Neuro Linguistic Conditioning, NLC.
Back in the 1970's a group of academics stumbled into a complete new approach to
personal change called NLP= neuro-linguistic programming. The original
intention of John Grinder & Richard Bandler and later Gregory Bateson was to
identify the patterns used by three of the world's best personal change
therapists, so that those patterns could be shared with others. What
actually happened was-- a new therapy, NLP, was created.
= all behaviour stems from our neurological processing of sight, hearing,
smell, taste, touch and feeling. The idea being that we experience the
world through our senses and respond to it mentally and physically...
thoughts manifest behaviours.
Linguistic = the method by which we
organise our thoughts and behaviours and communicate with other people.
Programming = the way we organise our ideas and actions to manifest
Over the last 30 years it has become clear that the idea of
programming carries with it a major misconception, namely, absolute
permanence. If one programmes a computer, the change is fixed until
the code is rewritten. Human beings are far more complex than
computers and as such are able to add their own code and change the way they
are programmed at will. Thus, in the true sense of the word,
is not what is going on. And clients are setup to think in
terms of pass and fail-- hence remarks such as, "The programmes not working any more"
Experience reveals 'conditioning' to be a more accurate description of how
human beings really experience the process of change.
Conditioning = offers the prospect of fluctuation which is more inline with
human experience. It makes sense to say: Julie and John are in good
condition, they are ready to do what they need to do. Similarly, it
can be said that Julie and John are out of condition. Condition is
something that can be improved and must be maintained.
Think of the concept of
fitness, you would not go for one 10mile run and then announce to the
world... "I am fit". Quite the opposite is more
likely. Physical fitness requires application and
monitoring. So it is with habit change, we have to monitor and check
that we are still following the correct regime for us in the context of our
lives, now. Conditioning has
flexibility built in.
The Directed Mindset approach to change is
Neuro Linguistic Conditioning. We help our clients to set up a system
that supports their needs now and into the future.
It is important to
remember that Directed Mindsets has one major definite purpose, to help
people create and maintain emotional, social, mental, physical and spiritual prosperity.
Which means that when we assist a person to condition a new habit pattern of
behaviour we do it within the context of emotional, social, mental, physical
and spiritual prosperity rather than just limiting ourselves or our clients to a quick bit
of behavioural change.
And that's what makes us different from
just about every other personal change practitioners on the planet.
