What’s Neurolinguistic Programming?
Programming (NLP), provides tools and skills for improving individual excellence through better internal dialoging and self-empowerment.
NLP, is about self-discovery, exploring identity and mission. NLP is a pragmatic school of thought – an * epistemology – that addresses the many levels involved in being human. NLP is a multi-dimensional behavioral learning process that involves strategic mission thinking and an understanding of the mental and cognitive processes behind behavior.
* The theory of knowledge, especially with regard to its methods, validity, and scope. Epistemology is the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming, is the art and science of excellence, derived, in part, from studying how top people in different fields obtain their outstanding results. These communication skills can be learned by anyone to improve their effectiveness both personally and professionally. It is directly applicable to a diverse spectrum of fields such as communications, business, sales, education and therapy
How does NLP work?
The core of NLP is ‘modeling’ – which is the practice of recognizing someone’s excellence (perhaps at selling things or being funny), finding out how they achieve that excellence, then working at replicating those results for yourself. It’s pretty obvious that we all do that. That’s how we learned to speak and do all of the other things we do so well – NLP just gives a structure to that learning.
But the ‘Field of NLP’ or FoNLP as it’s sometimes called, are ideas or tools that are the fruit that was borne from Richard Bandler and John Grinder modeling psychotherapists and hypnotherapists (Virginia Satir, Fritz Perls, Milton Erickson, Frank Farrelly and more). It includes an ever increasing range of hypotheses that do make testable claims.
