Understanding NPL basics
NPL comes from one simple question its creators dared to ask. If we have two people learning the same things, why does one succeeds and the other doesn’t? Being the Western world based on this idea of equality, access to the same things, that is an extremely important subject to study.
It analyzes the strategies used for those who were successful in reaching one goal and relates the thoughts, language, and behavior involved in that experience. The idea, and what its creators did was to build models and learn from there. Bandler and Grinder offered training based on the models they created.
The outcome of the training was that other people could use the same mechanisms and processes of those who were considered successful in the first place.
One of the great tools created was then NPL Modelling. It is the explanation of the differences between the processes of someone that can achieve a goal, and someone who can’t, starting from the same background of knowledge or capacities.
It’s considered the highest skill create within NPL, and through it, it’s possible to capture patterns of success.
