Anchor others in positive states

When you learn to anchor others, you can help people you care about find themselves in positive moments or use it at work to motivate your employees.


  1. Ask a person to remember a time when he/she was feeling powerful.
    It is often most effective if the person doesn’t know what will happen next.

  2. At the peak of the feelings, anchor him/her several times in the same state.
    Always use the same anchor, for example, a tap on the shoulder.

  3. Start talking, and in a moment of distraction, test if the anchoring has worked.
    If a person doesn’t return to the state in which you anchored them, try the exercise once again.
