NLP can change your patterns of behaviour and perceptions, allowing irrational fears, phobias, habits, negative thoughts, suppressed emotions and much more to be overcome. Negative or outdated and inappropriate patterns of behaviour can be dropped or changed, in favour of new and more rewarding ways of thinking, behaving and being. So what does that mean to you? It means that by knowing how your brain works you can change so that it is always working for you and improving your life and the lives of those around you. Managers, teachers, trainers, therapists, consultants and coaches have become increasingly aware that competence has a task and relationship side. It is used widely now in all areas of business.
