“What do you want?

In the earliest modelling experience of Satir and Erickson, Bandler and Grinder discovered the basic premise of modelling excellence.  One of the key differences that made Satir and Erickson excellent therapists was that they were Outcome Oriented in their client work, to the outcomes that the client wanted.

Why set outcomes?

By setting an outcome, we become aware of the difference between what we have currently and what we want instead.  By filtering one’s thinking toward what we want to achieve, we pay attention to the opportunities which will assist us in achieving our desired outcome.
light_bulb_idea

In setting outcomes and having an Outcome Orientation, we create a direction and purpose in life by which we can “programme” ourselves to consistently achieve what we want.  By achieving our outcomes and continually reviewing and setting new outcomes, short and long term, we create the success we desire and deserve in all aspects our life.

How to achieve your Outcomes

Ensure that what you think you want really is what you want!

Use the Well Formed Outcomes Model to check that you know what you are going for, and that your behaviour is appropriate and ecological. You may also need to check out what other people involved want, and then dovetail your outcomes. Without an outcome you are more likely to be blown off course by external factors.

Well Formed Outcomes Model

1. Stated in the Positive

  •  What do you want?
  •  What will that do for you?

2. Demonstrable in Sensory Experience – Evidence Procedure
How will you know when you have got it?

  • V  What will you be seeing when you have got it?
  • A  What will you be hearing when you have got it?
  • K  What will you be feeling when you have got it?
  • V  What will I see you doing when you have got it?
  • A  What will I hear you saying when you have got it?

3. Started and Maintained by You
Can you start and maintain this outcome?

4. Appropriately Contextualised

  •  When, where and with who do you want it?
  •  When, where and with who do you not want it?
  •  How long for?

5. Maintain the Current Positive Byproducts
What do you get out of your current behaviour that you would wish to preserve?

6. Ecology Check

  •  Is it worth the cost to you?
  •  Is it worth the time it is going to take?
  •  Is this outcome in keeping with your sense of self?

 

light_bulb_ideaOur thoughts have a profound effect on the way we feel; they become a plan of what we are going to do and the more clearly thought out and distinctive your goals are the more actively you will pursue them.

The power of positive language: say what you do want, not what you don’t want!  The way you state a goal does make a difference. Researchers in the mid- to late‑70’s discovered that a goal which is positively stated is more likely to be accomplished than one that is negatively stated.

 

Checking for Ecology

In setting outcomes, we need to consider very carefully the consequences of achieving that outcome.  Ecology is the study of consequences; of considering how any change you make impacts on the wider system of which you are a part.  Ecology is having an awareness of the overall system and an Ecology Check is tracking the consequences of the change made in all aspects of that system.

 

Why do an Ecology Check?


light_bulb_idea

An ecology check on any outcome that we set assists us to recognise the impact of that change in all systems of which we are a part.

 

 

How to do an Ecology Check

Questions to ask yourself:

Nobody exists in isolation; we are all part of a larger social system, such as families, friendship networks, work teams, geographical communities, and society in general. More mutual satisfaction results by achieving shared outcomes where everyone wins. So when you set an outcome you also need to consider:

  • What will be the consequences of achieving my outcome be in the context of these wider relationships?
  •  Does my outcome fit in with what other people may want in their lives?
  •  Does it respect the integrity of the other people involved?

Look also at the consequences of achieving your outcome in a larger frame:

  •  What else would happen if I got what I want?
  •  Would there be any understandable by-products?
  •  What would I have to give up, or take on, to achieve it?

Your outcome and your sense of self

Whenever you set an outcome for yourself ask:

  •  How does this outcome relate to my sense of self?

And if you get this outcome:

  • Will this outcome enhance my sense of who I am?

 

The stronger the connection between your desired outcome and your sense of self the more compelled you will be to achieve it. So choose carefully.

 

light_bulb_idea

 

You are not your outcomes. Know that what you want is not who you are. You are more than your desires. Getting clear about this difference involves separating your identity from your outcomes.

 

 

Additional Outcomes Models:

The SMART Model

S: Specific, Short, Simple

M: Measureable, Meaningful to you, Motivates you now

A: Achievable, Act as if now, in present tense, All areas of your life

R: Realistic, Responsible / Ecological

T: Time Framed, Towards what you want /positive (no negations and no comparisons.

 

The Pacer Model

PACER is very similar to the Well Formed Outcomes Model

P:   Positive
Stated in the positive

  • What do you want?

A:   Achievement

  • How would you know that you had it?
  • What do you see, hear and feel?
  • How would someone else know that you had it?
  • What are the steps necessary to get there?
  • What is the first step?
  • What is the last step?

C:   Context

  • When do you want it?
  • When don’t you want it?
  • With whom?
  • Where?

E:   Ecology
The study of the consequences of achieving your goal.

