I'm really excited about being on the show. I love your podcast.

Gresham Harkless 0:39

Yeah, I appreciate that. And I love having you on I think this is gonna be an awesome episode. And what I want to do is just read a little bit more about Art, so you can hear about all the awesome things that he's doing. Art Giser is the creator of Energetic NLP, he is an internationally renowned NLP trainer, intuitive, and healer. Art's unique and diverse background includes NLP spirituality, coaching, transformative and healing energy work, and intuition development.

[restrict paid=”true”]

Art Giser 1:15

I am.

Gresham Harkless 1:16

Awesome. Let's do it. So the first question I had was to hear a little bit more about what I call your CEO story. And what led you to start your business?

Art Giser 1:23

Well, I'm very independent. I wasn't entrepreneurially oriented, I was always looking for a job and a woman who would have been my first girlfriend in college and she said, aren't you looking for the box to fit yourself into? And you're kind of an unusual person that you're going to have to build that box. I knew what she was saying was true. And, then I was managing this research lab and one of the top health science institutions in the world and San Francisco and it was a good job. And I knew I didn't belong there. And I couldn't find what I wanted. And then I actually was walking by a bulletin board.

And there was a flyer that said neuro-linguistic programming, and I read the words and literally, it felt like a bolt of lightning, like right down, like through my head and down my midline. And I'm in the scientist in me went, what was that news stick and he was going, what was his sign? Things took off from there. But I'd like to say to some of your listeners, even though I've had my own business since 1985, I think it's only in the last few years, I've taken myself seriously as the CEO of my business. And I think like a lot of people, I was just doing the work I wanted to do and doing what I thought I needed to do to make that happen. But I wasn't putting on my CEO cap and going with my vision, how do I create a business? What help do I need? So I'm a reformed, non-CEO?

Gresham Harkless 2:47

Well, no, that's awesome. It doesn't matter which way you find it, you find it one way or another. And it's great to kind of hear like your it just reminded me of a Harry Potter-type story where you had the vendor when you found out exactly what NLP was and exactly how it connected. So I wanted to drill down a little bit deeper. And I've heard of NLP. And I know we talked a little bit more about it offline. Could you tell us about NLP, and also what Energetic NLP is, and how you serve your clients?

Art Giser 3:11

Well, in traditional psychology, they used to say, five years was a minimum amount of therapy to make deep changes. There's an old Woody Allen movie where he's talking to his girlfriend, and he goes, I've only been in therapy 12 years. And the people who started NLP were new have five or six therapists who got magical results with people and then what are they doing differently?

And so they started videotaping them, which in those days meant you had this huge fishing and ended up in using a lot of processes to uncover what these people didn't even consciously know they were doing, what were the unconscious things they believed and how they acted. And that was the beginning of NLP. And NLP is really the study of your internal reality, how you make up the meanings about the world, and how you think the world works.

And I think most people nowadays realize that there's very little about our lives, it's controlled by external factors, our internal reaction to things makes all the difference in the world, you have people that are incredible successes, who had everything against them, and you have people with everything going for them who can't get their act together. And it's all about our internal reality.

And also, though, they realize you could use it to acquire new skills, like what is the way that a leader thinks about how they observe people. How do they work with people? How do they think in terms of strategy, you know, or how do they ski? I mean, it can be anything. So NLP is really the study of how you transfer skills from one person to another. And also how do you take apart the kind of programming that we have that keeps us in a box?

Gresham Harkless 4:40

Interesting. Yeah. And I know that I'm especially I've read a ton of information, and you start to realize, like, you can't control certain things, but we have more control over like you said, the world than we sometimes give us credit for. And a lot of times that begins, with what's in our mind, and what we're saying to ourselves, and a lot of those things start to manifest yourself so that is kind of like what NLP helps people out with as far as like discovering, like, what maybe you have underneath the surface, so to speak, and how to kind of deal with that

Art Giser 5:09

We're very much how to deal with it. But also what are the secrets going on in people's brains? Why are some people really successful in certain areas? Because very often, they're not any smarter or even harder working than somebody who's not successful, but their inner reality is different and how they process the world and all the little connections and that's all very changeable. It turns out, so pretty much what we've been saying in NLP is that anything that anybody can do well, you can do well.

So, if you could put Michael Jordan's brain in my body, I'd be a hell of a short basketball player. I don't have his muscle fibers and all of that, and I'd be phenomenally better than I am, instead of going, Oh, I'm too short for basketball. So we're going to what's going on inside people's heads that either leads to failure or success or mediocrity and success? And then how do you change? How do you release the old programming? And also, how do you adopt these different kinds of thinking skills in emotional skills?

