Do not bite-off more than you can chew is an old saying. The NLP Meta Program Chunk Size let’s you understand the hierarchy of it and as well how to recognize and use it. Let’s start with a description that will make you clear what the NLP Meta Program Chunk Size is all about. Imagine the Earth, the earth is divided by land and oceans. The land is divided by continents. Continents on their turn are divided by countries. A country has cities. Cities have roads and homes. One of those roads leads to your home. Your home has rooms. This room has stuff in it. At least this room has walls. These walls are made of something solid. This solid part contains carbon. Now if you agree or disagree your room has stuff in it, it is ok. The demonstration we make here is that there is a sort-order from world view up until the smallest particle we are able to recognize.

So we are able to see the world and we are able to see the smallest part of it and everything in between. In other words, the conclusion is simple. We are able in our communication with ourselves and with others to move up towards the worldly-view and we are able to zoom in to the smallest part of the detail. Welcome to the wonderful world of the NLP Meta Program Chunk Size.

So, how do we recognize this pattern?

Good question! Ever experienced having a conversation with someone and they kept on discussing more details of details? Or, ever experienced a conversation about details that moved up to reorganizing the world? And even this one; ever experienced a discussion that started with cars and ended up with details about Volvo, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Audi, VW, Toyota, Suzuki, Isuzu, Opel and so on? Welcome, you discovered another part.

Chunking appears in three ways. The first (or the last) is chunking up. The second is chunking sideways. And the third one (or the first one) is chunking down.
This is what we call chunking. Up, down, or sideways.

Now what do you benefit from it?

Well, there are several parts to that. First, if you are in a conversation with someone and for example you discussing the plate on your table.
You want to say something about the food on the table. Now, directly switching from the plate to the food, would be maybe a step to quick. So to maintain rapport and understanding from both sides you switch from the plates to the table setting. You say something nice about it. From the table setting to the food, you move the attention from the table to the food and say something remarkable about it.

Results?

You switched up from the plates to the table and then moved to the food. Maintaining the good feeling of the discussing, leading the other person into something you want to tell. For the listening and understanding ears with us; this is called Omni-directional Chunking. And the beauty of it is, it works two ways!

Of course an exercise, it is naturally occurring.

Now, you reading this far already states that you recognize yourself in what is written above. The next time you are in a conversation with anyone, you consciously migrate the conversation from one to another subject. You do it by gradually chunking up or down the information you are talking about.

Once you chunked up enough, you make a side-step. A side step towards the subject you want to discuss. And then, and only then, you deepen the conversation into the subject you want to talk about in detail.

For your Information

The NLP Meta Program Chunk Size is part of the blog-collection about NLP Meta Programs. Make sure you read them all!

Last but not Least

Remember, to increase your efficiency as a NLP Practitioner, know your positive intention for the message you want to convey, build rapport and pay attention on what and how you use language. Leave people and business in a better place that where you found them, every day!

Words that take the place of a noun in a sentence but are not tangible are Nominalizations. They can not be touched, felt or heard. Nominalizations are used as nouns but they are actually process words.When you use a Nominalization, a large part of information is deleted. Nominalizations come very helpful in hypnosis and hypnotic inductions. They allow you to be vague and require the listener to search trough their experience for the most applicable meaning. By using Nominalizations you can give useful instructions and being protected at the same time of saying something that will violate or runs counter to the listener’s internal experience.
Some examples of Nominalizations
 
 
And of course an Exercise with Nominalizations
 
 
 
Have fun reading our articles about Gathering Information, the Inverse of the Meta Model and the NLP Milton Model and the exercises we provide you here online.

Now you have learned all about the Meta-Model and how to learn more about the Deep Structure of people’s experiences, you will probably want to use what you know about the Meta-Model to help people find more behavioral options for themselves. This is a great intention and you are recommended you do so as you start to have fun with it already. Also remember that you are working with changing minds here. And this remark is meant in both ways. One – The minds you are working with will be changing all the time, almost just by virtue of your asking certain questions in certain ways. Two – you are working to directly change minds.

Think of this all not only to be applicable to therapy, but it certainly can be. After all that is where the Meta Model came from, but it is not as though we cannot use it to be more effective in lots of other areas. If you are doing therapy or hypnosis, make sure you are licensed accordingly wherever you live. Think of all the applications possible in business sense, it can be used with family and friends to have them feel better faster, to debate topics, to find out people’s limiting beliefs and to find out what people are really thinking. The NLP Meta Model Chunked Up.

NLP trained people talk a great deal about ecology associated with personal changes. In logical terms, you are asking a truth-table questions like “What would happen if you did?”, “What would happen if you did not?”, “What would not happen if you did?” and “What would not happen if you did not?”, so to cover all your bases. That is most of it. Before helping someone with an undetermined change, ask the above four questions and find out first if it is a useful change for them. And if you do not know what they mean, just ask them: The NLP Meta Model Chunked Up.

