NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) began in the early 1970s when a mathematician called Richard Bandler and linguist John Grinder asked themselves a simple but fascinating question: “What is it that makes the difference between somebody who is merely competent at any given skill, and somebody who excels at the same skill?”
This simple question engendered a model to understand how we as humans perceive the world, how we organise our thinking, feeling, skills and behaviour. It is a field that is continually innovating and developing.
NLP is essentially a model of excellence and achievement, or ‘what works’. It is a set of guiding principles, attitudes, knowledge, skills and techniques.
How will you benefit from discovering more about NLP? NLP can be used remedially so that if you are not getting what you want out of life, it can enable you to uncover, change or transform what is holding you back.
NLP can also be used generatively to enable you to make far-reaching positive changes beyond the initial problem. NLP offers you some of the most powerful communication skills available. Much of our success in life depends on our ability to communicate effectively – NLP will show you how.
We are often told that our brain is the most amazing computer on the planet – but nobody ever gave us an instruction manual on how to use it. NLP offers you that information, enabling you to take more control over your thoughts, feelings action and life.
NLP offers the tools to make excellence more easily attainable because if someone is achieving excellence in any field it can be modelled detailed, replicated and taught to others.
Finally, NLP offers many people a doorway to something far deeper. Once you know more about how you, as a human being work, you can use NLP to answer some truly meaningful questions, to help you more fully understand your mission in life and some of the answers to true happiness and fulfilment.
