NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro refers to your neurology; Linguistic refers to language; programming refers to how that neural language functions.
NLP is a set of tools which can be used to facilitate powerful, quick and long lasting change in both individuals and organisations. It is an extremely flexible tool kit and can used for a variety of different issues.
NLP encompasses ways to help people to utilise knowledge for quick and effective achievement of personal goals, establishing better relationships and continuing the never-ending process of self-development. Additionally, NLP principles and techniques are a tremendous boost in dealing with problematic situations that inevitably arise as we live our life. In particular, NLP breaks down limiting patterns of behaviour that so often adversely influence our actions and reactions. It is this program of habitual undesirable behaviour that needs replacement using the techniques that are available in neuro-linguistic programming.
Among the many things that NLP enables us to do are to:
» Build high quality personal relationships with those whom we come into contact with in our everyday living. Having a close rapport with spouse, family, clients, customers and work colleagues will prove mutually advantageous.
» Exercise control over our emotions so that we can effectively manage our thoughts and feelings. Controlling the way we feel raises our confidence level in whatever we attempt to do, and reinforce the tendency to perform at our best at all times.
» Introduce greater flexibility which leads to increased choices and more influence over events in our life, and creative ways to solve problems.
» Develop effective ways to communicate taking into account our sensitivity to ourselves and others, and increase our persuasive skills.
» Set desired outcomes for ourselves and for our business, and maximise our chances of achieving them.
