At 2minds we offer a very unique experience. We tailor our coaching programmes to your needs and combine the powerful tools of coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to give you the performance results and outcome you desire
Coaching is about getting the very best out of you and enabling you to make decisions that will improve your life. It is about unlocking your potential for success in all areas of your life. Coaching identifies the things you would like to change, where you would like to be in the future, and then focuses and support you to take action. The results can be very powerful and the coach encourages you to always to thriving towards your goals, hopes and dreams.
Coaches are hired for very many different and diverse reasons, for example: to climb the career ladder faster; to feel more fulfilled at work; to improve relationships with family and partners; to learn parenting skills that benefit both the child and parent; have a healthier body; be more confident; to gain a spiritual meaning to life, or a desire to ‘get sorted’.
Coaching with 2minds
A developmental ongoing interaction between two people, the Coach and the Client which assists the Client to develop his/her capabilities, achieve his/her goals and objectives and produce successful results.
The NLP Coach facilitates change through verbal and non –verbal communication (questions, reflections, explanations, tasks , guiding focus, exercises etc). The NLP Coach promotes and supports his/her clients’ growth, learning, professional development, and personal bench marks.
The NLP Coach creates and facilitates change, elicits, selects, trains, asks meaningful questions, motivates, creates insight, explains, tasks , evokes, challenges, stimulates, supports and encourages clients self -expression.
In NLP Coaching, the Coach is going to work with the client to discover and utilise their own most productive strategies, values and other modalities already at his disposal but which he is not utilising to the most of his benefit. The focus is on the client achieving his goals and objectives.
In NLP Coaching, we don’t offer advice as to what to do – we Coach the client HOW to utilise his own capabilities and already present strategies, values etc. By discovering and understanding the client’s intrinsic abilities, the Coach can assist in maximising those abilities and so to make possible for the client to take actions necessary to achieve his/her desired results. NLP Coaching concentrates on the Client implementing the best strategies to achieve the desired goals and objectives.
3 Core areas of NLP coaching
Goals – Values – Beliefs
Life is a series of small decisions each one seems inconsequential yet they add up.
Opposite to goal setting is problem solving – focus on what is wrong. NLP coaching ensures that the focus is on clarity of the goal and how it will be achieved along with maintaining this focus on achievement not on what could go wrong.
All goals are generated by values.
You need to respect the value that generates the goal e.g. man wants to show love to his family and works long hours to give them all they want … all are unhappy as he is never home.
Once we find the core value behind the goal we will ensure that the actions needed will help generate the goal being achieved through the need to find out how the client can live and respect the value towards the goal. Value and goal alignment is critical and with NLP techniques we ensure this is the case.
Beliefs – Whether we believe we can or we cant … We are right !
We focus on creating belief that the goal will be achieved. Positive thinking is very powerful and at 2minds, we help the client remove any limiting beliefs that would potentially jeopardise the success. Where our clients doubt a successful outcome then this is likely to be exactly what they will achieve. NLP coaching will remove any thought and behavioural strategies that we run in our mind that provide any doubt or belief through a number of tools and techniques.
A skilled NLP Master coaches will identify any limiting beliefs that the client may have even if they don’t know they have it. When we ask a client what stops them achieving their goals then often this will be a limiting belief. Such as …
e.g. No pain no gain, I need money to be happy, Success takes a long time, I need to be busy to enjoy what I am doing.
