How to Hypnotize Your Boss: 6 Hypnotic Steps to Getting More Respect, Money, Power, and Even That Corner Office

In this guest post, Maxwell Terentino, a professional hypnotherapist in St. Albans, Vermont, provides mind-altering strategies through neuro-hypnotism to aid in improving your work conditions.

After 14 years of using hypnotherapy to help my clients with various types of anxieties, I learned that the root of many social anxiety issues was simply not having enough money.

You see, money can help an anxious person feel more secure because they have the flexibility to pay for whatever they need. Money is the antidote for anxiety and depression, not pills and hypnotherapy.

So I began training my clients on some groundbreaking methods to hypnotize their bosses into getting promotions, bonuses, and the money they’ve always wanted. And this method has been extremely successful in helping my clients achieve more wealth and respect they thought possible. They have also been very generous with me by sharing a % of their first year’s salary increase as agreed prior to teaching them this hypnotic method.

Here are 6 steps to put your boss into a highly-suggestive state:

Step 1: Build rapport with your boss.
The first step in hypnotism is make your boss feel comfortable with you. The goal is to make sure your boss is feeling relaxed, and not defensive. Tell him or her a few funny stories to get some laughs — and even give him or her a scented candle gift to aid in relaxation in the office.

Step 2: Begin talking in a deep, calming voice.
As you talk with your boss, begin adjusting your tone and tempo so that you you begin talking slowly and with deep voice. You want your boss to start to hang on your every word, and to feel very comfortable with the words you are saying.

Step 3: Tell your boss that you’d like to show some family photos.
There are a variety of ways to start a hypnotic trance, but I’ve found that using James Braid’s original eye-fixation hypnotic induction method works easiest. The goal is to get your boss to stare at a shiny object above their forehead to produce the greatest possible strain and encourage them to maintain a steady stare. Tell your boss that you want to show some recent family photos on your smart phone. Slowly wave the phone about 15 inches away from their eyes — and watch the pupils. Wait for the pupils to dilate and soon to close involuntarily. If your boss is having trouble focusing on the picture, you’re on the right path. Play some Yani music to aid in relaxation as you show different pictures.

Step 4: Use positive reinforcement while showing pictures.
As you talk about the pictures, mention how “relaxed” and “calm” you were with the family. Throw in some positive reinforcements like: “you’re doing a good job” and “you are totally relaxed and at peace right now.”

Step 5: Once trance begins, suggest the things you want.
Once your boss is in a trance, you can begin suggesting the things you need — and how getting more money, better position, and new office space, would bring more happiness. In fact, suggest that the more money you get, the happier and more joyful your boss will be. Suggest that your boss write an email to the whole company about how valuable you are to the team — and how each word of the memo will multiply the amount of happiness and pleasure your boss will feel. Suggest how much more money you want, the office you desire, and even that you need more time off to spend with family.

Step 6: Emerge your boss from hypnotism through counting.
Once you’ve suggested everything you want, tell your boss that at the count of 5 they will awake completely at peace and thrilled with your work performance. As you count, make your voice louder and louder so that at 5 you are talking in your normal voice (and are just finishing up a funny story about something that happened the previous weekend. Your boss will think he or she just dozed off, but will be feeling great about your work.

By following these 6 steps, you’ll begin acquiring everything you’ve ever wanted at your job.

How to Resolve Office Conflict: 7 Dance-Battle Moves You Should Know

At some point, everyone is going to have conflict in the workplace.

And while office conflict can lead to delinquency, substance abuse, and gang involvement, conflict can also have positive results by increasing productivity and helping everyone understand each other better.

As a management consultant, I teach employees how to deal with office problems in healthy ways — and I show them movie clips of how kids on the streets deal with conflict through dance battles (e.g. Stomp the Yard, You Got Served).

Dance battles are actually highly-effective ways to engage your office opponent and seek resolution to a problem without resorting to drug-use and violence. Here is a list of popular dance movies you should know to help you express yourself the next time you have an argument at work:

1. Side Jerk








I think the “Side Jerk” is a great way to open a dance because it’s confrontational with arms bent up, while your legs move in and out marking your dance territory.

2. Knockout







Give your opponent a taste of your aggression with this “knockout” dance move that gets you into a boxer’s stance. This shows you mean business. You could also use the “Punch Out” dance move if you prefer (as performed in Soulja Boy’s “Crank That” performance).

3. UFO Front







The “UFO Front” tells your opponent that you don’t agree with what they are telling you, and you feel like their thinking is from outer space. Move your hands above your head in “cop stop” pose while moving your arms from left to right.

4. Big Boss








If you’re a subordinate, use the “Big Boss” dance move to mock your superior. And if you are the boss, you can show power over your subordinate by looking down on them with this killer move.

5. Make Way






Tell your opponent to get out of your way as you climb the corporate ladder with this arm-waving move that pushes them away with a sweeping motion.

6. Head Way






Tell your colleague at work that you need some breathing room with this “head way” move that moves your arm above your head to show that you’re just trying to get through your day without all the drama.

7. No Worries







End your battle with a “No Worries” move that shows your opponent that everything is “all good” and you’re at peace for whatever decision is made. This dance move shows that you’re all about love and peace in the streets. There’s no need to shed any more blood.

You see, dance is always a great way to deal stress and a healthy way to end workplace conflict.  The next time you have a conflict with a co-worker or boss, turn up your computer speakers on full-blast with “Where is the love?” by the Black Eyed Peas and get your groove on.  Peace out.
