The Meta-Model Rewritten

Thursday 11th April 2024 - 19:00 (BST)

Top tip before attending Darren's session...Darren says "Think about how you respond in the moment, especially when the meta model is used"

Presentation details...

Language is key not only to communication but also as an insight into your client's construction of their world.


This becomes apparent when we expose the thinking behind the meta-model to levels of self-awareness, as you will learn that a high level thinker will not say 90% of the phrases we are taught in the traditional meta-model.


You will see from the research how this is true, and you will get a chance to practise this in the room with colleagues equally intrigued about developmental level meta-modelling.

As NLP Professionals, we are familiar with the Meta-Model and what it means. However, if we introduce it to the various theories of adult development, the entire premise behind it changes.


You will learn how to use the language patterns within the traditional Meta-Model in a completely new and improved way. You will no longer address the sentence but instead the developmental thinking behind the sentence, thus enhancing your linguistic skills in the process.  Not only this, you will begin to understand how developmental levels are important in coaching, and how to read them in your client's language patterns.

Learning outcomes...

In this workshop, you will learn how Darren converted IACR to CAIR in order to open up the format to a more talking-therapy-based approach to helping clients.


Darren look's forward to sharing ideas with you and further defining and refining this CAIR approach with your help.


Understanding your construction of self will help you to help others understand theirs!  


A new way of looking at Coaching from a therapy perspective without actually being a therapist, or claiming to be a therapist.


This workshop is designed to enhance your capacity to coach whilst remaining true to your coaching roots.  Your clients will also benefit as you add a new string to your coaching bow.
