Neuro-Linguistic Programming Is
The Scientific Key To Building Your Confidence
Confidence is the root of much of our success in life. In general, other people will react more positively towards us if we are more confident. Feeling confident makes it easier for us to make new friends or find romantic partners.
On the other hand, if people can sense that you are not fully confident, they tend to react more negatively. That means they will be less likely to want to interact with you in the future. This rejection can lower your self confidence even further and create a downward spiral that can seem impossible to get out of.
This is just as true in business as it is in your personal life. Confident people make more sales, get promoted more often, get better raises and in general thrive in the business climate. People with lower self confidence tend to falter or hit the "glass ceiling."
NLP can help.
Confidence is based on how you see yourself and your general overall faith in your own abilities. How confident you are is completely within your control. If you fail it is because you believe you are a failure. If you succeed it is because you believe in your success.
Simple, easy-to-do NLP exercises can help you how to boost your confidence naturally. They can transform your limiting beliefs into ones that propel you forward. They can shatter the negative memories that keep you back while showing you how to create successful, confident behavior patterns. And before you know it, you'll be setting new, realistic goals, appreciating your natural talents, and getting your life back on track.
NLP a brief history...
NLP stands for neurolinguistic programming. NLP teaches us to create excellence. It offers you a wealth of skills for that purpose.
John Grinder and Richard Bandler developed NLP in the early 1970’s. John Grinder was a professor of linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. Richard Bandler was a student of computing and mathematics. They worked with ingenious, talented and successful people to turn NLP into a major method of training for people from all walks of life.
People use NLP in their everyday relationships, and they use it to achieve success in everything from sales to sports. As a professor of linguistics, Grinder was very interested in the connections between language, the mind, and behaviour. Bandler had a true gift for a key NLP skill called modelling
The basic model of NLP IS to model. NLP helps you achieve excellence by modelling how others have achieved excellence. If you want to become the best tennis player in the world, NLP can help you do that. If you want to be the highest-paid sales person, NLP can help you do that.
NLP can do that, because there are people who have already achieved the kinds of things you want to achieve. NLP unlocks THEIR secrets to unlock YOUR potential.
The neuro in neurolinguistic refers to our nervous system, including the brain. You could say neuro refers to how our body handles our experiences. You can feel great, you can have a traumatic reaction, you can be depressed or be highly motivated, depending on how your nervous system handles your experiences.
Your experiences include all the senses, including symbols like words. That explains why linguistic appears in neurolinguistic. Linguistic, a word related to language, refers to how symbols affect us. When a personal coach helps us become motivated, they use words to affect our nervous system. A coach can help you get into a good 'state'.
The word programming appears in neurolinguistic programming because NLP uses symbols and experiences in the best possible way to achieve excellence. You can program your nervous system to bring out successful thinking and behaviour that goes way beyond what you could do without these methods.
NLP uses very smart techniques to improve our reactions to the challenges of life. This way, we feel motivated to take on the challenges that matter most. We learn how to shrink the size of the challenges while we grow our abilities. NLP will tell you exactly how to do that, and much more.
What are the benefits of having an executive coach?
· Improve management, leadership and communication skills
· Advance your influencing, negotiation and problem solving
· Improve relationships with colleagues
· Rapidly develop your career
· Boost your performance
· Improve your work/life balance
· Help you to be happier and more confident
Much of the study of NLP is about modelling excellence. As an executive your responsibilities are to your company. You serve the needs of those working both above and below you. You are required to operate from a position where you create a work pattern which propels you towards excellence, and in the process provides strong leadership to those around you.
It’s a complex job!
The key to good management is developing a healthy working pattern.
So often the major cause of stress in an executive lifestyle is time management. How you value your time away from the office is important.
Your commitment to a clear work/life balance can mean the difference between enthusiastic progression in your chosen field and being in a constant state of overwhelm or heading for burn out.
Much of the stress felt by executives is the pressure of managing some very diverse personalities and the frustration that comes from difficult working relationships with subordinates and superiors alike. Add to this the constant strain of some personal relationships, and you begin to see how situations can spiral out of control.
One of the presuppositions of NLP is that the meaning of any communication is the response you get. You provide one half of any communication you have. Even if you say nothing you are still communicating something.
Knowledge of NLP means that you know that, even during a tricky conversation when the going is getting tough, the onus is on you to use your skills and find the way to build a bridge, connect with the other person and establish the common ground that will take you forward.
The techniques of effective communication have a dramatic effect and yet are very simple to learn and apply with a little awareness and practice.
Rapport building is the catch all key to effective communication. It is a simple idea and yet in mastering it’s techniques you will find that you become amazingly expert in the art of listening and observation.
The value of recognising the subtle differences in language patterns and physical signals will enable you to build highly effective relationships with others. You will also discover benefits in your life that take place far beyond the boardroom or the sales force briefing.
One to one coaching has many benefits, the most obvious being the speed at which progress can be made. Coaching is cost effective and gets results. In the same way that an elite athlete would be seen as being fool hardy to attempt to produce a peak performance with only his inner resources to sustain him, it is now considered good practice for any man or woman in a position of considerable responsibility and recognisable pressure to call upon the services of a professional Executive or personal performance Life coach.
During the coaching process you will discover how your beliefs and behaviours shape your attitudes and decision making. If any of these beliefs are limiting you in any way, the coaching process will highlight these areas. You will be able to challenge any beliefs which are proving unhelpful or holding you back in any area of your life. You will be introduced to new strategies for change, goal setting and excellence and will be given the tools to work more effectively and with more enthusiasm and energy.
Executive coaching gives you the insights and strategies you need to perform at your absolute best. Good coaches challenge the perceptions of their clients so that the client can enjoy the benefits of attaining life changing goals and find ways to conquer fear and unlock potential.
Naturally, along with confidentiality, the position of a coach is to be scrupulously objective and give the executive the sounding board and the space that they need to execute their duties with wisdom, creativity and excellence.
Coaching support provides professional impartial feedback. Any executive dealing with a number of ‘pressure cooker’ situations in their working day will recognise the sense of clarity and positive stress relieving impact of regular one to one coaching sessions.
Being able to access the professional skill of an NLP practitioner provides a framework for managing yourself, your career and your personal needs. Confident, skilled communicators are highly effective people. By preserving and developing your personal goals you gain a sense of real achievement and happiness. In doing this you make yourself a highly effective, highly sought after and highly paid executive.
It gives you the edge that makes all the difference.
