AH!2016 Speaker Profile: Steve Linder


We are honored and thrilled to have Steve Linder, one of the world’s top Neuro Linguistics Programming (NLP) experts speaking at Activating Happy this November. (Despite the daunting name, NLP is one of the most effective ways to bring happiness and success into your life.)

NLP is based on scientifically proven, easy techniques that enable us to dramatically improve how we think, behave, communicate and feel resulting in success.

Steve will share strategies that will guide you to understand how to recode your brain to reach your potential. And you will never again think the same way about “having a problem.” As a side benefit, you will be wildly entertained in the process.

At the age of 18, Steve was fired from Sizzler because of his “lack of potential” and continued making “a bunch of dumb decisions” for several years that found him unemployed, sleeping on the floor of his one room apartment, and on the verge of bankruptcy.

After finding quality mentors, and coming to a realization about the power of personal choice, Steve quickly developed a plan for his life.

He has learned that having a healthy identity, knowing your strengths and asking better questions is at the core of success. (I assure you the application in your own life will become clear when you hear Steve speak at AH!.)

Steve has been a senior officer in major Wall Street firms and a successful entrepreneur, selling his company to E*Trade for $14 million. He left Wall Street to teach Neuro-Strategies to individuals and businesses around the world.

Through his ups and downs, he realized human psychology was at the core of success or failure. Steve has dedicated his life to exploring how the brain works as a means to understand “why we do what we do” and how to rewire habits that do not serve us well.

As Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."

To your success!
