So the next time you are in a meeting pay attention to what your colleagues say and make a point of listening for the type of sensory language they use. When you listen carefully, it is possible to identify patterns in their language that indicate a preference for one representational system over the others. You may discover that most of the words that are used refer to one sense more than any of the others.  This is a clue to that person’s model of the world. In NLP these sensory words are known as Predicates.

Pay attention and then you can match a particular colleagues’ preference and start using those words back to them. By being able to understand and speak to colleagues in their own representational system, you will heighten the sense of rapport between you and pave the way for the trust that is so important in any close relationship.

Great communicators instinctively pick up on a person’s language and use it in their conversation so that the person they are engaging feels comfortable with them.

    The school building is quite modern as it was built in 2010 to replace the previous building, which was destroyed by a fire. There are several play areas including a trim trail, sand pit and a large field; used primarily in the summer term for sporting events. There are around 400 pupils at the school who, in addition to their education, enjoy enrichment activities and seem genuinely happy to be there.

    Visual version
    As you can see the school building is perceived to be state-of-the-art as it was built in 2010 to replace the previous ugly building, which on the face of it was ruined by a smouldering fire. You will notice that there appears to be several play areas including an attractive trim trail, a small but significant sand pit and a large field. If you catch a glimpse of the children on the field during the summer term, it’ll look like they are enjoying the sporting events. Take a peek inside the school and you will get a scope on around 400 pupils who, in addition to their stunning education, enjoy enrichment activities and are visibly happy to be there.

    Auditory version
    You will be all ears to hear that our school building is quite modern as it was built in 2010 to replace the previous echoey building, which was devastated by a raging fire. You’ve probably heard about our numerous play areas including the rattly trim trail, squeaky clean sand pit and voluminous field. In the summer months the noisy children can be heard cheering each other on in sporting events. Hear me out when I say that I am well informed that there are around 400 pupils at the school who, in addition to their education, rejoice in enrichment experiences and sound happy to be there.

    Kinaesthetic version
    Get a feel for our modern school building that was built in 2010 to replace the previous tired building, which was devastated by a blazing fire. Get to grips with our numerous play areas, which include a purpose-built, winding trim trail and a sensory sand pit. I also have a feeling that you’ll be quite impressed with the enormity of the field. You’ve probably caught onto the fact that the field is used primarily in the summer term for exercising and sporting events. Hop inside the building to get a feel for 400 busy pupils who, in addition to their solid education, participate in enrichment activities and feel happy to be there.

    Auditory Digital version
    I think you will understand that our school building is essentially quite modern as it was constructed in 2010 to replace the previous antiquated building, that was unfortunately devastated by an intense fire. The exterior section is home to several play areas including a trim trail, sand pit and a large field; used primarily in the summer term for competitive sporting events. You will perceive that approximately 400 pupils attend the school who, in addition to their optimum education, are conscious of considering appropriate enrichment experiences and I think they all sense that they feel euphoric to be there.
