What is Neuro-linguistic ProgrammingOriginated by John Grinder and Richard Bandler, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), is a multi-dimensional process that describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their exchange affects one’s body and behavior (programming). It helps people detect conscious and unconscious thinking and behavioral patterns in order to rewire the pathways in their brains. A cutting-edge modality, NLP is used in coaching to enhance professional development and personal performance.

In short, the NLP process assists in the development of behavioral competence and flexibility, strategic thinking and an understanding of the mental and cognitive processes behind behavior. Neuro-linguistic Programming

 Provides powerful tools and skills for communication and change

  • Establishes a system of empowering beliefs and presuppositions (what human beings are; what communication is; what the process of change is all about)
  • Encourages self-discovery (who am I and what is my mission?)
  • Provides a framework for understanding and relating to the spiritual part of human experience that goes beyond the individual
  • Focuses on competence, excellence, wisdom and vision

Having personally benefited from working with an NLP Coach, Jan Elfline, NLP Master Practitioner and Trainer, and Master Certified Coach (MCC) by the International Coach Federation (ICF) testifies, “I’ve learned to ask for what I want. I’ve taken actions and changed beliefs. It feels like it has been my own doing. It has been. My coaches have not created change for me; rather, they have been confident in my ability to create it for myself. They’ve urged me to trust my own process. And they have held the expectation that I will fulfill my own dreams.”

Working through the NLP methodology allows the coach and client to come together in identifying the often unacknowledged, unconscious beliefs that are sabotaging or holding the professional back from moving to the next steps in their career. NLP provides clients with the tools they need to reprogram these beliefs and create their individual pathway to success.
