What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
When Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was originally developed in the 1960's the emphasis was on modeling excellence. Richard Bandler and John Grinder, the co-developers, believed that one could observe behavior, extract its key elements, and then "install" such behavior in another person. In order to develop their theories they originally studied Virginia Satir, a renowned family therapist, Fritz Perls, the developer of Gestalt Therapy, and Dr. Milton Erickson, the "Father of American Hypnotherapy." Since then NLP has emerged as the leading-edge tool for rapid change for individuals and groups and brief therapy in the mental health arena. Further development by such leaders as Robert Dilts, Tadd James, John Overdurf, and Julie Silverthorn, have allowed NLP to further evolve into an extremely significant tool for counseling, coaching, and business consulting.
NLP offers easy-to-learn, quick techniques that allow a practitioner to improve his or her communication techniques, resolve internal conflicts, and to become more effective in just about all areas of life. For years it has been used by innovative therapists and corporations in the U.S., Europe, and throughout the world to quicken change and enhance performance. It is widely recognized for the benefits it provides for the advancement of business and human potential.
