Organisation Development & the Neuro-Linguistic Technologies: How to Marry Hard Science and Soft Skills in an Increasingly ‘Evidence-Based’ World
A central theme in Organisation Development is the ‘learning organisation’, which, for many, is the recognised blueprint of how organisations will have to behave in the future – not only to thrive but in order to survive. Yet many NLP practitioners seem unsure as to what a learning organisation is, what organisation development means, and how best to help organisations learn and develop themselves along these lines.
At the same time, the ‘neuro-linguistic technologies’ have been recognised as a powerful toolbox of tools and techniques with which to ‘unlock people potential and maximise people performance’, whilst some have sought to dismiss them as ‘pop-psychology’ and ‘pseudo-science’, and ultimately not ‘evidence-based’.
This can present problems for NLP practitioners wanting to validate their model and methodology, evidence theory in practice and do so in both a rigorous yet relevant way.
This session explores the employment of the Neuro Linguistic Technologies in Organisation Development and how to marry hard science with soft skills in an increasingly ‘evidence-based’ world.
By attending this session, you will learn: (1) what the learning organisation is; and (2) what organisation development means. And how to use the neuro-linguistic technologies to both: (3) evidence theory in practice; and (4) do so in a rigorous yet relevant way.
This workshop will be relevant to those who use the neuro-linguistic technologies to help develop people within organisations. It will be particularly attractive to those who want to marry ‘hard science’ with ‘soft skills’ in an increasingly ‘evidence-based’ world.
