Why is NLP so useful?
NLP is an attitude, normally of curiosity, which leads to the modelling of success.
This then leads to a number of techniques, so that what is learned from that initial modelling can be repeated and passed on to others. NLP can help you significantly improve your communication and influence skills. In addition, practising these techniques will increase your logical, emotional, and intuitive thinking – like working out in a gym will build your physical strength, flexibility and endurance.
When NLP is built into habits it is likely to help you to accomplish more than you currently think is possible.
NLP is a lot more than just NLP techniques, however learning about them can be the start of a fascinating adventure.
What is NLP used for?
NLP can be used for personal and business development. For personal development it’s used to clarify purpose and direction, improve relationships and overcome challenges such as anxieties and phobias. In business it’s used to improve coaching, sales, leadership, communication and influence.
If you’re already a good coach, sales person and / or leader, then NLP can be an effective amplifier to help you become a really great coach, sales person and leader.
NLP techniques make us more self-aware.
The more we practise, the better we get. A side benefit of practising NLP techniques is that we become more self-aware – as long as we continually notice the results we get! If we do notice and if we treat the results as information to help us decide what to do next, then we will invariably be more self aware and help our clients at the same time.
