This months Pegasus NLP Newsletter arose out of observing the differing approaches and styles of different NLP Core Skills groups when doing the Spiders Web challenge on the Low Ropes course – and afterwards reviewing their experience with them.
The Spiders Web challenge is web a made of light rope and is about 2 m square. The challenge is to get a group 6-9 people through the web without touching the ropes and only allowing one person to go through each hole.
This means that the activity does requires a degree of careful planning.
And most groups, at this stage, tend to polarise into two camps: the let’s plan this carefully and the let’s just get on with it! groups – something which, when they are later using NLP to review and learn from their Ropes’ experiences, produces some hilarity and lots of personal insights!
The newsletter explores how neither approach is the absolute right one – but that the let’s just do it approach tends to produce (1) more failures and therefore (2) more successes and definitely (3) more learning and experience.
