Today we have available to us a range of different technologies which can help us change ourselves as individuals and, therefore, help us change our organisations for the better. Many of these technologies have grown out of research carried out in psychology and related disciplines.

Technology is generally thought of in terms of machines, equipment and other material aspects. However, technology can equally refer to how we do "invisible" things. The way in which someone thinks is a technology. For instance, skills for mental arithmetic are a technology.

Science itself could be said to be a technology. It is a set of mental and social procedures that can lead to certain discoveries. Without those procedures, the discoveries would be less likely.

Mental process and social process are, in many ways, like software that we use in computers. Though not really physical, it is still technology.

Psychological technologies involve working with individuals on a number of levels. For instance, we can work on the level of thinking strategies. Some individuals are more effective than others in certain areas of work simply because they use their heads in different ways. By understanding and mimicing the ways of thinking and processing information that are used by people who are very effective at what they do, through a process called modelling, anybody can learn to greatly enhance their own performance.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and accelerated learning both provide very powerful approaches to help people learn new information quickly, and to improve upon the habitual but less than efficient ways in which people have learned to process information.
