4 Ways to Improve Auditory Awareness as a Neuro linguistic programming coach | NLP IS Fun

A huge part of truly mastering Neuro linguistic programming is your ability to calibrate information. We as neuro linguistic programming coaches and change workers have a different take on listening, this is because we are so interested in the words, tonality, cadence, inflection and so much more.  We consider all of this additional information that adds meaning to the words you choose.

The last two years during the pandemic is a perfect example of how becoming more adaptive with sensory based information became so much more relevant, since we were no longer connecting in the ways we had been so used to.
We were unable to meet in person or have a large group. In this case how we presented information changed. Neuro linguistic programming training that traditionally had been done face to face in many cases was 100% online or via telecommunication, email, video.

NLP coaches were mostly coaching with their telephones now and online.

We also found there may be times it was not possible to have any visuals and only have auditory sensory calibration capabilities.

Communication is what we as Neuro linguistic programmers do, we love to learn your "model of the world".
This information is relevant and priceless to us and considered information gathering. 

Because to us listening is more than just hearing. Being fully focused and present to the information being presented in its original form. Without adding anything to it, instead listening exactly how it is being presented and examining each subtle nuance.

Notice what you can notice that lends more information or creates some type of micro shift and explore it to find out what is going on.

If you have been one of my long-time readers of NLP is Fun you may be familiar with this post, I wrote about your Auditory representation system which is also a worthwhile read.

Here are 4 ways to Improve auditory awareness as an NLP Coach

4 ways to Improve Auditory awareness | NLP is Fun

1. Listen to tonality = the speakers tone always gives much more information as to the strength of the statement belief, or mind state at time of communicating. Ask yourself "what is the meaning of this" and explore more.

2. Listen to Rythm and Pace changes read my blog post about Rhyme, Rhythm and Hypnosis here   for more about communication Language and Rythm.

3. Listen to the speakers breathing and notice heart rate, if possible as well as body language does this appear to match the pace of the words being communicated. 

4. Listen to repetitions, metaphors, reasons and beliefs each one adding volumes of clues.

Think of yourself as a communication investigator and have fun investigating. Remember do not add assumptions of your own and be objective in your findings. 

It is your turn, how do you feel about doing this, perhaps you have another tip have you ever had great success by doing these and more please let me know in the comments.
