"Elevate Your Anchoring Skills" 1-day NLP Workshop
Sun, 8/25 w/Jonathan Altfeld
Ivan Pavlov studied Classical Conditioning, and made dogs salivate on command (ringing a bell).
B.F. Skinner studied Operant Conditioning and made rats and pigeons navigate mazes for food. Skinner added in reinforcing rewards, and punishments.
NLP took these skills to a far more refined behavioral level, through Anchoring, and with NLP anchoring, we put operant conditioning on steroids, and now... we can more effectively influence ourselves and others. We're way beyond salivating to a bell, and navigating mazes.
Using anchoring, you can condition (and/or recondition) your own behavior, and those of others, to do all manner of things:
* Become happier at will!
* Make more of the right sales for the right reasons
* Lift people up more easily and consistently
* Cause others to want to spend more time around you
* Train other people to join your cause or follow your lead
* Tilt people in one direction or another
* Rewire negative responses to bad memories or other triggers, towards positive responses
* Neutralize responses to trauma/PTSD: EMDR is a method
of trauma neutralization that NLP's co-founder John Grinder has implied could be based on NLP: Francine Shapiro worked as an admin assistant in John Grinder's office until 1 year before her EMDR book came out, and asked John shortly before she quit, "How can you help someone cure trauma or PTSD?").
* Revive a stale relationship
* Change eating habits: rewire old urges to healthier choices
* Learn to look forward to things by choice
* Change your emotional responses to annoying tasks
* Turn fear into power, embarrassment into confidence, annoyance into tolerance, and hundreds of other emotional-shift possibilities
* And more...
Just like Calibration Skills... Anchoring Skills are one of those litmus tests that leads to only one conclusion: MANY people trained in NLP don't seem to know how or where to anchor themselves or others. MANY people never got sufficient training to make anchoring work powerfully.
And when it's done right, it causes a WOW response. It's one of those skills that most students rarely reach a sufficient level of satisfaction with.
During Jonathan's public speaking course, he covers "spatial anchoring" in depth. It never ceases to amaze him when so many people who say they've taken Practitioner or Master Practitioner courses can't seem to get anchoring to work powerfully.
Anchoring, simply, is the artful connecting of stimulus with response.
Anchoring well, powerfully and effectively, requires the blending of:
* Multiple senses (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory, & gustatory). The more the better.
* Precision. If you're not precise, then the association between stimulus and response is mediocre at best. So few NLP trainees can do anchoring well. They never learned how to be precise.
* Timing. You need to develop really good timing. Many NLP TRAINERS that have come to my courses never developed good timing, for how and when to apply the stimulus, and for how long, and when to remove that stimulus.
When you master these factors, NLP truly comes to life. Anchoring then becomes like having dramatic shortcuts to immediate influence, best used for easily helping yourself and others.
When you master anchoring, no longer is it acceptable to listen to others telling you what they can't do, or how they're just "stuck" with some result and that they're helpless. Because you'll know from experience that you can help condition more empowered results in yourself AND others.
When they tell you they can't do anything about their problem, you can go and elicit a time in their lives when they felt powerful and creative. It could have occurred only for a total of one hour in their lives, 10 years ago, and you can still go back, elicit that memory, amp up their sense of what it was like, and anchor it. Then keep that emotion firing, while you ask them about their current problem. And over the next week, every time you ask them about the problem, fire off the resourceful anchor.
Here's one final bonus for existing NLP trainees out there... one of the unique anchoring distinctions Jonathan Altfeld brings to his courses is... he can show you how to create anchors that only need to be set ONCE, and then -- every time you fire those anchors, they become SELF-STRENGTHENING. The old approaches to anchoring required anchors be "re-set" periodically to keep them working. Not anymore, not the way you'll experience it on Sunday!
It may sound or seem like a cliche, but life really will never be the same for you... after you've mastered anchoring! Join us in NYC on Sunday, August 25!
