I just learned about NLP this past weekend at the Chicago Coaching meetup, which was grouped with the NLP Practice Club. I'm very interested in learning more about NLP through this group.
I'd really like to develop better communication and listening skills in my work (and my personal life although that seems to come more naturally). In my work, as a web developer-designer, I'm often listening and problem solving for my clients. Or trying to sell and idea or concept. I also attend quite a few presentations and although I don't know that I'd ever do something like that, be a presenter of something, I'd like to build some confidence to do it. I've always been a very nervous public speaker. It'd be great to develop some strength and confidence in public speaking, even on a small scale, I can see it as very beneficial with clients.
Public speaking. Selling and idea or persuading. Listening.
I'm a self employed web developer / designer living in Chicago. I've been working as a freelancer for 8+ years. I'm a recent convert to a life of health and fitness and starting to become interested in meditation and the practice of mindfulness.
