Technologies of Learning

How Technologies of
Accelerated Learning
Can Help You
and Your Organization


When change is really needed, how can it actually happen?

During the last 30 years, I have developed the specific accelerated learning methods used in Values Based Leadership® (or VBL), and my other services for organizational change. To find out more about these technologies of accelerated learning, get the Nightingale-Conant audio recording series and book, NLP: The New Technology of Achievement, a book I co-authored with other NLP trainers and developers.

My work as an organizational change agent uses neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and other technologies of accelerated learning to assist you in activating and developing your leadership capabilities. Below are some of the specific methods that I use:

 • The Learning Community—We'll become a learning community . . . a kind of village for enhancing leadership, communication and organnizational life in an enjoyable way. As the community spirit develops, learning accelerates.

 • Group Conversations—Participants engage in open and honest group conversations. During this process, participants contribute insights for applying what they are learning. Subjects for these group conversations include how to improve products, services, organizational culture, relationships, innovation, creativity, fairness, market share, revenues, and many other topics.

 • Live Skill Demonstrations—Kelly demonstrates, on the spot, powerful and effective skills, and how to use them in everyday situations.

 • Structured Mental Exercises—Through structured mental exercises you'll expand your thinking and develop the demonstrated leadership capabilities and transfer them into your day-to-day work situations.

 • Structured Story-telling—Participants tell stories about what they value and do not value. Through this process, participants learn what they value and do not value in common; what they find to be healthy and unhealthy, and what kind of future they do not want and what kind they do want.

 • Guided Inner Journeys—Much like a daydream with a purpose, in these exercises you explore your own inner world and pinpoint opportunities to activate and develop your own leadership capabilities.

 • Interactional Simulations—To prepare for actual leadership situations that you'll encounter, you will engage in realistic simulations so you can rehearse your inner and outer leadership skills. That way, in the real world, your new skills can emerge naturally and appropriately.

 • Graphical Facilitation—Kelly uses graphical facilitation to create images of the ideas and ideals of organizations so his client organizations and their teams can chart paths to bring about new futures for themselves.
