and its staff. This positively affects morale and productivity.Presentations
NLP can be used to deliver internal training and presentations.For example, one aspect of NLP teaches you how to reduce stress levels when speaking in public. Fear of public speaking is the world’s most common phobia, and people with massive talents and much to give often find public speaking to be a stumbling block.
Once you are comfortable in front of others, however, that is only the beginning of how NLP can be used. Because people with NLP training behind them are aware of the way the emotional state of the trainer affects and influences the state of the audience, the trainer is shown how to bring his or her own state to an optimal level and thereby bring the audience along, too.Specific use of body language and of spoken language combine to make a far more powerful effect on the audience, sweeping away the “death by powerpoint” experience that is far too prevalent in the boardroom and making real impact.Improving personal effectiveness
NLP can change long term behavioural patterns – in the workplace, colleagues understand each other better and are more equipped to respond adequately toeach others’ and customers’ needs and desires. Home relationships retrieve a sense of meaningful dialogue and a new kind of perception. Obviously, well-functioning relationships are vital to the success of any business or personal life.Confidence and presence
Utilising all or a combination of NLP techniques will lead to greater confidence and presence, maximisingyou ability to communicate more concisely, identify and be clear about what really matters to you and create compelling goals.
- Master your emotions – Calmly collate relevant information under pressure.
- Remain calm, focused and thorough at all times
- Instant confidence and motivation – Maximize your presence in business situations. Remain self-assured during critical negotiations
- Use language with greater precision – Clearly articulate your views and ideas with pinpoint focus. Create compelling and persuasive arguments.
- Change unwanted behavior in yourself and others – Manage teams more effectively. Motivate and inspire staff every day.
Most people don’t recognize that there is a particular structure to the way that positive negotiations work. The “inocculation” of clients against doubt, the reframing of objections, sharing of a vision, the setting out of a positive course of action and enthusing people to follow that course are all included in the techniques taught in NLP training.
All of this comes from being able to recognise the particular state in which the client or partner is currently in, and shift them to the desired state of agreement and approval. State awareness of yourself and others is absolutely central to closing a deal.
