NLP 4th Generation
Rachel Hott, PhD and Colette Normandeau
The Evolution of NLP. From the NLP Leadership Summit January 2018
Day 3, January 14th, 2018, at the NLP Leadership Summit, and 17 of us were choosing to explore what is beyond this latest iteration called NLP. “What will the 4th generation bring,” we pondered. Simultaneously, 62 other attendees were in groups discussing standards, marketing, branding, an international global body, technology, research and the big picture of what is NLP, and then there we were, saying, “What’s next?”
Almost everyone I know owns a cell phone. However, not everyone has the same model, yet there are always newer models to purchase. What is the same and what is different about the next new device? Eventually most phones require updates in order to perform at their best. When we discussed what is next, this cell phone metaphor is introduced by Robert Dilts. He acted as co-facilitator for the group and in many ways Robert and his contributions to NLP would be an example of the earliest phone models that have now been updated, perhaps 47 times!
