What is NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)?

Often referred to as Magic!  If you are not using it you are loosing it!

NLP was developed in 1972 by John Grinder, the then Assistant Professor of Linguistics at the University of California, and Dr Richard Bandler, a psychology student at the same campus.

Dr Bandler and Grinder argued that the way we see the world, and the way we respond to those experiences (our behaviour) is dependent on a complex set of filters. These so called filters are, in essence, the programming language, or source code, of our brains which control our behaviour:

Neuro
All of our experience is gained from the neurological processes that govern our five senses: taste, touch, smell, sight and sound.

Linguistic
We make sense of these experiences through a set of filters, including language. The language we use can also affect the way we experience things.

Programming
Programming is a way of controlling the outcome of something. Using NLP, one can predetermine excellence by adjusting the language we use.
