NLP’s Logical Levels of Change: (aka Neurological Levels)

We perceive the world, learn, and change at different levels. Robert Dilts developed a simple model of these levels to help us understand how change happens – and why it sometimes does not. He referred to them as neurological levels – or also as logical levels.

We react to our surroundings and create an impact on those surroundings and the people who inhabit them. This is the ‘where’ and the ‘when’ of our experience.

Deliberate or reflexive, and they include the thoughts we calculate. This is the ‘what’ of our experience.

The skills, strategies, and knowledge we have. This is the ‘how’ of our experience.

The things we take to be true. They both give us permission to act and also limit our choices.

The things we consider important. They dictate our choices and drive our motivation.

Your core sense of self – who you are. Dictates your values in life, your sense of purpose, and what you believe your mission is. Identity drives the ‘kind of person’ you believe you are. This is the ‘who am I’ of our experience.

Transcends your individual identity and connects you to something larger than yourself. It is the underpinning for everything you believe and do and gives meaning to your life and your choices. This is the ‘who or what else’ of our experience.

1. Consider a problem you are having or a decision you need to make. Look at it through the lenses of each of the logical levels in turn, starting with environment. What do you learn? (1 MC CPD Point)
2. When you have considered all levels, reexamine them all again, starting at purpose and working back to environment. What do you learn? (1 MC CPD Point)
