Anchoring Excellence, Silliness and Fun

View descriptionShare

Neil delves into the concept of anchoring in NLP and its profound impact on teaching and learning. Neil shares his personal experience of using anchors to access his optimal teaching state instantly. He explains the process of building anchors step by step and encourages listeners to try anchoring for themselves!


  • The concept of state, as propounded by the founders of NLP, refers to the emotional, mental, and physiological condition of an individual at any given moment.

  • Managing one's state and the state of students can be a game-changer in teaching business or any other setting.

  • Building anchors can help in accessing desired qualities or skills at will by triggering a specific state.

  • Anchors can be set on the body or even on physical objects or places, depending on individual preference.

  • By using the right kind of anchor, individuals can enter a special state designed for themselves, leading to increased confidence and effectiveness in their work.


"Managing your state and the state of your students can be a game changer in your teaching business, or in pretty much any other setting from what I see."

"I hit that button and it's like, boom! I feel absolutely unstoppable. I know I'm going to help my students. I know we're going to have fun." 

"I think this is one of the reasons I still get fired up to teach Even after 25 years." 

"I've learned to anchor myself into my own optimal teaching state in a matter of seconds on cue and completely at will." 

"Every time now, he needs the courage to be honest, he taps the tattoo and he triggers his own anchor."
