Are you having "people problems"?

Are you having “people problems”?

Are your “people problems” costing you or your business time, money, happiness, or health?

What if you understood what’s going on when things “go wrong” …

and what you can do about it
that actually works?

The truth is, we really haven’t had any idea what makes people tick,
what creates or restores understanding or positive connection, or what’s going on
when people say and do things that seem a little crazy to us.

Until now.

Thanks to key advances in our understanding about the brain, our nervous system, stress, and how all these affect human perception, behavior, and relationships, we now have genuinely effective answers to these questions.

This seminar has been celebrated by veteran therapists, PhD Psychologists, CNVC Certified Trainers, business consultants, couples and singles, people dealing with anxiety or depression or reactivity, professionals struggling to fulfill their potential, and many others, as one of the most powerful and helpful they’ve ever seen to

  • Why We So Often Don't Agree with Others about "What Happened," and what you can do to resolve that
  • What Creates "Crazy" Behavior in us and others (because we ALL do it), why compassion is such an essential response, and how to minimize how often it happens and the damage it causes
  • The 6 Different Brain States that we humans have, and what you can reasonably expect from yourself or others, when in each one of them (one of the most powerful tools you will ever use; perfect to take home to your kids, too!)
  • Why People Break Agreements without even seeming to care about the impact on us, and how you can prevent this

  • The 3 Key Skills Required to Navigate Positive Connection with anyone
  • A 4-Step Guide to Effective Communication and Thriving Relationships that consistency creates genuine understanding, respect, peace, and thriving ... and often makes our dearest connecting dreams come true.
