Clarity, Confidence, & Creativity: New Information on
Dealing with Stress, People, & Life
As the title suggests, this presentation goes way beyond "stress management." In fact, using his "Life from The Top of the Mind" system Dr. Crawford will show participants how to access their clarity, confidence, and creativity by assessing a specific part of the brain.
In addition, this presentation will show participants how to avoid the stress and frustration that gets in the way of good decision making by avoiding a specific part of the brain and how to engage others in such a way that they shift from their "resistant brain" to their "receptive brain" so that they can truly hear and understand what you are wanting them to know.

Leadership from the Top of the Mind: New Information on the Neuroscience of Problem-Solving, Communication, and Influence
The challenge for today's leaders is that their job requires them to not only deal with high-level problems with serious implications, they are also expected to be able to predict the future while consistently bringing out the best in others. This requires them to be a combination of visionary, effective problem-solver, and psychologist. In order to meet all of these demands, todays leaders must be able to access to their knowledge and interpersonal skills (and inspire others to do the same) regardless of the situation. Unfortunately, these expectations can also result in the type of pressure created a special brand of stress, frustration , and anxiety that engage the lower 20% of the brain. This is where Dr. Crawford's "Top of the Mind" system is extremely effective, because the abilities to plan for the future, deal with stress, com up with creative solution, and influence others all 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 interact with them in such a way that they shift from the lower, resistant brain to the upper, receptive brain so that they understand and act upon your directives.
