Next NSENG Meeting is Mon Sept 30th
6:15-8:30pm, Glenview Library (1930 Glenview Rd)
"How to Train Your Brain to Perform Better During Job Interviews"  
Some of the most important skills in performing well during job interviews and networking situations are  your ability to focus clearly, think fast on your feet and be able to make better decisions with less stress. Much of that depends on your brain's mental agility and the ability to quickly adapt to different situations. During this meeting executive brain coach,  JOHN KENNEDY, will present on  "How to train your brain to perform better during job interviews". He will take everyone through some brain training exercises where you may notice a positive difference before you leave this event. Most importantly, you can use what you've learned in this meeting just prior to any job interviews or networking encounters you have so that you perform level with more responsiveness and focus.

Some of the topics that John will address include:
  • Learn about the ability of your brain to change based on stimulation
  • Understand how you can assess situations and adapt your behavior for greater success during interviews
  • How to break bad interviewing and networking habits and create new ones
  • Go through an exercise that will physically change your brain to be faster and more focused
  • Learn how to apply the exercises before interviews and networking events

Here is some background on  John Kennedy :
John is a pioneer in the field of Targeted Neuroplasticity Training. He was contracted by the US Marines in 2007 to develop the Combat Brain Training™ program to reduce casualties in combat and improve Warfighting capabilities by accelerating mental processing and improving focus. Overwhelmingly successful, John's programs quickly spread to other individuals including: US Special Operations Command, Snipers, pilots, athletes and students of all ages, business people, those suffering from brain trauma... and JOB SEEKERS. He has even trained inner-city high school kids on his techniques and 100% of them reported significant improvements in just a few hours. Additionally, brain John's training has since been adopted by many executives, salespeople, technical experts, attorneys, traders and financial advisors.
