Let your dreams,

be your wings...

Hi, I'm Taşkın Köksalan

I was born in 1977 in Hamburg, Germany. I completed my primary education in Germany and moved to Turkey where I completed my secondary and university education at Ankara Çankaya Anadolu High School and Hacettepe University (Department of Linguistics), respectively. 

I was deeply impressed by Linguist Prof. John Grinder's research on language - thought - emotion - behavior interaction and performance modelling and NLP. This took me on a lifelong journey of discovery and development in NLP, communication and behavioral sciences.

My Vision

Truly speaking, NLP is still not well known in Turkey unfortunately (see my article: NLP in Turkey). As a NLP Trainer, my aim is to support the healthy and scientific development of NLP in Turkey. This will only be possible with well trained NLP practitioners. Therefore, I feel responsible for the training of new generation NLP practitioners with the highest NLP education standards acknowledged around the world.

With the NLP Academy Turkey Education and Research Institute work program, we want to reach as many people as possible. I want to create a modern information sharing and development platform where NLP professionals can come together and benefit from each other.

I often re-experience the value that NLP adds to human engineering, communication and behavioral sciences every day. I am very excited to imagine what NLP can offer and contribute to our community in the coming years. I would like to share this excitement with everyone.
