Description of NLP

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the process of creating models of excellence. Modeling is the complex activity of capturing in a learnable transferable code the differences that make a difference between an excellent performer and an average performer, between an excellent work team and an average one. NLP, then, is the process of identifying, coding and transferring precisely those differences in a learnable form to the interested participants and companies to allow significant upgrading of their performance to levels of excellence.

NLP was created by John Grinder and Richard Bandler is the early 1970s. Their initial studies of geniuses - the typical inspiration or source of the coded patterns - occurred in the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy. More specifically, the performers who were the subjects of the initial studies were Fritz Perls (founder of Gestalt therapy), Virginia Satir (considered by many to be the ablest of the American family therapists) and Milton H. Erickson (a physician and psychiatrist who was reputedly the finest of the American medical hypnotists).

Since those initial studies and the phenomenally rapid growth of NLP centers in virtually every part of the world, there have been a number of subsequent studies of excellence ranging from studies in excellence in athletics, the arts (visual - painting), auditory (music - both performance and composition) through education to top performers in the world of business (leadership, managerial, strategic planning, teams, marketing,).

The primary criterion for the evaluation of a model is its effectiveness - that is, either the implementation of the model (or coded patterns) deliver the benefits proposed or it does not. Thus, while the processes of actually creating the model - the codification of the critical difference are wholly congruent with the general scientific methods of discovery and testing, models differ from theories by their independence from such issues as truth, fit with reality, Models are, of course as part of the general scientific discourse, subject to criteria such as intersubjective verification, replicability, internal consistency,
