With all hands on deck an organisation could within six to eighteen months quite easily set up an agile workforce. Easy is not a word that comes up for most, I know but from an expertise point of view which is where I am sitting, this is what I do for organisations.
Extremely important is the decision that this Program supersedes all other initiatives which have to recede into the background, at least for the first six months. As people down the line, in a top-down approach begin to receive tools that make them effective, success becomes a drug.
We are bound to find employees in the mix who resist change and don’t want a part of it. Well, I have found that most often, it is because they fear being given advice. In my experience, the most resistant people turnaround as NLP tools share structure and context not content.
Application of tools learnt are contextualised by employees who work in the department. Rich discussions ensue and the NLP Master Trainer becomes but a mere facilitator. The objective to leave coaches behind as the workforce gains success momentum is achieved within a mere few months.
This is how coaching infrastructures are established at each level of the organisation. As the hierarchy gathers strength in speaking a common language, employees begin to take things less personally, applying the same tool for resolving conflict as the one needed to write a conducive client proposal.
Unless experienced, this is way beyond a decision maker’s imagination. It is too good to be true. In reality, it happens often to those who see through NLP-linked resources whether it be the tools or highly-resourceful trainer.
Give it a go if you have not experienced this. Pick up a book, do some research or speak to us to understand the depth and breadth of what is possible. The infinite possibilities are worth aspiring towards. It takes a different mind to walk a different direction to the masses.
