NLP Explained

Neuro Linguistic Programming – is the art and science of creating human excellence. It uses pragmatic models to quantify how we process information, how we structure our thoughts and how this affects our behaviour. Applying these models enables us to take control of our mental, emotional and physical resources so we can begin to create our own destinies. But NLP is even more than this. Driven by the attitude of curiosity and the spirit of “Just Do It”, it drives people to unleash their true power and passion for living.

Excellence in Communication – requires the sender and receiver of information to be aware of their model of the world, their representation style and that the key to excellence is rapport building and flexibility of behaviour.

The Impact of your Communication style on others – everybody is different and behaves differently at times in their life. How people’s style of communication affects others determines whether or not you are perceived as being liked or disliked, so how you communicate determines how successful you are with people and therefore in whatever you do in life.

Filters – As human beings we use filters to manage the massive amount of information that we receive through our five senses. It has been estimated that we receive 2 million bits of information every second. So that we don’t get overloaded and go crazy we filter the information unconsciously before we become aware of the information consciously. We filter the information in three ways: deletion, distortion and generalization. We use our values, beliefs, Meta Programmes, decisions, language and memories to carry out the filtering process.

Modelling – is the process by which NLP was created. Bandler and Grinder modelled predominantly three models of excellence: Milton Erickson, Virginia Satir and Fritz Perls. They modelled their physiology, thought patterns and the way they structured their language. When Bandler and Grinder adopted the same physiology, thought patterns and language as the models of excellence they got the same results as the experts they had modelled. The output of the modelling projects was a collection of techniques, which we now call NLP.
