MISSION AND VISION

Vision, Mission, and Values
 

Membership in the ISNS (International Society of Neuro-Semantics) is dependent upon sharing the Vision, Mission, and code of ethics (values). ISNS is the governing board which provides Certification for Neuro-Semantic Trainers and Meta-Coaches.

The Vision:

Our vision in Neuro-Semantics is to make explicit the processes by which we create rich and inspiring meanings and then integrate them into our performance. Neuro-Semantics, as the performance of the highest and most enhancing meanings, focuses on applying what we know to ourselves and to close our knowing-doing gap and unleashing our highest potentials.

Our vision is to launch an international community of professional men and women who both love and know Neuro-Semantics and who live it. We see people taking NLP models and patterns to a higher level in performance and attitude as they add the Meta-State model to their understanding. Because reflexivity is built into the Meta-States model, our vision is that of people effectively applying the patterns to ourselves. We envision "walking our talk" and manifesting it as our congruence and integrity as our attractor frame in Neuro-Semantics. We envision a collaborative and cooperative style since we can do so much more together than individually. We envision setting and living by the higher frames of abundance leading to win/win collegial relationships and mutual accountability. We envision a community of men and women, professional in their business dealings, effective, productive, and high performers.

The Mission:

Our Mission is to model the structure of excellence, expertise, and mastery. We model human experience to extend our understanding and to create increasingly more effective patterns for improving the quality of our lives, families, and organizations. Our aim is to eliminate the knowing-doing gap that prevents the full experiencing of the great ideas and principles. Our mission is to take our skills and experiences to higher levels of personal power and focus, genius states, integrity, creativity, cooperation, resilience, etc.

We will apply Meta-States to new areas and to develop new models and patterns that affect our health and fitness, wealth creation, leadership, cultural change, political change, etc. In a word, our mission to produce the most robust performance of our highest and most inspiring meanings.
