Working with NLP in Coaching
Coaching is probably the one of the oldest arrangements between individuals. An arrangement where an individual, called coach, who is superior (i.e. has more expertise) in a set of skills, teaches those skills to another individual (or group of individuals), called trainee/s.
These skills vary from hard skills like operating tools, computer programming etc., to soft skills like communication skills, time-management skills etc. What does not vary however is the need of effective coaching methodology so that it leaves a positive impact on the productivity of the trainee/s. And that’s exactly what inculcating NLP in coaching accomplishes.
With the amalgamation of the principles of NLP in coaching, the coach is easily able to evaluate an individual’s thinking and behavioural pattern. NLP in coaching then methodically introduces Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques to strengthen the positive aspects and eradicate the negative characteristics.
Integrating NLP in Coaching
Dipping into the world of Neuro Linguistic Programming and assimilating NLP in coaching is the best way to build an effective, inspiring and creative coaching platform. With NLP in coaching, the coach or the trainer, gains a clear insight of the how the conscious and unconscious mind of the trainee behave. The coach then uses this analysis to subsequently modify the coaching methodology/approach in order to build the rapport with the audience. Once that’s done, the coach uses the matching, mirroring and pacing techniques of NLP in coaching to successfully driving the coaching agenda.
Coaching in NLP and it’s FOUR Pillars
NLP is supported by four pillars. These are, rapport, sensory acuity, flexibility and outcome thinking. And these very same pillars support NLP in coaching.
Here are the four pillars of NLP and how they support NLP in coaching:
Using NLP in coaching, be it formal or informal coaching, helps to create a shared level of understanding between the trainee and the coach, that we call by the name of trust or rapport.
A coach is expected to have higher levels of intuition to understand the trainees.
Irrespective of a coach rationally using i.e. consciously paying attention to sensory awareness or working intuitively, NLP in coaching helps to keep in check their assumptions with the participants and thereby preventing misjudgements.
Key to be good in coaching is to be flexible. At Transhuman consulting by using NLP in coaching, the coach achieves this behavioural flexibility that helps him/her to discover how to use a different approach, when their current methodology stops producing desired results.
Outcome drives the coaching world. For there is no use of hours spent on coaching if there is no outcome, or worse, if the outcome is same.
Increasing the focus on outcomes, instead of being stuck on the negative or “status-quo” is the major benefit of using NLP in coaching.
NLP in coaching is the most powerful tool that a coach can use to take their skills to a whole new level, or risk losing the trust of their clientele.
