Neuro-Linguistic Programming - The Success Formula PDF Print E-mail
NLP® is literally the science of how to most effectively communicate with your brain and nervous system to produce various behavioral results.
NLP® was created in early 70’s by Dr. Richard Bandler and Dr John Grindler, who used their combined expertise in therapy, computer modeling and linguistics to amass data from the world's most effective therapists, communicators and educators, after successfully modeling some of the most outstanding successful people in the field of sports, communications, therapy, training and education. They looked for overlapping patterns, seeking to create an empirical discipline that would provide structured guidance for those involved in making interventions in human behavior for the purpose of bringing about swift, verifiable, lasting change.
Among the presuppositions of NLP® is that success leaves clues. If anyone in the world produces a specific result, then by modeling that person’s actions, belief system and mental syntax, one should be able to approximate their results. Over the years, NLP® has been found to be very extremely beneficial in areas of: team building, effective, assertive & persuasive communication, visionary leadership, presentation skills, public speaking, teaching and training, time management, motivation and turning fear into power.
"NLP is an attitude which is an insatiable curiosity about human beings with a methodology that leaves behind it a trail of techniques." Richard Bandler (co-creator of NLP)
"The strategies, tools and techniques of NLP represent an opportunity unlike any other for the exploration of human functioning, or more precisely, that rare and valuable subset of human functioning known as genius." John Grinder (co-creator of NLP)
One of the principles of NLP is that we are always communicating and a very large proportion of our communication is non-verbal. So what are we communicating? Is what we intend to convey the same as what the listener understands? If not, how do we recognise the cues and adjust?
Research, sponsored by British Telecom, tells us that 6 out of 10 people in the UK want to be better at communicating. NLP provides practical tools for achieving highly skilled communication.
NLP is a tool to calibrate and understand how an individual makes sense of the world. NLP studies the experiences of an individual; how our thoughts, actions and feelings work together to produce our experience.
