Successful Living Tips

How to build great relationships

”Who ever is going to be responsible for dealing with the consequences of the decision, makes the final decision” is one of the understandings that served us well in both business conduct and personal relationships. This is based on the NLP process of Outcome, Intention and Consequences, developed by John Grinder.

This is especially useful in a blended family situation, when one parent is responsible for their biological children.

Business NLP: Know thy self and others for long term success

By Sonya Yeh Spencer, ITA NLP Trainer, Educator, Coach
The old Chinese saying, roughly translated here, “Know thy self and your enemy will ensure you win every time” doesn’t sit so well with me these days. I prefer to think “Know thy self and others for long term success”. Why do I say for “long term success”? Read more

New Code NLP: The Modern Approach
By Michael Carroll, ITANLP Master Trainer, Educator, Coach

The field of NLP is moving forward in an exciting new direction. NLP was originally coded using the underlying principles of early computers, hence the name ‘programming’. Imagine if we all insisted on using computers developed in the 1970s. While that may sound crazy, many in NLP are following that logic in sticking with the NLP of the 1970s. Yes, the Classic Code of NLP is great and some of the fundamentals do not change; it paved the way for the new developments. If you want the latest and most powerful change processes, take a look at the New Code of NLP. Read more

Rapport Building: Insight into raising voice tone to build rapport
By Steve Andreas, NLP Trainer, Educator, Developer
“Ah, a linguistic question! This phenomenon is known in linguistics as ‘high rising terminal,’ or HRT. Its origins have been variously located as the American West or New Zealand (the latter where it is widely used, as I experienced when I taught linguistics on the South Island for several years). It’s also found in Australia and a number of other spots in the world.
An Australian study found it was used more by the younger generation. A New Zealand study noted ‘use of HRTs being favored by young Maori and by young Pakeha [people of European descent] women’”

Dr. Michael Arbib on Mirror Neurons

A mirror neuron is a neuron that fires both when an animal or human acts and also when the human or animal observes the same action performed by another.

From an NLP perspective, we would say that the functions of Mirroring were discovered 20 years earlier by Grinder and Bandler during the earliest days of the creation of NLP and it took some years for the Scientific community and the associated instruments (such as fMRI) to prove or rediscover them.

John Grinder in Australia

The Healer Within
Grinder & Bostic St Clair, Melbourne, Australia (Date: 11th-13th June, 2010. 9.30am until 5.30pm). The New Code of NLP in The Healer Within – The New Code of NLP is a fundamental reorganisation and recoding of NLP. It focuses on the interface between conscious attention, the cognitive unconscious and the manipulation of state towards excellence.

In the New Code (as opposed to the original Classic Code), NLP co-originator John Grinder has outlined and described the distinction between NLP as a model making endeavour and NLP as an application. This distinction ensures practitioners fully understand how to apply NLP patterns to their personal lives while also helping others apply it to their own lives.
