How can you Love the Life you have into the Life you Want
Many of us have learned to strive for more, for bigger and better lives, and for the special privileges that come with status, wealth, or fame. This has certainly driven people to improve their conditions in life and many of us now actually live in luxury compared to those who lived in the past. Unfortunately, this increase in worldly comforts often correlates with less happiness. When striving becomes our default mode of functioning it often manifest as a dissatisfaction with what is, with what we have, and with anything untoward that happens to us. This sharp contrast between where we “should be” and where we are in life has been amplified by the current Covid pandemic. Even if we arrive where we want to be, or find ourselves momentarily close to it, we often do not know how to appreciate it because we have practiced, for most of our lives, the art of dissatisfaction. We’ve never learned how to love the life we have into the life we want.Outline of topics:

The Art of Empathy
In this 90-minute presentation, we will examine empathy as a valuable skill for NLP practitioners in many settings, including individual coaching, business consulting, and therapeutic relationships.
In addition to defining empathy and providing examples of what empathy looks like in practice, we will lead a range of exercises that help develop empathy, help practitioners demonstrate empathy, and help with applying empathy to business practices that include marketing and leadership. Those exercises include：
We will also discuss observed differences in empathy in Eastern and Western societies, and consider ways of obtaining “the best of both worlds” in developing and expressing empathy.

15 Ways with Words to make a Positive Difference
The field of NLP has many linguistic tools to help people develop their communication and explore their critical thinking – also to help create a vibrant shared world with others and bring new possibilities to any situation.Through artful questions, rapportful repetitions, and shifting linguistic frames, we can change the way that we see and understand a situation. In this special 15th Anniversary celebration online session for EMR I would like to share with you 15 powerful and practical tools and ideas to enhance your everyday communication – how you talk to others, and how you talk to yourself. These are tools that are helpful to coaches, trainers, managers and leaders to help bring out the best in people and solve problems together.I will draw on models from NLP such as the Meta-Model and the Reframing model called ‘Sleight of Mouth’. These models go to the heart of how language works to produce and change our reality. We will explore how to play with words to transform meaning and beliefs in a conversational way – so we can have a positive and creative influence on any situation.