“What do you mean, specifically!”

Remember, to increase your efficiency as a NLP Practitioner, know your positive intention for the message you want to convey, build rapport and pay attention on what and how you use language. Leave people and business in a better place that where you found them, every day!

Mastering the Meta Model will come only after you have learned about all the major patterns and begun to recognize them in the language people use at a conversational pace. It may seem or have seemed difficult to reach this level, but it does not need to be. Recommended is to make a conscious effort during your social conversations with friends and family, to recognize, not to challenge, as many Meta-Model patterns as you can. Start by intending to recognize only one or two patterns, consciously, in each conversation. Some people like to make flashcards with each pattern, which say “Today I am going to listen for Lost Performatives.” Eventually, try as you might to only pay attention to one or two patterns, you will be hearing more and more.

Going that way, you will be hearing so many patterns in your conversations, it may seem overwhelming to know which ones to pursue and gather more information on. When you reach that point, just stop and take a step back. Take a deep breath and know that this is the beginning of mastery when it all seems overwhelming and yet it is all there at your fingertips – as you wonder how to apply your knowledge more effectively.

How to Apply?

In order to apply it effectively you are going to have to start here. What is your outcome? And how do you maintain rapport as you pursue your outcome? Gain physical rapport, verbal rapport, start to look for what is not there, start to choose which pattern to ask more questions about and gather more detailed information. Use softeners, maintain rapport, decide if the answers you are getting are bringing you closer to your outcome or further away. Develop that language engine and walk a little bit ahead of time, so you can see what is coming your way in the conversation you have. That is the way of getting good at it, like a tailor-made suit.

Use your Intuition

Getting good at this requires the careful honing of your intuition, which requires a commitment to learn and practice. Again, practice firstly in a highly directed fashion using one or two patterns at the time, either in memory or by holding flashcards.

Then, later on, expand your awareness with a more open-ended observation of patterns in conversations. As my master once told me: “Soon you will become a Meta-Monster, whoehahaha!!!” as the same is true about you. Remember to maintain rapport and always know your outcome. If you find yourself and the conversation is going on and on and not getting anywhere, it is probably from having defined an outcome that was not very realistic or was not relevant enough to the conversation you where having. Set realistic goals, know your outcome and look for what is not there.

Besides using your intuition, it comes in handy to practice all the skills you have learnt. Rapport, Eye Accessing Cues, the Meta Model, Milton Model, Meta Programs and a ton more.

Last but not Least

Remember, to increase your efficiency as a NLP Practitioner, know your positive intention for the message you want to convey, build rapport and pay attention on what and how you use language. Leave people and business in a better place that where you found them, every day!

The NLP Meta Program Direction has two parts and is simple to remember. Language that is recognized as “Away From” and “Towards To”. To clarify this last statement, take a look at the following example: “I was suffering from a lot of pain, but now I sincerely become better.” In this sentence you are able to recognize a few things. “I was suffering” so the conclusion is that there is no or less pain now. This person, language technically seen, is moving away from pain. And, “Now I sincerely become better”. The conclusion you could draw here is that this person is moving towards a better health. So in working with Clients in Coaching for example, you are able to recognize the direction where this person is moving Away From and Towards to.

Please do note that the first part of the sentence is in the past as well, so the Meta Program Time needs to be investigated here as well.  Just as a demonstration that the NLP Meta Programs do not come as a sole lonely program, they come as a mix. And for you, the NLP Practitioner the beautiful task to investigate them. It is helpful in determining this kind of language to detect the movement.

Let’s take a look at some more examples.
  • This morning I was in the house, now I am in the office.
  • Yesterday I did not know this specific part of knowledge. This morning I have learnt to recognize it.
  • I was suffering from a lot of pain, but now I sincerely become better.

Let’s start with the first example. “I was in the House”, “Now I am in the office”. A lively example that this person moved away from home, towards and to the office The second one “Yesterday I did not know”, “Now I know”. An example of learning over time. Away from not knowing, moving towards knowledge. The third example we already went over in the introduction. So we leave that to your imagination.

The simple conclusion is that you start to listen to the movement of a persons statement. Where does the person start and where does the statement end? For the more advanced NLP Practitioners and NLP Master Practitioners under us, you will notice that there is more than one Meta Program running at the time. That is the reason why we invite you to read the main article about NLP Meta Programs as well!

Now some exercises.

Take a look on how you have learnt a specific skill. Travel back to the point where you did not have started this specific learning.
Now write down what you did not learn yet. For example “I could not multiply”. Then we are approaching the learning curve and you learning the theory and practical examples of learning to multiply.

So a conclusion of the NLP Meta Program Direction can be: “I could not multiply long time ago, it was difficult for me. Now I have learnt it it is fun and easy.” Do you see the movement of Direction in this sentence?

