									Hypnosis, NLP and Communication - The Key to Strong Leadership
Effective communication is essential in the business world.
Presentations, meetings and negotiations are key. A good leader must be a
good and clear communicator. Often times those who communicate well rise
to the top, while those who are more uncertain remain behind. There are
many methods available today to improve communication for those to whom
it does not come naturally. Hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming
(NLP) work to improve communication skills by tapping into the
unconscious and 'reprogramming' the mind to focus on positive thoughts.
An ineffective communicator is one who over thinks language, presentation
and message. By focusing strongly on what is coming next, the ineffective
communicator often stumbles on what he/she is saying in the present. This
leads to misunderstandings and an unsuccessful presentation or pitch.
Nervousness, stress and uncertainty are not traits that a leader
typically portrays and thus, the ineffective communicator is out of the
running. By being so focused on themselves, the ineffective communicator
shuts out the audience and is often unaware of their reactions.
Hypnosis and NLP are often portrayed on TV as gimmick methods that trick
people into false beliefs, but in actuality they are effective tools that
can restructure thought processes in the mind. This occurs through the
process of somatic suggestions, that is, suggestions made to the patient
while they are in a hypnotic state. These suggestions, when dealing with
communication, focus on confidence, being aware of and reading reactions,
and speaking clearly and focused. The brain will not take in suggestions
that are over the top or against a person's beliefs.
Working with NLP can also provide a unique skill set to add to your
listening skills, an important part of communicating. Through NLP, the
ability to remain calm and focused applies to other stressful situations
as well, not just in speaking situations. In heated negotiations, somatic
skills can provide tools to remain cool and assertive. The body language
the other parties exude becomes easier to read and understand, as you
become more aware of your own.
Understanding communication and how to do so effectively are highly
regarded skills in most industries. Through NLP and hypnosis one can
build an awareness of one's own communication skills and abilities while
gaining an understanding of others. Often a leadership programme using
NLP and hypnosis can be highly effective when combined with communication
courses on presentations and negotiation skills. Thus, both skill sets
can be incorporated.
It is essential that one find a licensed hypnotherapist and NLP-
practitioner to guarantee the quality of the programme. A listing on the
General Hypnotherapy Register in the UK is a good place to start or
naturally you can go to www.mind-works.co.uk for further details on how
to improve your communication.
