Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) can be one of the most powerful and effective tools you can use in business communications and presentations.
A practice that was first introduced into the field of psychology in the 1970s, Neuro Linguistic Programming soon took hold in the mainstream and is now a technique often used by trainers and facilitators to identify excellence in thinking, skills, and behavior.
Neuro Linguistic Programming can be broken down into: “neuro,” which refers to the brain as the storehouse of experience; “linguistic,” which refers to the role of language in describing an experience; and “programming,” which refers to the unique way that each person organizes his/her experiences.
NLP techniques are easy to learn, and they can be used in everyday communication, to tailor what you say, and how you say it to another person, based on their individual characteristics.
In our training programs, we’ve taken a number of business skills that we’ve identified as imperative for success, and incorporated them into our communication modules, such as rapport, active listening, and precise questioning, to name a few.
