Strategic Processing – The Mindset

1) Well-formed Condition / Outcome

  • What would it be that you would be looking to achieve by understanding more of what it is that I am saying?
  • How would you know?
  • What would it look / feel / sound like?
  • What way is your name structured?
  • What is learning? How is that structured?
  • How is your school day structured?

These learnings are projected out into how you form and structure yourselves!

2) Rapport / Mirror Match / Pace Pace Lead

The person who is most in rapport with themselves is most in rapport with his/her life, the model of his/her world, and the people in it. 

The person who is out of rapport with themselves, will be out of rapport with ALL others around them.


At NLP Training 4 Kids we allow you to understand the importance of being in rapport with YOURSELF first.

This self-rapport is then projected out onto the people, experiences, scenarios and situations around you.

There is nothing that is not effected by how in rapport you are with yourself. That then allows you to choose to create positively and effectively in every and all aspects of your lives.

How does Johnny see himself in another individual?


What does Johnny like about Billy which he perceives is not within himself? (Which we often do.)

Yet what Johnny sees within Billy is a projection of Johnny himself.

3) Language: Adverb, Verb, Adjective

What are these?

How can these best be placed into sentences which get the best possible results using linguistic language patterns, pre suppositions and embedded commands?


Be aware of how the words you use influence how your speech is ‘understood’.

For Example

When I say: ‘Don’t leave here today feeling good.’ What am I presupposing?
To feel good!

4) Spelling / Reading Strategies

Were there to be a word which you would be looking to spell better which is personal to you, what would that be?

And how would you spell that word better now?

With that in mind, having that new strategy in place; how would that improve your reading and writing skills at school? All the time, every time.


  • Split the word SUCCESS into 3 sections.
    • Section 1 = Red = Capital Letters
    • Section 2 = Black = Small Letters
    • Section 3 = Blue = Capital Letters



‘I am going to give you a word.  As soon as I do, look up here’
(Hold hand in their visual recall).

‘Allow an image of the word to appear and as soon as it does, look down here to get a familiar feeling.’
(Hold hand in their Kinesthetic / down and to their right hand side)

Repeat until the word is spelt easily and effortlessly.

‘Good! Now spell the word backwards.’

5) Perceptual Positions

Why would you want to have different perceptual positions on everything that you choose to do?

What would a deeper level of flexibility do for you, give you and get you?

How might it be that you could have a different understanding about what a person has said, and not said that would allow you to communicate effectively?

What if you were able to expand your thoughts beyond what you had originally conceived possible?

Changing Perceptual positions allows you to look at it from a more positive, specific perspective, which will enhance your overall outcome.
