De afgelopen weken heb ik meerdere malen het gezegde ‘E kuchu a korta’mi’ –het mes heeft mij gesneden- gelezen op social media in het kader van de politieke ontwikkelingen op ons eiland. Tevens heb ik een zeer interessante blog van Elodie Eloise gelezen, genaamd ‘het mes heeft mij gesneden’, waarin de link wordt gelegd tussen de huidige ontstane politieke situatie en het nemen van de verantwoordelijkheid hierin door de politiek. Of liever gezegd: het gebrek hieraan.
Neuro-linguïstisch programmeren, beter bekend als NLP, is op Curaçao nog een onbekend fenomeen. Wereldwijd wordt deze methodiek omarmd om communicatie en gedrag te verbeteren. In NLP wordt gekeken naar de wijze waarop wij de wereld waarnemen, hoe wij hierop reageren, en de manier waarop wij dit vervolgens kunnen verbeteren. Bewustwording en wijziging van bepaalde gedragspatronen en effectieve communicatie zijn hierin belangrijke elementen.
