Sleight of Mouth is a persuasion skill, a vehicle for conversationally changing beliefs. It is a system of 14 different patterns of response to a stated belief. A system that, once mastered, can allow you to always have a response that will effectively elucidate your position and help you to persuade rather than be persuaded. Simply put, it will help you win any argument, be verbally powerful and powerfully verbal. Our time allowing we will cover 2 - 3 patterns.
Sleight of Mouth was devised by Robert Dilts who modeled the argument and persuasion skills of Richard Bandler (the co-founder of Neuro-linguistic programming). The name "Sleight of Mouth" builds off the phrase "Sleight of Hand" which refers to a magician's skills in making things happen which appear impossible.
Through reframing, Sleight of mouth patterns help people overcome limiting beliefs, open up to new ideas and be able to find a new "spin" or "point of view." In persuasion, whether in therapy, sales or personal interaction it's vital to help people open up to what you are saying.
