Definition of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming):
A specific coaching technique that provides useful insights into oneself.
What is NLP?
NLP was co-founded by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s. They claimed it would be
instrumental in finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives. They coined the title
to denote a supposed theoretical connection between neurological processes ('neuro'), language
('linguistic') and behavioural patterns that have been learned through experience ('programming') and
that can be organised to achieve specific goals in life (source: Wikipedia).
Your coach has been trained in NLP which provides specific tools, techniques and exercises that can be
used in the coaching process.
What are the benefits?
The added value from our point of view is the three dimensional aspect of the exercises. This gives fresh
insights when combined with the more conventional talking/listening aspects of coaching. NLP is
particularly valuable in exploring certain group dynamics in your (working) life by literarily taking on
each individual’s position. It allows us to gain insights into those inner voices that sabotage us while
trying to reach our goals. NLP offers a unique sensory-based approach, which calls for the integration
of both the conscious and unconscious mind.
