The Pursuit of Excellence
NLP is one of the most significant advances in human behavioural change technology achieved in the modern world.
It is the process of modelling excellence and using these models to ‘train’ other people to ‘wear’ the excellence.
It can help you to move from the position of success in life through to true personal excellence. Having achieved this for yourself you can, using NLP training, assist other people to adjust their internal programming so they too can achieve their true potential or personal excellence.
So what is NLP?
Neuro Linguistic Programming is the study and subsequent modelling of excellence. By studying the structure of how people do things well, you can model this excellence and enhance your own life. After taking an NLP training you can even teach it to others. It requires an attitude of curiosity, exploration and experimentation on the part of the person doing the modelling. It is sometimes called the study of the structure of excellence.
The methodology of NLP is that of modelling.
Modelling is the process of highlighting the results of what has been achieved by a successful person, identifying the essential processes that lead to that result, and ignoring the idiosyncratic or irrelevant parts of the process. The result of this modelling process is the development of tools and techniques that empower a person to achieve greater success in all areas of life.
NLP can be applied to personal well-being, business,health, counselling, therapy, relationships, sport, training,education, negotiation, leadership, presentation skills and goal setting. There are no limits. It has been used in the fields of psychology, linguistics, business communication, training and education for over 25 years.
The name Neuro Linguistic Programming is in itself an accurate description of the science/art of NLP:
Neuro refers to the way the human neurology processes information about personal experience received from the five senses:
- What you see (Visual) of an experience
- What you hear (Auditory) of that experience
- What you feel (Kinaesthetic) of that experience
- What you smell (Olfactory) of that experience and
- What you taste (Gustatory) of that experience
Linguistic refers to the verbal and non-verbal language, by which neural representations are coded and given meaning.
This coding affects all communication and behaviour. It affects how people learn and how they experience the world around them. It is the key to reaching goals and achieving excellence.
This coding process includes:
- Words (Self Talk)
Programming refers to the ability to discover and utilise the mind’s internal strategies or programmes in order to achieve specific and desired outcomes. These programmes operate within the neurology and contain all the communications people make to themselves and to others.
NLP is the process of understanding how the brain operates in achieving goals and outcomes and applying this knowledge in suitable situations. It is a means by which people reliably achieve goals and communicate more effectively.
NLP is understanding and using the language of the mind to consistently achieve specific and desired outcomes for ourselves and others.
The History of NLP
NLP by definition:
Is a process of modelling. Its history is therefore an amalgam of the work of excellent practitioners of human change processes. We are indebted to the originators of NLP, Richard Bandler, John Grinder and others, for selecting, examining and distilling this knowledge into a useable form so that we can continue to model and refine the work of ‘masters of excellence’. We are also indebted to all those who have subsequently developed NLP and whose work forms the basis of current NLP. Included amongst this vast list of NLP developers are Richard Bandler (Sub modalities), Tad James (Time Line Therapy™), Connirae Andreas Tamara Andreas (Core Transformation).
