What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming?

Discussion started by Maff 7 years ago
NLP is how to use the language of the mind to consistently achieve our specific and desired outcomes. NLP is an instruction manual for the mind. 
A useful analogy would be to see the mind as a computer with a software “bug” that causes a specific and repeated unwanted response to user input. NLP in this analogy would be a software update, or “bug fix”, while the NLP Practitioner or Coach would be an IT Technician installing the new software so that the computer functions as desired by the user (the client’s stated goal(s)). 
As with every aspect of NLP, the term ‘Neuro-Linguistic Programming’ is specifically descriptive; ‘Neuro’ refers to the mind and its sensory inputs, ‘Linguistic’ refers to language and non-verbal communication systems, and ‘Programming’ to programs (or thought patterns) we run to achieve our specific and desired goals or outcomes.