  • For what purpose do you want it?
  • Is it representative of you, who you are and where you want to be?
  • Does the outcome increase choice?
  • What will happen if you get it?
  • What won’t happen if you get it?
  • What will happen if you don’t get it?
  • What won’t happen if you don’t get it?

R:   Resources

  • Can you initiate and maintain it?
  • What do you need to get your outcome?
  • Do you know anyone who has done this or achieved this?

 

Is your Outcome an Outcome or a State?

It is important to check whether your Outcome is an Outcome or whether it is in fact a State, such as confidence:

“I want to be more confident.”

light_bulb_idea

 

You can access this State – confidence – immediately using the NLP process of anchoring. You do not need to set an outcome.

 

 

 

State

Outcome or Goal

Confidence Competence
Stated Ambiguously Stated Specifically
Write Affirmations Write Outcomes or Goals
You Can Have It Now Time is involved
No Steps (get final step and work backwards) Steps Needed to Get There
Infinite Measureable
Stated for Self and/or   Others Stated for Self Only

  7. SESSION 18
    THE FOUR PILLARS OF NLP
    Well Informed Outcomes

    Exercise 1.
    Write your desired outcomes for this programme using the well informed model and cross check with SMART model and PACER model. Make your outcomes so significant that this training will be the most important and the most impactful training that you have even undertaken

    What do you want? I want to add NLP coaching principles to my current coaching practice, integrate same into training and other modalities I currently use in my work
    What will this do for you? This will enable me to expand my skills set and client base. Also to add more depth to my practice and therapy sessions

    Sensory Experience
    I will be seeing positive attitudinal change with my clients and watching them achieve their desired outcome
    I will be hearing how much clients can understand the benefits of using NLP and how much their lives have changed as a result of integrating same into their own tool box towards achieving their desired outcome
    I will be feeling satisfied that I have enabled clients to reach their desired outcome integrating NLP into coaching sessions
    You will see me using NLP in my own life, not only talking the talk but walking the walk
    You will hear me discussing how integrating NLP into my practice has added more depth to my skills set and made a significant difference to my size of my client base

    3. Can you start and maintain this outcome
    Yes absolutely, once I have received certification I will include NLP Coaching on advertising material and begin to offer NLP coaching as a stand- alone model of coaching also

    4.Appropriately Contextualised : When, were and with whom do you want it, (not want it) How long for?
    I will use it on an on- going basis with clients in training, coaching, consulting and integrative therapies sessions. I do not want my work to filter in to my ‘me’ time at any point in time

    5. Maintain Current Positive Byproducts: What do you get out of your current behaviour that you wish to preserve?
    Satisfaction and a sense of fulfilment that clients achieve their desired outcomes and transform their lives

    6. Ecology Check: Is it worth the cost to you? Is it worth the time it will take? Is this outcome in keeping with your sense of self?
    Yes it is definitely worth the cost to me, I just need to remember to keep to schedule, appreciate that introducing a new model into current practices means less time using other models in a given time frame. Otherwise I will become stressed and this will not only impact on my health but also on my relationship with my family
    Yes it most certainly worth the time it will take to begin including NLP principles into training materials and coaching sessions. I would have to look at desired outcomes, current concepts and models I currently use and identify the best way to integrate same. I will also need to look at when the appropriate time may be to do so
    I have spent numerous years working in the field of people development and really believe in making a positive difference in people’s lives. Using/integrating the principles of NLP into my work fits very much with my sense of self. It will also give me a fresh approach to looking at areas I need to address in my own life thus providing me with a deeper sense of awareness and self- fulfilment

  8. Four pillars of NLP
    What do I want- Smart-: “S”I want to take the detailed learning I feel I’ve gained through out this NLP training , into my ambition-: to develop and support individuals & their family who have suffered or are living with the effects of brain tumour
    “M” What will this do for me- It will give me a sense of achievement and giving back some of me , as I have been a patient myself having had a craniotomy Dec 14 removing a benign meningioma brain tumour . I had to change my role from a health care professional to becoming the patient – so I’ve experienced first hand the service offered from neurology & feel there many ways in which I can help other families going through the same extremely difficult time from diagnosis – surgery- pathology – recovery .. Having experienced this outcome first hand I feel I can help others move through the recovery path
    Feeling supported
    “A” How will I know I have got it – through feedback from the neuro patients & family members -: my idea is to develop -: Through the website as I’m working along side our web designer as part of the Brainwaves NI charity of which I’ve become a committee member , we are looking at designing a “worry button” where clients can email any concern knowing they will be responded to within an agreed time frame ,as I recognise some people find it hard initially to pick up the phone to ask for advise or help.. This will be another option clients can use .”R” . As I recognise in the early days since diagnosis can be very shocking / frightening time ..they want not wish to directly speak to someone , preferring to use an email approach. Until confidence is gained and a telephone conversation can proceed or a 1-1 or family meeting
    I will hear feedback regularly from clients taking on board their experience from the support offered through my developing role within Brainwaves NI . “T” To be reviewed March 2016

