Alexander is a Certified Master Practitioner in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) who specializes in behavioral modeling.
Van Buren’s years of experience at starting and running successful businesses, his NLP coaching process, and the many patterns & strategies he’s modeled, make him a veritable goldmine of resources for aspiring entrepreneurs.
His client list developed over the years from small business owners to larger companies including Toshiba, the 17th largest company in the world, Paramount Home Entertainment, a billion-dollar-a-year division of Viacom and Arrow Electronics, a twenty-billion-dollar-a-year firm based out of Denver.
After spending 2 years learning how to model something, Alexander conducted his first behavioral modeling project in 1997. Determined to elicit the structure of creativity in detail, he read Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks every single day for two years while eliciting Walt Disney’s actual creative process and studying Peter Drucker’s concepts on innovation.
The project loosed a flood of creative ideas. He has conducted formal ongoing behavioral modeling projects ever since. Over the next several years he elicited and created over 200 original patterns of excellence and models.
He’s modeled the comeback strategy of tennis legend Andre Agassi, the delegation techniques of a senior executive at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the visionary syntax Tom Watson used to create IBM, the mental game secrets of bodybuilding champion Tom Platz, and the memory methods of a world-class violinist.
In 2002 he was hired by the Bluegreen Land & Golf Corporation to behaviorally model their top salespeople and referral-getters. Some of their sales elite went on to earn over a million dollars a year in commission.
Alexander has been a featured presenter for the Stanford Executive Program Graduate School of Business at Stanford University.
