NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a name that includes the three important components involved in producing Change: neurology, language and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create. Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behavior (programming). It was originally developed by studying the patterns of communication and thinking of highly successful people. From these studies have come many understandings about human behavior and change, and methods for learning.
