SEPTEMBER MEMBER MEETING: STEVE HAFFNER, SPEAKER & MENTALIST: CONFRONTING THE LIZARD
Steve Haffner began his career as a nerd. In 1984, with a Computer Science degree in hand, he embarked on a 30 year career as a systems engineer, software developer and systems analyst. In other words - a nerd! He grew into the position of Business Analyst for a Fortune 500 insurance company and became Vice-President of Performance Measurement Systems for a healthcare information corporation. ?In 2011, Steve decided to forge a new path and start his own business as a corporate entertainer and speaker. His entertainment featured "mentalism," in which he captivates audiences with psychological illusions. Through his mentalism study and training, Steve discovered how the subconscious mind affects human behavior without our awareness. Knowing what an audience member's mind is doing that they don't even know is a great advantage for a mentalist! So Steve began studying the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral science. He learned that while we think our decisions are governed mostly by logic and reason, often they are not. The subconscious impulses, instincts, and biases of our primitive reptilian brain often cause us to make poor decisions and errors in judgment. Steve became fascinated with this hidden world within our own minds and learned that most of us can improve our decisions, relationships, and lives by understanding these influences. Today he shares his insights on elevating decision performance to organizations through keynotes, seminars and workshops. Maintaining a business or department requires great decision performance and integrity. You need to be sure your decisions and activities are moving you toward achieving your goals while also reflecting your values.? Steve Haffner's programs give audiences insight into how decisions can be subverted by subconscious impulses and what you can do to recognize these influences and keep your business on track with your goals, your vision and your brand.
