Practical NLP Podcast 5: The origins of NLP and what NLP is really about

In this episode, a (very) short history of the origins of NLP, and what Richard Bandler and John Grinder were up to when they developed it, from someone who wasn’t there at the time (but has heard a lot about it).

Featuring Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir, ‘genius’, a cabin in the redwoods, and a lot of red wine.

Plus, what is ‘neuro linguistic programming’ really about? It may not be quite what you think.
