Technique Library ‘Neurlogical Levels’

Five levels of learning in which each level above is progressively more encompassing. Bateson. (No Reference given on the Techniques Library, it’s 1972)

Dilts (1990) took this and distinguished:

  • environmental
  • behaviour
  • skills and capabilities
  • beliefs and values
  • identity, mission and purpose

What goes at the top though ?

  • Purpose
  • Identity
  • Beliefs/Values
  • Capabilities
  • Behaviour
  • Environment

It helps direct the point of intervention; at what level is your problem?

Are you aligned at all levels?

What’s this about splitting into pairs and having people question each other?
