NLP is behavior ... characterized by a sense of curiosity, adventure, and a desire to acquire new skills needed to understand the types of communication that drive the people around us. NLP is a rare opportunity for self-improvement.
NLP is a methodology ... based on the principle that each behavior has a structure and that this structure can be extracted, learned and even altered. The guiding principle of this method is to know what is useful and effective.
NLP is a technology ... that allows us to organize information and perceptions in order to achieve results that were considered impossible in the past.
Neuro-linguistic programming explores the structure of subjective life experience and what we can derive from it. At the core of NLP is the understanding that effective thought strategies can be identified, analyzed and used by people as they want.
NLP is the product of many years of research by Richard Bandler and John Grinder on behavioral and language elements that allowed psychotherapists from various schools such as Friedrich Pearls, Milton Erickson and Virginia Sathir to achieve consistently positive results.
These results are based on the extraction of specific and reproducible behavioral strategies and language structures.
NLP is designed to help us better understand how communication, verbal and non-verbal, affects the human brain.
As a result, NLP offers us opportunities not only to communicate better with others but also to learn to control some of the neurological processes that are mistakenly considered "automated".
The creator of NLP defines this concept in a brilliant way:
"One of the most important things people need to understand about the science I've dedicated my life to is that it's not a therapy or a business - it's freedom." Richard Bandler
