What is Neuro Linguistic Programming and What Does it Have to Do with Trial Lawyers?
What is Neuro Linguistic Programming? According to NLP.com:
NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming, is the art and science that can be described in a nutshell, as an attitude and a methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques.
First, the attitude of NLP is one of curiosity and experimentation. Next, the methodology is modeling, which is the process of duplicating excellent behavior. Another person's behavior can be duplicated by studying what that person does inside their head (language, filters, programs, etc.) to produce results.
Neuro Linguistic Programming can be used to be more convincing to a jury, run a better office and even be more successful and happier. What’s not to like about that? I’ve been hearing about NLP for over 20 years (since interrogation school in 1983) and have finally been getting into it. It can truly make a difference at trial and we’ll be discussing NLP in more detail as we go along. It’s not as funky and new agey as it first sounds.
