NLP is short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, which is a proven system that guides you to find and achieve your purpose in all areas of your life.
NLP is a science that studies the relationships between the ways you think (neuro), how you communicate with yourself/others (linguistic) and your patterns of behaviour (programming).
Why is NLP so Important?
In today’s climate, corporate executives who lead with a high emotional intelligence are said to be the most successful.
NLP training can help you to develop emotional intelligence by helping you to become adept at correctly identifying and managing your emotions and the emotions of others.
And when you can identify with your own, and others emotional drivers you can better understand what influences people’s beliefs, thoughts and behaviours – ultimately ‘why’ they do what they do.
NLP techniques and approaches not only help you to understand yourself better, but they can also help to establish and maintain rapport, explore and alter negative patterns of behaviour, and radically improve your ability to communicate effectively, motivate and inspire others.
People like Bill Gates, Anthony Robbins, Tony Blair, Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Heston Blumenthal, Lily Allen, Serena Williams have used NLP for their own development and success.
What’s NLP Coaching?
NLP Coaching sessions focus on four critical themes to achieve long lasting change and they are:
Empowerment – Cause and Effect
What is Cause and Effect?
At a basic scientific level this is, quite simply, energy exchange.
Cause is the reason why something happens, and effect is what happens as a result.
If cause is the reason something happens. The effect is the thing that happens as a result of the cause, or when one event causes another to happen.
We process this in the monkey part of the brain. Once we fully comprehend it, we can take complete ownership of our own actions, and subsequent reactions. We can also begin to appreciate the energetic flow of cause and effect working within our lives.
The monkey part of your brain is also where repressed memories and unresolved negative emotions reside. If you do not take the time to acknowledge and change these, you will continue to run these old programs or limiting beliefs. The monkey brain will continue to find evidence to support whatever it is you want to focus on, whether it is something wanted or unwanted… As a result, the frustrations in your life will continue to repeat. A bit like the Bill Murray movie, Groundhog Day.
Perception is Projection – Perception is Interpretation
How we SEE the world around us is a reflection of what is going on in our inner world. What we perceive or interpret as reality we project into our environment. The gold nugget here is… if you want to change your environment – change the way you see it, change the meaning you give it and therefore change your outcome.
Stop wasting your time trying to change others, it is impossible!
What you can do, is change the way that you see things and therefore the way you behave, and this will bring you the results you desire. Simply by focusing on yourself, pausing and being present for a few minutes a day you can effect BIG changes in your world. Watch them unfold …
Neuro-transmitters – Dopamine, Curiosity and Creativity…
When exposed to a reward stimulus, your brain responds by increasing a release of the neurotransmitter dopamine that is well known for its role in motivation, pleasure and achieving goals.
Your teams will magically come up with creative ways of improving the workplace, fostering imagination and solving problems. Increasing one’s imagination creates possibilities and can enable a person to pursue and accomplish many great goals.
Creativity also increases curiosity that drives the desire to learn. It opens up the mind to unexplored paths. Can you imagine a workplace now without encouraged creativity?
Start solving your problems by encouraging creativity…
If creativity is fuelled by passion, then you need to focus on honing individual talents in order to express creativity and have your employees reach their fullest potential. A lack of such action is how employees become disengaged from any organisation. They don’t feel valued because the organisation is not using their talents and strengths; they become bored and always feel tired.
Responsibility for Change – Leadership accountability at any level
Once you understand these four key themes, then we’ll proceed to target a specific area or multiple areas where you would like to achieve your desired results.

“NLP cannot be dismissed as just another hustle. Its theoretical underpinnings represent an ambitious attempt to codify and synthesize the insights of linguistics, body language, and the study of communication systems” – Psychology Today
