I listened intently as the doctor told me I had Meniere’s disease, non-dizzy type, severe loss category. I was immediately fitted with hearing aids and exposed to a world of warped sounds and multiple requests for people to repeat what they were saying…”

Hypnosis is more than you think

  Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on January 20th, 2010    No Comments

Hypnosis isn’t about getting people to do crazy things, it’s about getting people over their own stumbling blocks so they can achieve their personal best.  Teacher and hypnosis coach, David Grinstead says,”I’m an educator, and I teach (people) a skill that they can use the rest of their life.”

Grinstead’s hypnosis helps people with sales skills (including selling yourself), career goals, motivation, confidence, public speaking, weight control, and smoking, among many others.  See the full list of services on David’s website.

Grinstead joined The Leadership Trust® as an adjunct faculty member in September 2009.  He sees clients in Burlington and Durham.  Of his joining the TLT team, Doc Holly says, “We’re excited to offer David’s hypnosis services as part of our expanding programs.  We aim to help people in not only leadership, but in their daily lives as well.  Hypnosis fits naturally into our expansion plans.”

US Job Satisfaction at Record Low

  Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on January 6th, 2010    No Comments

In the recent survey by the Conference Board research group, it was found that 45% of Americans are unsatisfied with their jobs.  This survey shows a drop of 4% since the previous results in 2008.  Read the full story here.

The Conference Board suggests that potential reasons for the dissatisfaction are:

  • Fewer workers consider their jobs to be interesting.
  • Incomes have not kept up with inflation.
  • The soaring cost of health insurance has eaten into workers’ take-home pay.

Doc Holly says, “Downsizing and restructuring have been prolific corporate events long before the economy went south, and the resulting stress of fewer people doing more seems to be at the crux of this mounting workforce disengagement, a major threaten to the necessary team play that underscores which company cultures can best manage competition in the marketplace. The Leadership Trust® has noticed more recently the surge in requests for leadership/emotional intelligence training to address morale issues related to people reacting in fear toward a stressed and/or intimidating manager.”
