Brian Haggerty is a renaissance man. When you first hear his resonant, hypnotic and unmistakable voice, you are immediately drawn in to one of the most inspiring and fastest rising speakers in America.
Brian’s areas of expertise are vast and deep. He is the master of communication and the expert among the experts in the field of social and people skills. In addition to his multiple talks and courses on business etiquette, leadership and superior communication, Brian is also a futurist and lover of science. Brian is always looking to the future; studying the latest social and business trends and how technology is evolving and drastically changing so many aspects to how people communicate, interact and do business in the 21st century.
In addition to Brian's communications, language and social skills programs, below are some of his new, cutting-edge talks which incorporate the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology as they apply toward our understanding of human potential and improvement.
One of the fastest growing platforms among companies today is the development of Emotional Intelligence, or, as it is abbreviated, EI. EI refers to the ability to recognize one's or other's emotions, discern between different types of "feelings" and being able to use emotional information to guide behavior, decision making, adapt to environments and, otherwise, achieve a group or one's goals. EI uses self-awareness to identify and remove destructive emotions which arise from improper thinking. Emotions result from thoughts. When we elevate our awareness, we can easily see which thoughts are hindering or hurting us. Doing so allows us to consciously choose different thought patterns and, therefore better outcomes.
Evolution has given us a second brain called Intuition. Long considered a new-age, spiritual topic, Brian dispels the realities and misconceptions of Intuition while explaining how we can learn to embrace, learn from and listen to this inner voice which usually knows the right person, place, path or thing with which we should proceed or pursue. Usually in contrast with our brain, our intuition, once understood in biological terms, in just another part of our brain. However, knowing when our Intuition is speaking or, in some cases, screaming, to us, can be developed into a skill which can assist us in making and taking the proper and necessary steps and decisions for our most pressing personal and professional choices.
Whether we know it or not; whether we believe it or not, these pesky little things known as belief systems run our lives in pretty much the same way as any computer software. They are the little voices in our head which seem to ramble on and on all day. Everything we have ever seen, heard, experienced; everything ever told to us, said to us or done by us has formed our current beliefs as to how the world works. Because we developed them, it is we who can change and edit them. While this process can take quite a while, it is part of the overall changes needed to take control of our personal and professional lives. Once we fully understand that we are all merely the product of everything we have ever believed, the process of mindfulness, meditation and proactive mind management can help us to reprogram our beliefs as if we were reprogramming computer software.
Another practice long ignored by Western culture is Mindfulness; also known as Meditation. Long considered new-age and religious in nature, meditation has recently taken on a whole new appearance in business. In this talk, Brian explains the science behind what meditation does and dispels any inaccurate or believed misconceptions behind this powerful life practice which improves personal and professional performance and fulfillment. Mindfulness is absolutely necessary in order to develop Emotional Intelligence (EI). It allows us to become self-aware of our thoughts. Doing so allows one to recognize negative thought patterns which trigger fearful or anxiety-causing experiences and to focus conscious attention on the creation and adaption of new, positive ideas. In short, this practice allows you to dig out the weeds in order to plant new, blossoming, beautiful flowers..
