21st February 2012: John Overdurf In Zagreb

John Overdurf is an interesting neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) trainer. He recently posted a recording of an NLP introductory session held in Zagreb, Croatia, in September 2010.  The session features Overdurf’s ‘All You Are Is Change’ routine; a Milton Erickson story; a discussion of nominalisation (turning processes or verbs into things or nouns); and Overdurf’s personal interpretation of psychology and the quantum zeno effect. Overdurf’s presentation has some seamless metaphors, nested loops, anchors, timelines, and other NLP techniques.

13th February 2012: John Grinder on Human Excellence (1985)


Full-length clips of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) co-creators John Grinder and Richard Bandler are rare. This clip of Grinder from the early period of NLP New Code discusses NLP as a “technology of excellence”; eliciting, modelling and transferring behavioural strategies; Grinder’s provocative philosophy of learning; and strategies to integrate the insights from NLP Practitioner training. It’s like seeing a time capsule of NLP training after the ‘classic’ period of 1974-79 had ended.