And then in Energetic NLP, we add in spiritual principles and work with the human energy system, where people often talk about chakras and auras. And if so, many people immediately go, oh, that's woo-woo, there are so many Nobel Prize-winning scientists who believe in it, it's amazing. You know, these are not stupid, woo-woo people. And so I want to introduce to people there's this whole other dimension to life, that can be a real secret to success. And in fact, in places like Silicon Valley, a lot of very high-level CEOs and high-level people are using energetic principles and spiritual principles, they typically don't talk about it, because it can be bad for stock prices because they don't want to sound weird. They're using it and they know it's not weird. No, just because something's 1000s of years old, doesn't mean it's stupid, necessarily.

Gresham Harkless 6:57

No, I would definitely agree with that. And because I'm a really big believer, and, vibrations and all of those things, and how, sometimes you can direct your way by directing your thinking, directing your environment, and things like that. So I'm one of those woo-woo people, I guess, too, if that's a bad thing, then I'm okay with that. Because there's a lot of successful people that are quote, unquote, woo people to that, that are doing a lot of amazing things.

Art Giser 7:20

Well, just because, we're doesn't mean, we can't be logical about it. And, we have to believe everything that we hear, there's quite a bit of scientific research, it's now backing up these kinds of principles that we live in. And a lot of people go, Well, I don't believe in invisible energy. So I'll go. So how do you deal with gravity getting a sunburn? Our lives, you and I are talking through invisible energies, it's like, that's no longer science fiction, that's science. And it's how we use this energy environment in and around us to bring out the best in ourselves and, and other people, because when people start using energy principles, with their team, everything improves, and everything gets better.

My corporate clients often, work with a team of people that aren't getting along, and I do things from NLP and a lot of other very more practical kinds of things, you might say, but then I'll be working with their energy, and they'll go like, she was thought this was gonna be hard, or everybody's getting along at the end of the day, and they don't understand that how that happened. It's something that's very, very spiritual and, very practical in the way that I teach it.

Gresham Harkless 8:28

So yeah, and I think that's what we talked about, too, is how there is a good kind of balance between the two, because, as a business person, you want to know, how am I going to move the needle, so to speak, but to be able to do that, and into balance that along with, you know, the spirituality and things like that is a really good combination. And so thank you for telling us a little bit more about that. And I appreciate that. And you might have already touched on this, but I want to ask you for what I call your secret sauce. And this is kind of like what do you feel kind of distinguishes you or sets you apart?

Art Giser 8:56

A couple of things. One is that I make people in my programs take the energetic NLP pledge. And part of that pledge is they won't believe anything that I tell them. So there are a lot of great people teaching spirituality and energy work, but they get very dogmatic and they get very to be simplistic. And I think the spiritual-energetic world is dynamic and complex. And so I teach people how to connect more with others. I offer, obviously, I'm teaching them ideas and how to work with things, but I don't want them to believe my ideas. My job is to help them connect with their own inner wisdom and spiritual information because that will always be better than what I can teach them.

So useful. And teaching them is a bridge for them really get in touch with what's already inside of them. And then I teach them very practical ways to deal with it. So both of those are part of the secret sauce. The other thing is, I think it all should be fun. There are a lot of spiritual systems that are very serious and energetic systems and that's fine. They do great work, but I think people do even better if they're having fun if they're laughing if they kind of get off the spiritual arrogance and just sort of go well, this is what I believe it the moment and what happens if I play around with these things and what gets better and be more of an explorer than idealogue.

Gresham Harkless 10:06

But I wanted to switch gears a little bit and ask you for what I call a CEO hack. And this might be an app or book or habit that you have. But it's something that makes you more effective and efficient.

Art Giser 10:15

Yeah, a really simple habit. And again, if you do this playfully like it's like a little game, like when I'm about to say if you were five years old, you do it brilliantly because you wouldn't overthink it is that there's a principle in energy work that energy follows your thought and intentions in that sounds too simple, but it's true. And you can access a lot of these unconscious abilities using symbols or metaphors. So what I encourage people to do is to imagine a magnet everybody played with a magnet when they were a child. And they know that a magnet has this thing that has energy. And let's say you're holding a pin and holding a magnet, if you let go of the pin, the magnet will do all the work, it'll just pull it over.

So a phenomenal thing to do in the morning or before a bid meeting. Or you can even do it during a meeting, if it's not going well, whether it's a sales presentation, or, or a team meeting, to do it afterward is you just select when I'm working with a group of people and just imagine there's a magnet outside of the room. And I'll just imagine that any of the energy in the room that isn't serving them goes out to the mag, and I don't decide what it is I just the way I think of it is my spirit talks to their spirit and go, what's not helping us here, and we send it out to the magnet, and I just pretend the magnet goes into the earth and gets recycled.

