NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)

For those of you interested in learning a little more about this vast subject here are a few introductory ideas and some useful resources.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a way of studying how we learn new skills, what differentiates people who excel from everyone else and most importantly, how we can learn from them!

It uses a number of models and techniques to do this and can seem very riddled with high tech jargon, however it is a very pragmatic art.

Here are a few key ideas which if they seem very obvious are no less valuable for that. It should also be pointed out that whilst NLP raided all the best 'toys' from every one else's toy-cupboard, pretty much every training program you have bee none has an element of NLP built into it.

The four principles of NLP are:-

  1. In any situation, have a clear outcome
  2. Be aware & alert enough to recognise if you are moving towards or away from your goal
  3. Be flexible enough to change your behaviour till it gets you the outcome you want
  4. Take action now

NLP makes a few presuppositions which can be very useful. Take a moment to think of a situation that you have been in recently that wasn't working for you, and check which one of these presuppositions might have helped you:-
