my team and I were incredibly impressed with the message and delivery by Hal Runkle. He was concise, entertaining and incredibly beneficial to our family engagement event. The concept that parents can take ownership back of parenting while maintaining a productive and loving relationship with their children in the quest to build outstanding adults, was both well-received and empowering. He was funny, articulate, and incredibly down to earth

Five Truths Every Parent Needs to Know
Every parent wants a more peaceful home. And a little respect & appreciation wouldn’t hurt, either. We also crave something deeper: We want to feel confident we’re doing a good job and feel capable to handle any parenting challenge. All of that is possible, even probable, when a parent decides to become ScreamFree. Moving beyond child-centered, technique-based approaches, the ScreamFree mindset compels us to focus on controlling ourselves, instead of our kids. By staying both calm and connected with our kids, we begin to operate less out of our deepest fears (which always backfires) and more out of our highest principles. With his laugh-out-loud, self-deprecating style Hal has delivered this, his landmark program based on his NYT Bestseller, to thousands throughout the US and around the world.
The 7 Deadly Sins of the 21st Century
Immediacy. Consumerism. Multimediocrity. Sitting. These are but a few of the modern maladies of the human spirit. In the name of more speed, more stuff, and more comfort, we are killing ourselves to be happy. In this revolutionary look at contemporary life, Hal leads us to “confession,” helping us all to repent of our craziness and return to our deepest desires for peace, connection, and sustainability.
The Lifelong Marriage Mindset
Six Keys to Creating a Romance that Lasts
Building a lifelong romance is a universal dream, but the realities of marriage can make that dream so difficult to come true. What we need is a radical new Lifelong Marriage Mindset, focused on uncovering the common lies about marriage, and replacing those with the truths that simply make more sense. Combining timeless principles, the foremost clinical research, and a LOL-speaking style, Hal presents a vision for intimate relationships unlike most everything you’ve ever heard. Based on his remarkable book, ScreamFree Marriage, this Mindset is not built on “fighting fair,” or “meeting one another’s needs,” or “becoming more compatible.” None of these can truly help you grow as a person or improve your marriage. A Lifelong Marriage begins with focusing on individual self-respect, championing your own personal growth as the key to intimacy. That way, your marriage can actually be a celebration of the differences between you and your spouse, building a foundation for a romance that lasts.

I brought in Hal to talk with my employees and his smart, engaging style blew them away. Theywere challenged to redefine the way they think about their relationships in the office and at home.
MDA's greatest corporate asset is our employees. When I learned about Hal and ScreamFree and studied the program, I knew this seminar would be helpful to my employees in helping them to communicate better. I strongly recommend it to businessleaders as healthy employees make for a healthier company.
"I've heard all the great speakers--Brian Tracy, Steven Covey, Zig Ziglar, Earl Nightingale--when it comes to relationships, whether it's in families or in business--or in any organization--Hal Runkel is the best I've heard. And what is everything in life about if not relationships?"
I had seen Hal speak previously and had the pleasure of reading ScreamFree Parenting and applying the principles in my own home. After seeing the newfound calm and happiness it created, I knew I had to bring Hal in to speak at the school. The ScreamFree message applies to every parent in every situation. It teaches us that we always have a choice - stay calm or "freak out" - and staying calm always creates the better outcome
The ScreamFree message, stressing calm, principle-based relationships, was a big hit with the entire Chick-fil-A family. When relationships at home are good, so goes the business.
Hal Runkel and the ScreamFree Team are a class act! Hal not only brought in one of our largest crowds ever, he connected with everybody in the room. Hal's material is life changing, and his authenticity and versatility as a speaker really set him apart.
The long days & long travel in this industry can lead to family issues. ScreamFree brought a newfound understanding that has led to higher productivity and happier employees.
