What is NLP?

NLP stands for neurolinguistic programming. It’s a complicated name that describes the way people combine perception, thought and action to get the results they want.

NLP is a description of how human beings work: they perceive information through their senses, use language to give it meaning, and remember it by storing it in patterns. When you think better, you make better choices and develop better skills.

NLP is the most natural, straight-forward way to understand how choices get made and results get created.

It’s called neurolinguistic programming because it combines three things. The “neuro” refers to the information that comes in through your senses and is stored in your brain and body. The “linguistic” is for the words you choose to give meaning to what you notice or what you want. The “programming” is for the way you combine what you observe, what you think and what you do to generate satisfying results.

Great NLP trainers are curious and practical and dedicated to getting better. They want to take everything they have learned from their teachers and develop it further. When you’re checking out NLP websites, look for signs that trainers are using NLP to make changes in themselves, their teaching and their clients.
