NLP Reframing Examples

Pattern: Difficult makes Client feel lack of confidence.

A: This project is really difficult.

B: What’s the difficulty?

A: I don’t feel confident in it.

B: Well, I guess the more difficult it is, it can be hard to digest. And doesn’t that mean you will be more careful and meticulous?


Pattern: An unreasonable boss never takes action on feedback provided.

A: My boss is so unreasonable.

B: How so?

A: He never takes action on things that we provide feedback on.

B: “Never” is a strong word.

A: We have never heard back from him.

B: Perhaps then he’s not unreasonable, but either overwhelmed or untrained?
