Early Days of NLP
This fast moving DVD is a ‘must have’ for any serious student of NLP. Not only will you be laughing out loud at some of the stories that are shared but you will gain some real insights into how NLP techniques were developed. It was filmed live in San Francisco in 2009 and is full of anecdotes and stories about the founding days of NLP. Find out: What kind of work John Grinder did before he become a professor of Linguistics at the University of Santa Cruz. How NLP ‘really’ got its name. Everyone knows that it had something to do with computers, but there’s more… What Richard Bandler was like as a young person. Where anchoring came from, and how it changed the world. How eye accessing cues were discovered. What Milton Erickson was like as a little boy, and how his polio influenced him in becoming one of the greatest hypnotherapists in the world. What made Virginia Satir so magical as a family therapist. What role the famous psychologist Timothy Leary played in the development of Systemic NLP. Learn about the fascinating NLP backgrounds of Gregory Bateson, Aldous Huxley, Steve Andreas, Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir. And much, much more!

In this video two people who were around in the very early beginning days of NLP - Robert Dilts and Tim Hallbom - share stories about the founders of NLP and the people they modelled to create this discipline.
You will hear stories about Richard Bandler and John Grinder, the founders of NLP and gain some insight into how their personalities and uniques backgrounds were foundational to creating NLP (Like How Grinder's CIA training contributed to his part in creating NLP).
You will also hear stories about Milton Erickson and Virginia Satir -two of the original models for NLP.
But what I really liked about this video was not just the great stories (and the authors also share how they got involved with NLP) but the little lessons and insights that Dilts and Hallbom hare concerning the attitudes and perspectives that undergirded the creation of NLP as well as the attitudes perspectives that Erickson and Satir had that made their change work effective.
Dilts even share (albeit very briefly) his view as to why Bandler and Grinder eventually split -it is not shared in a tabloid-like manner but in a manner that is both insightful and instructive.
Now let me say that this is not an exhaustive work nor is it a modelling project -it's two guys sharing great stories of the early days of the creation of a great model of change.
If you are a student of NLP I believe you will definitely glean insights from the stories shared. And have a good time while litening and learning.
I highly recommend this DVD -and would love to see a part 2 with more stories about some of the others involved in those early days (like Leslie Cameron -Bandler, now Leslie Lebeau, David Gordon, and others).
Thank you Robert and Tim for the wonderful stories.
