How can teachers positively apply Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) strategies in the Classroom

Bookmark and Share

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a set of  wonderful and useful techniques to add to your own teaching toolbox.  This is a set of tools that can allow you to accomplish a number of things in your classroom, including developing a rapport and a better relationship with your students and helping your students improve in their schoolwork by helping them overcome problems and adopt a mindset that will ensure success.

Essentially, NLP is a way of helping a person change their behavior by changing the way in which they perceive the world.  This is based on the idea that every person has a unique perspective on the world or a unique world map that has been created from the experiences that person has had.  This perspective then determines how each person behaves in certain circumstances or how each person responds to certain emotions.

How does NLP for teachers differ from NLP in any of the other fields like sales, corporate office etc?  When it comes to the methods, it doesn’t really vary all that much.  The key is that, as a teacher, you have the opportunity to use the techniques of NLP to help a student during their prime developmental years, a time during which you can also teach the techniques to them, so that they will be better prepared as adults.

NLP for teachers is also different in the sense that, although you are still mimicking and “getting inside the head” of the other person, these are children, pre-teens, and teens.  Do you remember what your mind was like as a teenager?  This might be a challenge for the adult mind that might not only find it difficult to do this, but simply might not want to go back there.

Oh, but it’s worth it because when you can help a student using NLP, you can help that student make significant changes to their behavior patterns.  This in turn can help them:

  • Improve their school grades
  • Have more confidence and self-esteem
  • Improve their interactions with others
  • Learn to change their own behaviors
  • Improve their level of focus and concentration
