Talks & Workshops

A Neurobiologists’s Guide to Mind Manipulation (conference talk)

I’ve given this talk 13+ times, all over the world. It’s the most important and impactful thing I’ve ever done.

A useful-psychology double-whammy: (A) Developers are great systems thinkers. Surprise: your brain is a system too! Reframe frustration into accomplishment, and become a more effective and bubbly person using a frontal cortex feedback loop. (B) Want your team to be the happiest, most productive team around? Recent psychology research reveals one key attribute of the most successful teams, and it's within your influence.

Developer Psychology

Want your team to be the happiest, most productive team around? Your team would love to see my talk “A Developer’s Guide to Mind Manipulation”. I’d love to travel to your company and share these modern psychology techniques with your team. So many attendees have told me it was immensely impactful, and the techniques stayed with them even much after the talk.

The “Neurobiologist’s Guide to Mind Manipulation” talk can be done as a Lunch & Learn. I’ll do a 25 minute presentation, followed by 25 minutes of open questions and/or facilitated discussion time. Each workshop costs $750 (for the DC area).
