Linguistics of Productivity-Course Overview AKA: Living a Life of Joy & Meaning
This specialized training provides tools to adjust use of language to achieve agreed-to goals. To learn the basic material which covers the science of a human being, students participate in sessions as identified by Leah through a 'listing'.
An alternative is to engage with me on an incidental basis for turning around emergent concerns, coaching, and problem solving. An example of a recent success is a student who in two sessions, about four hours total, experienced significant change which allowed her to travel via bicycle across the USA - from California/Pacific Coast to Florida/Atlantic Coast. This made for a significant success in her life as well as having meaningful experiences with her husband as they traveled together.
In general, students report less stress, better control of their lives, more happiness, and improved decision-making. Folks also tell of improved humor, clearer priorities, risk-taking, and getting more done while reducing their effort.
The approach is based on what is reliable - what can be kept going day in and day out through thick and thin.
Listings * What differences the student is looking to be delivered as outcomes of the training.
Basic Orientation * Language as an Environment * Language as Maps * Life Strategies/Modes: Exceptionality vs. Average Person * Difference Making as Meaning * Paradigms as Tools * Species & Embarrassment Paradigms
Language - yours, theirs, ours * Human Act & Linked Chain Paradigms * Internal Language Control * Phantom Language * Saying NO! * Intuition & Risk Taking

The Fine Art of Caring * Appreciation Processes * In & Out-of Control Love * Intentional Production of Appreciation
Experiments you might attempt - replace the word 'right' with correct and 'wrong' with incorrect - see if it makes a change in your physical reaction. Drop use of generalizations - for example use many instead of all, often instead of always, and frequently instead of never. Let me know what results you get - of what questions you have regarding my suggestions. !
From this approach there are four genuine obstructions in a person's life. These are 'exceptionality', 'phantom language', 'symptoms', and 'exchange relations'. Each of these are dealt with as part of a human system and the paradigms and codes for learning productive responses are learned by the fourth training session. ('These terms are used in a technical sense'.)
