NLP and Leadership

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) comprises a broad range of tools that every good leader needs.

Leadership is an important part of our everyday experience. At work, play, or home, leadership is involved in one way or another.  Furthermore, no person is born a leader, leaders are created with training, learned skills, and defined behaviours. Research from Harvard and Stanford found that only 15% of career advancement relates to technical skills and knowledge. People skills account for the other 85%.

Leadership  has undergone profound changes in the last 50 years. The shift away from the command and control mentality to a more democratic one reflects changes in our society.

 Many leadership theories were developed by interviewing experts who had achieved results in a particular time and context. In contrast, the NLP theory observes experts, notices when changes occur, and what behaviours preceded the changes. It involves finding the differences between those who lead well and those who don't.

Learning good leadership skills involves a combination of theory and activities involving feedback, action learning, and mentoring.  NLP techniques include state management, behaviour change and changes of beliefs. Behaviours include physiology, verbal and non-verbal language, voice tone and physical action.
