Frequently Asked Questions about NLP

Define NLP succinctly!

This is a common request and not an easy one to fulfil because NLP covers such a wide field and has so many diverse applications. The following are just a few ways of defining it


NLP is a method of personal development - a tool for improving your own and others' performance


It is also a model of effective communication - a practical and pragmatic collection of insights and methods that can enable you to improve how you communicate with yourself and others


And it is a means of modelling - or creating models of human behaviour.

In a nutshell...

...NLP is a simple yet powerful approach to personal and professional development. It is based on the study of successful human performance in which the methods of very effective people are studied.

The results are then distilled into easily learned ‘techniques’ and presented in workshops - making each workshop a valuable short-cut to more successful living. In a few hours you can learn what may have taken others years to discover in a trial and error manner.

Can you explain the name 'Neuro-Linguistic Programming'

It is explained here: What is NLP?

Why might it interest me?

NLP provides you with a means to make changes in your own life and to assist others in doing the same. It provides you with

bullet insights into how people think and behave
bullet dynamic personal change techniques
bullet advanced communication skills.

There's more information here, too.

Give a few examples of how I could benefit from learning NLP?

You'll find more information about its applications here.

Does learning NLP involve lots of study?

NLP is not an intellectual process. On the contrary NLP is very behavioural. It is about what you do with what you know rather than with what you know.

For example, you can do the entire 20 day NLP Practitioner Certification Training without reading any books on the subject other than the training manual. However becoming skilful with NLP does require lots of practise. And you can do this in your everyday activities and interactions with friends and colleagues.

Is it necessary to attend a 'Practitioner' training course?

No. You can obtain lots of benefit from attending a shorter training such as our NLP Core Skills as long as you recognise that merely attending is not enough - you also have to practise what you learn.

At an introductory workshop you learn techniques and you practise them. This is useful and interesting but if you want to gain maximum value from attending determine that you will devote a few minutes daily to applying what you have learned.

Has it been scientifically validated?

No, nor does NLP make any claims to be scientific or to be based on studies that compare the average behaviour of one group with the average behaviour of another.

NLP is a model of what works in individual performance. It is based on the working principle that if one person can do something then, given similar physical characteristics, anyone else can learn to do the same by modelling and integrating into their own repertoire the skills and attitude of the successful person.

While this working principle may or may not be literally true it leads to some quite remarkable improvements in personal performance.
