Transform Communication – Using the Power of NLP

Tuesday 22nd September 2015 | 14:00 – 16:00 hrs

This workshop will provide insight into powerful Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques and will teach you how to create opportunity and enhance relationships by;

•Developing positive connections with people around you
•Creating an environment where people feel heard, understood and supported
•Learning how to disagree agreeably by removing barriers that prevent a comfortable space for difficult conversations

“Neuro Linguistic Programming began with the study of excellent communicators. What is the difference that makes the difference in feeling comfortable and acknowledged by someone, even if they are disagreeing with what you say? The answer is rapport – a foundation stone of NLP, and the most important process in any communication. Rapport is the ability to see each other’s point of view (not necessarily to agree with it), to be on the same wavelength and to appreciate each other’s feelings”

This workshop will be delivered by Lighthouse, an organisation dedicated to transformational change.
