SHIFTWORK: THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK


After more than five years and two aborted efforts, Linda has a book to share. Before she reads from SHIFTWORK, she'll talk about the journey from her early encounters with NLP to a unique perspective on what was really happening in the NLP training room. It's been a long and winding road as Linda worked to distill the power in NLP and separate it from the jargon, fuzzy thinking and bad applications that have plagued its development. With the examples and the support of members of the NLPCT community, we finally have a book that demonstrates how the practice of NLP helps someone recognize the person they see in the mirror and like what they recognize. The heart of influence is integrity and the only force strong enough to build integrity is. . .  you'll have to listen to Linda speak to find out how the sentence (and the story) ends.
