Richard Bandler Podcast: NLP Co-Founder

Get the Life You Want: The Secrets to Quick and Lasting Life Change with Neuro-Linguistic Programming

 
Richard BandlerRichard Bandler

An in-depth conversation with Richard Bandler, co-developer of NLP - Neuro-Linguistic Programming
Welcome to a special Leadership Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio, with Peter Clayton reporting.

Joining us today is Richard Bandler, co-founder of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Richard is the author of many books on NLP, one of the latest -- and perhaps most accessible, is titled, Get the Life You Want: The Secrets to Quick and Lasting Life Change with Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Hailed as one of the greatest geniuses in the field of personal change, and the father of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Richard Bandler has helped tens of thousands of people around the globe rid themselves of 'incurable' phobias, fears, anxieties, addictions, negative habits, and past traumas often in a single session.

In Get the Life You Want, Bandler shares his insights, controversial signature wit, and more than thirty-five NLP techniques that can bring about quick and lasting change in every area of your life; from breaking free of toxic or non-productive relationships, to delivering business presentations without a knot in your stomach, to quitting smoking for good. By putting NLP into practice, you can literally change your brain chemistry without expensive drugs or endless therapy sessions; most of all, you can finally learn how to run your own brain instead of rehashing the same problems.

Questions Peter Clayton Asks Richard Bandler:

Richard, thank you for speaking with me today. Perhaps we could start with a definition of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. What is it?

In the introduction to your book you say, "Very simply, this is a process of teaching people to think differently." Could you elaborate on that statement a bit for our listeners?

PART ONE: GETTING TO KNOW YOUR OWN BRAIN seems to be the critical foundation for all the lessons you introduce in the other three parts. I know that Neuro-Leadership has been an important recent development in business leadership, and I'm attending the NeuroLeadership Summit next month in Boston -- so there is science behind much of what you've been writing about for years.

In your new book, you write about changing your neurochemistry. I think our listeners would be very interested in knowing more about the link between neurology and "getting the life you want".

Tell us how you think the reader can best learn from your book. Getting the most out of the book is not just a matter of quickly reading through each section. You talk about the best conditions and approach that can make learning from the book most effective fro creating lasting change. Describe this process a bit.

After getting that essential foundation from Part One, can the reader go directly to the sections that are most relevant to him or her?

For example, in today's economy and job market, getting laid off has been devastating to so many people. You give some valuable strategies for helping people recover and move on with their lives.

I was also moved by your own account of physical recovery.

Your strategies for preparing for a job interview and making presentations will also be especially helpful for all the people looking for jobs in this market. Can you talk a bit more about these key issues?

A lot of the success of these strategies relates to attitude, doesn't it?

What haven't I asked that you think it's important to know?
