The human mind is the most powerful computer on earth. We’ve never needed its full capacity more than we do today - demands on managers are ever greater and more complex. The good news is that the key to tapping the full potential of your mind to make you a more effective and efficient manager is available now.

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) is well established as a powerful tool to develop your potential and make things happen. It can help you create order from chaos, but an order that is capable of changing and evolving in sympathy with the needs of your people and your business. This book will show you how to look beyond conventional teaching models for new ways of developing your management style and skills.

Managing with the Power of NLP demystifies NLP and shows you how to apply it to your daily managerial life for enhanced performance. It enables you to build effective strategies for leadership, communication and innovation and is packed with practical methods, applications and examples to make it easy to gradually implement them. Your team will notice the difference, and so will your boss!
