What is NLP?

NLP is a very practical approach to human behavior. Initially created in the 1970's by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, NLP is a methodology for modeling excellence. It's primary focus is on how to operate your own mind and body to create what you want in life.

The discoveries made from the methodology of NLP have led to techniques that are used in business, education, and health, as well as therapy (and we've had participants attend our trainings from all of these various fields). It is often said that NLP has made the greatest contribution to the behavioral sciences in the last 30 years.

Throughout this training you will uncover and work with the processes that precede behavior. You will learn the very fabric of thought and action. And you will learn a set of skills that can be the foundation for all the goals in your life.

Before the development of NLP, we had explanations as to why we act in certain ways. Since NLP, we have the understanding of how we act in those ways.

Become a Certified NLP Practitioner and become your very best!

Introduction to Motivational Interviewing - AHA Conference
2024-02-28 at 16:28 Pacific Time

I enjoyed this AHA Conference Presentation on 'Introduction to Motivational Interviewing' by Randy Kasper. I so deeply respect and admire Randy, as a professor of AOS, and professionally. And I cannot express how grateful I am to have been privileged to learn from her throughout the last year of my AOS studies. I am already registered for the full Motivational Interviewing class, and excited to be in attendance for it on March 9, 2024. Particularly as my AOS year is nearing completion. I sincerely look forward to and hope to see more AHA events with the incredible Randy Kasper moving forward. I would be most inclined to jump at opportunities to further learn from her highly relational Human-Centered approach, and optimize applying her skillsets towards my own client base. Thank you HMI, AHA, and Professor Randy Kasper for another fantastic presentation.

I really enjoyed this introduction to Motivational Interviewing and found it inspiring. I can see how using this technique is entirely in sync with interviewing techniques we learn at HMI, but brings it to a higher level of understanding about being a good listener and asking open ended questions.
