[Video] What do we mean by Linguistic Skills?


When we talk about NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming - most people are quite happy that they understand that the "Neuro" bit means it's to do with the brain and the nervous system. "Linguistic" obviously means it's to do with language; and the 'Programming" is about habits and changing habits. 

So when we talk about linguistic skills, I think a lot of people assume they know what that means. But if you come back to it and say: "What are we actually talking about here?"  It's not just about the use of words. 

You see... most people think they're good at communicating.....

Very good revision of the topic. I do my best to make sure that the meaning of the words I use is received in the way I intend. The other challenge is delegating transmission of messages to members of staff. Their tendency is to re-word my message in a way that is meaningful to them, and not necessarily to the intended recipient. My favourite was the temporary secretary to a friend of mine who signed off letters "assuring you of the maximum inconvenience at all times".
