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. Personal clients often come to me to work through challenging issues. While together they often discover the art of Narrative Therapy and learn to re-write their life stories. 

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 2014.

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.
