In NLP Meta Programs are a process by which one sorts through multiple generalisations simultaneously. As such, Meta Programs control how and when a person will engage in any set of strategies in a given context. Here are key take aways for you:
- Use NLP Meta Programs to understand others and yourself. As a result, NLP Meta programs helps you understand how people sort and make sense of the world. They also help you understand your own values, beliefs and behaviours.
- Remember that people use a blend of NLP Meta Programs. In addition, it’s not this or that, it’s a spectrum of possibilities. NLP Meta Programs are a tool for understanding how and what people behave in which way and shich sense and adapting your own behaviours to improve communication. They aren’t a tool for stereo-typing or pigeon-holing. Remember that the outcome of NLP Meta Programs are different per happening, different per person and even different per place.
- Change your own limiting NLP Meta Programs. Last but not least, if you have a way of processing the world that is limiting your success, find a way to consciously adapt it. Identifying your own meta-programs you use is a start. Once you have awareness, you can see how this shows up and what you have to change to use it for the better than you were before.
- Learn to use the this information by Heart. Finally, it is not important to know all the technical names. Therefore learn to use this information by heart. It is much better to be a good coach than showing-off how good you are in all the technical terms.
As a result, I think knowing how people work, behave and react, helps bridge gaps in communication and performance. It can also lead you to better self-understanding and the better you know yourself, the better you can drive yourself and the world around you.
