Instructor Biography

Patrick Howell, NLP, Happiness, Self Esteem, NLP, Positive Psychology

The only Udemy instructor who's facilitated human development programs for leading organizations like these:

US Department of Defense

Meridian Health

I'm Patrick Howell and I love helping people experience greater wellbeing, happiness and confidence.

I've trained and coached people at a variety of organizations. I've coached executives past roadblocks created by poor communication.  I've taught people in seminars around the country, certifying them in applied positive psychology and neuro-linguistic programming. I also teach workplace engagement curriculum for local community colleges.

I am the director of coaching at Internal Change Academy, which provides research assistance and personal development programs to growth-seeking individuals.

After leaving a career with the global Dale Carnegie Training company where I won multiple awards as a trainer, I founded Team Development Group. As the managing director of Team Development Group, I head a team that includes happiness experts, NLP practitioners, and workplace learning trainers that teach public seminars and in corporations.

I am also the co-author of the best-selling field manual The Positive Workplace that was published by the American Society for Training & Development in 2015.

But for me, the best part of my job involves sharing my knowledge of happiness interventions with others.  I love giving people the confidence to live their best-possible lives. 

Instructor Biography

Ken Wells, Best-Selling Instructor, Coach, Meditation Teacher, NLP

Ken Wells is an internationally sought after speaker, teacher and coach.  He is the author of 18 Best-Selling courses and coaching programs covering topics such as meditation, online course marketing, personal transformationmindfulness and spirituality.

I teach forward thinking, open-minded individuals how to reshape their perception of themselves. 

This is so they can clearly identify and effectively reach their true goals while finding more meaning, joy and freedom along the way.

Whether that goal is more happiness, better relationships, greater spiritual awareness, more money or simply to experience less anxiety and frustration.

I do this by using the same techniques and approaches used by Professional Athletes, World Class Business Executives as well as Creative Geniuses. This is all set against a backdrop of raising your Spiritual Awareness.

I believe that goal achievement is more about personal transformation than anything else.

Despite having many disadvantages starting out, I was able to dramatically improve just about every area of my life.

I went from deeply depressed to consistently happy, anxious to peaceful, started my own successful business, dramatically improved my physical health and went from feeling isolated & disconnected to feeling truly connected and whole mentally, physically and spiritually.

Nowadays, I get to do what I love, which is help other people become happier and have more personal freedom and find new ways to live the type of lifestyle that they choose.

All this has come about primarily by changing my perception.
