Much to her surprise as Sylvia shared NLP tools, leaders realised they needed help. Most worried and shied away from coaching in the beginning as they were concerned with having to divulge private and personal information.
However, when informed that these self-management tools comprised a toolbox of facilitated processes like visualising and meditating, they were put at ease. In so many instances, leaders shared at the end of sessions how much they looked forward to the next one.
People like Sylvia who had achieved NLP mastery were able to use this as a fundamental transformation pillar, then add unique talents and expertise to the brew. This produced magic. The trick was to stay out of “content of an experience” which was noisy and only served to distract from the issue at hand.
Rather, NLP worked through the context of a person’s experience. People knew what needed to be changed and all they needed was a process and a facilitator to guide them. They then made the necessary changes. For instance, Sylvia had a client who was a senior leader. His hands would involuntarily shake as he presented at the lectern.
In a few processes he eradicated this and couldn’t imagine he had lived with that behaviour all his life. In fact that also led to other wonderful side effects like restful sleep at night and a feeling of relaxation, something he had not experienced in a long time.
Hard to believe and feeling incredulous at the results he had achieved, this was the door that opened him to attending an NLP Program. As with many other cases Sylvia had worked with, Rapid Success Coaching took clients beyond the boundaries of their mind. That is how change occurred. It had to be experienced to be believed.
In another example, a leader knew he had control issues that had been a family pattern for generations. He found it hard to make changes towards being a more democratic leader. He was right! Change through the conscious mind was hard work. It took a long time and was not permanent. So why even try?
Rapid Success Coaching was exactly what leaders and managers needed to get rid of their emotional behaviour patterns fast. Trevor, HR Director in the organisation was in. He needed to do a bit more research. He would propose a Culture Alignment project starting with the Senior Leadership team. He would need approval from the Board.
It was important to cascade this down the line in small bite-sized pieces so employees could chew on it, assimilate then apply what they had learnt.
The word simplicity came to mind!
