What is NLP?

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming.
‘Neuro’ being your brain, ‘Linguistic’ the language we use with others and how that can influence their thinking and behaviour and our own self talk and how that impacts on our results.

‘Programmes’ are all the unconscious habits we have learned so that we can operate on automatic pilot. For example we drive a car but we don’t think about what we are doing with our hands and feet.

Why should I learn NLP?

Simply put it can help you become a better person. A better leader, a better coach, a better trainer a better sales person and a better business owner.

So how do you become a better, happier, more confident you?

NLP is like a ‘user manual for your brain’ with a host of ‘Apps’ that can make you more confident and effective. NLP teaches you how to use your brain differently. Rather like having Apps on your phone you don’t use or downloading new ones to help you think and behave differently.

NLP was created by John Grinder and Richard Bandler in the 1970’s. Their goal was to discover why some people produced excellent results, and then create models to allow other people to assimilate the process. Over the years many people were modelled and a host of techniques were developed. They were joined by others and information was gathered from different sources such as Pavlov to create anchoring. John Grinder was a linguistics professor and worked with Richard to discover how some therapists used their language to solve their client’s problems.

Now we don’t want to waste your time giving you a long historical account of NLP. We would prefer to give you some information that you can use straight away...

So let me ask you a question.

When you are feeling good, confident and in an up beat mood do you have a better day and get more done?

I hope the answer is yes! Would you like to be in that good state more often? Well you can and here is how.

When you read a book, words trigger pictures in your mind and pictures trigger feelings. So if you read a sad story you may feel sad, whilst a happy tale makes you feel good.

So here it is a simple formula.

What you put into your mind results in either a good state which has a positive impact on your behavior or a not so good state which has a negative impact on your behavior and results.’

If a farmer plants seed of corn in their land what is going to grow out of it? That’s right corn! If the same farmer plants seeds of a poison ‘deadly night shade’ then after a few months that is what will grow.

What you put in - is what you get out - and you control what you allow in. And NLP can help teach you HOW to control what you allow in.
