When the tools of NLP were used to study the world's most powerful persuaders, a compelling and impressive set of language patterns emerged. These patterns are called "Sleight of Mouth." Each sleight of mouth pattern is a valuable tool for persuasion. Sleight of mouth patterns help people overcome limiting beliefs, open up to new ideas and be able to find a new "spin" or "point of view." In persuasion, whether in therapy, sales or personal interaction it's vital to help people open up to what you are saying. Sleight of Mouth patterns help you do just that and they do it in what seems like a normal conversation.
Why Are They Called "Sleight Of Mouth?"
We have personally seen many, many examples of people becoming open to possibilities and overcome roadblocks due to the effective use of sleight of mouth patterns. Here are some examples from our personal experience. We've helped people...
And more. . .
Stop for a minute and think about what your life could be like if you were more persuasive... Almost any interaction with people is improved isn't it? And you can use these patterns to overcome your own self-limiting beliefs too.
Keith,I'm writing to thank you for the "Sleight of Mouth" program you created with Geoff Ronning. I can't get over how clearly you communicated these patterns.The conversational style in which you delivered the information was magic - it allowed to me truly understand how incredibly useful these patterns are. I can now easily choose a pattern, apply it with intent, and get concrete results. There's a definite difference in the speed and power with which I can help people reframe and expand their view of their worlds.So, thank you again - I look forward to listening to more of your programs, confident I'll be just as happy with the end result.

Keith, As you know, I had the good fortune to purchase your Sleight of Mouth Patterns and Covert and Conversational Hypnosis programs. In a word, they're "great" (is that two words?) After listening to the CDs and reading the manuals, I find myself naturally using these techniques in both my professional life, as well as with my family and friends. I can honestly say that new avenues of communication have been opened up to me. I look forward to training with you again as well as using more of your products.

Just got through listening SOM (Sleight of Mouth) CDs. Again, terrific! This set is a perfect companion and complement to the Covert Hypnosis course. By the way, you guys are a great double act.
I just finished listening to the full Sleight of Mouth tutorial, and just wanted to express my deepest thanks, for not just providing the information on what one must learn, but for also providing very specific information on how one can easily learn the material step by step in a methodical fashion. What separates your training from so many others is that most other training provides an overwhelming information dump, leaving it to the trainee to figure out how to parse and chunk it so it can be learned and applied, which is often no easy task.Your and Geoff's training, on the other hand, not only leads the listener through the relevant information, but then provides detailed steps for the individual so he/she can easily master it a manageable chunk at a time, ultimately learning the material effectively and thoroughly.All the great information in the world is no good if it can't be managed, and your training provides that missing link so that it can be managed effectively.I will be buying more of your stuff for sure.
