We all tend to assume everyone is just like we are and we communicate with others the way we want information to be delivered to us.  The problem is that people are, by and large, do not have the same patterns we do.

Isn’t it a bit arrogant to think that everyone else should communicate the same way that you do?

The MetaPrograms of NLP are tools for knowing exactly how and when to communicate to others the way they need to receive the information.

The MetaPrograms of NLP

Meta means ‘beside’ or ‘about’ something.  A Metaphor is a story representing some situation.  In NLP there is a way of understanding human interaction that we never actually experience another person’s reality.  We may be able to describe what we think is going on in another person’s world, but we never get the full extent of how the view the world.  So, what we do is create maps.  The closer the features of the map I make about you are to the terrain of who you are and how you operate, the better or more useful the map. 


In the spring of 1988, a partner and I were venders at a Health and Fitness fair in Dallas, Texas.  From my NLP Practitioner’s Certification program with Anthony Robbins the year before, I came away with a couple of ideas.  One was that I wanted to be involved in bringing NLP to the business community.  It was still early enough at the time that not everyone had heard about NLP and its applications to business.  The second idea was that inside the body of knowledge I had been taught that the MetaPrograms of NLP are the most business applicable part of NLP.  

My partner and I had contracted to have a computer program designed that would deliver an analysis of your MetaPrograms when a person filled out a simple form.  We chose 4 MetaPrograms to elicit communication patterns and were busy handing these forms out while another member of the team ran the computer analysis and printed out a report.  A short conversation about the analysis would give the person valuable information about themselves and tell us if the individual was a candidate for business services.  

We thought we were being quite creative.  While I had stepped away for refreshments a gentleman found his way to our booth and as it was reported to me, proceeded to tell my partner that “You can’t do this.”  My partner simply handed him a hand full of the forms and he was wildly reading through them when I returned.

The gentleman turned out to be Rodger Bailey, the primary developer of the NLP MetaProgram material.  We formed a relationship and my partner and I were invited to assist a training program with the Dallas Police Department.  I learned a lot from Rodger and still consider the MetaProgram material to be a very important part of rapport and language skills of NLP.

In this 2-day NLP seminar, MetaPrograms: Language of Influence, you will learn 12 specific language and behavior patterns (perhaps more) that can transform your abilities to OPEN THE DOORS to success in every area of your life. 

Your trainer will be Bill Thomason, NLP Master Trainer at the NLP Coaching & Skills Training Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona.   Learn 12 Language and behavior patterns that will transform your communication with yourself and with others. 

We all assume everyone else is operating just like we do.  The problem is that it doesn’t work that way.  In this two day seminar you will learn to communicate with people the way they need to get the information.  You will be seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, smelling MetaPrograms as the cumulative effect of learning these patterns begins to rewire the pathways through which you understand your world.  

MetaPrograms are a set of thought and behavior patterns that operate at an other-than-conscious level.  An amazing amount of miscommunication goes on because we all assume everyone else is operating the way we do.  Problem is: it’s just not true.  Other people have different patterns and it is simply arrogant to expect them to be like us.

This seminar will wake you up.  By the second day the patterns begin to come together in a way that you will never view others the same way ever again.  You will learn to recognize, elicit, and respond to people the way need the information.
