Changing Lives in Organizations Through Research Based NLP Methods

Date/time TBC

Presentation details...

The traditional change models don’t match today’s need for rapid change in organizations experiencing generative technology combined with remote work. 


It’s time for changing our change models to create readiness and quickly generate positive change.  For those who would like to have the research-based proof that NLP works, this is the workshop to participate in.   


The Sanders’ Transformational Change Model is built from the results of quantitative research within a large company, testing two NLP methods of Metaphor/Story and Reverse Structured Time Orientation Pattern.


Research using NLP methods is very limited, conducting the research in a real organisation experiencing organisational culture change is rarer.  The results of this Ph.D. research will be reviewed, showing the statistical significance of the two patterns related to control groups. Within the Conference session, you will see the data and be able to create the patterns for use in your organisational development work.   


This new research-based change model will be presented for virtual and/or face to face programs at the Conference.  It was developed specifically for change professionals who are seeking innovative methods that work with any educational level.  


You will learn how to use the Model’s techniques to eloquently create readiness for the changes being introduced.  Interactive activities will be interwoven in the 90-minute presentation/webinar to craft the NLP change messages so you can walk out with specific messages to use in the future.  The Sanders' Transformational Change Model shows change methods and how to access the underlying neurological factors behind lasting change.  I will show you, the three-part model including two significant research-based methods and how these to create change in employees’ attitudes, perceptions and behaviours.
