NLP in Education
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) not only provides mindsets, strategies and solutions to the challenges of teaching and learning, it can also help to motivate and engage students – and also go much further.
It enables teachers to develop the flexibility of response to create their own changes and stay resourceful and productive in the most testing of times. NLP represents the opportunity to raise standards of achievement and crucially to assure levels of wellbeing amongst staff and pupils alike.
NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling and language to produce the results they do. It’s about understanding others and ourselves; how we perceive the world around us and how this ultimately affects the way we behave and communicate.
Delegates from the education sector have reported that working through NLP programmes has assisted them to:
- Install strategies for effective learning
- Communicate effectively using the power of language with precision
- Change negative and unhelpful beliefs their students may have
- Establish and maintain rapport to bring reluctant students onboard
- Better understand what their students are thinking
- Change, create and maintain behavioural standards
- Understand the learning processes of their students to create more flexibility
- Create useful learning environments for their students and gather more information about their needs
- Elicit what their students’ really want so effective and motivational goals can be set
- Help pupils access and build internal resources so they realise they have their own answers
- Additionally, the NLP philosophy and procedures can help to secure significant improvements in the leadership and management of schools
