What Scott Halford Talks About:

Activate Your Brain: The Neuroscience of Success
Sell more. Produce more. Be more efficient. Keep your employees engaged. Innovate. Be happy. And you would love to have some time to just…think. You want it all, but how?

It all starts in the brain. Learn to identify what switches people on and what turns them off. What attracts and what repels.

Scott’s life-long study of human behavior is the foundation of Activate Your Brain. You will enjoy his uniquely interactive and entertaining style as you learn how neuroscience, emotional intelligence, and influence combine to provide innovative solutions to achieve business excellence. Participants take away tangible ideas about how to drive business strategies forward, with the brain in mind.

Emotional Intelligence: Success in Business and Beyond
Your business is competitive and knowledge-driven. To break out of the pack, you need to be more than just smart and technically savvy. You need the right values, appropriate behavior, and the ability to manage emotions. In short, successful people – you and your employees – need emotional intelligence (EI).

Most of us know emotionally intelligent behavior when we see it. But, is it important to business? Is it possible to learn it? The answers are yes and yes.

EI is essential in business and has been proven as a key differentiator. Emotional intelligence is not IQ – learn why you need both. In an engaging and interactive program, participants learn ways to apply and “grow” emotional intelligence every day, in every situation.
