Have you ever heard business people talk about Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and wondered what it is about?
Basically, NLP can be defined as an enhanced form of 'brain training'. Applied effectively, NLP enables the brain to automatically respond to real-world stimuli, situations, acknowledge aspects that can be changed to create improvements, and suggest the most practical and effective technique to do so. In other words, the adoption of basic Neuro-linguistic Programming skills can improve:
Developed in the 1970s by American psychologists Richard Bandler and John Grinder, NLP proposed the idea that a person’s cognitive, sensory, communicative, behavioural and emotional faculties can be consciously 'programmed' to achieve personal and professional excellence.
NLP is a means to unlock personal potential and improve performance. It works by removing the psychological barrier such as fear of failure that normally inhibits us from testing our abilities in situations outside our comfort zones. NLP provides the confidence to overcome beliefs that would normally limit us,and creates a 'safety net' that allows us to perform outside our perceived comfort zones, and achievemore than what we were earlier capable of. Considering that the personal performance of each employee is the bedrock of business productivity and success, when applied together with NLP helpsimprove staff confidence and morale, increases team performance and productivity and improves customer satisfaction in turn.
