An Online Course In Investigative Journalism Using Tools From The NLP Communication Model
Are you a sheep or are you a wolf? That is to say do you put your trust in the mainstream media narrative or do you like to ask a few questions and do a bit of your own research to get to the truth of the matter?
Should you just believe what they taught you at school or are teaching you at school and university? Should you just believe what your parents told you or are telling you? Should you just believe what you see on TV and in Hollywood movies? Should you just believe what you see and read on your favourite social media platform? Or should you do a bit of fact checking? And if you like to do a bit of fact checking how do you know with a fair degree of certainty that you have found the truth? Challenging questions, heh?
So if I could give you a set of linguistic tools to help you challenge everything for the truth, would you be interested in that? Are you willing to take the risk and uncover the truth on any topic that interests you? And maybe at this point I need to define truth for some of you. By truth I mean facts not relative truth, not subjectivity, not feelings – but just good old sensory based facts. Now hopefully I have stimulated your curiosity but remember the proverb, ‘curiosity killed the cat’. So take care because once your curiosity is stimulated there is no going back.
So how do we do this? How do we uncover the truth? We do it by using some of the tools given to us by the NLP Communication Model. What I did was to combine some of the NLP tools into a format which I call the NLP Peace Mapping Model.
I did this because I wanted a way to prevent myself from hooking into a conversation and getting into an argument. I wanted a way to keep myself in a state of curiosity and fascination such that there was always another question to ask. When you do this it delays you from forming a judgement – which is a very good idea sometimes. So let’s get into this.
Some years ago I watched an episode of Q&A (Question & Answer) on the ABC in Australia and I was fascinated not by the quality of the conversation but by the lack of communication. A member of the audience asked a specific question. One of the panel members was given a few minutes to answer. Typically the panel member chunked up to a higher level of abstraction and made broad sweeping statements. Even though the question was not answered with any degree of clarity, what I found fascinating was that the audience clapped with enthusiasm. If that was genuine applause then the only explanation can be that they were all in a trance – they were all hallucinating. So the purpose of the NLP Peace Mapping Model is to show you how to come out of trance and how to bring others out of trance.
One of the ways that we do that is by using the NLP Meta Model. The Meta Model is a linguistic tool that gives you a framework that prompts you to ask questions that help you to gather high quality information. That is, to gain a clearer understanding of what the other person has said and means by their communication.
My dream is for the NLP Meta Model to be taught in every school in every country around the world. It will never happen of course. What government would want to educate their children in how to challenge their dogma?
But what if you had language skills to hold politicians and bureaucrats accountable? What if politicians could learn to communicate with greater clarity? Do you think that might reduce conflict and promote greater harmony? What if you, the individual, could learn to decipher what you see on television and what you read in print? What if you could express yourself more clearly? Do you think that would help you get a better job, and have better relationships with employers, co-workers, employees, friends, family and lovers? If you could express yourself more clearly do you think that might help you to build a better world for yourself and others? So where do you start?
A good place to start is with the NLP Peace Mapping Model which gives you a way to map out a conversation, get on the same page and track the conversation such that all those involved may gain a greater understanding in why people think and act the way that they do.
In version 1.0 there are twenty four components.
1. Topic & Focus
9. Perceptual Positions
17. Metaphor and Analogy
I got the inspiration for the NLP Peace Mapping Model from Robert Dilts Sleight of Mouth Model (SOM) which was later modified by Dr L. Michael Hall (NeuroSemantics) to become the Mind Lines Model. There is one limitation, for me, with these models in that you have to start with a complex equivalence. That is to say you take what someone says and rephrase it in the form of a complex equivalence where A=B. For example, "Are you saying that A means B?" I found this to be a limitation so to loosen it up for the purpose of a ferocious conversation I start with an image in my mind of a grid – from the Hierarchy of Ideas by Dr Tad James.
So you imagine you have this grid where you can abstract up to the big picture and down to the details - and you can move from side to side to explore different subject matter. Also by moving side to side you can bring in time so as you move to the left you explore the past – and as you move to the right you explore the future – and present is the central starting point in the middle.
On top of this grid you place the Mind Lines Model. Then around all of this you place all of your other NLP communication tools.
At this present time with misinformation and disinformation (black propaganda) rampant on the Internet it is more important than ever to learn the tools of investigative journalism.
The NLP Peace Mapping Course gives you the tools to skill yourself up and become a first class Investigative Journalist. How will you know when you have become a first class investigative journalist? When you discover uncomfortable truths that challenge the mainstream media narrative.
