Dr. Haller's Seminar Topics

Happiness is a Work Ethic: Train Your Brain
Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we'll be happy. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. The program design for this one-day presentation encompasses the work on "Emotional Intelligence" - the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions effectively in self and in others. The workshop intertwines experiential learning throughout the day, and activities are used to illustrate key training components on such topics as dealing with change, minimizing sources of conflict, improving attention and focus, and becoming a more effective communicator.

Looking Through Rose Colored Glasses with Both Eyes Open
This provocative workshop will help dentists and their team identify their present level of optimism and pessimism so they can gain more personal control over their lives. The way we think about what happens to us causes consequences that lead to success, or defeat. More than the "power of positive thinking" - learned optimism is changing belief systems, not just in your words but in your heart.

Achieving a Winning Mindset
Whether on the playing field or in the operatory, mental control is a deciding factor. Surviving the emotional challenges of team and patient interaction and the fast paced environment of the everyday dental office requires creativity, imagination and mental toughness. Indeed, the toughest course is the six inches between our ears. This fun-filled, interactive presentation encompasses Dr. Haller's work with dentists and their teams. The focus is on developing a mental edge to maximize the likelihood for success. Participants will learn the common characteristics of optimal experience - that state when you feel strong, concentrated, motivated.

You Said What? Mastering Communication
When communicating, we don't always say what we mean. In the interest of getting along with others, important things are not said. Unfortunately, this often ends up causing conflict. To be successful at work and in your personal life, communication skills are essential. In this workshop, you'll identify your own communication style and learn about the barriers to effective communication.

Team Bonding & Building
Learn the skills that can turn conflict into cooperation and take your practice to a higher level of performance. Discover how your co-workers think, what they fear, and why they act as they do. This is a fun, interactive, and humorous program that will provide practical, ready-to-use techniques with the people in your office.
