With all of the excitement around the upcoming NLP Mindfest I wanted to define NLP for you.
Known as “The study of the structure of subjective experience,” NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) is an extension of several sciences. Developed by Dr. John Grinder and Richard Bandler, it has its roots in linguistics, neurology, and psychology.
NLP is a model for understanding the basic processes used by all human beings to encode, transfer, guide, and modify behavior.
“Neuro” stands for the idea that neurological processes cause all behavior.
“Linguistic” refers to the way that neural processes are represented, ordered and sequenced into models and strategies through language and communication systems.
“Programming” refers to the way internal sensory systems are organized for the achievement of specific outcomes. In sum, NLP is “The New Science of Achievement” and NLP is at the core of the behavioral change component of all of our programs here at Learning Strategies, especially the Paraliminals.
During the NLP Mindfest you will hear presentations from 20 NLP experts. The presentations are free and will help you through whatever change and achievement you’re looking for in your life.
