Hypnosis for professional growth
When the general population thinks on hypnosis, stage shows and/or quitting smoking come to mind. While these are prevalent aspects of the hypnosis world, hypnosis for business has been gaining momentum. Movers and shakers in the business world are seeing the benefits to this inside out approach to business improvement.
Until recently, hypnosis in the corporate world has usually been limited to CEOs and business leaders. More and more top-level corporations are seeing the value of hypnosis as an offering to their employees.
CEOs have used hypnosis for years to contend with personal stress. Being a business leader does not preclude one from being human. Dealing with home/family stress frees up the leader to make more sound decisions regarding his/her business.
Leaders in business also utilize hypnotic techniques to maintain mental focus and acuity for projects and meetings. Hypnosis allows individuals to implement coping mechanisms with the ever-changing landscape of business.
Innovation is an area that scientists have taken advantage of for years. Businesses that want to remain on the cutting edge of performance employ hypnotists to help leaders, research and development personnel and other creators unbridled access to their subconscious mind. Being able to shut out outside noise while solving problems provides a nice place to postulate and problem solve. Our conscious mind generally has limited access to the brain’s potential as it makes up on 12% of mind. Consider opening the other 88% of your mind to address needs, product improvement, and problem solving.
With the changing dynamics of distance workers, online meetings, re-onboarding employees and the same types of virtual/online interactions with vendors and clients, hypnosis is an ideal tool. Hypnosis helps employees contend with the changes they are facing by creating more neural plasticity. Many clients are contending with trauma and stress from the pandemic. Many have gotten ill, lost loved ones and have contended with a shifting home dynamic as well. Corporations that provide hypnosis for their employees provide clients the assistance they need while also investing in business. A healthy employee is a happy employee. A happy employee is a productive employee.
There are a variety of areas of concern that hypnosis is ideal to address.
- Public Speaking is a key issue many in business confront. From early on we are conditioned to fear external scrutiny. Hypnosis can address this dynamic and change the perspective of the individual.
- Fear of Failure/Success are frequent impediments to success in the business world. Using hypnotherapy can shift perspectives and allow acceptance of success and failure.
- Anxiety is one of those issues that can be brought about by a variety of causes from childhood, current interactions, fear of losing one’s job and more. Hypnosis is a common tool to alleviate the anxious feelings and provide opportunities to move forward.
- Time Management happens to be one of the biggest obstacles in the corporate world. Procrastination on projects, punctuality for meetings, spending needless time on some activities and avoiding others all cause problems for not only the employee/executive doing them, but for everyone else in the chain as well.
- Office Interactions is another topic with which hypnosis can assist. Getting a group of people all on the same page and communicating smoothly is a tough task. Hypnosis is a way to build teamwork and allow everyone to wind up on the same page. Many winning sports teams use hypnotherapy for this very reason.
- Past Trauma influences every aspect of our lives. Hypnosis/hypnotherapy has been helping individuals for years gain coping skills to deal with their concerns.
- Change has been causing a lot of imbalances in our lives over the past few years. Normal change can affect employees from change in location, role, and responsibility. On top of that, business has been faced with adapting to the pandemic dynamic of working from home, online meetings and sales, re-onboarding and more. Hypnosis is a proactive tool that will help with the constant of change.
- Neuroplasticity is the mental ability to make change and accept it. The process is enhanced by using hypnosis. The neuroplasticity allows creativity, problem solving and innovation. Great thinkers like Einstein and Tesla used hypnotic processes to build on and engage their neuroplasticity.
- Procrastination/Motivation issues can keep great employees perceived as just good. Finding motivation and avoiding putting work off is a tough habit to break. Hypnosis can help determine origin and shift perspective. If you can’t get out of it, get into it.
- Innovation and Creativity in the workplace is important. From the CEO down to the mailroom clerk, finding better, more efficient ways to perform is paramount. While in the hypnotic state individuals have access to more of their creative mind. They can see and dissect problems. New ideas flow more easily. By shutting out the mundane outside “noise” innovation and creativity can flourish.
There are many other subtle and nuanced applications for business hypnosis as well. Hypnosis may be provided in a group setting to address general concerns but is also extremely powerful in one-on-one settings to address very specific concerns.
High performing CEOs and business owners have been using hypnosis for years. It is an open secret held by many and the key to much success.
