Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) (2022)

NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) has been around in language teaching longer than we may realise. Those teachers who incorporate elements of suggestopedia, community language learning, music, drama and body language into their lessons are already drawing on NLP as it stood twenty years ago.

The roots of NLP
NLP, with its roots in psychology and neurology, is about the way the brain works and how the brain can be trained for the purpose of betterment. It encompasses or is related to ‘left / right brain’ functions, ‘visual / auditory / kinaesthetic‘ learning styles, multiple intelligence and other areas of research which are attempting to identify modes of learning whilst recognising the importance of the individual learner.

NLP and related subjects have their sceptics, particularly in terms of general classroom applicability and how NLP is commercially marketed as a method of self-improvement. NLP has been labelled a ‘quasi science‘ and criticised on the grounds of lack of empirical studies, but there are sound reasons why NLP is compatible with current classroom practice.

  • NLP is about recognising patterns.
  • NLP is concerned with process rather than content.
  • NLP provides a model of how we communicate with ourselves and others.

NLP and language learning
The NLP model explains how we process information which comes to us from the outside and is based on the work of Richard Bandler and John Grinder, who initially recognised the importance of eye contact and movement in identifying emotional states and how (rather than what) individuals think.

(Video) What Is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) And How Does It Work?

In NLP, information arrives via the senses, and ‘six modalities‘ are identified as ways that different individuals
perceive the messages. These modalities are:

  • Visual Remembered
  • Visual Constructed
  • Auditory Remembered
  • Auditory Remembered
  • Auditory Digital
  • Kinaesthetic

These clearly form the basis of what we now know as ‘VAK’ – the identification of visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learners and the need to cater for different learning styles in the classroom.

As externalities arrive, our perception of these is modified by three major elements – deletion, distortion and generalisation. These processes are instantly recognisable in language learners:

  • Deletion
    There is too much information for the learner to handle. Learners delete or omit some information in order to make input manageable. From the teacher’s point of view, we have already learnt not to present too much new language at once, and the principle of ‘less is more’.
  • Distortion
    Language learners will distort information into forms which are understandable and learnable. This process is both negative, in that it produces errors and misunderstandings, and positive in that it contributes to learnability and motivation.
  • Generalisation
    This is one of the ways that we learn, by taking the information we have and drawing broad conclusions. At its worst, over-generalisation occurs, causing misuse of rules and poorly formed hypotheses.

However, what is actually learnt by individuals is dictated by their own personal filters. NLP identifies these as ‘beliefs‘, ‘values‘, ‘decisions‘ and ‘memories‘, broadly defined as the way someone handles information.

(Video) Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP): Which Ideas Are Valid?

In NLP, these filters affect our model of the world and our behaviour. In language learning, they explain a wide range of learning styles and strategies:

  • Learners make decisions based on beliefs and value judgements. They are often in a state of conflict because their previous learning experiences do not coincide with their current learning environment.
  • Values provide the basis for decisions about what is right and wrong, what they want / need to know and don’t want / need to know. In certain cultures, some beliefs are disabling, in that they prevent learners adopting strategies such as risk-taking which teachers would like to encourage.
  • Memories and prior decisions create beliefs which affect our current behaviour. Learners often revert to previously adopted strategies and require deconditioning, while it can be argued that adult learning patterns merely replace earlier learning strategies which have been forgotten.

NLP also recognises the importance of non-verbal communication, particularly eye contact, posture, breathing and movement. Congruency‘ is achieved when there is a match between verbal and non-verbal communication. Congruency, here, may have a language learning parallel in the concept of fluency, suggesting that non-verbal communication should be taught alongside functional language and phonology in order to achieve natural language production.

NLP in the classroom
Teachers using music to create atmosphere and stimulate creativity, or using mime and drama techniques to build confidence and add body language to speech acts are already drawing from the NLP repertoire. Only recently, however, have classroom activities specifically and overtly based on NLP been developed by ELT practitioners.

