NLP when used in the business world can help you identify what you really want and need in the workplace, and then give you the skills, flexibility and positive thinking patterns to achieve it.

Through the modelling techniques developed by Bandler and Grinder, NLP provides an understanding of how people learn, how people think, and how they do things excellently. It has given us the insight in to how some people succeed and how to replicate their success for ourselves. Through the use of NLP, businesses and their employees can quickly develop new skills to communicate, motivate, influence, negotiate, lead, and empower.

NLP has a tremendous range of techniques and tools that can be applied within the business world, some of the outcomes of which include:

There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.

Any behaviour or action will result in an outcome which in turn will generate a response. Feedback allows us to determine if we are on the right path to achieving our desired outcomes. All successful people are used to failure, but acknowledge this as a learning not a negative. "It's hard to fail, but it's worse never having tried to succeed." [Theodore Roosevelt].

The meaning of any communication is the response it gets.

The intended message of any communication is not always the one the recipient will receive, nor will the response it elicits necessarily be the desired or expected one. A communicator who is able to accurately assess the impact of his communication on his audience and adapt accordingly will be a successful one. "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion it has taken place." [George Bernard Shaw].

The person with the greatest flexibility of thinking and behaviour is likely to have the greatest influence.

Although we may not always be able to control external events, it is within our control to decide how we react and respond to them. Flexibility is a prerequisite of success. A person with flexibility will repeatedly change his behaviour to ensure he achieves his desired goal or outcome. "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got." [Henry Ford]

There is a solution of every problem.

If you believe there is a solution to every problem there is a greater chance you will find it. Problems can contribute greatly to any learning process. It is almost impossible to achieve success without having identified the means to overcome problems encountered along the way. "The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem." [Theodore Rubin]
