What is neuro-linguistic programming?
NLP is a system that was originally developed in the 1970s. It includes advanced communication techniques that have been identified by studying people who are highly successful in their respective fields. By modeling their behavioral patterns and thinking styles, NLP helps you to achieve similarly positive outcomes. The strategies that are identified through the study of successful people can help you to gain a better understanding of yourself and of other people.
In challenging situations, your reactions are frequently automatic. The reactions that you have are instinctive, and they may either be positive or negative. NLP allows you to gain an awareness of your reactions and to change them in a more positive way.
NLP is used to help to increase your ability to behave in a manner that is both constructive and positive. By using the techniques, you can learn how to increase your connectedness with others, develop greater rapport, and learn to become a more effective communicator.
Neuro-linguistic programming helps you to gain a better understanding of the outcomes that you want. It also helps you to pinpoint your progress so that you know whether you are moving towards achieving that goal. It helps you to be more flexible in your behavior and can increase your awareness of what you say, how you say it, and whether another person is engaged in what you say. This awareness can help you to shift your speech or behavior in a way that helps people to reengage. It can also help you to feel more confident while you speak publicly.
While many people are fairly good at connecting with others, most people experience occasions when things do not go as well as they had planned. If you are having a challenging meeting, NLP can help you to develop a rapport with the others who are involved. This can help to improve the conversational flow and reduce the tension.
Using mirroring techniques to match the body language and tone of voice of another person can help to increase the rapport. This sends unconscious signals to the other person that you are similar to him or her.
Our language is sensory. If you are able to develop a skill that allows you to identify the sensory language of others, you can modify the way in which you use your words. Learning how to read body language can provide you with an insight into what might be happening with the person with whom you are communicating.
NLP explores the mechanics of language and the verbal and nonverbal ways in which people communicate. This allows you to identify patterns so that you can develop a deeper understanding of behavior. Figuring out what motivates others can help you when you interact with them.
Misconceptions about NLP
Some people have the mistaken idea that NLP is a way to manipulate others. How someone uses the tools of NLP determines whether manipulation occurs. If the tools are used to benefit him or her, then they are being used positively.
Other people believe that NLP is a technique to determine whether others are lying by watching the movements of their eyes. Sensory acuity does involve picking up subtle movements of the eyes. However, each person has different meanings attached to his or her own eye movements. This means that you would need to learn what an individual person’s eye movements mean for him or her before you could begin to use NLP to detect whether he or she is lying.
