NLP training offers an opportunity to measurably develop one’s ability to precisely identify another’s internal thought process through interpreting specific language patterns and observable non-verbal indicators. How? By developing the trainees ability to observe and utilize sensory data. How is this important? People incorporate experiences and register information through their five senses. They then organize this sensory data to form a representation or impression of the world.
As an NLP practitioner is able to acutely observe the client’s behavior, s/he is then able to rearrange the elements of the thought pattern in any way desirable…to facilitate ease, rapid changes in feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. The value of NLP is its ability to furnish the practitioner and client with conscious choices and flexibility of behavior in areas including motivation, performance, decision-making, learning, communication, creativity, and emotional ease.
