¡ ✉ ¿ The 'As-If' Frame ▢

¡ ✉ ¿ The 'As-If' Frame ▢ | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

 

¡ ✉ ¿Definition:

✒ As If frame: A way of shifting into a different perceptual framework, and thus obtaining another quality of information.This can be especially useful if the content you are thinking about involves a stuck feeling.To use an "as if" frame, think of what it would be like As if you had the needed resource.http://bit.ly/2OwYRq

 

 

The first premise of NLP is to establish rapport, to pace the client.

 

Probably the greatest mismatch for a traditional British manufacturing organisation is to propose anything that smacks of having any

connotation of “beads and sandals”.

 

To do so in an unprepared group is to run the risk of instant branding as ‘weird’ and possibly permanent ‘deletion’. (Though if the group is prepared, or work is one-to-one, then the boundaries can be quite different.)

 

So, how can NLP be used with an unprepared group?

 

One method that we have found very effective in my business is to use the “As-If” Frame as a simple technique both for diagnosis and change.

 

The underlying technique is not an NLP construction or discovery, more a variant on “Once upon a time …”, the basic “As-If” frame was derived by modelling Milton Erickson’s “Pseudo-Orientation in Time” trance technique. Whilst it can be used in the basic form, a deeper understanding of NLP helps to strengthen and enrich the technique in its application.

 

Here is a brief outline of the basic technique and then two examples of how it can be applied in a business.

 

At the simplest, the basic “As-If” frame is a way of stepping out of current limitations to a point in the future where they have been resolved and hence the appropriate resources are in place.

 

The client is then asked to look back (from the future) and see how the resolution took place....

 

 

✒ Examples:

I can’t tell my partner how I feel
But if you could, what would you want them to know?
The client will typically at this point move away from “I can’t”, towards either discussing the heart of the problem (rather than just a blanket denial of their ability to solve it), or – more commonly – they will start to identify what they would wish to say and spontaneously begin to consider ways that it could be said.

 

Either would be seen as a positive step towards the client learning to solve their own problem.

 

 

✒ Other ways of using the ‘as-if’ frame:

 

> For an outcome, act as if you have already achieved your outcome. Live your dreams now and allow reality to catch up!

 

> When negotiating or problem solving, you can explore other possibilities by saying, “Let’s proceed as if I agree to this demand or take your proposed course of action. What would you do for me, or what would happen as a result?”

 

> If a key person is missing from a meeting, you may say, “Let’s act as if Sue is present. What would she suggest?”

 

> For project planning, you may wish act as if the project has been successfully completed and then ask what steps were necessary to reach this outcome.

 

This approach may highlight some important information that is not obvious when planning from the present.

✒✒ What is an NLP Frame ▢:

Framing in NLP terms refers to the way we put things into different contexts to give them different meanings. If we alter the frame, we alter the meaning.

10 Things Employees Want More Than a Raise

10 Things Employees Want More Than a Raise | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Making big money is often less important to employees than satisfying these basic needs.


Via Silvia Toffolon, Ariana Amorim, In Awakening
Alan Lee Myers, MA, PCC, CH's insight:

Great article about what really motivates employees.  Money is great, but it doesn't get at the most basic of human needs: significance, love/connection, certainty, and variety.  If leaders could build organizations that try to meet these basic human needs not only with employes but customers too, just think what can be done.   That would be an organization that would be both profitable and sustainable.  It would be an agent of change for good in the world.
