Morning to all, I trust you had a smashing weekend. We’re just 6 days from the start of a busy spring season of NLP, starting with the internationally renowned Premier Practitioner with John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St Clair and Michael Carroll. We then have a very special one day event with John and Carmen called NLP Past, present and future. At the same time we will be running our New Code mentoring program only open to our ITA Trainers of NLP.
This is an interesting question which I have been contemplating over the past few weeks. Personally I feel the best way to discuss this is to transfer the same theory across different contexts. Would you seek advice about investing from someone who has never invested? Or have golf lessons from someone who has never picked up a club? Though these are two fairly cut and dry examples it provokes an interesting conundrum when choosing who to work with, surely it makes sense to receive coaching from someone who has been through a successful coaching process themselves. At the same time with the same theory let’s say your outcome from coaching is to be a happy surely finding and modelling someone who is happy all the time is the way to go right? Let’s say you want to lose weight, is being given advice from someone else who has lost weight is the way to go? Or like the happy person is finding someone who is healthy all time so has never needed to lose weight the person to go and work with? But if both the happy or healthy person hasn’t been formally coached then doesn’t that mean they’re out of the picture? Or have we all being coached one way or another informally in a professional and educational structure?
Sometimes people behave in ways that are inappropriate. A person may have personal habits or little idiosyncrasies that others may find offensive. When a child is growing up, their bad behaviors can be corrected and stopped, but what if the person that is acting in a terrible manner is an adult? What if this person has no idea his or her attitude is offense and detrimental to others? To help a person identify their behavior there is something called NLP, which stands for neuro linguistic programming. With the help of an NLP practitioner, a person can transform their bad behavior into a brand new productive attitude.
Neuro linguistic programming is characterized as an approach to psychotherapy, social communication, and both personal and interpersonal development. Neuro linguistic programming refers to the connections which occur between neurological processes in the brain and experienced based behavioral patterns. Hence, “neuro”—neurological—and “programming,” or learned behavior experiences. Neuro linguistic programming is typically referred to as a pseudoscience by the scientific community because techniques used in neuro linguistic programming often uses data based on subjective data, such as personal experiences, rather than more objective and scientific methods; however, many people have found benefits through the study and use of neuro linguistic programming and although its methods may not be scientifically proven, they are useful to those with an interest in the communication and psychotherapy fields.
Since some people have ethical concerns about NLP, we are going to attempt to address some of those concerns in this article. Neuro linguistic programming gives the NLP practitioner great power, and as Spiderman himself has so eloquently taught us, with great power comes great responsiblity. This power needs to be used responsibly both in informal and clinical settings. Fortunately, there is no shortage of responsible uses, and the dangers of abuse are very minimal. The reasons the dangers of abuse are so minimal is that even the subconscious mind is governed by one’s personal senses of morality and self preservation.
One day Seminar with John Grinder and Carmen Bostic St Clair!
The countdown towards our spring season of courses with John Grinder and Carmen Bostic St Clair has truly begun! This year midway through our Premier Practitioner course with John, Carmen and Michael we have scheduled an exciting one day seminar, ‘NLP Past, Present and future’ open to all. This seminar will give you aunique blend of an account of the origins of NLP from the co creator John Grinder, the latest developments in New Code NLP from two of the primary developers, innovative new accelerated learning techniques for language acquisition and the next steps for the future of NLP from two prolific developers. It will be an action packed day perfect for anyone interested in NLP, looking to develop their skills further whether they be a Practitioner or trainer… interested in accelerated learning, or simply just curious wanting to see John and Carmen in action. Of course in true Academy style we always look to give you with the best value possible for attending our events, so with this email you can purchase this course for just a third of the full price if booked before the 15th February.

The basic idea behind NLP is that by embedding certain commands (in a very subtle way) within the words that you either say or write, you can influence someone’s behaviour. Notice we said you could influence their behaviour, and we did not say you could completely control it. That’s because the technique does have certain limitations (similar to those of hypnosis) even though it is much more effective than you at first think it could be, especially after you have mastered the techniques. It takes time to master the techniques, but we can assure you based on our personal experience that it is well worth the effort.
When we launched the NLP Premier Practitioner in 2006 with John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St Clair and Michael Carroll, we brought to the field a new way of delivering NLP training, integrating Classic and New Code NLP. As always, we update courses so you can benefit from the newer developments in NLP as well as the tried and tested NLP patterns. This March, you as a person interested in NLP have an opportunity to absorb yourself in NLP patterning at its very best. This is available to people with all levels of NLP experience.
What makes this course so special?
We’re now 16 days into the New Year and I trust you’ve had a great start to the year aided by all of the learning’s you’ve from the courses you’ve taken with us in the past few years. This email today is exclusive only to those who have invested the time, energy and finances with us at our NLP Academy in Practitioner, Master Practitioner and Trainers Training courses.
It’s been an auctioned packed week here at the NLP Academy. Michael’s been delivering a NLP for business workshop in Monterey, Mexico. It’s fascinating to see how this stuff crosses over so well in different cultures and the differing experiences in delivering the seminars as well.