And then I just imagine the room is now being filled with energies that will help them energies of collaboration, creative problem solving, and fun amusement. And I've worked with as many as a couple of 100 people in a corporate group department at one time and completely changed the mood in the room in five minutes. And it's also you get up in the morning, you put a magnet out and go okay, whatever energies in my energy fields, it isn't going to help me today, send it out to the magnet, and then you just ask your Spirit to bring in the energies that will help you if people only did that, everything goes better. And let me just clear be clear, when you deal with other people you don't force anything on them. That's a really bad idea for all kinds of reasons

Gresham Harkless 12:11

That makes perfect sense. And now I wanted to ask you for what I call a CEO nugget. And you might have touched on this too. But this is like a word of wisdom or a piece of advice. Or if you can happen to be a time machine, what would you tell your business self?

Art Giser 12:22

So a couple of one that is particularly for solopreneurs and small businesses is to really take at times during every day, put on that CEO cap and really think of your business as a business from that bigger perspective. So you know, we all get involved in the tactics and what we're doing at the moment, but that not stepping back. So like I had promoted a promoter in England for years, who was doing a horrible job. And people would kind of try to warn me, but I was busy. And I just don't know, that's their job. And I just trusted them. And when I actually start putting attention on it was like, Oh, my God, I'm not doing I'm not being the CEO of my business not going this is like 10 years behind.

Gresham Harkless 13:01

Yeah, that's a great reminder. And, I know you've touched on this one as well, too. But I want to ask you the definition of what it means to you to be a CEO.

Art Giser 13:09

The first thing I would say is that people get to make up how they want to be CEO. And we really have that freedom nowadays. And for sure, as a CEO, you have to have the big picture, you're looking at big strategies, and make sure that you have the right people doing each piece of it, and that you're not doing the things that you shouldn't be doing. And to me, though, along with the vision and this overall picture, the other part is the CEO, it's your job to bring out the best in yourself and other people.

And he's been retired for years now. But when General Electric was super successful, a man named Robert Welch headed it. And he talked about his job is to make sure these fantastic people under him, were coordinating, talking to each other sharing learnings, because that's my job. They're all smarter than me at what they do. My job is to get them to work together, and to set up an environment where they can be at their best. So when I coached leaders and corporations, I was good. That's your job to set up an environment where you can get your best they can get your best, and where they feel free to give you ideas and feedback and to tell you what's working and not. So I hope that answered your question.

Gresham Harkless 14:13

Yeah, it absolutely does. And I think that it's a great perspective. And a reminder for us to kind of remember as being CEOs, anyway we choose is that we have to have kind of that vision and that looking forward and be able to put all those pieces and cogs together. Especially when people have their own specializations or their expertise, we have to be able to kind of piece that all together so that it makes that masterpiece that we want to be our business.

Art Giser 14:35

Yeah, otherwise you're just doing your business. You're not the CEO.

Gresham Harkless 14:38

Exactly. Well, I truly appreciate you Art, and what I wanted to do was pass you the mic just to see if there's anything additional you want to let our readers and our listeners know and then how best they can get a hold of you

Art Giser 14:49

Whether we did it through me or anybody else. I really encourage listeners if this what I'm saying resonates at all, you can start learning the secrets that some of these top people in Silicon Valley and other places are using it, they are working with energy work. And then it's simple, it's fun, it makes everything in your life better from your relationship to your children, to your lover to everybody else. So I really encourage people to investigate this and not buy the propaganda that it's all unscientific and to know this really solid work that can be done there. And I've set up a special web page, it's my general website is energeticnlp.com.

So the word energetic and NLP like Nancy, Larry peter.com, but if they do forward slash, I am CEO, and then your podcasts, then there'll be a page with some special, there'll be like a webinar that will teach them some simple powerful energy processes will be an opportunity if they want to do a free discovery session with me on looking at how different spiritual and energetic aspects of their life are holding them back from completely fulfilling the goals and is a couple of other things. So selling the energeticnlp.com/iamceo pitch

Gresham Harkless 16:03

Awesome. awesome. awesome. Well, thank you so much for putting that together. And we'll make sure to have those links in the show notes so that everybody can follow up with you and hear about all the awesome things that you're doing on an even deeper level. And again, I truly appreciate your time and I hope you have a phenomenal rest of the day

Art Giser 16:16

You too and again, keep up the great work. I think your show is really filling an important niche. So I'm thrilled that you're doing that.

No, I would definitely agree with that.

