NLP Agreement Frame

NLP Agreement Frame


Agreement Frame is where you can disagree with a person or subject matter without upsetting the apple cart, as in:

A. I appreciate, and…

B. I respect, and…

C. I agree, and…

Flexibility is important for effective communication. Avoiding resistance from others keeps others involved in what one is saying and leaves them open to new ideas. Avoiding negations like “but” and “however” in communication goes a long way toward eliminating resistance from others. The agreement frame allows one to converse with others of differing viewpoints while neither creating resistance in others nor compromising one’s own values and beliefs. This process is a form of verbal aikido, redirecting force rather than attempting to overcome it.
