Welcome to the world of Neuro Linguistic Programming


What is NLP?

  • "Neuro" stands for Brain. "Linguistic" stands for Language. "Programming" stands for the many strategies that we run to talk to our brain. NLP is the study of strategies through which we run our brain. In other words, it is a precise science of achievement and a technology of Success.
  • NLP was founded by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s. It was done by studying successful therapists and the methods they used. The kind of language they used with their patients, was the main source of the development of NLP (See Representational Systems and Submodalities)
  • NLP is not about "truth". There is no rights or wrongs, good or bad in NLP. NLP is about what works and what is useful. (More...)
  • NLP is not about your past. It is not about digging into your past. It is about your present experience.
  • NLP focuses more on the process, rather than the content.
  • NLP techniques become rituals for some people. There is nothing wrong about this. But there are certain principles (or presuppositions) of NLP which when not kept in mind would make NLP "just another tool".
  • You cannot trick people into changing (More...)
  • Modeling is the core of NLP and NLP has developed basically through Modeling. Richard Bandler and John Grinder formulated NLP by modeling successful therapists like Milton Erickson and Virgina Sattire.
