NLP, Communication, and Influence

by | Jan 25, 2020 | NLP, Weekly Blog

I discovered NLP 13 years ago after reading a book by Paul McKenna. Within weeks I was attending a course run by Dr Richard Bandler and was hooked. Within 18 months I qualified as a trainer and had set up my own elite performance coaching business. I learnt so many things that I could not have found anywhere else. 

I became a far more effective communicator, and an even better listener. I learnt to tell the difference between what somebody was saying, what they really meant, and what was left unsaid. I was able to fill the gaps and understand how their unconscious mind was processing their view of the world. 

I learned the power of hypnosis, and the importance of our unconscious mind. When we learn to connect more closely to it we transform, as if by magic. As a coach and a therapist this was immensely valuable.

I witnessed at first hand the legendary communication skills of Dr Richard Bandler, the co-creator of these NLP techniques. Not least he is a master of using metaphor to engage our unconscious mind, and I learnt how to access parts of my mind that were previously hidden. 

I learnt so much more, and my decision to train with the best was one of the best decisions of my life.  It cannot be a coincidence that so many politicians and corporate leaders have chosen NLP to polish their persuasion and influence skills, and hopefully to become better people too!