    PACER
    My NLP training will be transferable into my social work role within the Stroke rehab team -: “Positive” – Where patients take on a stronger sense of self efficacy leading to more control of their rehab goals, deciding what is important in their world , “Achievement ” :addressing what goals they wish to achieve, by the use of a work book which helps them identify their goal .. -“Context” this is empowering , building confidence & returning a sense of quality & fulfilment .”Ecology ” I feel this is an important way of working as the patient remains in charge rather than fitting into the therapist style of working . This use of self efficacy I believe keeps the patient focused as they are working to what is priority for them . “Resources”-: This will be reviewed and adapted through regular family meetings with the patient & the Multi disciplinary rehab team .. 6 weeks post implementation .. Feb 2016

    The process of SMART & PACER under of the umbrella of the 4 pillars of NLP – gives me a structure as you follow the process , making the journey for me , fulfilling & exciting as you see the outcomes are achieveable , real & meaningful – for the ultimate benefit of helping others to improve their lives in difficult times..

  9. Session 18: The Four Pillars of NLP
    1) Well Formed Outcomes

    Exercise 1
    Write your desired outcomes for this programme using the Well Formed Outcomes Model and cross check with the SMART Model and PACER Model.
    Make your outcomes so significant that this training will be the most important and the most impactful training you have ever taken.

    Well Formed Outcomes Model
    1. Stated in the Positive

    • What do you want? I want to use the skills I’ve learned on this course to improve my effectiveness in enabling the children in their learning.
    • What will that do for you? It will give me great pleasure seeing the children become more confident learners.

    2. Demonstrable in Sensory Experience – Evidence Procedure
    How will you know when you have got it?
    • V What will you be seeing when you have got it? I will see higher scores in regular tests and more confident faces on the children while they work independently.
    • A What will you be hearing when you have got it? I will hear more confident and expressive readers, who are able to answer trickier questions about what they’ve been reading.
    • K What will you be feeling when you have got it? I will be feeling proud to have made such a difference in the lives of these children.
    • V What will I see you doing when you have got it? I will be seen acknowledging the children’s fabulous efforts.
    • A What will I hear you saying when you have got it? You really are making an effort now, I can really see how you are trying much harder and getting better results.

    3. Started and Maintained by You
    Can you start and maintain this outcome? I am already putting into practise some of the new learning from the course and I am already seeing results. I am determined to finish the course as I know that I will see even better results and as my confidence grows I will maintain this outcome.

    4. Appropriately Contextualised
    • When, where and with who do you want it? Every morning in the classroom with the children who need extra support.
    • When, where and with who do you not want it? The confident readers in the class who are already independent and have support at home.
    • How long for? To the end of the school year.

    5. Maintain the Current Positive By-products
    What do you get out of your current behaviour that you would wish to preserve? I will remain patient, passionate and supportive.

    6. Ecology Check
    • Is it worth the cost to you?The cost is minimal: I have already paid for the course, I read with the children anyway so utilising learning points from the course within my work will enable me to be more effective and productive in what I already do.
    • Is it worth the time it is going to take? It won’t take any additional time. I will be more effective and productive in what I do already. I will be much more focussed on encouraging independent learning, whilst promoting self-esteem.
    • Is this outcome in keeping with your sense of self? It will be worth every ounce of effort to know that I have made a real positive difference in the lives of the children. Not only will the children benefit from this outcome but my self-confidence, self-esteem and satisfaction will also be enhanced.

    S –Targeting children who need immediate extra support.
    M – Satisfaction in witnessing more fluency and expressive reading.
    A – Increased productivity during pre-existing reading time resulting in greater satisfaction for both children and I.
    R – Although these children have already improved in their reading over the years, they continue to rank behind their peers. A boost in their learning and self-confidence would further enhance their self-esteem both in and out of the classroom.
    T – In a month’s time I will receive my certificate, which will confirm to me that I actually do have what it takes to make a positive difference in the lives of both myself and others.

    The Pacer Model
    P: Positive
    To achieve my certificate. To make a positive difference in the lives of both myself and others.
    A: Achievement
    I made the first step by signing up for the course. The last step will be receiving my certificate. The outcome of completing the course will be confirmation that I actually do have what it takes to make a positive difference in the lives of both myself and others. I will hear the class teacher commenting on how well the children are doing and how much more confident they are becoming.
    C: Context
    I would spend time every morning in the classroom with the children who need extra support rather than working with the more able readers who already have support at home.
    E: Ecology
    I would witness a boost in the children’s learning and self-confidence that would further enhance their self-esteem both in and out of the classroom. They would be more fluent and expressive readers. I am driven by self-improvement and want pass this quality on to others so they can make choices to make a difference in their lives also.
    R: Resources
    I will increase my productivity during pre-existing reading time. I don’t know of anyone else outside of this course who has completed a course in coaching and NLP.
