What is NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)?

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created in the 1970s. The title refers to a stated connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”), and behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience (“programming”) and can be organized to achieve specific goals in life.

The founders of NLP, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, say that it  is capable of addressing problems such as phobias, depression, habit disorder, psychosomatic illnesses, and learning disorders.

Their stated aim was in “finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives.” Bandler and Grinder claimed that if the effective patterns of behaviour of exceptional people could be modeled then these patterns could be acquired by others. NLP has been adopted by private therapists, including hypnotherapists, and in management workshops and seminars marketed to business and government.

How do we use NLP?

We use NLP in the development of leaders, managers and their respective organisations. We teach those leaders and managers to use NLP in the development of themselves and their teams, to communicate and persuade more effectively and to use it for their own personal development.
