NLP and Emotional Intelligence

The model of Emotional Intelligence originally popularised by Daniel Goleman includes these five basic competencies. For each competency we can identify areas of NLP which help to develop these skills:

Competence Definition NLP Patterns and Concepts
Self-Awareness Knowing ourselves and what we are feeling in the moment Trance
Beliefs
Meta-Model
First Position
Rep Systems
Rapport with Unconscious Mind
Self-Regulation Being able to manage our emotions so they help rather than hinder the task at hand Anchoring
Submodalities
‘Phobia Cure’
Swish Pattern
Physiology of Excellence
Motivation Using our deepest preferences to move us towards our goals Well-formed Outcomes
Chunking
Strategies
Values
Empathy Recognising emotions in others Sensory Acuity

Second position
Eye Patterns
Social Skills Handling emotions in relationships; persuasion; negotiation; teamwork Pacing and Leading
Meta-Programs
Sensory Language

Perceptual Positions

NLP takes this a stage further with a growing body of patterns for learning what we need to learn from emotions at the unconscious level, allowing us to make life-changing shifts rapidly and gracefully. This is close to Danah Zohar’s concept of “Spiritual Intelligence”.

Emotional Learning and Transformation Learning what we need to learn from emotions, allowing transformation of emotions and self. This is also the realm of ‘meaning’. Timeline emotional clearing
Core Transformation
Parts integration
