The purpose of this thesis is developing leadership skills to leaders, managers, teachers, and followers by using Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The leaders have many challenges when they lead their teams. These problems are communicating with others, building trust with their teams, and establishing rapport with their followers. NLP has many techniques such as anchoring, mirroring, and some skills like feedback, affinity, and coaching which can improve and develop the relationship and communication between the leaders and their followers. This paper relies on qualitative research because it provides human experience, actions, and feelings. In addition to, it gives a chance to analyze the data in depth. My master thesis relies on original interviews and secondary interviews. Furthermore, the initial interviews are done by emails because of lack time to NLP coaches. The findings proved that NLP could enhance leadership skills as follow: Model can help the people to model top leaders. Model is different from copying. The person can select the suitable technique from the model leaders. On another hand, the people take every method by copying even if it doesn't fit his personality. Rapport helps managers to have a high channel of communicating with their teams. Feedback is beneficial for leaders and followers as well. The boss needs input from his teamwork as he gives feedback to them. We can summarize that NLP helps the leaders, managers, and teachers to improve and develop their skills regarding their relationship way with their teamwork and their influencing on them. NLP enhances the communicating way between followers and their boss via rapport, model, and feedback.
