Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

What is it?

NLP is a methodology with a lot of techniques that Athina is trained to use during her individual and team coaching sessions always with the permission of the coachee.

The official definition of NLP is the study of subjective experience.  Subjective experience means how we experience, make sense of the world we believe we are in.

NLP is a total approach to discovering the structure behind someone’s behaviour, to discover how he or she experiences the world.

Neuro  –  NLP has to do with the brain and with other neurological systems in our body
Linguistic  –  NLP is about other ways in which we process information using the five senses and things like “gut instinct”
Programming  –  NLP teaches how we can programme and re-programme our brain in to having more helpful thoughts, reactions and behaviour patterns.

Ethical use of NLP

Athina uses the NLP methodology in a very ethical way always asking permission form the individual. It is used in a very pragmatic way mainly for outcomes / goal setting and values identification.

Realise 2 Strengths Profiler

What is it?

The Realise 2 (R2) Strengths Profiler is a tool that helps individuals and teams to gain more insight about their unique strengths.

How is it used?

The individual is asked to complete an online questionnaire via a link. The R2 works by asking the individual to rate 60 attributes according to how energising s/he finds them, how good s/he is at them and how often s/he uses them. The responses are scored and produce a report that gives insights to the individual’s 60 strengths.

A 90minutes feedback session is organised with Athina to debrief the report and create an Action Plan based on the individual’s goals. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain hands on information about your individual strengths and start applying them straight away!

Who is it for?

This is a tool that Athina is using either in her one to one coaching sessions with individuals or as a part of a team development session with organisations.

As part of a team development day this is an excellent opportunity for teams to gain insights about their collective strengths and areas of improvement.  This is a fantastic workshop for organisations to have fun, bond as a team and set an action plan to achieve their strategic business objectives.
