12 Mindset Tips

Each of the following Twelve Mindset Tips for Improved Performance will help you to better communicate and influence. These 12 tips come from NLP presuppositions – basic assumptions that NLP is built on. Check back often, we’ll be adding the tips every week or so until all twelve are listed.

 

The twelve tips are:

  1. Respect for the other person’s model of the world.
  2. Behavior and change are to be evaluated in terms of context and ecology.
  3. Resistance in a client is a sign of lack of rapport. There are no resistant clients, only inflexible communicators.
  4. People are not their behaviors.
  5. Everyone is doing the best they can with the resources they have available.
  6. Calibrate on behavior. The most important information available about a person is their behavior.
  7. The map is not the territory. The words we use are not the event or the item they represent.
  8. People have all the resources they need to succeed and to achieve their desired outcomes.
  9. There is no failure only feedback.
  10. The meaning of communication is the response you get.
  11. The Law of Requisite Variety: The person with the most flexibility of behavior will control the system.
  12. All procedures should be designed to increase choice.
