We are delighted to be welcoming Robert Dilts to NLPAA for an exclusive event, The Evolution of NLP.     

Robert has been involved in the development of Neuro-Linguistic Programming since its inception in the 1970s.  He is the author of 33 books and the founder of NLP University.  There is no better guest speaker to share the Evolution of NLP from its beginnings to the emerging third generation of NLP.

Through the years, NLP has developed some very powerful tools and skills for communication and change in a wide range of professional areas including: coaching, counselling, psychotherapy, education, health, creativity, law, management, sales, leadership and parenting. The many, many explicit techniques and procedures that make up the behavioural technology of NLP are presented in the ever-growing number of books, recordings and seminars that represent the development of the field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

NLP is now in its fourth decade as a field of study and has evolved considerably since its beginnings in the mid 1970s. As a third generation of NLP developers, trainers and practitioners move into the world, it is also time to acknowledge a new generation of NLP.

The applications of this new generation of NLP are generative, systemic and focused on high level issues such as identity, vision and mission. Third generation NLP emphasizes whole system change and can be applied to organizational and cultural development as well as to individuals, families and teams.

All generations of NLP focus on the structure and functioning of “mind” (this is the essence of “Neuro-Linguistic Programming”). The first two generations of NLP, however, placed attention primarily on the cognitive mind. Third generation NLP expands to include both somatic processes and larger system dynamics (i.e. “field”) in the total “unit of mind.” Thus, third generation NLP works with the interaction between three different intelligences or “minds”:

  1. A cognitive mind that emerges from the brain
  2. A somatic mind centered in the body
  3. A “field” mind that comes from our connection and relationships with larger systems around us

Third generation NLP aspires to develop and sustain an organic relationship of balance and alignment between these three minds in order to produce a deeper and more multi- dimensional intelligence.

This presentation will cover some of the new developments in NLP including centering in our somatic core, sponsoring the development of greater wholeness within people, and connecting through relationships to the wisdom and guidance within the larger systems (collective intelligence) around us. Third generation NLP techniques incorporate principles of self-organization, archetypes and what is known as “fourth position”—the felt sense of being a part of a larger system.

About Robert Dilts

Robert Dilts has been a developer, author, trainer and consultant in the field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) - a model of human behavior, learning and communication - since its creation in 1975 by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. A long time student and colleague of both Grinder and Bandler, Robert also studied personally with Milton H. Erickson, M.D., and Gregory Bateson.

In addition to spearheading the applications of NLP in education, creativity, health, and leadership, his personal contributions to the field of NLP include much of the seminal work on the NLP techniques of Strategies and Belief Systems, and the development of what has become known as 'Systemic NLP.' Some of his techniques and models include: Reimprinting, Integration of Conflicting Beliefs, Sleight of Mouth Patterns, The Spelling Strategy, The Allergy Technique, Neuro-Logical Levels, The Belief Change Cycle, Generative NLP Patterns, the Unified Field Theory for NLP and many others. In May, 2018, Robert was honored with the Lifetime Contribution Award by the Association for Neuro-Linguistic Programming (ANLP).
