Show Notes for Episode 168

  • We're on Club House now! Check us out on Mondays at Noon Eastern Standard Time!
  • Don't take notes if your client has a fear of pieces of paper...
  • Don't go into sessions with a plan! That's because no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy...
  • A cheat sheet can be a safety blanket, sort of like Linus on Charlie Brown...
  • Mike's doctor was smart. He gave him a placebo so he could go onstage...
  • When you get the knack, you begin to trust your own unconscious mind!
  • Harvey Specter's hands are always empty, which is awesome! 
  • Go in with a full toolbox rather than a plan!
  • Hypnotic scripts are training wheels and good for study, but don't read them AT a person!
  • If you trust your unconscious to run the therapy, can't you trust it to select the therapy too?
  • Mike tells the story of fixing pseudo-heart attacks - but not the way he planned...
  • Let's talk about Exit Strategies!
  • When the meeting is over, you need a way to get out!
  • In person, just stand up! It breaks state immediately!
  • The imaginary phone-call is a great way to end a conversation as in "Give me two minutes..."
  • You can start your meeting with an open notebook. Then close it firmly to end things!
  • Build rapport. Then when you break rapport, the meeting is over!
  • Back away from the screen to break Zoom and Skype calls...
