“Linguistics is our middle name”
I recall sitting in the room with John LaValle, President for The Society of NLP. He teaches NLP with co-creator Dr Richard Bandler. As he explained, one of his goals early on, was to be able to perform any skill, method or technique within the NLP model conversationally. To be able to do so requires understanding of how language influences and effects our thoughts. In essence, to study the exquisite use of language, starting with what is most useful.

My own background in sales ignited a deep curiosity. What could be achieved using all of the skills, methods, techniques of NLP, conversationally in a business boardroom, in a sales role, as a parent, in personal development and change work? In any situation where two people are interacting, surely the person using those skills would have a distinct advantage to influence the outcome.
The basic patterns and uses of The Meta Model and The Milton Model are both taught within an NLP Practitioner course. The awareness of how people use language is just the beginning. By practising and using the language patterns, you can identify the use of patterns by others. Therefore, you can employ these powerful NLP language patterns to be able to communicate with others in the way they best understand.
