Summary This book is the first to fulfill the need for an enquiring, research-based and critical approach to the practice of Neuro-Linguistic Programming in business and organisations. It is essential reading for anyone who is interested in this innovative field of practice. NLP can be an effective and creative approach to developing people, yet is hampered by a lack of understanding on the one hand, and on the other by its failure so far to address some key concerns. Here you will discover everything you need to know about what NLP is, where it came from, how it links to other streams of thought, what the research evidence says, and how NLP approaches key issues such as ethics. Whether you are a practitioner, a client, a trainee, or someone who is thinking of using NLP, you will gain a new, deeply informed perspective on this field of practice
"Addressing the need for a discerning, research-based discussion of NLP, this book seeks to answer the many questions that clients, potential users and practitioners ask, including: what is NLP and what can it best be used for? This book looks at the research and theory behind NLP, also exploring claims that it is a pseudoscience"--Provided by publisher
