Abstract:

Neuro-Linguistic Programming NLP is a model of human communication and behavior. The article introduces basic NLP concepts and their scientific foundation. The article explains why and how NLP is being evaluated and used within DOD. The article suggests several ways NLP can contribute to the Air Force mission. The article concludes that the results of DOD applications of LNP indicate that NLP has the potential to significantly improve human productivity and our military capability. The Air Force can apply NLP across the spectrum of its activities. A program stressing new human technologies will have immediate payoffs in terms of resource savings and improved human performance and will complement the current Air Force emphasis on using new materiel technologies to improve the reliability and maintainability of weapon systems. Some NLP applications with potential to significantly contribute to the Air Force mission include modeling the skills and talents of experts to improve or develop new training programs and reduce training times and costs improving interpersonal communication and leadership skills of supervisors producing psychological or behavioral changes in psychotherapy screening, selecting, or recruiting personnel and identifying human engineering factors in weapon and training systems design and development.