Many of these activities also integrate the skills and are extensions or modifications of existing techniques such as storytelling, guided fantasy, role-play and simulation. Areas where NLP can have a real impact, however, are those which explore the relationships between students and between students and teacher, and those which help to create a healthy and positive learning environment:

(Video) What is NLP & How Does It Work? Neuro Linguistic Programming Basics

  • Creating rapport
    Rapport is the sense of ease that develops when people are interacting with others they feel comfortable with, and is essential for meaningful communication to take place. Rapport is most likely when like-minded people interact. In the classroom, mingle and ‘getting to know you’ activities, as well as continuous negotiation between teacher and students foster rapport, while communication gap activities and group work reinforce it.
  • Mirroring
    One way of establishing good rapport is to mirror the behaviour of those we wish to influence or to be influenced by. Mirroring of posture, gestures, facial expressions and even breathing can easily be practised in the classroom, while simple drilling achieves the same results with phonological features of connected speech and key lexical phrases. To achieve natural communication, verbal and non-verbal aspects need to be combined in communicative activities. Learners may be asked to mirror the behaviour of characters on television before mirroring each other and the teacher.
  • Creating positive states and anchoring
    This is about motivation and maintaining positive attitudes to learning. In NLP, a positive state is created through a mental image formed by the process of achieving something mentally or physically, and this state is anchored by a gesture, expression or body movement which is repeated to maintain or recall the state. Guided fantasy may be used to create the state, and a movement or sound selected to represent it. Some teachers, often subconsciously, opt for different positions in the classroom to carry out certain actions, such as give instructions, teach grammar or tell a story. In ELT this is a type of anchoring by which students automatically know what is going to happen next in a lesson, and are prepared for it.
  • Maintaining flow
    NLP fits in nicely with ‘Flow Theory’, the notion that learning flows like water and that the best learning takes place when uninterrupted. For the purposes of lesson planning, flow is achieved when there is a balance of skills development and new challenges, clear task goals and the need for concentration. Successful learning takes place when learners feel a sense of control over what is happening in the classroom, do not feel self-conscious, and receive positive feedback from each other and the teacher. In good lessons, time seems to pass quickly. There are clear messages here about balance of activities, interest, attitude to errors, confidence building, learner training and autonomy. Competitive and collaborative games, jokes, songs and anecdotes, personalisation and well-structured information gap activities all help to maintain flow.
  • Pacing and leading
    A set of strategies requiring the listener to ‘tune in’, accept and correctly state the speaker’s point of view (pacing) before suggesting an alternative point of view (leading). Acceptance of an argument will be accompanied by the listener’s mirroring of the speaker’s behaviour. Activities involving listening without response, turn-taking, planning and decision-making are useful for raising awareness of this process.
  • Perceptual positioning
    This is an extension of mirroring used in NLP for resolving conflicts and involving a neutral third party as a mediator in disputes. An ELT application here would be in a reading or storytelling lesson, where one position is taken by the writer / teller, another by a character in the story, and a third by a reader or neutral observer of events.
  • Modelling good practice
    NLP asks us to mirror what others do well. In ELT, much of this is about learner training, particularly when learners discover each other’s strategies or adopt new study skills, for revision and examination preparation for example.

Whether one is a disciple of NLP or not, what is clear is that NLP and ELT are complementary in that NLP learns by observing communication patterns, and ELT learns from what NLP suggests as best practice in improving interpersonal communication and therefore learning. There is nothing in NLP that is contrary to current ELT methodology in terms of communicative language learning and humanistic approaches, while NLP has much to contribute to the already vast repertoire of the informed eclectic.

In this article, we examine neuro-linguistic programming, which aims to alter thoughts and behaviors, and has been used for psychological conditions.

Despite a lack of empirical evidence to support it, Bandler and Grinder published two books, The Structure of Magic I and II , and NLP took off.. It is founded on the idea that people operate by internal “maps” of the world that they learn through sensory experiences.. Instead, it operates through the conscious use of language to bring about changes in someone’s thoughts and behavior.. An NLP practitioner will identify a person’s PRS and base their therapeutic framework around it.. As such, NLP practitioners use many different techniques that include the following:. A paper published in 2009 concluded that after three decades, the theories behind NLP were still not credible, and evidence for its effectiveness was only anecdotal.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a set of skills that reveal the kind of communication that matters most - on the inside and out.

