90 minutes presentation
In 1979, meta-programs came out of the research of Leslie Cameron-Bandler into "the structure of personality". In 1982 Rodger Bailey and Ross Steward created what is now known as the LAB Profile. In the meanwhile several books were written and many instruments were created, with the Inventory for Work Attitude and Motivation (iWAM) as one of the most recent ones.
The iWAM grew out of research into slow versus fast healing in the case of a Whiplash Meanwhile the instrument has been used for a PhD which studies the impact of meta-programs for medical students. On a more practical side, the iWAM is now being used for hiring, training, coaching, retention, leadership and outplacement issues by a network of NLPers in 25 countries and in more than 15 languages.
This presentation will show how meta-programs make a difference in all those areas, with research results to back things up. Walk away with a methodology to combine NLP's notion of modeling excellence with the demands of "scientific studies" and learn how to use this methodology to deliver results in the world of human resources management.
