WHAT IS NLP?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP for short, is the study of subjective experience; of how humans make meaning and create results in their life.

> NEURO: refers to our nervous systems, senses, and internal wiring.

> LINGUISTIC: refers to the language and labels we use to code, order, and give meaning to information we’re gather through our senses.

> PROGRAMMING: the patterns that we run to create behaviors that lead to our outcomes and results.

NLP emerged from two movements that had reached young maturity in the 1970s - The Human Potential Movement and the Cognitive Psychology Movement

NLP’s founders - Richard Bandler [a mathematician, computer scientist, and therapist] and John Grinder [a world renowned linguist] - were heavily influenced by some key figures in these movements including:

> Alfred Korzybski, a Polish-American scholar famous for his work General Semantics and for his 1933 tome, Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics

> Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy, a client-centered approach to psychotherapy that helps clients focus on the present and understand what is really happening in their lives right now, rather than what they may perceive to be happening based on past experience.

> George A Miller, Eugene Galanater, & Karl Pribram, cognitive psychologists and authors of Plans & the Structure of Behavior (1960) which aimed to explain how we do what we do in order to get our results [i.e. how our programming works].

> Gregory Bateson, an English anthropologist, social scientist, linguist, and systems thinker whose writings include Steps to an Ecology of Mind (1972) and Mind and Nature (1979). Bateson and colleagues also developed the influential double-bind theory of schizophrenia.

> Milton Erickson, the grandfather of indirect hypnotherapy and an American psychiatrist who specialized in family therapy.

> Noam Chomsky, an American linguist, philosopher, and a major figure in analytic philosophy and one of the founders of the field of cognitive science.

> Virginia Satir, an American award-winning pioneer in family therapy. She is also known for creating the Satir Change Process Model, a psychological model developed through clinical studies. Change management gurus embrace this model to define how change impacts organizations.