Someone trained in neuro-linguistic programming knows how such programs are structured in the mind and how to access them through conversation so that outdated programs and autopilot behaviors can be changed.. Transforming the inner communication so that you feel better is the Programming aspect of NLP.. All organizations agree to the following levels of NLP training, which can be found at many NLP training centers.. NLP Practitioner NLP Practitioner is the first level of NLP training.. An NLP Practitioner training encompasses learning the basic elements of NLP, as well as the techniques of combining these elements to apply them with skill and elegance.. NLP Master An NLP Master training builds on the Practitioner level material in more depth or adds more complex techniques and models.. NLP Trainer NLP Trainers train NLP Practitioners as well as NLP Master Practitioners.. NLP Coach An NLP coach is proficient in not only NLP but also Life Coaching.. An NLP Coach might have learned coaching and then added on the NLP Practitioner and NLP Master Tools to their credential.. iNLP Center was the first to successfully feature online NLP trainings and has since perfected the platform and delivery to make it the most effective way to learn NLP.. However, as with any neuro-linguistic programming or NLP training, it must fit your personal style and needs.

Was ist Neurolinguistisches Programmieren? Wie ist NLP entstanden? Wofür kann man NLP nutzen? Was bewirkt NLP?

Auf die Frage "Was ist NLP?". Manchmal sagen wir einfach: "NLP ist ein Kommunikationsmodell - es geht um effektive zielgerichtete Kommunikation mit sich selbst und mit anderen!" .. Im Jahr 1967 lernte der 17-jährige Richard Bandler, er organisierte zu dieser Zeit mehrere Rockkonzerte, Robert Spitzer kennen.. Dieser sagte zu und machte sich an die Arbeit.. Bandler arbeitete so intensiv an seiner Aufgabe, dass er nach kurzer Zeit begann wie Fritz Perls zu sprachen und zu handeln und irgendwann feststellte, dass er in der Lage war, ähnlich wie Fritz Perls zu arbeiten.. Gemeinsam beschrieben Richard Bandler und John Grinder bis 1974 ein Modell der Informationsgewinnung zur Rekonstruktion des Modells der Welt eines Menschen – das Metamodell.. NLP ist also durch systematisches Beobachten einiger der erfolgreichsten Therapeuten der USA und Ausprobieren entstanden, so war auch die Antwort von John Grinder auf die Frage "Was ist NLP?". Und so ist Modelling, also das systematische Untersuchen und Übernehmen erfolgreicher Strategien, die Königsdisziplin im NLP.. Eine Reihe von Grundannahmen bilden die Grundlage von NLP.. Man kann nicht nicht kommunizieren.. Jeder Mensch hat sein eigenes berechtigtes Modell der Welt.. NLP kann man überall dort nutzen, wo kommuniziert wird und trotzdem ist NLP viel mehr als nur ein Kommunikationswerkzeug oder ein Methodenkoffer für Veränderung.Was NLP zu einer überaus kraftvollen und wirksamen Methode macht, ist die menschliche, konstruktivistische Haltung.

What is neuro linguistic programming & what is the relationship to human behaviour? Our guide introduces the topic and defines some critical concepts.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) examines the cogs inside the machine that is the human mind; it helps us understand what drives human behaviour.. The developers of NLP – Richard Bandler and Dr. John Grinder – searched for the essence of behavioural change; they were determined to understand the hidden grammar of thinking and human conduct.. Perhaps best phrased by the official Neuro Linguistic Programming website, NLP helps us “learn how to gain more control over what we considered to be automatic functions of our own neurology.” Its methods and insights are gateways through which the individual can approach situations from fresh, new angles.. NLP asserts that human behaviour is composed almost entirely of habits and patterns of behaviour.. Metaprograms are therefore the primary ‘programs’ – your built-in habits – which direct other ‘programs’ in the computer that is your mind.. Towards and away People who have a ‘towards’ program are driven by reaching targets; they tend to move towards gaining pleasure and accomplishing goals.. Internal and external Those with an ‘internal’ program set standards for themselves in terms of approval and decision making.. Sameness and difference Those with a ‘sameness’ program are motivated by the similarities in things; they readily identify similarities and thrive on activities that do not extend out of their comfort zone.. Those with a ‘difference’ program are, oppositely, attuned to the differences in things and are open to trying new things and creating changes.. You focus on things that are real – things that are concrete and things you know to be true.. Those with a ‘reactive’ program spend time planning ahead and analysing things; their decisions require careful consideration.. Options and procedures Those with an ‘options’ program work best when they have an overview of something; they are not fussed about having finer details.. Those with a ‘procedures’ program alternatively work strongest when they are presented with specific answers and organised details.. Whatever the case, these NLP metaprograms are interesting windows into the human mind and help us understand ourselves.. In addition, because these patterns help us understand other human beings, we can work better with others and gain a stronger understanding of their personal behaviours and preferences.

