The purpose of the free discovery phase is to enable you to clarify what will make the programme really useful to you. As part of this phase we will explore

  1. what will be useful to you,
  2. a leadership assessment , and

2) DUFF 1) direction, 2) use of time, energy and attention on a daily basis 3) feedback and 4) feedforward

3) NLP coaching model.

This builds on the GROW+ model  and includes:

Beginning frame

What we agree at the beginning of an intervention changes what our client focuses on, what they experience, and  results they get from the programme


The states we’re in impact how we come over to others and how we connect the resources already within us. Learning to use our emotions is a key ingredient to our long term success

Direction/outcomes/end goals

Setting a direction is a key leadership skill, outcomes and goals are important are a key management capability to help us reach the direction we’ve set


Establishing trust and rapport helps us in leadership and sales, and improves how we work with stakeholders and anyone important to us

Where you are now (including the meta model)

Asking key questions is a key skill to help us find out what we need to know, and to help our client answer many of their own challenges

Mental rehearsal

Mental rehearsal (future pacing) helps us improve our performance and increases our chances of carrying out difficult tasks

Follow up

Follow up often makes the difference between good and exceptional performers


Phase 3 NLP and Personal Change

Affirmations help us focus on what is really important. They work surprisingly well when designed correctly for a specific individual

Amplifying and changing feelings

Leading and managing our states and moods are a major part of emotional intelligence and leadership

Belief change

Understanding which beliefs help us and which hinder us, and then learning to build on the ones that help us improves how we perform

Perceptual positions

Perceptual positions help us understand others point of view, and change our behaviour if relevent

Phobia cure and six step reframing

We explore a number of approaches to personal change and personal development

Meta programmes

Meta programmes are our own version of Disc and Myers Briggs. We can use them converonationally they are particularly useful for presentations, recruitment and team building
