Overview

Figuring out people ... we all attempt it. Being a part of society practically demands it. We each spend time every day 'mind-reading' the people we live and work with, questioning their motives, guessing at their intentions. But how effectively are we achieving this task? And do we even have ourselves figured out? In this revelatory book, Hall and Bodenhamer build upon the NLP Meta-Program model and apply it to the specific task of figuring out people. Focusing on how people function in terms of their cognitive processing (thinking), emoting (somatizing ideas into the body), speaking (languaging the self and others) and behaving (responding, relating), Figuring Out People allows us to discover not what people are, but how they work in a given situation. In recognising the processes people partake in, we can begin to figure people out in an instant, and immediately communicate with them in the most effective, productive ways.
