NLP originated in the early 1970’'s in the University of California, Santa Cruz. It was developed by Dr Richard Bandler, a psychology student at the University, and John Grinder, an assistant professor of linguistics. Together they studied people who achieved great results especially in the fields of education, personal change and communication.
The name NLP refers to (neuro) the human nervous system, the brain and the five senses, (linguistic) the verbal and non-verbal language we communicate and (programming) the ability to structure our neurological and linguistic systems to achieve desired results. By using NLP to describe and elicit how an expert perceives, represents, communicates and encodes their expertise, it is then possible to replicate it for yourself. This is what we call Modelling, finding a quicker route. If one person can achieve a specific result or outcome it is possible to find out what they are doing and replicate it.
