The key elements of Neuro-Linguistic Programming are modelling the successful and effective communication. After studying and understanding how a successful person accomplishes a task, the technique can be effectively communicated to others, in order to help them accomplish their own task.
One of the principles of Neuro-Linguistic Programming is that every person has their own map of the world and operates within their own perspective rather than from a place of objectivity. Everyone’s perception of reality is distorted, filtered, limited and unique. An NLP practitioner must therefore access the individual’s representational systems, understand what the person’s map of the reality is and what effect it can have on that person’s thoughts and behavioural patterns, emotional state and aspirations. The NLP practitioner can then help individuals replace limiting beliefs, strengthen skills, reduce intensity of negative emotions or enhance positive states. Individuals will build effective communication between conscious and unconscious mental processes, to increase creativity and problem-solving skills.
