WHAT ON EARTH IS NLP?

 

What is NLP? 

Since the early 1970s the study of what is now known as Neuro-linguistic programming has revealed how the mind works, how people communicate with themselves and others and how they represent external and internal events to themselves.

NLP is a behavioural process - the psychology of excellence. It's about how you do things to succeed in life - not simply about how to acquire information - after all anyone can do that!

NLP is more than learning how to better communicate; it's about developing a set of attitudes and tools to manage yourself so that you can be consistently effective. 

NLP is short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming:

  • Neuro refers to neurology, our nervous system - the mental pathways our five senses take which allow us to see, hear, feel, taste and smell.

  • Linguistic refers to our language ability; how we put together words and phrases to express ourselves, as well as how our "silent language" of movement and gestures reveals our states, thinking styles and more.

  • Programming, taken from computer science, refers to the idea that our thoughts, feelings and actions are like computer software programs. When we change those programs, just as when we change or upgrade software, we immediately get positive changes in our performance. We get immediate improvements in how we think, feel, act and live.

NLP provides you with an instruction manual for the mind and thus makes it easy for you to communicate effectively and thus influence change in yourself and others. 

Why learn NLP? 

NLP was created by observing and modeling people who were exceptionally talented within the field of therapy. NLP stands for Neuro-linguistic programming. "Neuro" relating to the brain and "linguistic" refers to the language used, and how it is used. "Programming" describes the patterns and habits you create, learn and persistently follow. As we experience the world through our senses, the information is translated into thoughts/ words. The thoughts affect our physiology, emotions and behaviour which can be heightened or dampened depending on how you use language within your own brain.

Therefore, NLP is the use of effective techniques and strategies to create changes in your thinking and communication to achieve different and better results.

More and more people are realising the value of NLP in enabling them to become more effective in their chosen field. In fact, NLP techniques and models are now being used in a diverse range of areas including education, business and human resources, sport, personal development and health.

NLP is valuable in business, consulting, therapy, management, health professions, sports, parenting, creative pursuits, education, training and development, sales, negotiation, writing--anywhere communicating and excelling are important!

business1


Business

NLP techniques enhance a variety of business activities. They are often present in courses about selling, presenting and team-building. Other applications of NLP in business include, teaching people to communicate more effectively and persuasively, public speaking and presentations, detecting decision-making strategies in others, making employee training more effective by working on beliefs, practical tools for employees to achieve peak performance and boosting motivation by aligning work with values. Instant rapport.

Basic NLP skills which improve and enhance communication, rapport building, and goal setting are all immediately applicable to the business world. Specific skills for dealing with people who perceive the world differently than we do will help improve relations with peers, bosses, customers, and new prospects. In addition, many leaders and consultants in business have turned to the creative and innovative aspects of NLP for inspiration in organizational development, total quality management, team building, and strategic planning. NLP principles and skills underlie much of what is taught in negotiation seminars. Presentation skills and public speaking are an integral part of corporate life today. NLP self-management techniques, language patterns, and goal-setting are vital to effective speaking. Many of the attendees at NLP trainings tell us they have come to learn skills that will help them in their professions.

education1


Education

NLP provides a model of how we communicate with ourselves and others. NLP can used in teaching to improve the ability to impart information in ways that makes learning easier. For example, identifying natural learning styles, use of presuppositions and language patterns and eliciting states in learners that are congruent with learning.

NLP's practical applications include understanding how we learn and developing strategies for both students and teachers. Through NLP, teachers and parents gain concrete methods for helping children do well in school. Classroom teachers are incorporating key pieces of the NLP approach into their teaching methods and classroom management.

sports1


Sports

NLP is used by sport coaches to aid their clients in reaching and maintaining peak performance. Interventions include modeling and learning successful strategies from leaders in sporting fields, setting performance goals and overcoming plateaus and blocks.

health benefits


Health

NLP offers a cognitive model and practical tools that can help you improve the health of yourself and others. It is becoming widely accepted within mainstream healthcare that there is a link between our thoughts, behaviour and health. NLP practitioners who choose to work within therapy can help individuals lead more satisfying lives in a number of ways. This may include, helping individuals to change limiting beliefs, habits and behaviour, facilitating people to manage states and emotions and helping individuals to find meaning in life by setting achievable well-formed goals.

Much of the initial modeling in NLP focused on how innovative and effective therapists helped their clients change. Most of their behavior and language was beyond their conscious awareness; thus, the analysis and modeling of the therapist's techniques produced information of a highly practical nature.

The personal change work processes in NLP are unique in their scope and power. They are guided by precise language patterns and a careful systematic approach for checking the "ecology" or respectfulness of the change upon other areas in a person's life. Many highly trained therapists are finding NLP to be a highly generative and comprehensive framework for personal change. In addition, the dynamic world of NLP is continually refining existing patterns and adding new developments which help people make the changes they want. If you are in a helping profession and are seeking:
• tools for building rapport with a variety of clients,
• understanding the structure of beliefs and identity,
• to add zest to your work and increase your job satisfaction,
• new and effective ways to assist your clients to achieve rapid and lasting change, NLP has much to offer.

The applications of NLP are important both to those in the medical field and to individuals interested in good health.

In today's rapidly changing field of health care, medical professionals need more than technical abilities. They are increasingly called upon to demonstrate strong interpersonal skills and flexibility as well as abilities in the area of negotiation, business management, and conflict resolution. NLP provides these necessary skills for relating effectively and communicating clearly with patients and co-workers.
Medical professionals report that what they learn in NLP training is immediately applicable and valuable in their work.

In addition, leading-edge research in NLP today is focusing on ways of building and maintaining personal health, engaging the body's ability to heal, and defining the relationship between health and beliefs.

Considerations before doing the course

The variety of personal development programs available in the market is vast and overwhelming. How do you know which programs are right for you? What can we do to maximize the benefits of a self-improvement course? Here are three steps that I've discovered to be crucial in starting any personal development program:

Be Open-Minded

It's easy to look at a program and discard it quickly. There are so many options available that we may tend to be too critical or unintentional in our selection criteria. Remember that in life, answers don't always come from the places that we'd expect them to come from. Often, we are surprised at where we make new discoveries. So don't dismiss a book by its cover and don't dismiss a workshop because someone told you to stay away from it.

Have an Attitude of Expectation

Henry Ford said, "Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can't, you're right." I believe it is also true that, whether you think you WILL, or whether you think you WON'T, you're right. Our minds have the ability to transform our expectations into reality. You must start and complete personal development program with the attitude that it WILL make a difference for you.

Undertake Personal Responsibility

Buying a book or attending a weekend event is simply not enough. We've got to read the book, and we've got to be proactive at the event. More than that, we must do the exercises recommended to us. If a certain activity scares us, that's all the more reason to do it! In fact, let's be courageous - engage the speaker/facilitator, ask questions, and discuss with peers. We must take action and implement what we're learning. Knowledge is more like "potential" power. Knowledge is not real power until we learn to put it into action!
