Move from trial and error to proven strategies
When people think of outperforming themselves, they tend to focus on improving external, measurable results and miss the ease and elegance that comes from knowing precisely what inner tools and techniques to use and when. Worse, usually people who attempt to use inner mindset work are guided by only the vaguest of notions or limited approaches borrowed from pop psychology that don’t give an effective map to move from one performance level to another. This leaves people frustrated, ashamed, embarrassed, or feeling that there is something wrong with them when in fact they just used a limited understanding or limiting tools.
In this talk, your audience will learn:
Strategies to regain control and manage your attention
In the hectic culture we live in, where life just keeps speeding up and the market, political, and social structures we rely on are constantly changing, and we are forced to continually learn new information, more technology, and skills, staying clear about our priorities and adhering to what’s most important to us without getting distracted is becoming increasingly more challenging. Although we live in this fast-paced 21st century, our brains and inner operating systems haven’t fully adapted to the information explosion we’re facing, which means we often feel reactive and overwhelmed as a result.
Dr. Ilani uses her cutting-edge tool, The Pause Method®, to help your audience rein in overwhelm and feel calm, centered, and clear in the face of all this change.
In this talk, your audience will learn:
A ground-breaking approach to embracing diversity
As our culture has changed its values, there is an increasing pressure and demand, both legally and otherwise, to be racially and culturally correct toward all diverse groups and minorities. However, the necessary means to change — both internally and externally — has not been provided. We even use punitive measures against those who outwardly express these prejudices without teaching them how to change. This pressure forces people to repress their now unacceptable notions deeper into their subconscious, which puts them paradoxically at greater risk for prejudicial behavior.
As a daughter of a Holocaust Survivor, Dr. Ilani understands that diversity challenges are not limited to stereotypical scenarios but rather affect people from all levels of educational, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds, and that traditional education is not the solution. The change must come from within.

How to instantly transform your business, career and life with uncanny precision and reliable results
We all have greater potential than we currently manifest. The standard approach to solving this problem is “mindset” work or belief change work, which only scratches the surface of what’s required for deeper, lasting change. Dr. Ilani teaches that we need to change both your “inner operating system”, which means working at a much deeper level, and your specific inner “programs” on a regular basis.
This is because as you shift to a new level, if you don’t reprogram your inner operating system, very much like upgrading your computer, you will experiences glitches in your reality and frustration as you hit your own unique inner glass ceiling. To make real, proactive change, it’s necessary for you to get ahead of the curve and learn the inner skills necessary to reprogram key inner aspects of yourself, including your image and beliefs, the obsolete survival rules and contracts you made at moments of intense experiences as a child, adolescent, or even later in life.
The bottom line is that what you don’t know can hurt or limit you and your business or career.
In this talk, your audience will learn:
Innovative solutions for relationship building & get better results in your life and business
Getting along with others, whether at work or in our personal lives, can be incredibly challenging — particularly when we consider how much we’re already affected by the constantly changing world around us, economically, politically, socially, and otherwise. We can feel threatened, anxious, irritable, and angry when difficult personal interactions arise. When we react to these situations without understanding the deeper forces at play in ourselves and others, we ultimately limit the success of our interactions — and the results we might see in our lives or work as a result.
What we must learn instead is to make conscious choices about how we respond to others, based in a deeper understanding of the true role emotions play in our interactions. We must also learn to recognize, value, and properly utilize both our vulnerabilities and strengths.
Dr. Ilani will teach your audience:
Cutting edge lessons for daily performance from neuroscience & more
As a neurofeedback specialist and a long-term meditator, Dr. Ilani has a unique set of insights on how to optimize one’s brain for greater success. Fortunately, science has moved from a fixed perception of the brain’s potential to a deeper understanding of the flexibility of the brain, termed neuroplasticity. We now understand that we can create new neural connections until the day we die, overriding our old neuropathways and creating new, more optimal pathways.
Dr. Ilani teaches specific techniques we can use boost our brains and maximize our performance with diet, supplements, brain exercises, reprogramming, and how intensely positive experiences all can contribute to brain optimization.

"I am sorry to say that I missed Dr. Ilani's brief to 750 Marines returning from deployment and their spouses. One of our Training Directors in attendance stated “It was the best brief I ever have heard on the base in the past 15 years.” At the end of her presentation, the entire Marines' group gave Dr. Ilani a big “Oorah” (in this context, an equivalent to a civilian's standing ovation). I did have the opportunity to take one of Dr. Ilani's seminars last year. I was very impressed by the experience and the immediate impact her seminar made on my life."
