Judith Delozier, Mastery, New Coding, and Systemic NLP
A New Coding of NLP was developed by John Grinder and Judith DeLozier in the early 1980s as a way to bring wisdom into the original technology and procedures of NLP. Judith describes the history, the seven elements which together make up New Code NLP, and an exercise in Active Dreaming. She concludes that the latest developments in NLP attempt to resolve the paradox of how to systematically model something when all codes (maps) can only partially reflect the holistic nature of systems.
Kauppi, Toivonen and Murphey, You Don’t Have to But You Can: observing our verbing
You may enjoy reading about how you can use modals to influence states. You do not have to read this article and allow yourself to become even more conscious of how you might shape your language to smoothly direct emotional attention. It’s is only something you could do when you want to and you feel curious about how you are going to increase your potential to help others.

Sue Knight, NLP and the Learning Organization

Franco & Menezes, NLP: an Appropriate Tool for Creating a Learning Organization
NLP can contribute significantly to the creation of a learning organization by providing insights that enable stable and ecological changes. The training of NLP techniques alone are in general not enough to achieve very stable results. An adequate orchestration of the use of NLP framework and integrative learning concepts can lead to long term changes.
Jay W Spechler, Modeling Excellence in Business
A process for modeling excellence in business using as examples the author’s modeling corporate Chief Executive Officers’ behaviors, and the most successful disability management programs in the United States. Specific NLP techniques and processes are shown to result in a high level of knowledge elicitation, and executive participation in the development of the author’s book, Reasonable Accommodation.
Richard Bolstad, NLP and the Five Elements: using NLP to heal the systemic imbalances behind ‘illness’
At the base of the Chinese traditional medical system is the model of five different phases that any energy system (including the human mind-body system) cycles through.This article explains how each specific physical dis-ease is a result of the effects of a metaprogram-like energy imbalance in ONE of the five phases. By identifying which of the five is out of balance, we can customize NLP processes to treat the core emotional issues essential to a particular person’s wellbeing and health.

Nelson Zink and Peter Wrycza, Levels of Development

Lucas Derks, The Social Panorama
A person’s social panorama consists of social representations around the self. Location (distance and direction) seems to be the critical submodality. Social relations and behaviour are changed when the location of social representations are changed. Exploring the social submodalities enriches NLP work with groups, teams, and social systems in general.
