Personal greetings from Sonya and Mark

Greetings to you all! We just can’t believe how fast this year has gone. It has been a most challenging and wonderful year for us, many lessons learned, skills developed and insight gained and we hope this has been a rewarding year for you as well.

We have just finished delivering 8 days NLP Foundations training, the last one for the year in Brisbane. We are so excited that the feedback from students regarding our newly developed program and special skill development workbook has been a great success.

This program has been rated with a near 100% satisfaction and noticeable increase in student capabilities. We look forward to see the follow up survey to measure the level of learning retention and capability development for this new program.
As we now take a little breather and start preparing for next year, we are working on a few patterns of our own and hope to release it for testing in the wider NLP Community soon. We are also working on implementing a few Modelling projects including modelling Aboriginal elders.

We do hope you will enjoy this last issue of our newsletter for 2010 and we wish you a very Happy Christmas and New Year! We look forward to share our passion with you in 2011!

Congratulations to Scott Thompson!

We are over the moon about one of our students, Scott Thompson, who has received a High Pass for his practitioner assessment, in both in practical and written assessment. We do not give out a High Pass grade very easily. The High Pass grade is really gained through diligent practice and personal integration on the part of Scott. Scott is currently a Change and Service Delivery Improvement Manager for the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation in the Queensland Government.

Successful Living Tips

Do Opposites Attract?

By Mark Spencer, ITA NLP Trainer, Educator, Coach

“we are twice as likely to be attracted to someone when we agree on six out of 10 issues than we are with someone who we only agree with on three out of 10 issues” Psychologist Donn Byrne
“What most people call falling in love is really falling in pattern… Relationships are about getting our own needs met, often on an unconscious basis. In other words, we try to find someone who is complementary to us and can help us learn, heal, and grow.” Paul Cutright
What do I think? Rapport building is not Opposite or Sameness. It would be too general to say that Rapport is doing the opposite or the same and that atrraction is related to either. They are different aspects of the relationship in question….Read More

Bully or Victim? What you can do

What NLP Tools Can You Use?
Many of us have had unpleasant experiences when we were younger, and some of these experiences are still with us, and some have become the insignificant distant memories. In this article, we look at what some of the external advice is saying (two opinions) and then discuss some of the NLP Tools that you can use: Synaesthesia and Anchors, Complex Equivalences, Setting Your Own Emotions Right, Understanding the Impact of Cybernetic Loops, Diversion and other resources including links to websites with further help such as: Life After Adult Bullying.<a href="Read more

The old ‘only using 10% of your brain’ myth

By Mark Spencer, ITA NLP Trainer, Educator, Coach
We often hear and have heard it misquoted – you’re only using 10% of your brain and how would you like to use the other 90 percent? But what do they mean by this; was this the real quote? Did Einstein say any of this and was he really quoted to have said that we only use 10% of our brain? The short answer is that the 10% is largely a misused figure and there are many explanations for the figure. For instance, 10% of what we call ‘the brain’ consist of neurons – there are other cells….

In the garden of choices

By Sonya Yeh Spencer, ITA NLP Trainer, Educator, Coach
Beneath the surface there is something not right in the patch and I am glad that I have notice the signs early before things get worse. Are you noticing the signs in your business, relationships or within you? If you are noticing signs that say “all is not as good as you thought”, what do you want to do about it? What are your choices? Start anew, what would you like to do differently?
One of the most powerful things that NLP has offered me is the power of ‘Choice’ and the power to ‘Create’. It is like having a clean canvas to paint, new pages to write, bare land to cultivate….. Read more
