NLP is a technology. It's got techniques that you can learn and apply. Well, it is skill based so you need to learn the skill in order to implement the techniques otherwise the techniques could fail but your skills will not.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the study of excellence, which describes how the language of our mind produces our behaviour, and allows us to model excellence and to reproduce that excellent behaviour. NLP takes the viewpoint of looking at "how" the system works, not "why".
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a simple, skillful technique for studying what goes on inside a person (subjective experience) - the processes people use to build their unique, distinctive maps or models of the world. Neuro-Linguistic Programming is an experiential approach. Therefore, if a person wants to understand an action, they must perform that same action to learn from the experience.

The six logical levels of change in NLP
NLP practitioners believe there are natural hierarchies of learning, communication, and change.
Purpose and spirituality: This level from the Logical Levels theory is about the deeper-rooted question: ‘what else are we here for?’ This level can also be called spirituality, referring to the larger system we might be a part of.
Identity: Identity is the person you perceive yourself to be and includes your responsibilities and the roles you play in life.
Beliefs and values: How your personal Values support or hinder you.
Capabilities and skills: These are your 'internal behaviours'. The level of innate capabilities and learned skills which you have and how effectively you use these.
Behaviors: Behaviors are the specific actions you perform.
Environment: Your surrounding: the people and places that you are interacting with, and responding to, when you are engaged in a particular activity. This is the lowest level of change.
The purpose of each logical level is to organize and direct the information below it. As a result, making a change in a lower level may cause changes in a higher level. However, making a change in a higher level will also result in changes in the lower levels,
according to NLP theory.
