One of the most challenging issues EFT practitioners face is getting EFT into organisations, if EFT does not fit with the culture or belief system of the organisation, it may be difficult to even get a foot in the door.
So, how does an EFT practitioner approach this problem ?
The first step is to look at how EFT could help the organisation achieve it’s goals better, cheaply or more efficiently. For this you need to :
(1) Find out as much as you can about the organisation
(2) Find out what it needs help with
(3) Find or develop contacts within the organisation and, most importantly
(4) Understand where they are coming from
It helps if you already have some experience/contacts in the area you are looking at helping, but this is not vital.
As EFT practitioners, we all know that EFT can do amazing things, but until you have used it yourself it all sounds too good to be true. It is important to talk about EFT in a way that sounds believable and relevant to the individual, so talk about the everyday benefits which everyone gets from EFT i.e.. stress relief, relief from anxiety, more focus etc. Be general.
Contacts are a good place to start, so talk about EFT to anyone that will listen and offer a free workshop to get your foot in the door. It may not work first time, so it may be worth offering a workshop every 6 months/year so that you are in their mind. Think of your friends who are open to EFT and whether they may be able to help you get into their organisation.
I applied online to volunteer do do EFT in a Holistic Centre at The Royal Surrey Hospital, Guildford, I had no reply. 6 months later, I met the accountant of the centre at a networking morning, she put a good word in for me, 2 months later I started volunteering there.
I am now a trusted member of the centre, get invited to events and run workshops there free of charge.
It you want to get into an organisation, it is important to use the same language that the organisation uses, i.e. companies, medical facilities, schools and health spas all have their own language, it is worth adapting your presentation to match their language. This creates rapport and helps them to feel that you understand their needs and that you can help them.
And remember, keep at it, patience and persistence pays off.
