梅本かずひこ:NLP熱血戦士

日本のNLPと言えばこの人物:梅本かずひこ
梅本氏との出会いは1997年、当時彼は箱根で行われたNLP資格講習の参加者及び幹事を務めていました。彼は即座にNLPの能力を取り入れ、その技術を多くの日本人生徒に紹介したのです。

梅本氏はチーム医療と共に15年間、私だけでなく数々の日本人の人生を変えてきました。彼の熱意と能力のお陰で私とジェイク・イーグルは何度も東京を訪れる事ができ、結果としてNLPを日本において広める事に成功しました。毎年、梅本氏はこの事業の成功の為に自分の時間を削り、しかも時には個人資金を提供し皆が集まり学べる場を作れるよう熱心に努力したのです。

梅本かずひこ氏は私の人生をこう変えた

梅本氏との出会いは私がまだ若いNLPトレーナーであったころでした。。当時は自分の力を発揮する事に必死でした。その機会を与えて下さったのが梅本氏でした。私達のNLPプログラムに彼が連れて来た生徒達からもっとも大事な事を教えてくれました。それは何かと言うと、彼らのNLPを学ぶすばらしい姿勢そして優れた学習能力でした。それに貢献出来たことは私にとって光栄です。お陰で日本では自分にとってもっとも貴重な教育経験を得る事ができました。

梅本氏のビジョン、周りの環境をより良くしていくための責任、そして彼の誠実さは正に完璧でした。様々な犠牲を補った梅本氏は何を願ったのでしょうか?彼は一度、学校のPTAでボランティア活動をして周りの子供達を助けたいと私に語りました。彼はNLPスキルを地元の学校に紹介する事によって子供達に明るい未来を与える事が出来ると思ったのです。彼のボランティア活動の話を聞いただけで、私は感動しました。これほど素晴らしい価値観をもった方と知り合えた事にとても感謝しております。

2012年の5月、何年にもわたる梅本さんとの関わりを振り返る中で、彼の存在がどれほど重要なのかを以前よりもしみじみと理解出来るようになりました。今まで何人もの人達が彼のお陰で救われました。それぞれの生徒が深い自己認識、誠実さ、優れたコミュニケーション能力を学ぶ事によって本人だけではなく、その子供達、さらに接する人々全ての人生を影響することが出来るのです。梅本氏の貢献は、長きに渡って日本の方々に影響する事でしょう。

梅本かずひこは日本をどう変えているのか

日本は素晴らしい国であり、梅本氏はそれを更に素晴らしくしようと努力し続けています。彼は日本文化において、変わったコミュニケーション技術を紹介しました。私達は生徒にとって安全且つオープンで心を開きやすい環境の中、NLP講習を提供しております。こういった環境は世界でも非常に稀です。多くの生徒はNLPの講習環境はもっとも安心できる場であり、周りの偏見を気にせずに自由に意見を交わす事が出来ると話しています。梅本さんなしではこのような場は存在しないのです。

生徒個人個人に話しかけるだけではなく、梅本さんはNLPのベストセラー本も過去に書いています。なんと素晴らしい事でしょう!この本は何千人もの読者の人生を変えたでしょうし、その影響は想像を絶するでしょう。

この数年間、数々のNLPトレーナーが日本を訪れました。新しいNLPの組織も出来てきました。しかし、残念ながら梅本氏のような誠実で自己成長に向けての強いメッセージを抱く人間は殆ど存在しません。NLPの名前を使った様々な新たな講習組織は梅本氏が必死につくり上げたNLPの看板に傷をつけているのです。

いずれにせよ、梅本氏はこれからも生徒や新たな正式NLPトレーナーを助ける事に貢献し続けます。

私の中では梅本かずひこ氏—チーム医療の 創設者は真のNLP戦士で、私達は彼の貢献に多くを負っていると思います。


Kazuhiko Umemoto: Dedicated NLP Warrior

When I think of NLP in Japan, one person comes to mind: Kazuhiko Umemoto.

I first met Kazu in 1997, as he was the gracious host and a participant in our residential NLP practitioner certification training that took place in beautiful Hakone, near Mount Fuji. Kazu took right to NLP, quickly learning the skills that would enable him to introduce NLP to hundreds of lucky Japanese students.

The trainings Kazu hosted with his company, Team Medicine, over the next 15 years literally changed the lives of scores of Japanese people, including mine. Because of his passion and business skill,  Jake Eagle and I were able to travel to Tokyo many times to make NLP available in Japan. Every year, Kazu worked tirelessly, sacrificing his time and in many cases personally financing the venture so that we could all come together to learn.

How Kazuhiko Umemoto changed my life

I was a young NLP trainer when I met Kazu and very motivated to work to make a difference. Kazu is the one that gave me that opportunity. The students Kazu brought to our NLP programs taught me the most valuable lesson of all. You see, these students demonstrated the highest level of dedication and humility in learning NLP and changing their lives for the better. I am blessed to have been a part of that. In fact, working in Japan has been the most meaningful teaching experience in my life.

Kazu’s vision, commitment to making his community a better place and his personal integrity were the perfect combination. What did Kazu wish to gain from his sacrifice? He once told me that his vision was to make his community a better place for children by volunteering for the local school PTA. He thought that by bringing his NLP skills to local schools, the children would be better off. I was delighted to hear that Kazu did just that, volunteering his time and insight to the PTA. I am honored to know a man with such personal values.

Now, in May of 2012, as I reflect back on our many years of involvement, I understand more than ever how important Kazu’s contribution has been. How many people have been blessed because of his efforts? It is hard to say. When an individual students learn deep self-awareness, become aligned with their inner integrity and practice such influential communication skills, it changes not only their lives, but the lives of their children and everyone they come into contact with. I expect Kazu’s contribution will affect generations of Japanese people.

How Kazuhiko Umemoto is changing Japan

Japan is a wonderful country and Kazu continues to work to make it even better. He introduced a different kind of communication skills to Japanese culture. Our NLP trainings are open, honest and compassionate environments for students to share the deepest parts of themselves. This kind of environment is rare anywhere in the world. Many students have said the NLP training environment is the safest place in their lives, a place where they can share their insights and learn without fear of being judged. Without Kazu, this place would not exist.

Beyond reaching individual students, Kazu went on to write the best selling NLP book in the history of Japan. Amazing! This book has touched the lives of thousands of readers. There is no way to estimate the impact!

Over the years many other NLP trainers have come to Japan. New NLP organizations have cropped up everywhere. Unfortunately, many of these organizations do not possess Kazu’s integrity and message of deep personal growth. It is sad to see so many training organizations that use NLP in manipulative ways and, essentially, harm the reputation of NLP in Japan that Kazu has worked so hard to establish. Regardless, Kazu remains committed to helping his students and the many new NLP trainers that we have personally certified.

In my mind, Kazuhiko Umemoto, founder of Team Medicine, is a true NLP Warrior. We all owe him our gratitude for the difference he has made.
