ANLP and the Association for Project Management’s (APM) Specific Interest Group for the People aspects of projects (PSIG).

Background:

Tim Lyons is a member of both ANLP and APM PSIG (People Special Interest Group) and has collaborated with ANLP to set up a joint event to bring a fresh new approach to the APM’s guidance to running project teams.  This webinar allowed the exposure of ANLP members to the chartered body that governs project management within the UK.  Tim hosted the event and was joined by the NLP expert panel which included three ANLP Members: Fiona Campbell, Jeremy Lazarus and Robbie Steinhouse.  They joined Tim in discussing how logical levels can be best used in Project Teams and Project Management  and this event was open to ANLP members free of charge.

Using logical levels to optimise team performance

Projects predominantly rely on teams, and those teams typically sit within departments, organisations, companies; these teams consist of individuals who often have trained capabilities in specific technical areas – such as risk analysis, contract management, critical path analysis, planning and delivery of technical products and services; project teams often work as a unit, and their behaviours are usually focussed on delivering outcomes; they do this within defined environments, locations, software systems, client-hosted organisations etc.

Whether they know it or not, many of these dimensions fall neatly into what we have come to know as the neurological levels, as developed by Gregory Bateson and Robert Dilts. This webinar is an opportunity to align and integrate this model with the APM’s normal approach to governance.

The webinar seeks to explore:

  • Understanding of how the neurological levels works at the level of the individual;
  • How that can be applied and built in at team level;
  • How the five or six-level model can be mapped to how the team operates;
  • How to use chunking up or down, to get better results (and crucially to avoid waste and delay);
  • Building this thinking into other parts of an organisation (particularly at identity level).

 The content has been created as a collaboration event with the ANLP and APM People SIG.

This event is suitable for professionals with an intermediate to advanced level of experience.
