Meeting Thursday July 5 - Neuro-linguistic Programming

We are very pleased to announce that the next Agile Scotland event, will be given by leading Neuro-linguistic Programming trainer and coach Michael Spence.

The first item of the Agile Manifesto is that we value "individuals and interactions over processes and tools"; the problem is that interactions between individuals often involves miscommunication, conflict, and power politics. Sometimes it can be too much for us poor geeks.

NLP was developed from a blend of hypnotherapy, family therapy, and psychotherapy. It models the way we experience and interact with the world. Amongst other things, NLP's models and techniques can help with

  • conflict resolution

  • selling ideas

  • changing behaviour

  • goal setting

We start at 19:30 at the Sinclair Knight Merz offices at 160 Dundee Street, Edinburgh, EH11 1DQ. Walking directions from Haymarket Station are here.
