NLP for entrepreneurial mindset

have you ever heard about NLP?

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
it is a new and growing tools for thinking and decision making.
it is a soft skills - sort of manual for the brain.
and it is a techniques for change.

neurology, language and programming are three most influential components involved in producing human experience.
- neurological system regulates how our bodies function (the biology of thinking process);
- language determines how we interface and communicate with other people; and
- programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create.

i went to a seminar on "NLP for strategic management" last saturday.
obviously, the seminar was compulsory.
yelah kan weekend di bulan syawal baik pergi open house daripada pergi seminar, sigh.

the talk was given by dr. ian halsall, a ukm-gsb senior visiting fellow.
a little background on him, he was with shell, procter & gamble and dupont for 11 years before he became an entrepreneur.
he has 14 years experience in running his own business and currently is an owner of 3 companies.
he is also an author with five books published - mostly on NLP in business.
apart from a senior visiting fellow for ukm-gsb, he is also a visiting lecturer at insead (singapore campus).
ohh anyway, he got his PhD from cambridge and an MBA from Warwick business school.

overall, the talk was interesting and we've learned a few of new knowledge from him.
i said a few of because the talk was basically just like an introduction for NLP.
honestly, that was the 1st time i've ever heard about NLP - never came across that term before.

i will not explain too much on NLP - well, you can google it for more info.
but overall it's about how brain functioning and how to get ppl to follow us, the role of language in persuasion and motivation and the roles of automatic responses and conditioning in ppl.
it's a good skills btw, especially for entrepreneur.
