What the majority of people who are aware of NLP struggle with is the practical application of NLP to their own life contexts. So, we‘ve put together an informative article to assist the understanding of how NLP can be immediately incorporated into everyday life, we answer the question, “What can NLP do for me?”
NLP in Business
The challenges facing large and small, public and private sector businesses today are many and varied. The complexities of internal operation and the pressures of an external economic environment often mask the simple solution to business success. Excellent companies and excellent business people share a common skill, excellent communication.
A business that understands how to communicate with its staff and its customers is a successful business and it’s the one thing that seems to be neglected and that most businesses get wrong. The learning embroidered within NLP presents a rich picture of how individuals and organisations alike can shift their thinking to become masters of communication and enhance their performance and therefore their success and profitability.
NLP thinking can be employed across every area of business activity. Here are some compelling examples:
Sales – Using NLP within the sales process makes it easy for customers to buy. No hard sell, just great customer relationships that will endure. It doesn’t matter if you sell face to face or over the telephone, the NLP sales process works.
Staff/Management relationships – If you want to engage and receive the support and commitment of your workforce, communication is the key.
Presentation Skills – Make presentations and pitches engaging, full of charisma and compelling for every member of the audience. More importantly, deliver them with confidence and self-belief.
Communication – For yourself and your colleagues. Shift the culture of your business.
Recruitment – Get the right person into the right job, every time.
Building Teams – Build teams that share the same values with diversity of skills to offer a rich and productive group.
Negotiating and Influencing – Communication is the key.
A business succeeds and fails on the strength of its people. You are your business, so it is crucial that you and your team are able to produce optimum performance, 100% of the time. The recipe for performing well combines a number of ingredients. Confidence, self-belief, clarity of thought, focus, direction, vision, alignment and congruence, energy, positivity and good health are all necessary components in creating excellence. The new thinking within NLP provides all of these essential ingredients. Firstly, create excellence for yourself, then you can assist your teams to create the same excellence, with aligned purpose and values, to generate a feast of abundance and prosperity for all.
