  • What are Your Limits?
    limit of patience with a spouse or child or friend how would that make your life easier and sweeter and more harmonious And also theirs Perhaps it s a limit of fear a point you haven t gone beyond at work or an experience that looked appealing but something had stopped you while others just went right on past you and didn t think about it Or maybe it s a mental thing I can t learn languages I m no good at gardening I can t dance I ve got two left feet Hey a note to the person with two left feet a guy just climbed the world s highest mountain Mount Everest and he didn t have any feet at all He did it on artificlal legs So there Go dance You were easy Seriously here s the deal Limits is another word for what my wife Vikki calls boundaries she works as a counselor And boundaries have interesting characteristics There are sharp boundaries like between countries a man made border with guards and gates and passports But the interesting thing about human inner boundaries is that most of them don t have sharp edges They re more like the boundary between the land and the sea There s a large area in between called the shore which is wet sometimes and dry sometimes depending on the tides Our internal ideas of limits are like that shore And the tide lines are set in our minds And they can be changed if we want I ll show you how and you can try it and see for yourself if you like it Usually these boundaries have been with us forever Check it out yourself go inside your own mind and pick a boundary of your own Some limit you ve been aware of a limit to your behavior your ambition or your dreams Got it Good Now look back How long has that boundary been there Probably a long time Most of our personal limits have been part of our experience for so long we don t even question them anymore We just think they are a part of our reality And they re mostly not Not real that is One exception if the limit you chose was the result of a traumatic experience that you clearly remember it s the wrong kind of personal limit to pick we ll get to that later Or you can heal your own trauma by seeing an NLP Practitioner or by reading a book and fixing yourself if you want to try that email me and I ll tell you which book to get Okay Go back to the limit on yourself that you chose for this example Only this time don t just accept the statement of the limit at face value You ve heard it or seen it or felt it so often that you don t really even examine it anymore In a minute I ll show

    Recruitment and Selection Resources Presenting Yourself With Impact at Work The Book Books And Resources Meet Us What People Say Contact Us Iridium Blog Gorillas in the Mist 5th Dec 2012 As some of you know we recently enjoyed a fantastic trip to Rwanda This included two days tracking mountain gorillas in the Volcanoes National Park where Diane Fosse did her pioneering research which was the inspiration for the film Gorillas in the Mist The trek to reach the gorillas started at 7am when we assembled at the base of the Volcanoes to be allocated our group for the day Only 80 permits are issued per day and you are allowed a maximum of one hour with one of the ten habituated groups of Gorillas Each group has between 10 and 20 members Depending on which group you are allocated it can take between 1 and 3 hours of quite strenuous trekking before your first encounter Upon reaching our assigned family we were immediately struck by how they simply accepted us and how human they seemed In particular their facial expressions and deep brown eyes seemed to quickly convey their innermost thoughts and feelings It reminded us of just how much we use facial expressions to quickly read the intentions of others Research confirms this and there is profound agreement among academics that the face along with the voice body posture and hand gestures forecast to outside observers what people will do Paul Ekman s classic research showed that around the world people use the same expressions for communicating a range of thoughts and emotions including joy approval disgust worry etc His work has since expanded into looking at how we indicate these thoughts and emotions often unwittingly in micro movements that can be detected if you heighten your awareness

  • Bunch of Tweets - Amygdala hijacks feed Twitter
    have moments when we are overwhelmed by anger and emotion and it would seem that social channel Twitter is providing the perfect platform to vent feelings It only takes second to send a tweet But sharing flashes of anger with thousands of followers can have serious consequences It s mind boggling how much damage can be done in a few seconds in the heat of the moment Those of us in positions of power need to be aware that Twitter has become the new home of amygdala hijacks periods of intense emotion that may make the most level headed professionals temporarily lose the power of rational thought and say or do something they later regret The science behind amygdala hijacks Now for the science An amygdala hijack starts with a sensation which is routed a part of the brain called the thalamus which acts like an air traffic controller to keep signals moving Typically the thalamus directs an impulse or signal through the thinking part of the brain the grey matter of the cerebral cortex That signal is then sent to an area of the brain called the amygdala where a flood of peptides and hormones are released to create emotion and action But if someone is experiencing intense anger the thalamus will treat the signal as a potential threat and therefore bypass the cortex The signal then goes straight to the amygdala which generates a reflex emotional reaction using its limited number of stored responses Prior to his outburst Cole was being teed up for England captaincy to mark his 100th appearance for the Three Lions Will he still be considered as right for the job Like all potential leaders Cole will need to keep his emotions in check in order gain the respect required to progress to the

  • Making Change Stick- The Masai and Logical Levels
    and former way of life Research by Gregory Bateson and Robert Dilts suggests that we have a hierarchy in the way we think about things They identified six logical levels of thought each level providing different information and building on the level below The Six Logical Levels 6 Purpose The big picture for our life or our organisation 5 Identity Who are you as an individual or organisation What role do you play to achieve your purpose How do you think of yourself as a person organisation eg I am a successful person 4 Beliefs and Values Why do you do something What do you believe in or value 3 Capabilities How do you go about doing things As an individual or organisation what are your capabilities skills strategies or action plans 2 Behaviours What are your typical behaviours The things that others see you doing and saying 1 Environment Where when and with whom do you display your behaviours What are the external influences on you An Example Many of us have been on a time management training programme So in theory most of us have the capabilities needed for good time management We also know what behaviours help and we know how to organise our environment to enhance our use of time So how is it that one of the main areas that people tell us they would like to improve upon is time management From the logical levels model we can see that most of us only made changes at the bottom three levels in regards to time management If for example we don t believe that utilising a rigorous diary system will work or we value spontaneity over punctuality or our identity is bound up in being open and accessible to people then because we haven t made any changes at the higher levels it is unlikely that after the initial rush of good intentions the principles of time management will be embedded Sustainable Change Making a change at a lower level eg environment may but not necessarily affect an upper level However a change at an upper level eg belief will have a distinct impact on the levels below it as illustrated in the above example You may remember previous newsletters that dealt with the fact that beliefs are only beliefs and so can be changed Using Logical Levels to Explain Understand Change The above leads to a number of interesting explanations discoveries 1 Organisational change Have you ever been involved in change within an organisation What are some of the more common change activities How about a new organisation chart Or maybe change to the physical layout of the offices This is change at the level of environment Do you think it will be long lasting Only if the change is in alignment with the higher levels Or maybe staff are told to perform in a different way behaviour without receiving the necessary training capability strategy Unfortunately this happens far too often When money
