The Meaning of Communication is the Response You Get


This is a great presupposition of NLP. Presupposition is a fancy way of saying that this is an assumption that we believe to be true in the field of NLP. When I took linguistic classes my professor said, “If you ask for something and don’t get it, then you did not ask the right way.” […]


Striving for Excellence or Settling for Stagnation


I am here in Toronto at our NLP Practitioner Training. While Nicholas (our other trainer at The Empowerment Partnership) is on stage, I had an idea for a blog post. I see so many students on their paths. Some know how to take it to the next level, while others do not. You see, Nicholas […]
