The Secret Life of Words 
Detecting the metaprograms in people’s stories 
to guide the coach, facilitator or individual with Conversational Change

with Lynne Cooper

Tuesday 12th February 2019 

In this practical session we will explore what happens when you increase your attention on how people think, rather than what they think.  Specifically, we will practise pattern spotting  - listening out for certain metaprograms when working with others.  We’ll then explore how to bring these patterns in to the conversation when working with others.  There is a focus on coaching but the learning will be applicable to other contexts too. 

You will:

  • Learn to detect some key motivational patterns in your coachees, quickly and easily

  • Find out more about your own patterns and their impact on your coaching

  • Practise directing your attention beyond another’s narrative 

  • Explore how to work with patterns in coaching and other one-to-one work

Suitable for coaches, facilitators, trainers, consultants, managers, counsellors and those with a curious mind, this session combines NLP with a highly pragmatic application. Don’t miss the chance to add to your learning and have a bit of fun along the way!
