|Section 8: Course summary - what you have learned|
Using a coaching technique known as Symbolic Modelling, we base our courses on a set of questions known as Clean Questions, to help you to discover the patterns of thought which govern your behaviour.
When you can fully appreciate what “makes you tick” through the process of achieving and maintaining your peak performance state it becomes easier to spot and deal with the triggers which can knock you off course and recover more effectively.
You can begin the coaching process by answering these questions:
When you are in a peak performance state that’s like what?
When you are in peak performance what do other people see and hear?
When you are below peak performace that’s like what?
When you are below peak performance what do people see and hear?
When you embark on the path back to peak performance that’s like what?
When you take the path of recovery what will other people see and hear?
What help do you need to begin and complete that journey?

In recent years, Professors George Lakoff and Stephen Pinker of Berkeley and Yale have been revealing through the study of linguistics and brain scanning how the mind works. They recognise that at the core we can only make ourselves understood in the world through our use of metaphor - describing one thing in terms of another. David Grove, a pioneer in this field said:
"Metaphor is our primary processing language"
Our training courses reference their work on metaphor. Understanding these first principles will revolutionise the way you perform at peak. People who follow the process we teach believe the following to be be true:
1. People already possess all the wisdom they will ever need.
2. That wisdom is accessible through our use of metaphor.
3. With the techniques we teach we can use metaphor to create the conditions for change.
4. New insights emerge naturally as we explore the metaphors we use.
5. Change and learning is a natural by-product of the process.
6. The impact cannot be known until afterwards
To help you to get the most value from these courses it would be helpful if you could answer this question and message me with your answer.
