4 Different Slants on The Naked Leader FGS – 3 of 4 – Know what you have to do…
Thank you for the many comments and thoughts on the Formula for Guaranteed Success – they come in via Twitter, Email and of course from our Business Partners.
This is the third of 4 weeks when I cover different takes on the FGS with a practical way of applying it in our personal lives, our careers and in our organisations.

This week – Know what you have to do to get to where you want to go
As many of you will know, we are always looking for very fast how-tos in Naked Leader, which always work.
For many years there has been one key answer to this question:
“What is the fastest way to make any change in your life?”
Naked Leader (from Neuro Linguistic Programming) – ‘Act as-if’ that change has already been made.
Sarah Nelmes from one of our Client Business Partners, answered that question very differently. She said:
“When you have to”
Yes, when the pain of not choosing to change is so massive, and/or the pleasure of choosing to change is equally massive, that you simply know you must make a different choice.
Taking that one stage further, and combining the now two fastest ways…
If there is something you really want to change in your life, and you haven’t done anything about it so far, it could be that the pain and pleasure in reality have not reached the ‘when you have to’ stage.
So, pretend they have. Our minds cannot tell the difference between something that happens in reality, and something we imagine with emotional intensity, and so when you ‘act as-if’ the pain not to choose to change is such agony, and the pleasure of choosing to change is so wonderful…you will do it.
Thank you Sarah for combining a very powerful NLP technique with your own, spontaneous outburst in a leadership session at Watford Community Housing Trust.
With my love and best wishes
