NLP Theory or Model?
A theory seeks to explain the functioning of a person or system. A model describes the behavior precisely enough so that it can be reproduced.
What interests NLP is the how it happens, and the how do we want it to happen. To be complete and applicable in numerous fields, this model describes behaviors observable with the naked eye, but also the mental process that precedes and explains those behaviors.
The study of the structure and the subjective experience, NLP is a very powerful tool able to decrypt our internal and external functioning to develop our capacity to reproduce excellence, to succeed, to reach our potential.
The originality of the method is that it focuses on “what works” rather than what needs to be corrected, that we want rather than the causes of our difficulties. The question is how to make it work.
The object of NLP is the how and not the why.
