Minimising the Risk in Change with Business NLP

The onset of change can present challenges and risks for all organisations and individual staff upon whom it impacts. Successful change management depends on the ‘buy-in’ of staff at all levels and their skills in communication and managing change. NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) was developed as a tool for change 30 years ago. It has enabled people to embrace and consolidate change - with outstanding results.

Milton Keynes, U.K. (PRWEB) November 23, 2004 -- PPI is a leading training company using the principles of Business NLP to empower professionals to manage change situations efficiently, harmoniously and with no time lost.

“At board level, creating and communicating a clear vision, momentum and rationale for change is a core challenge,” says PPI Director, Michael Beale. “For management, it’s often being clear about their vision and communicating the changes and putting systems in place to ensure they stick. Operational staff are crucial to the implementation and maintenance of change, so they need to feel channels are open for communication – and that they have the tools to do the job.”

PPI’s ‘Managing Change’ NLP Masterclass helps individuals at all levels to become highly effective catalysts for change. It aids management and staff to understand the barriers to change, how they can be overcome, how to anticipate the tougher decisions and how to ensure that they’re properly addressed. NLP techniques in problem solving, building rapport and communication in handling complex or difficult situations makes the upheaval of change manageable.

Results of training create a win-win situation for employee and employer. Staff recognise their value as an agent of change, gaining confidence and greater skills for coping with and communicating change; organizations can use NLP as a comprehensive change management tool – its techniques unlock resources in people maximizing the benefits in change.
