1. Behavioral integration of the basic presuppositions of NLP, including:

  • Outcome orientation with respect for others’ models of the world and the ecology of the system. (Respect each person’s model of the world)
  • Distinction between map and territory. (The map is not the territory)
  • There is only feedback -no failure. (All outcomes are achievements; there is only feedback)
  • Meaning of your communication is the response you get.
  • Adaptive intent of all behavior. (Every behavior is motivated by positive intention. People make the best choices they can with the resources they have available.)
  • Everyone has the necessary resources to succeed.  (Individuals have all of the resources they need to achieve their desired outcomes.)
  • Resistance is a signal of insufficient pacing. (Effective communicators accept and utilize all communication presented to them.)