This guide will look at the history of NLP, as well as its core concept and strategies. You’ll also be able to understand more about the benefits NLP.

The idea is that external behaviors are controlled by internal processing strategies.. Programming refers to the process of learning things – We all use the different internal strategies and patterns to learn things and make decisions.. 1) Subjectivity Each person experiences the world subjectively, meaning that our experiences of the world leave us to form subjective models of how things are.. As you will learn later, NLP sees learning as an imitative behavior, which they call modeling.. As discussed earlier, the NLP system states that all external behavior is caused by the sensory experience of visual, auditory, kinaesthetic, olfactory and gustatory senses.. Furthermore, the internal response you have for a specific external behavior is made up of a collection of internal processes and internal state.. The idea of NLP is heavily based on the ideas of a strategy, as it sees your internal and external behavior uses processing strategies for each behaviour and response.. Modeling essentially tries to find the strategies or mental behavior patterns the person uses for doing things.. The NLP strategies deal with the previously mentioned external and internal experiences.. In the NLP strategy theory, there is always a specific sequence of both external and internal experiences, which lead to a specific result.. This refers to a model of different NLP strategies and it is mainly used in order to explain how a person processes information.. By understanding the impact different sensory elements have on your own behavior, you can start experimenting with different ideas and strategies.. Since NLP focuses on understanding strategies that guide your behavior and change them for better, you can use it to remove phobias or fears you have.. While the evidence to support NLP’s influence on healthy mood is somewhat limited, most people find reduced levels of depression and improved moved after implementing NLP strategies.

Discover how to reprogram your mind and transform your life with these 5 neuro-linguistic programming techniques. It's time to achieve your dreams.

NLP techniques are one of these things.. NLP at its core sums up one of Tony’s most powerful beliefs: We can change the way we think , feel and behave by changing our focus – because where focus goes, energy flows.. Because NLP techniques focus on making behavioral changes, they can be used for a variety of different goals.. Picture your body language : confident, determined, comfortable.. Mirroring is an NLP technique that leverages body language to make instant connections and build rapport with anyone.. Incantations take it a step further, changing your physiology as well as your words to create a state of total confidence.. NLP techniques like incantations are an effective way to reprogram your mind and create empowering beliefs .

An introduction to the concept of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Learn how to take control of your mind, for positive outcomes.

NLP works from the starting point that you may not control much in your life, but that you can always take control of what goes on in your head.. Using mind techniques such as visualisation, you can change the way that you think and feel about past events, fears and even phobias.. Notice how this makes you feel.. Imagine a picture of something that makes you feel good.. Notice how this makes you feel.. By manipulating images in this way, you are teaching your brain to magnify good feelings and make bad feelings weaker.. Notice how the way that you feel about it has changed.. Feel the feeling spreading through you.. See how it feels.. Some might call it ‘mind tricks’ but, by using these techniques and others developed by NLP practitioners, you can learn to take control of your mind and how you respond to the world.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a strategic approach to changing one’s thoughts and behaviors to achieve desired outcomes and results.

One of the pillars in my life’s work is neuro-linguistic programming, aka NLP.. Like a linguistic Jedi, Tony could reframe any problem into a possibility.. As Bandler and Grinder studied these linguistic wizards and translated their approaches into duplicable models, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was born.. Imagine having the ultimate communication skills, strategies and attitude to:. Transform negative mindsets or behaviors (like: stress, anxiety, overwhelm) into Empowering mindsets and behaviors (like: clarity, focus, inspired action). You create an Internal Map.. It accomplishes this through an attitude and a series of Transformational Processes that are continually being updated, and are carefully designed to transform any current mindset or behavior that does not serve you (aka: doubt, stress, anxiety) into a desired mindset or behaviors instead (like: joy, love, empowerment, clarity, focus).. NLP is an evolving body of work.. We begin by eliciting your existing map of the world (i.e., uncovering what makes you think what you think, feel what you feel, and do what you the deepest level of your subconscious mind).. Once we identify the “problem” we can begin loosening the boundaries around this old problem with a few powerful Evolved NLP exercises.. This Evolved NLP Process of Transformation sets the stage for your success!. SIIA gives you the mindset, teaching, tools, skills and experience to become a Certified NLP Practitioner.

