The study consisted of semistructured interviews with six goalkeepers in the top two divisions of English football and four goalkeeping coaches in the top division. The interviewees were asked questions on each of the five areas, plus some more general questions, to explain both the importance of each of the five areas and the processes that they followed in dealing with the five areas. As Corbin and Strauss , pp. There is always something new to discover. If everything was known about a topic beforehand, there is no need for a qualitative study.
The author. Results of the Study The study not only shows that each of these five areas are extremely important aspects of mental strength, it offers insights into the mental processes that the goalkeepers undertake to remain mentally strong and links them to concepts and techniques within NLP, in particular demonstrating a link with a concept in NLP known as The Principles for Success Lazarus, , p.

Book Review: Neuro-Linguistic Programming: A Critical Appreciation for Managers and Developers
London, CollinsWillow. Jankowicz, A. London, Thomson Learning. Lazarus, J. Richmond, Surrey, Crimson Publishing. Newman, M. Author: Susie Linder-Pelz. Abstract In the field of coaching there is much discussion about the skills and competencies valued by clients Grant and about the need for trainers to understand which coach behaviours have impact and how they interact Passmore and Gibbes Various coaching bodies are developing competency frameworks, ethical guidelines and benchmarks for best practice, including the use of professional supervision Linley One of the applications of NLP modeling is as a type of benchmarking Dilts and Michael Hall has used benchmarking in the development and training of coaches since His approach to the benchmarking of coaching skills is to model both behaviours and meaning-making because his earlier work on meta states had demonstrated how it is possible to model not only behaviours but also self-reflexivity, beliefs and abstract knowledge.
So Hall has led the development and use of very specific coaching benchmarks grounded in NLP and Neuro-Semantics; these benchmarks are now used in coach training and certification in the Meta-Coaching community around the world. Videos and written materials demonstrate how these benchmarks are used to facilitate skill development but no independent studies have been carried out. The aim of the present study was to throw light on the development and use of Halls benchmarking model over a seven-year period. It addresses three research questions: 1.
How robust and trustworthy was the process Hall used in identifying the key coaching skills and their specific behavioural indicators? Malterud , Searle 2. How effective is benchmarking in developing coach competencies and improving coaching standards? Is there support for Halls hypothesis that the more often we see the behaviors of competencies in a coach, the more likely a client will evaluate the coaching to be successful in facilitating the goals of coaching?
How do coaches and trainers experience the benchmarking of their own and others skills? While the researcher is a trained Meta-Coach she has, since , only been involved in independent research and writing. This study was in part explorative and descriptive of the process of developing and implementing a new benchmarking methodology within a practitioner community and in part a qualitative evaluation study Kelly It involved analysis of documentary evidence and semi-structured interviews with a purposive sample of trainers and coaches in the practitioner community Gobo , Knox and Burkhard To address the first research question the researcher looked at Halls benchmarking project through the lens of action research Ladkin ; for question 2 she reviewed written materials.
In this paper the researcher explains her choice of methods, the steps she took in data collection and analysis, and her findings. Also, acknowledging the limitations of this research, she offers suggestions for further studies, including one that is already under way.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming: A Critical Appreciation for Managers and Developers by Paul Tosey
The decision-making strategies of project managers research results and a proposed model Author: Tim Lyons A career project manager, Tim Lyons has additionally qualified as an NLP Master Practitioner and Master Coach and recently carried out modelling research on decision-making by novice and expert project managers as part of an MA in NLP. His chosen area of study includes communications and decision-making in project environments. MD of Gestionnaire Ltd. Research questions were: 1. Do project managers use any decision-making strategies at all?
Are there common recognisable patterns in the decision-making strategies of experienced project managers? How do these compare to existing studies of decision-making? Considered by many to be a leading authority on the subject, he agreed to take part in the study, where he stressed the importance of decision-making to project management: The quality of the management of any particular project is dependent on the quality of the decision-making its all decisions theres nothing else As part of this programme material dealing with decision-making from within the NLP domain and also from the older and wider field known as Decision Theory was studied.
This yielded a set of possibly useful decision models or model elements. A study was then carried out using a small group of professional PMs currently working in construction, transportation and IT.
A Critical Appreciation for Managers and Developers
This is a questionnaire-based test devised by Belgian consultants JobEQ and is based on the NLP metaprogram model of cognitive thinking styles. It identifies a person's motivational and attitude preferences and claims to predict how a person will behave in various job types; second, a fly-on-the-wall observation during each subjects project meetings; and finally a 1-to-1 scripted interview on camera that asked subjects about how they made decisions. They were additionally asked to associate into past decision points. From this, observable strategies were elicited and compared to published methods to determine points of similarity or difference.
A conclusion reached was that many published models are not suitable for project environments some had been developed in specific fields such as the military or civil service.

It also became clear that although PMs are trained in a number of specialist areas within their domain, they do not as a rule get any training whatsoever in decision-making, and thus do not apply consistent strategies when doing so. While this does not always lead to erratic or wrong project decisions, it does mean that there is considerable scope for modelling the exemplars.
The study observed distinctions between strategies used by expert PMs compared to novices. From the conclusions of this study, the author is developing a model for decision-making in a project environment that brings together key elements of published methods and strategies observed in participants. Finally this is described as the Decision Vee Model. Bibliography Barnes, M. Project Management in a Different World. Petersburg Hartman, F. Preparing the mind for dynamic management.

What is NLP?
Abstract We present an innovative use of modelling employed as a research methodology in a pilot study seeking insight into the mechanics of a commonly-used but undifferentiated concept: work-life balance WLB. We found Symbolic Modelling  - a recent development in the field of NeuroLinguistic Programming - to be particularly suited to this kind of investigation as it allows the emergence of what is and has a natural tendency to map the provenance of each concept and nuance.
Symbolic Modelling is a metaphor-based practice, in the phenomenological tradition , that uses a questioning process called Clean Language  which seeks to elicit subjective.
