Your Brilliant Mind - The Psychology Of Perception
Because most managers are keen to understand what makes people ‘tick’, so that they can lead them more effectively, there are plenty of books and courses on psychology for business. You might have some of them on your own bookshelves.
But the fact that you’re reading this suggests that you still have questions in your mind about why people behave the way they do and what you do about it.
Because most managers are busy, I’ve designed this on-line course in 8 easy-to-digest modules that you can work through in 15 minutes each. Each module includes a video that you can watch as many times as you want and some questions to help you check your understanding.
Each module also includes a question for you to mull over as you face the day. A question that will help you find the relevance for you in what you have discovered.
If you want to experience a bit of the theory of NLP before you plunge into a live training programme, ‘Your Brilliant Mind’ is a great place to start.
How it works
The entire programme is based on the ‘Brilliant Minds NLP Language and Communication Model’, developed from numerous sources, to show how perception becomes reality.
‘You Brilliant Mind’ explores the model in detail, just as we do at the beginning of any Brilliant Minds NLP training programme.
In each module there is a brief video for you to watch of me teaching that part of the model.
Then there are questions to help you check your understanding, plus a thought to carry with you through the day to get clear on the relevance of the topic for your particular situation.
This self study course consists of 8 modules in total and you can work through each one in just 15 minutes. I recommend you take one module a day. Then by the end of the week you’ll have much more confidence, you’ll know what makes people tick and your conversations will be more productive. Not to mention that your meetings will be less stressful and more decisive. You’ll begin to see the keys to influencing senior stakeholders.
How real is reality?
Fundamental to NLP is the idea of ‘subjective reality’. It means that each of us views the world in a slightly different way. The reason is – there’s so much going on in the world around us that our senses and brains have to filter the incoming information to avoid total overwhelm.
The way you filter information is dependent on your personality, your past experiences and on your beliefs and values. It can even be affected by the language you speak!
This filtering of information is the source of each person’s perception of reality. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying ‘Perception is Reality’, haven’t you?
Well, if you want to communicate effectively with colleagues, manage your team to success and maintain your own health and sanity at the same time, do you think it might help to have an understanding of the perceptions that are other people’s reality?

Why learn about the psychology of perception?
Of all the topics you could learn about to improve your results at work and in your personal life, the psychology of perception probably isn’t top of your list. But it should be!
Understanding what makes people tick so you know how to manage them better is the route to take if you want to achieve the kind of success and results you desire. Knowing why people behave the way they do and what you do about it really is the key.
