WHAT IS NLP?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming was developed in the late 70’s by a mathematician called Richard Bandler and a linguist, John Grinder. While they were involved in a study of people who were excellent communicators and catalysts of personal change in others, they asked themselves :“What makes the difference between someone who is merely competent at something and someone who excels at the same skills?”

The answer to this question produced a model to help us understand how we perceive the world and organize our thinking, skills, feeling and behavior. NLP as a set of guiding principles, attitudes and techniques. It can be used remedially to help you get more out of life. It can help to uncover or change whatever is holding you back. It can be used productively to help you make far-reaching positive changes beyond the original problem. NLP also provides the tools to make excellence more easily attainable; because if you are achieving excellence yourself it can be modeled, developed and used to teach others
