For a return on investment, many organizations around the world have used the technology of NLP to assist them in achieving their corporate objectives. NLP is useful in any situation in which people must communicate in order to produce positive results.


Projects in which NLP has been used:

  • Diners Club trained every manager and representative in the customer service area in NLP skills for handling customer and internal communication. The net result was a 254% increase in customer spending, and a 67% reduction in customer loss. The Customer Service Department, previously a cost center, became a revenue-producing part of the organization.
  • BMW in England modeled the communication patterns of the top 1% in sales. After determining the successful behaviors of these salespeople, the skills were taught to every salesperson in the organization. Sales of a new-introduced product greatly exceeded projections.
  • American Express trained twenty-four line managers from all over Asia to become transformational trainers. With no previous training experience, these employees became the heart of “American Express Quality Leadership”, an area-wide initiative to encourage every employee to take personal responsibility for quality in customer service.


How NLP has assisted business professionals

A manager tailors his approach to staff development and motivation to the individual thinking patterns of each staff member. In a performance review, he identifies the employee’s motivation strategy, i.e. how the employee motivates him/herself, and incorporates this naturally into the employee’s development plan

A team member presents a proposal in a planning meeting. He begins by gaining rapport and accord in the group. He then incorporates highly valued criteria representing each faction in the team into the design and communication of his idea. This makes the idea more accessible to each participant in the meeting, and therefore more persuasive.

A customer service representative handles a call from an irate customer. She establishes rapport with the customer, gently leads him into a calmer state of mind, pinpoints the problem, and solves it.

An internal consultant is part of an international project. He notices cross-cultural communication problems developing between project team members. Reading their non-verbal cues, he “translates” each group’s intentions to the other group and prevents delays in the project due to misunderstandings.
