Know the Purpose for Creating Change

One of the most important things you need to identify when creating change is “For what purpose”. Too often we hear clients saying “I need to change X, Y, Z” or complaining to us that for years they have been trying to improve their ability to do X, Y, Z but failed. Yet, when we probed, they have no clear idea of the purpose for making such a change. Knowing the purpose for creating change is a bit like going on an expedition with clear direction in mind. There might be many paths that will lead you there and you … Continue reading Know the Purpose for Creating Change

A Theory of Everything: An Integral Vision for Business, Politics, Science and Spirituality

I enjoy having a theory that covers everything, at least at a broad 50,000ft view, and one which also makes some sense right down to the microcosms that we live with. It is efficient to have a unifying theory, but it also makes sense. Having already studied Spiral Dynamics which for me makes sense of all the different theories of human behaviour, T.O.E. provides a wider view. Ken Wilber explains in a lot of detail how the All Quadrants, All Levels and eventually All Lines works as a model and it makes a lot of sense. He also describes many … Continue reading A Theory of Everything: An Integral Vision for Business, Politics, Science and Spirituality

HR view of NLP

When HR manager Donna Alder had to oversee the outplacement of 700 people at healthcare company GlaxoSmithKline on Merseyside, she drew on the communication tools she had acquired from a course in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).  “I wanted to make sure that people could leave the site with their heads held high,” she says. “I ran group and one-to-one workshops covering subjects such as choosing attitude. I drew on the NLP philosophy that ‘change happens every second of the day’.

Alder is among a growing number of HR professionals to get involved with NLP – a psychological approach that claims to ‘re-pattern’ individuals to achieve anything, Continue reading “HR view of NLP”
