We frame this series of podcasts as mini-modeling sessions – an NLP term for extracting the essense of someone’s excellence, and creating a model or a guidance towards achieving similar results in yourself, and teaching it to others.
When we started these freely available podcasts with a non-profit group in mind, it might have seemed like a crazy idea to most people. Today, we are happy to see that our podcasts are being downloaded all around the World – Europe, China, India, USA, Iraq, Azerbaijan, and many others.
Now, we are taking another step that might seem like a crazy idea today, but – who knows what the future holds – we are moving towards creating an open-source platform for education. Open source in personal growth is a radical paradigm shift. People say, you want to be different. We say, it’s not enough – let’s contribute to make a difference. Not only you will experience personal change – you will participate in creating it, and transform yourself in the process. This means freely available content, created not just by us, but by you! This means, you get to find and work together with peers all across the globe doing the work you love, get recognized for your contribution, and see the world change in a meaningful way.
To make this dream come true, we need your help to seed this project. We are inviting skilled professionals who want to contribute their time into creating the open source collaboration platform for education. If you have skills in one or more of the following areas:
Translators from English to other languages
Anyone with original AND cutting-edge work on personal growth
Then please, contact us at email@example.com or through the web form, or just leave a comment in this podcast, and we’ll take it from there. This project can only succeed with your help. Become a Partner in Change, and let’s contribute to make a difference.
In this issue, we explore how the model of Adaptive Intelligencies melds with concepts and techniques of NLP, and how both models enrich each other when used in combination.
We took a number of well-known NLP concepts and structured our conversation around those – how they can be used, or how they are enhanced by, the levels of intelligencies, the Clare Graves model of Bio-Psycho-Social System of Human Development. The NLP concepts we touched in this manner are:
Rapport and calibration: how to calibrate various levels, and build rapport with the person at a certain level
Positional perspectives – ability and willinness to do it at different levels, and number of distinctions people can make
Somatics, body movements and postures at different levels of intelligencies
How the language changes with each level
Milton model – first appears in Purple and continues into Red
Meta-model – comes in at Blue (to understand the details of the rules), and really develop in Orange, where precision is important
SOM comes up in Green, reframing perspectives
From “digital” to “analog” system
Family structures, relationships
Space and architecture
Internal – External; lust for power – surrender to love
Attention filters – things, people, information
Thinking styles – Top-down / Bottom-up
Pre-consciousness, personal consciousness, transpersonal consciousness
Where past, present and future appear, and the abisity to use and influence it appears
