  • Business NLP: Know thy self and others for long term success
    By 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”?  Because by actively understanding yourself and others, you can appreciate and act accordingly in response to the dynamic nature of a relationship.  For example, we were working with an overseas associate to create an alliance two years ago.   Both, “Tom” and “Peter” are in partnership and …
  • New Code NLP – The modern approach
    By Michael Carroll, nlpacademy.co.uk The field of NLP is moving forward in an exciting new direction.

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; it …

Look for strange behaviours in people, patterns of relating, walking, dodging, greeting… Noticing the larger patterns So much to be said when we mentally speed up people we are modelling and this gives you a long-distance hint into what you can notice.

  • Podcast: Michael Arbib on Mirror Neurons
    Added by Mark Spencer, ITANLP Trainer, Educator and Coach 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. Brain Science Podcast #39: Michael Arbib on Mirror Neurons Originally Posted …
