Richard Friesen

What skill have you developed since leaving formal education that has been most useful in your career?

The skill from my training at NLP Marin has been by far the most useful in not only my career but my life. NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) started as a set of clinical tools derived empirically from some of the most successful therapeutic innovators. Despite its contentious history, NLP Marin provides a human framework from neuroscience models from the original assorted tools. This framework has made a difference not only in my personal life but how my clients have been able to move from a context of conflict to one of rapport with themselves and their world.
