3 powerful tips on how to develop skills and build competencies with cognitive hypnotic coaching

3 Actionable Steps to follow to Develop Skills and Build Competencies

Step 1: Become Self Aware


Self-Awareness refers to conscious awareness of one’s own character and feelings. If you have identified the skills and competencies you need to develop, it means that you are partially self-aware. To enhance this awareness, it is a good idea to write, what steps you need to take to develop skills that you wish to develop.

Step 2: Develop Mindfulness


The most important component of self-awareness is mindfulness. Being mindful of your actions and behaviours can help you discover what you lack and need to consciously work on. One way to develop mindfulness is to observe and note whatever you encounter on your way to building that competency.

Out of those, check what it is that you need to continue doing, start doing and stop doing. Once you have the list, it will act as a reminder to yourself to do what is desirable and to stop doing what is not.

Step 3: Use tools like NLP or Hypnosis

While mindfulness is a great tool, not everyone is able to start and stop doing things, as easily. For example, if you want to wake up early, you know you have to sleep early. But how do you even start sleeping early could be a big first step.


This is where tools like NLP and Hypnosis work like magic.

NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming helps us reprogram our minds, using different techniques. Hypnosis helps us get into a state where we can align our subconscious mind to what we consciously wish to achieve. Since all Change processes in NLP can be considered as Applied Hypnosis, integration of the two would be the best way to identify and develop new skills.

Understanding what is NLP and Hypnosis

NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming helps us reprogram our minds, using different techniques. Hypnosis helps us get into a state where we can align our subconscious mind to what we consciously wish to achieve. NLP and Hypnosis are similar because both work by reprogramming the subconscious mind.

How to develop skills and build competencies with Hypnosis and NLP?

Let me share an example with you.

Rahul was an extremely nervous public speaker. He would go up on the stage and literally freeze. In college, if he had to make a presentation, he would try all possible ways to escape it. It was so bad that he failed to get admission in MBA because he had no confidence in the group discussion round. 

Later, he discovered NLP and Hypnosis through a Cognitive Hypnotic Coach (More about that at the end of this article).

What he experienced was nothing short of a MIRACLE!

Specific Techniques to develop skills and build competencies

Using the SOFTSEA™ framework, the coach helped him define the precise outcome he was looking for and also visualize a positive future in which he could speak confidently on the stage with confidence.

Rahul was able to develop a solid action plan of what precise steps he needed to take in order to develop better presentation and speaking skills. Using metaphors and hypnotic suggestions, the coach helped Rahul enhance this visualization even further.

Emotional reconditioning with Anchoring and Levels of Transformation, helped in strengthening that confidence even more. This made Rahul feel naturally confident while speaking on stage or amongst a large group of people.

And the best part is, the changes he achieved with Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching are sustainable. That means the confidence or any other skills (tangible or intangible) that you develop stay with you forever.
