The Neurolinguistic Communication Profile (NCP) assessment is based on Neurolinguistic Programming, an innovative and useful model emphasisng the relationship between an individual's thinking and their communication preference and the ability to establish rapport with another person. The NCP focuses on assessing sensory-based preferences (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic) for taking in information, organising it and communicating information to others and offers insights and practical tools for communicating more flexibly and effectively with others, regardless of their preferences.
The NCP serves as a guide for establishing rapport quickly with people whose communication 'styles' differ from one's own. It can serve as a centerpiece for training on topics including management, coaching, teamwork, and sales.
• Identify personal communication preference
• Recognise communication preferences of others
• Communicate more effectively with others who communicate differently
• Discover how to increase productivity and motivation
• Learn how to exchange information more accurately
• Gain flexibility in striving to match another person's communication style
How it Works
The Neurolinguistic Communication Profile starts with a self-assessment that takes individuals approximately 20 minutes to complete. Individuals respond to 65 items relating to communication. The result is a set of scores in each of the three dimensions: Sensory Modality, Thinking Style, and Preferred Mode of Expression. Combining these results produces an Overall Communication Profile. The NCP also includes a quick assessment of rapport allowing individuals to look at communication strengths and weaknesses with another individual.
If you intend to use the Neurolinguistic Communication Profile in a classroom training session, we recommend you allow approximately 90 minutes for interpretation of scores, topic discussion, debrief, and action planning. The Facilitator Guide also offers an easy-to-follow workshop outline that expands the Neurolinguistic Communication Profile into a half-day programme.
