The Hypnosis Management Center provides corporate seminars for employees that are in a high stress work environment.  The program defines stress, delineates the psychological and physiological disturbances caused or exacerbated by psychosocial stress, helps identify a group’s personal stressors, explains stress and why some stress is good.  The seminar also identifies the most common stressors, practices group interaction, tension/relaxation techniques and concludes with a Q&A session.

Hypnocounseling for weight loss and smoking cessation are desired on a one on one basis.

The Hypnosis Management Center works toward exceeding corporate expectations in the “burnout” workshops.  Here are the ten hopes and expectations most often listed by executives for this seminar:

  • To have a significant impact on my organization.
  • To be able to express myself and do my own thing.
  • To have the resources needed to do the work well.
  • To be “number one”; to be a success.
  • To make my organization the best that it can be.
  • To prove myself to myself and to my organization.
  • To be appreciated and recognized.
  • To have power and status.
  • To do something significant.
  • To be adequately rewarded.

In order to overcome any major obstacle in the workplace you must use the proper troubleshooting skills.  Identifying and resolving a problem is not always easy when you have different personalities and ideas involved.  Identifying the blocks to problem solving can help you get closer to a resolution.

Here are some blocks to problem solving…

  • Difficulty in isolating the problem.
  • Tendency to limit the problem area too closely.
  • Inability to see the problem from various points of view.
  • Stereotyping.
  • Saturation.
  • Failure to utilize all sensory input.
  • Eagerness to succeed too quickly.
  • Judging ideas rather than generating them.
  • Lack of motivation.
  • The need to feel that one is right.

Once these problem solving blocks are eliminated, a group or team can focus on brainstorming to come up with a resolution to the problem.  Sometimes, solving problems is achieved by breaking the problem down into a group of smaller problems, and tackling them one at a time.  Here are some guidelines for brainstorming that may aide in resolving a problem.

  • The group (or person) agrees to suspend all judgment.  No idea is wrong, silly, dumb, impractical or impossible.  Any criticizing will come later, not now.
  • Whether it’s an individual or group session, everyone involved knows clearly what the problem is that needs solving.
  • Decide how long the session will last or else the session will ramble on and become boring, if not incoherent.  The ideal time is 20 to 30 minute increments.
  • Wildness is welcome, the more off the wall, the better.
  • Go for quantity. In brainstorming, more is better.
  • Build upon others’ (or, if it’s just one person, the preceding) ideas and suggestions.
  • Rule nothing out; everybody’s contributions are of worth.
  • Write the ideas on a chart pack or a blackboard so that everyone can see them all at the same time.  In a group, a leader is needed who will maintain the ground rules and see that all ideas are recorded and that the session ends on time.
