Learn how to apply NLP to fine-tune life skills, build rapport, enhance communication, and become more persuasive

One of the most exciting psychological techniques in use today, neuro-linguistic programming helps you model yourself on those-or, more accurately, the thought processes of those-who are stellar in their fields. Rooted in behavioral psychology of the 1970s, the concepts of NLP are now common to such diverse areas as business, education, sports, health, music and the performing arts-and have been instrumental in helping people change and improve their professional and personal lives. In this handy, informative guide, you will acquire a basic toolkit of NLP techniques, with advice on the NLP approach to goal-setting, as well as insights on how you think, form mental strategies, manage emotional states, and, finally, understand the world.

  • With new content on new code NLP, symbolic modeling, clean language in the workplace and energetic NLP-techniques developed after the first edition
  • Includes updated information throughout and two new chapters: Dipping into Modeling and Making Change Easier

Not simply a guide to reprogramming your negative or habitual thoughts, this practical, down-to-earth introduction to NLP is the first step to fulfilling personal and professional ambitions and achieving excellence in every sphere of your life.

When I was working with my executive coach, http://www.rdpusa.com/executive-coaching, he talked a lot about the concept of Neuro-linguistic Programming. I wasn't familiar with the concept, so he suggested that I read this book to get an idea of the concept and how I can use it as part of my coaching. It has been very helpful in giving me a platform to work from in my coaching sessions and in implementing the suggestions my business coach makes during our sessions.
