Four Pillars of Neurolinguistic Programming
The Four Pillars of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) are: Outcome orientation , Sensory Acuity, Rapport, Behavioural Flexibility. Outcome Thinking: This is about knowing what you want rather than what you don’t want. It helps you remove negative thoughts and to focus on desired goals instead. The more clearly we know what we want, the more likely we are to get it.
Sensory Acuity in Neurolinguistic Programming
Sensory acuity is the ability to perceive and experience behaviours through the lens of our five senses. Every human have their individual set of physiological distinctions for different experiences and emotions. According to NLP, there is no universal language implied in body movement. Rapport in Neurolinguistic Programming
In Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), rapport is the first essential component of real communication. It is one of the most important features or characteristics of unconscious human interaction. Rapport is the feeling of being at ease and in tune with someone. The Four R's to create rapport are: Respect, Reassurance, Recognition, Responsibility. NLP rapport is the ability to relate to others in a way that creates trust and understanding. Successful interactions depend largely on our ability to establish and maintain rapport.
If you emphasize the differences between yourself and another person, you will find it hard to establish rapport. By emphasizing commonalities, resistance and antagonism will generally disappear and cooperation will improve.
Behavioural Flexibility in Neurolinguistic Programming
In Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), the law of requisite variety, from systems theory, indicates that a person with the most flexibility will have more choices and therefore have the most influence in any system. Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) presupposes that every one of us is responsible for our own life. We may not be able to control external events we are capable of controlling our reactions and response to those events.
By aiming to increase your choices, you are expanding your map of reality. The more your choices, the more influence you have over yourself and others. Greater choices come from being able to change your perceptual position. The three main perceptual positions in NLP are: Associated to self: Look at a situation form your point of view Associated to other: Taking the other person’s frame of reference, Associated to the observer or witness: Taking the meta or objective perspective. To change unwanted behaviours, start by eliciting the highest positive intention which drives that behaviour, then seek to satisfy that intention through more appropriate means.
Humans act according to their current level of awareness.
