This week’s interview is with a real innovator in NLP, my old friend and occasional mentor Jonathan Altfeld, international NLP trainer and developer of Knowledge Engineering and many other useful tools and patterns.
In the interview, Jonathan shares with us an important distinction that will make you a better coach, therapist or even mechanic: the difference between inductive and deductive reasoning, and when to use each. He also recommends some of the people he thinks are doing really worthwhile and original work in NLP, how working in different cultures makes you a better NLP trainer, and why you need to select your first NLP course and trainer carefully (with a couple of pointers on how to do that).
Here’s the link to Jonathan’s article explaining the difference between inductive and deductive reasoning:
