The vast bulk of developmental work in NLP happened during its most fertile and creative period under Bandler and Grinder on the West Coast in the 1970s.

Even ‘New Code of NLP’ (as opposed to what is now called ‘Classic Code of NLP’) has been around since the 1990s. This aimed at putting more emphasis on the subconscious to select the resources required to bring about changes.

However, the work of Robert Dilts, one of the originators of NLP, continues extending its boundaries. He is a leading thinker whose work includes the development of what has become known as ‘Systemic NLP.’ “Some of his techniques and models include: Reimprinting, Integration of Conflicting Beliefs, Sleight of Mouth Patterns, The Spelling Strategy, The Allergy Technique, Neuro-Logical Levels, The Belief Change Cycle, Generative NLP Patterns, the Unified Field Theory for NLP and many others.”
