Recently I talked at the Cambridge NLP Practice group about Empowering Learning. This is what John Kendall, their chairman said: ”
We invited Olive Hickmott to talk to our practise group on how NLP knowledge aids learning.
Instead she gave us an inspiring talk that exceeded our expectations, based on her lifelong knowledge of helping differently able children learn. Empowering Learning is much more than just a rehashed old NLP learning strategy !
It was a thorough understanding of all aspects of the learning process, covering the gaps of the old approach & all the issues involved. It was given simply with many practical exercises & she handled the questions of the group skilfully.
Some of the recommendations were blindingly obvious (to NLPers) once you had been told them. About a quarter of our adult nlp skilled audience confessed to spelling limitations & she was able to improve performance quickly with some simple techniques.
Her key is to understand the VAKOG of learning as opposed to the VAKOG of teaching. So called experts are now realising that that is the most important aspect we need to get right.
One of her final slides was a summary of all the standard NLP techniques used in her drive to improve literacy & spelling. There were more than a dozen !
One member was so impressed she instantly decided to change her career.
Her work is highly practical with fast results that can release the talents of young & old.
Immensely important, this needs greater exposure. I guarantee you will learn something useful.”
I am very happy to offer talks to other NLP groups. Just mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