Yeah, a really simple habit. And again, if you do this playfully like it's like a little game, like when I'm about to say, if you were five years old, you do it brilliantly, because you wouldn't overthink it is that there's a principle in energy work that energy follows your thought and intentions in that sounds too simple, but it's true. And you can access a lot of these unconscious abilities using symbols or metaphors. So what I encourage people to do is to imagine a magnet in everybody played with a magnet when they were a child. And they know that a magnet has this thing that has energy. And let's say you're holding a pin and holding a magnet, if you let go the pin, the magnet will do all the work, it'll just pull it over. So a phenomenal thing to do in the morning or before a bid meeting. Or you can even do it during a meeting, if it's not going well, whether it's a sales presentation, or, or a team meeting, to do it afterwards is you just select when I'm working with a group of people and just imagine there's a magnet outside of the room. And I'll just imagine that any of the energy in the room that isn't serving them goes out to the mag, and I don't decide what it is I just the way I think of it is my spirit talks to their spirit and go, what's not helping us here, and we send it out to the magnet, and I just pretend the magnet goes into the earth and gets recycle. And then I just imagine the room is now being filled with energies that will help them energies of collaboration, creative problem solving, fun amusement. And I've worked with as many as a couple 100 people in a corporate group department at one time and completely changed the mood in the room in five minutes. And it's also you get up in the morning, you put a magnet out and go okay, whatever energies in my energy fields, it isn't going to help me today, send it out to the magnet, and then you just ask your Spirit to bring in the energies that will help you if people only did that, everything goes better. And let me just clear be clear, when you deal with other people you don't force anything on. That's a really bad idea for all kinds of reasons

That makes perfect sense. And now I wanted to ask you for what I call a CEO nugget. And you might have touched on this too. But this is like a word of wisdom or piece of advice. Or if you can happen to a time machine, what would you tell your business self.

Art Giser 12:22

So a couple of one is particularly for solopreneurs and small businesses is to really take at times during every day, put on that CEO cap and really think of your business as a business from that bigger perspective. So you know, every we all get involved in the tactics and what we're doing at the moment, but that not stepping back. So like I had promoted a promoter in England for years, who was doing a horrible job. And people would kind of try to warn me, but I was busy. And I just don't know, that's their job. And I just trusted them. And when I actually start putting attention on it was like, Oh, my God, I'm not doing I'm not being the CEO of my business not going this is this is like 10 years behind.

Gresham Harkless 13:01

Yeah, that's a great reminder. And, and I know you've touched on this one as well, too. But I want to ask you that definition of what it means to you to be a CEO,

Art Giser 13:09

The first thing I would say is that people get to make up how they want to be CEO. And we really have that freedom nowadays. And for sure, as a CEO, you have to have the big picture, you're looking at big strategies, and make sure that you have the right people doing each piece of it, and that you're not doing the things that you shouldn't be doing. And that to me, though, along with the vision and this overall picture, the other part is is the CEO, it's your job to bring out the best in yourself and other people. And he's been retired for years now. But when General Electric was super successful, a man named Robert Welch headed it. And he talked about his job is to make sure these fantastic people under him, were coordinating, talking to each other sharing learnings, because that's my job. They're all smarter than me at what they do. My job is to get them to work together, and to set up an environment where they can be at their best. So when I coached leaders and corporations, I was good. That's your job to set up an environment where you can get your best they can get your best, and where they feel free to give you ideas and feedback and to tell you what's working and not. So I hope that answered your question.

Gresham Harkless 14:13

Yeah, it absolutely does. And I think that, it's a great perspective. And a reminder for us to kind of remember as being CEOs, any way we choose is that we have to have kind of that that vision and that looking forward and be able to put all those pieces and cogs together. Especially when people have their own specializations or their expertise, we have to be able to kind of piece that all together so that it makes that masterpiece that we want to be our business.

Art Giser 14:35

Yeah, otherwise you're just doing your business. You're not the CEO.

Gresham Harkless 14:38

Exatly.Well, I truly appreciate you Art and what I wanted to do was pass you the mic just to see if there's anything additional you want to let our readers and our listeners know and then how best they can get a hold of you

Art Giser 14:49

whether we did it through me or anybody else. I really encourage listeners if this what I'm saying resonates at all, you can start learning the secrets that some of these top people in Silicon Valley and other places are using it, they are working with energy work. And then it's simple, it's fun, it makes everything in your life better from your relationship to your children, to your lover to everybody else. So I really encourage people to investigate this and not buy the propaganda that it's all unscientific and to know this really solid work that can be done there. And I've set up a special web page, it's my general website is energeticnlp.com. So the word energetic and NLP like Nancy, Larry peter.com, but if they do forward slash, I am CEO, and then your podcasts, then there'll be a page with some special, there'll be like a webinar that will teach them some simple powerful energy processes will be an opportunity if they want to do a free discovery session with me on looking at how different spiritual and energetic aspects of their life are holding them back from completely fulfilling the goals and is a couple of other things. So selling the energeticnlp.com/iamceo pitch

Gresham Harkless 16:03
