Abbreviations make me curious…What is NLP all about?
NLP is short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. This "programming" is a set of communication and thinking skills used by people all over the world.
In 1975, a mathematician and a linguist asked a very powerful question. He wondered if you could study people with a very highly developed skill and discover a way to transfer that skill to others. As Richard Bandler and John Grinder explored this question, they developed NLP. Their earliest models of excellence were hypnotist Milton Erickson, family therapist Virginia Satir, and Gestalt therapist Fritz Perls. Bandler and Grinder found that genius is transportable -- they were able to teach others to be as highly effective as these models.
They named their techniques Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro refers to the brain and nervous system, which is powered by sensory input -- what we see, hear, feel, smell and taste. Linguistic refers to language, the "packaging" for our thoughts. Programming is the arrangement and sequencing of data.
This excavation of excellence continues today, and now you can be a part of it through NLP coaching, training, home study courses and certification classes.
What makes NLP worth learning?
Three of the greatest challenges of being human are:
NLP will give you techniques to help you to access all of your resources, any time you need them, and develop understanding and rapport with others. NIP techniques work in harmony with your own beliefs and preferences and give you powerful tools to change your behavior. Come to you senses and know your own mind!
- Understanding ourselves
- Understanding others
- Making ourselves understood by others.
Awareness of how you use your senses is at the heart of NLP. Every person has representational systems -- patterns they use to take in data, give it meaning, and recall information. All people take in information through the senses. What you may not know consciously is that you prefer one set of sensory input over the others. (This doesn't mean you don't use your other senses too -- but one sense is probably your "lead.")
Visual people mentally create pictures and store and retrieve information as pictures.
Auditory people enjoy constant internal monologues -- they learn and access information by sound.
Kinesthetic people feel (by touching and through emotions) and store and retrieve information that way.
These are the most common preferences, or in NLP-speak, "modalities".
We reveal our preferences by our choice of language, how quickly we speak, the voice range/tone, the location of the breathing (high in the chest vs. low in the chest) and the movement of our eyes.
