Neuro-linguistic programming – NLP is a communication model based on the subjective study of the language, communication, personal growth and development. It is a system of attitudes, skills and techniques that form a method of understanding the way we think, communicate and process emotions.
NLP aims to teach us to understand our inner life, our internal strategies and mechanisms, performances, motivations, drives, emotions, limiting factors, the reception and processing of information and their impact on our behavior and on other people. NLP answers the question: “How do things work?”.
NLP opens the doors to the achievement of excellence and shapes it by defining internal strategies, communication patterns, attitudes and specific ways of thinking. It opens the possibility for other people to do the same easily and effortlessly.
“Neuro” refers to the brain and the nervous system, how information is received and processed. We perceive the world around us through our senses. We use our eyes to see (sense of sight), and also we perceive the world through hearing (sense of hearing), tasting (sense of taste), smelling (sense of smell), touching and feeling – physically and emotionally (kinesthetic). The stimuli, i.e. the information from the external environment that we receive through these channels (senses) are then processed by the nervous system. In this way, we create our own “map of the world”, i.e. our own perception of reality.
