talks about getting in touch with the right brain really are engaging!
Since the topic can push lots of judgmental and logical left brain
buttons, I tell little jokes and gently nudge my audiences into firing
up those connectivity synapses. I see lots of head-nodding pretty
quickly, reinforcing my theory that humor resides in the right brain.
audiences range in size and I tailor my talks to the group. For
instance, the speech I gave to people who’d been recently laid off from
their jobs was different than the one to folks thinking about changing
careers. Transition was the key word to these groups, and it’s true
that tapping the right brain is particularly helpful in times of change.

is so enthusiastic about the benefits of “other” handwriting that she
got me curious enough to try it, even though I’m left-handed. My left

I’ll make the best decision and I’m using “other” handwriting to help
with many aspects of my life.
