Sid Jacobson Topics:
The NLP approach is built on the principles of human modeling, which involves learning at it’s very core. Much of what we do in NLP is about how people think and learn, and how that leads to behavior, either successful or unsuccessful. These principles can be used to design a system of actually teaching people–children or adults–how to learn: Teaching Learning.
During this presentation we’ll explore, in depth, several key NLP principles including sensory processing, reference experiences and state management. We’ll then show how each of these can be taught and learned in a way that enhances any kind of learning, whether in the classroom, the workplace or in life. We will have discussion, demonstrations and hands-on practice throughout this fast-paced fun presentation.
This workshop is designed for anyone with an interest in teaching and learning, for themselves, or in helping others, including their children. These ideas will be helpful to anyone in health care or therapy responsible for helping caregivers, or patients, learn new information. Of course this is also helpful for anyone in business involved in training or coaching, since the learning process is central to those activities, as well.