Write down Ten Examples of them and notice that we use the Direction Pattern a lot in our language. If you have questions, or if you want to validate your practicing, do send it to us. We are happy to help.

Last but not Least

Remember, to increase your efficiency as a NLP Practitioner, know your positive intention for the message you want to convey, build rapport and pay attention on what and how you use language. Leave people and business in a better place that where you found them, every day!

NLP Strategies – Let’s start with NLP first. NLP is a meta discipline. That is, it is a discipline of disciplines. It is the study of the structure of subjective experience and what can be calculated from that. Now a strategy is a high level plan to achieve one or more goals under certain conditions. For example, the specific strategy is traveling trough at least two representational systems. To remind you, the Representational System consists out of our Five Senses. Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, Olfactory and Gustatory. Combining these two we come to NLP strategies. For example: You have learnt in our NLP Practitioner to use your five senses, to generate and maintain rapport. All useful tools to execute a strategy.

But we are not here now to discuss what you have learnt up until now. It is time to combine all the tools you have and to see you make a start with applying strategies and eliciting strategies from others.

General Systems Model

We can easily assume that all of our behavior is controlled by internal processing strategies.

All of us has a particular set of strategies for motivating yourself, coming into action, for delegating and learning. You have too much strategies to name them all in this article. So they are just examples to demonstrate how rich and knowledgable you already are!

On the other hand our cultural models do not explicitly teach us the specific aspects of the strategies that are required to achieve the behavioral goals intended by each model.

For example you can be very good at making money. But on the other hand you fail completely with others like loving someone or personal relationships.

General Systems Model and Strategies

By applying the techniques and procedures described in NLP, individuals in various corners of competencies have learned to modify existing strategies or have learnt to create new strategies from scratch for themselves.

The wonderful world of success is a matter of putting the most effective strategy to work. Most of the strategies can be easily learned or modified to tailor your personal needs to accomplish the goal you are pursuing.

Strategy Elicitation

Now it comes to eliciting a strategy. Basically strategy elicitation are two fancy words that mean nothing more than applying the tools you have learnt in an NLP Practitioner or Master Practitioner training.
The tools we have at our disposal are Rapport, The Meta Model, eventually Hypnosis where we use the Milton Model and a bit of State Control.

Take the following example.

A golfer on hole one is ready to tee-off. He grabs Big Bertha put his pin in the ground and his ball on top. He takes his stance and starts making practice movements to hit the ball the best he can. In the meanwhile he looks at the pole where the hole is. Each repetition of his practice hit he first looks at the ball, then at the pole. In his mind he drags the pole closer and closer. Finally he tees-off and makes the perfect shot.

Now what happens with this golf-pro? Let’s go over it statically.
  1. Golfer at hole one
  2. Thinks which club to use and grabs Big Bertha.
  3. Put pin in ground, ball on top.
  4. Start making practice movements
  5. Orientates where to bring the ball to
  6. Visualizes goal, making goal more clear.
  7. Practice continues, Looks at ball, Looks at Goal
  8. Visualize the goal closer in his mind.
  9. Tees off, result: Perfect shot.

Already by going over the story in a more static way we discover that there is a Decision, Visual and Kinesthetic aspects in this strategy. Now this example is just a simple demonstration of how a procedure for a tee-off goes. There are many many aspects you need to keep into account for a successful elicitation.
One of the aspects we did not discuss yet is to encourage and enhance the state the person is in the moment you want to elicit a strategy.

Let’s call it to put the Cook in the Kitchen.

Another short example is, is that you want to elicit the strategy of a brilliant chef-cook that makes the most delicious cake. Let’s ask this first: Are you going to ask this Chef just on the street and rely on the fact that you understand everything he is saying?

Or do you invite this Chef to his kitchen to ask questions, to see what he is doing and to notice all the different movements in between, while he is finishing his success strategy for his delicious cake?

Probably you choose the second option. And that is what we intend to say, put the Cook in the Kitchen. Get the person you are working with fully associated with the strategy he or she is doing best. It ends up that it will make your work easier and the results better than they have ever been before.

Some Exercise: Our Strategy – Start Simple.

Strategies of various kinds and complexity can be challenging to elicit them. We advise you to start simple. Start with something simple you do yourself.
Start by asking yourself, how do I put my coat on? Where is the coat located? How do you find your coat? Next, how do you put your coat on? Left hand or right hand first? When is the procedure “Putting your Coat on Ended?” All are relevant questions to elicit your own success strategies.

Our motto is to start simple. Once you have seen a simple example and you are successful in recognizing and decoding all the aspects, you are able to move on to a more complex one. The reason behind the fact to start simple is simple. We want you to succeed.

Last but not Least

Remember, to increase your efficiency as a NLP Practitioner, know your positive intention for the message you want to convey, build rapport and pay attention on what and how you use language. Leave people and business in a better place that where you found them, every day!
