Announcing the NLP Unified Code of Ethics
April 1, 2022:
For the first time in the history of NLP, the main global associations have created and adopted a NLP Unified Code of Ethics.
When in 2011, the coaching world announced that the main professional bodies had worked together to develop a unified charter (effectively their code of ethics) for coaching and mentoring, this was a fantastic leap forward for the coaching sector. It showed how the professional bodies were working together to make it easier to self-regulate and raise standards of practice.
Of course, NLP is known for modelling best practice so, in recent months, the main globally recognised NLP Associations have been generatively collaborating to develop something similar for the same reasons…to enable better self-regulation and raise standards of practice for the delivery of NLP services.
The outcome is that we are very proud to announce that the NLP Unified Code of Ethics is officially launched today, 1st April 2022, and has been adopted by ANLP International CIC (ANLP), International Association for Neuro-Linguistic Programming (IANLP), International Association of NLP Institutes (IN) and International NLP Trainers Association (INLPTA).
In a field which has been known to model division in the past, the Unified Code of Ethics represents great teamwork, flexible and dynamic decision-making between all the Associations. This is driven by mutual respect, modelling of the NLP presuppositions and a cohesive desire to bring unity, professionalism and even more credibility to our field.
The Associations share the Unified Code of Ethics and each Association has its own Code of Ethical Conduct that fully complements it.
We have many reasons to be grateful for the positive benefits of NLP each and every day and this move by our Associations is a further cause for celebration for the whole field of Professional NLP!
