According to a number of surveys conducted by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education and JobStreet, there are three main reason why Malaysian fresh graduates are unemployed: poor attitude, lack of English proficiency, and poor communication skills.
This is indeed a wake up call that requires some fine-tuning in life, so if you’ve ever doubted the efficiency of self-improvement workshops, you might be surprised at what Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) can do. It is the most advance set of communication skills ever developed, something you really shan’t miss out on if being a better person is part of your long term goal.
First of all, what is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)?
NLP is a behavioural-modification technique created by Richard Bandler, John Grinder and Frank Pucelik in the 1970s, a tool commonly used by mental health practitioners to initiate positive change in your life, making you more conscious in the way you act so you can achieve your goals.
“NLP provides tools and presuppositions about what human beings are, what communication is and what the process of change is all about,” said Robert Dilts, developer, author, trainer and consultant in the field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
In fact, you might already be practicing bits of NLP without realising it. That being said, all you need to master the techniques in NLP is already inside you. Doesn’t matter if you’re trying to lose weight, score employment, or form more meaningful relationships, here are some of the ways NLP can help with employment!
Eradicates bad habits to increase efficiency
Ever wonder why some people perform or live life better than others? Chances are, they practice good habits and have a clear vision of what their values are. NLP is essentially a study that helps guide you towards your values, something that determines what you stand for so that it’ll be easier to choose a company you want to work for, or the kinds of people you want to surround yourself with.
Keeps you calm so you can carry on
NLP teaches you to work on dissociation, a technique that stops you from reacting in overly emotional ways. When you learn ways to manage your emotional state, you’ll learn that the mind is an extremely powerful tool that can change outcomes, depending on how you react to a situation. Having a clear head can also provide positive thoughts.
Helps you be a master of communication
Again, it all comes down to how good you are around other people. You don’t have to be the life of the party, however, it’s crucial to have good communication skills because how we act and what we say has its effects on us and those around us. NLP builds rapport, a skill most important when dealing with people so you can ace that job interview! This technique in NLP teaches you to mirror body language and many other ways to improve emotional intelligence.
Who can benefit most from this NLP and this event?
It’s open to anyone who’s interested in self-improvement, and is especially useful for those who are in the business community, therapists, entrepreneurs, HR personnels, psychologists, corporate executives, and academicians.
Not surprisingly, high profile celebrities have also turned to NLP to boost their careers and personal growth. Pharrell Williams is outspoken about his love for NLP as well as Russell Brand, who declares NLP as his life saviour. Even Oprah Winfrey is a fan of the programme! Oprah’s ability to manage an audience and motivate them at the same time is all credited to NLP.
There’s so much to learn from NLP, so if you’re intrigued to know more about it, there will be a glittering and dazzling international event at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre on 25 to 27 May 2018 where all the top, international NLP masters will be present such as co-founder Frank Pucelik himself!
