This program is based on Mark's latest research, which is now a cornerstone of Loyola Marymount University's Executive MBA program. The keynote lecture introduces the 12 strategies of Compassionate Communication and includes experiential exercises that enhance speaking and listening skills. A complementary workshop guides the audience through a formal training exercise that teaches individuals how to quickly build social empathy, mutual trust, and cooperation with others – in the workplace and at home. Compassionate Communication is fully described and documented in Waldman’s and Newberg’s book, Words Can Change Your Brain, and in the 2012 issue of the Journal of Executive Education. The lecture is 60-90 minutes long, and the workshop can be tailored to fit a 2-3 hour slot

Our neuroscientific research shows that we are wired from birth to make as much “money” as we possibly can. However, if we act selfishly, other people will neurologically react with altruistic punishment. In this lecture and workshop, Mark will guide participants through a series of steps that enhance a person’s ability to achieve the goals they desire. This includes the use of a Daily Commitment Sheet to help one recognize sabotage behaviors, the creation of a C.R.A.P. Board that allows a person to identify and disassociate from emotional problems that interfere with success, and a “Wellness” strategy that improves self-esteem in just a couple of weeks. The audience will also be taught peak performance strategies now used by the Harvard Business School and the Executive MBA program at Loyola Marymount University. These strategies have also been proven to improve teamwork collaboration and organizational stability. The lecture is 60 minutes; the optional workshop lasts 2-3 hours, or for an entire day.

In conjunction with leading researchers at universities around the country, Mark has designed a highly effective strategy for losing weight and undermining various eating disorders. You’ll learn how to train your brain to stay committed to a healthy diet and eating program, and you’ll learn how to lose weight safely, mindfully, and permanently. Using three university-tested programs and cutting-edge research on the neuroscience of weight-loss, you will interrupt destructive eating behaviors, learn how to cope with cravings, eliminate guilt, feel satisfied eating less, reduce anxiety and stress, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and lower your risk to diabetes and other health problems. This is the first weight-loss program to integrate the newest findings in brain research, and Waldman, Newberg, and Kristeller have conducted the first brain scan study to show how mindful eating gives a person more control over ones behaviors. Mindful eating changes your relationship to food as you simultaneously reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. Self esteem improves, and you literally train your brain to stay committed to your personalized weight loss and weight management program. The lecture is 90 minutes. If a Mindful Eating meal is included, add 45-60 minutes. The program can be expanded into a ½ or full-day workshop.

It’s not an organ, like the heart. It’s a community of a 160 billion independent and creative living organisms, constantly changing and creatively communicating with each other. Mark presents video footage of neurons interacting with each other in ways that create our emotional and conscious realities. The program includes visual and auditory illusions that help participants understand that the world we imagine is very different from the reality that actually exists “out there.” The program explains what neuroplasticity is and how we can use this ability to change our lives in dramatic ways. The presentation is 45-90 minutes long.

Mark and his team of university researchers have developed a series of experiential exercises and strategies that have been proven to enhance neural performance in ways that increase attentiveness, concentration, empathy, optimism, and work-related productivity. This program explains what motivates people to take action, and what interferes with the brain’s ability to achieve one’s goals and dreams. Participants learn how to identify sabotage behaviors and create counter-strategies that lower stress and build self esteem. The lecture is 60-90 minutes long, and the workshop can be tailored to fit a 2-3 hour slot.

By simply spending a few minutes several times a day, a person can permanently alter the functioning of the brain by as much as 25%. The result: Greater work productivity with less stress, decreased anxiety and depression, and enhanced memory, cognition, and empathy. The keynote speech includes animated videos of the human brain, interactive slides of Newberg and Waldman’s brainscan studies, and demonstrations of simple techniques that the audience can experience – exercises that have been documented to improve neural functioning, generate personal happiness, and improve social interactions in the workplace and at home. The workshop guides participants through various relaxation and stress-reduction exercises and different styles of mindfulness-based meditations. Participants can sample ancient spiritual practices from Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, Sufism, and Islam and will be shown how they can be used in nonreligious capacities. The lecture is 60-90 minutes long, and the workshop can be tailored to fit a 2-3 hour slot.
