The Map is not the Territory


NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, enables you to achieve personal goals more quickly and effectively than ever before. In other words, you can do more of what you want, get more, know more, and, especially, be what you want.

"NLP is an attitude and a methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques" - Richard Bandler

NLP is about communication

One of the principles of NLP is that we are always communicating and a very large proportion of our communication is other than words. NLP provides practical tools for becoming highly skilled communicators.

NLP is about language

Language affects how we think and respond. The very process of converting experience into language requires that we condense, distort, and summarise how we perceive the world. NLP provides questions and patterns to make communication more as we intend. NLP teaches us to understand how language affects us through implicit and embedded assumptions.

NLP is about modelling excellence

NLP processes/strategies are a result of discovering how experts or excellent leaders do what they do so well; it is then possible to teach these skills to others. Modelling skills, based on detailed observations and careful questions around beliefs and values, are the key to competence in NLP Learning the specific components of how others do something well will provide you with new options and accelerated learning.

NLP is about mastering your mind

NLP describes, in very precise terms, the images, sounds, and feelings that make up our inner and outer world. How do we know what we know? How do we do what we do? For example, how do you know that a pleasant memory is pleasant? How do you know when to feel scared or happy at certain times? How do you like or dislike something? How do you learn a subject easily, or not? NLP provides us with the equivalent of a user's manual for our brain - NLP techniques demonstrate how we `code' our experience. When we understand the specific ways that our brains make distinctions, then it is easier to make changes, to learn and to communicate effectively.

NLP is the study of internal experience

NLP is a tool to calibrate and understand how an individual makes sense of the world. NLP studies individuals' experiences: how our thoughts, actions and feelings work together to produce our experience. It does NOT assume that we all do this the same way. It does NOT produce formulae for body language or even eye movements without understanding the individual. In NLP we know that each person has a unique style of learning, perceiving and responding to the world. NLP is inherently respectful of differences.

NLP has a wide range of practical applications in business (e.g. management, personnel, sales, consulting), training and development, education, law, medicine, health, farming, writing and the arts, sports, parenting, hobbies and personal development - anywhere communicating and excelling are important. The more you are interested in communication, personal effectiveness and development - the more NLP has to offer.
