The Four Pillars of NLP

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is considered one of the most reliable and results-oriented development approaches available today.

It zeroes in on personal and professional enhancement. Using a wide array of practical tools and findings of modern applied positive psychology, since its introduction in the 1970s, NLP has been regarded as a breakthrough model in human development. It has made the giant transition, over these years, from strict therapeutic models to contextualised professional development processes. This is sustained through the use of critical concepts in personal development, such as emotional intelligence, multiple intelligence theory, empathy, compassion, communication, and active listening, to name a few.

1. Outcome

Defined as: well-formed language, and design-specificity is necessary for every goal, whether large or small, before any investment of resources.

2. Rapport

What success is really based on is good communication skills and trusting relationships. The secret of developing such relationships comes down to rapport.

3. Sensory Acuity

Defined as: sensitivity, or acuity towards internal and external realities, which directly, or indirectly, affects the goal setting process.

4. Flexibility

Defined as: adaptability in relation to the adoption of new strategies and ideas about how the goal can be achieved.
