This fascinating inquiry into the minds of these three exceptional men unveils the strategies by which they were able to explore and uncover the ‘deeper structures’ of the mind, nature and the future, and in doing so, change our world.
Examine Freud’s strategies for observation, analysis and interpretation by focusing on seemingly trivial details. Investigate Leonardo’s strategies for stimulating his imagination, improving his memory and probing the ‘first principles’ of nature by ‘chunking’ and synthesizing the core elements of a system. Learn how Nikola Tesla developed his ability to visualize to the degree that the only laboratory he needed in order to develop his incredible inventions was the one in his imagination.
By combining the power of NLP with the brilliance and wisdom of some of history’s greatest geniuses and innovators, Dilts is able to model and present simple but effective techniques for changing beliefs and behavior
