I was responding to a friends email, btw he is a neuroscientist
We were discussing people claiming neuro linguistic programming as a science.
It might look like weird rambling but thought I would share. What are thoughts? On NLP?
Below is my response
Good story,I’ll tell you next time we hang out but basically I had a business associate and he was a coach that keep going to seminars to do NLP and he always trying his NLP techniqeus on the athletes and they really didn’t pick up on it, they were just always irritated by this coach they could never put their finger on it. One day I broke it to him that his NPL didn’t work and it crushed him, them he claimed he never tried the techniques when it was 100% obvious that he was trying his voodoo. I totally broke this guy and completely changed our relationship.
simple relaxation, breathing, movement, meditation and goal setting exercises with athletes that want to work on mental skills.
I am great with coaching mental skill, I do it all the time the guys just sometime guys want a different guy to chat with besides their coach.
the Neuro-Assoiciations? if thats what it is we were talking about was what I called key words NA might just be fancy word (marketing) I was telling him about working with athletes and getting them to do multiple things by saying one key word, it comes with building relationship. Example RE-Set means Hands Up, Elbows In, Move Your Head, Come Forward Behind a Jab. Re-Set might me something entirely different to anther fighter that fights differently or even to the same fighter if he were in a different situating.
