In NLP Meta Programs are a process by which one sorts through multiple generalizations simultaneously. As such, Meta Programs control how and when a person will engage in any set of strategies in a given context.
Let me make a metaphor; In Neuro-Linguisitic Programming we have the programming part. Basically we model through the Meta Model and use all kind of useful skills to reach our goal. Now, a computer can be programmed. In sense of Meta Programs and a computer program Meta Programs are programs that writes or manipulate other programs as data, or does the work at runtime that would otherwise be done at compile time.
In relation to Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a Meta Program is thinking pattern which determines what information a person takes note of and what information they screen out.
As a result, NLP Meta programs helps you understand how people sort and make sense of the world. They also help you understand your own values, beliefs and behaviors.
Remember that the outcome of NLP Meta Programs are different per happening, different per person and even different per place and time.
In addition, it’s not this or that, it’s a spectrum of possibilities.
Last but not least, if you have a way of processing the world that is limiting your success, find a way to consciously adapt it. Identifying your own meta-programs you use is a start. Once you have awareness, you can see how this shows up and what you have to change to use it for the better than you were before.
in which way and which sense. It helps yourself adapting new behaviors to improve communication, thinking and taking action.
Finally, it is not important to know all the technical names. Therefore learn to use this information by heart. It is much better to be a good coach than showing-off how good you are in all the technical terms.
