New Information on The Science of Dealing With Stress, People, & Life!
Everyone has heard the statistics…75% of people today describe their lives as “very stressful,” and given the pace of globalization, chances are that it’s only going to get worse. Going way beyond “stress management,” Dr. Crawford first demonstrates why so much of the advice about how to deal with these problems will never work. Then, using common language and common sense, he gives his audiences a step- by-step system for changing the chemical make-up of our body and accessing the clear, confident, creative part of the brain so that we can deal with stress, people, and life more successfully, even in the most difficult situations.
Getting Others to Get It!
New Information on The Science of Influence and Communication
Ever tried to communicate important information to someone, only to have them become defensive, or argumentative? This can be a big problem, because often the conversation turns into a debate, with them defending the very behavior you want them to change! In “Getting Others to Get It,” Dr. Crawford goes way beyond “good communication skills” by showing participants what is really happening when others are being resistant, and why trying to explain things to them rationally doesn’t work! Then, he will show you how to engage people so that they shift from the resistant brain to the receptive brain so that they can hear and understand what you are wanting them to know.
Leadership From the “Top of the Mind”
The challenge for leaders is that they are required to deal with high-level problems with serious implications while predicting the future, and consistently bringing out the best in others. This requires them to be a combination of visionary, effective problem-solver, and psychologist. This is where the “Top of the Mind” system is extremely effective, because these abilities reside in the upper 80% of the brain. Plus, in order to bring out the best in people (as well as convince others to support your ideas) one must be able to get them to shift from the resistant brain to the receptive brain so that they understand and act upon your directives. Or, as one participant put it, “Finally, someone has delivered new tools & a new perspective based not just on soft skills, but hard science that we can use immediately!”