Neuro-linguistic programming, or NLP, is a practice that changes the way you talk to yourself and think about certain events.

A psychological approach called neuro-linguistic programming is an effective way to create new perspectives and behavior patterns that can help us eliminate those unwanted habits.. Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is a way of changing our thoughts and behaviors to help achieve desired outcomes.. Behavioral flexibility allows us to change unproductive behaviors, create new perspectives, and build healthy habits .. Behaviors Behaviors often contribute to negative actions and thoughts.. An NLP therapist will try to understand the patient’s thinking, behavior patterns, emotional states, and aspirations.

Neuro-Linguistic programming (NLP) uses perception, behavior and communication techniques for people to change their thoughts and actions.

ALL ABOUT NEURO-LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING (NLP)All about Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) uses perception, behavior, and communication techniques for people to change their thoughts and actions and achieve better outcomes.. NLP is based on language processing but should not be confused with natural language processing, which is different from Neuro-linguistic programming.. They made a framework and believed that it was possible to recognize the thought and behavior patterns of successful people and teach them to other individuals.. Language is the tool we use to access the inner map of the mind.. Sub-modality change patterns. Our minds operate with a language of their own.. Sub-modality change patterns are all about that.. Imagine how much you can succeed in life if you learn to create easy and comfortable relationships, to make people at ease so they can open up and feel safe around you and trust you.. A picture or an event looks and feels completely different in a new frame.. For example, during sports events, if athletes are asked how they are feeling, they always say that they feel excited instead of stressed.. NLP Foundational is the first level of training in NLP.. NLP practitioner program generally includes developments in communication techniques.. You will be trained in NLP programs – Foundational NLP, NLP Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioners.. An NLP trainer is not only competent in NLP but also in life coaching.

Neuro-Linguistic-Programming – or NLP as it’s commonly known – is fundamentally the study of human excellence packaged into how-to's.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming – or NLP as it’s commonly known – is fundamentally the study of human excellence.. “Understand how human beings work, not by trying to fix what doesn’t work, but by beginning to look at what we know to be how people function when they function at their best.“ – Ian Mcdermott, ITS Founder. Their interest was on high performing individuals and set upon studying the behaviour and mindset that lead this group of people to achieve great things.. For example, is there a particular smell or song that reminds you of an experience or feeling?. Many people begin learning about NLP for business benefits.. Some NLP techniques may resonate with you, some you may feel less impactful.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) can be used for both good or bad reasons. This technique can be used on you, and you might not even know it.

Scientists call this neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) , and it can also be used for both good or bad reasons.. No matter if it’s manipulation or influence, it can definitely feel like you’re being unwillingly persuaded if not used in a completely positive manner – a manner that is productive leading to an improvement in your life.. When you do certain things, or use certain body language , does someone seem to be copying those things?. The pressure to make quick decisions You will notice that someone is using neuro linguistic programming when you are being pressured to make a quick decision about something.. In fact, along with pressure for quick decision making, you will be pushed ever so slightly toward the answer they want to hear.. They use layered language People who are skilled in neuro-linguistic programming use layered language to get what they want .. Giving permission to do what they want One of the most interesting signs of those who have undergone NLP training is permission pressure .. They will say, “Feel free to let yourself go and have a good time” , all the while they are getting to take advantage of you.. Yes, it’s true, while there are those who try to take advantage of you with neuro-linguistic programming, there are also those who use it to help you become a better person, slightly nudging you toward something you need to do.. If you have a good heart, you may want to learn neuro-linguistic programming to help someone.. As a survivor of childhood trauma and multiple types of abuse, she is an advocate for mental health awareness.. With this background and personal experience, she strives to help others overcome trauma and abuse, cope with mental illness, and heal over time.

Some of the best 6 NLP techniques are listed below. However, NLP includes many more effective techniques which can be explored by learning NLP online with Dr. Paras.

As an ICF and EMMC certified Coach, I’ve used the power of the best Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques to create successful coaching sessions.. The Connection Between NLP Techniques and Coaching Coaching brings a person’s attention to the ‘here and now’.. NLP techniques support coaches to create solution-focused coaching sessions through the numerous ways outlined by the creators.. A coach can always use existing coaching models, but coaching sessions powered by the use of Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques improve one’s success ratio..
