Catalytic Color: Flow & The Balanced Brain Benefit

"Into the Depths" by Leanne Venier, Oil on Canvas

Saturday, March 14, 2015
12:30 – 1:30 pm

The New JW Marriott
Austin, TX

#ColorNFlow   #SXSW

Leanne’s Panel Will Discuss:

* Why it’s important to utilize both brain hemispheres to run a Successful Business, including Left Brain (analytical & task-oriented) & Right Brain (Creative & Intuitive, where Innovation & Insights occur, often during Flow state).

* The benefits of Flow, an optimal, Right-Brain integrated state of consciousness where people feel & perform their best & Innovation occurs. Most cutting-edge scientific & Technological Breakthroughs occur in Flow as do major athletic & art achievements. A Recent McKinsey 10-year study showed Top Executives are 5 times more effective when operating in Flow & if we increase the amount we’re in Flow by a mere 20%, Workplace Productivity would double.

* How to optimize Color & Indoor Lighting in work environments to enhance Flow, promote Teamwork, maximize Productivity & Peak Performance & dramatically improve Employee Health & Job Satisfaction.

* How to quickly & easily Train our Brains (neuroplasticity) to access Flow whenever desired using Right-Brain exercises.


Benefits of Flow & Why You’ll Want to Attend this Panel – from an Entrepreneur & Engineer

“I had some concerns about Leanne Venier’s Color & Creative Flow course being rather woo-woo in nature, taught by someone so caught up in enlightenment that their feet floated off the ground. The truth is, Leanne’s course was a reflection of her own groundedness in the reality of everyday life. She is that rare breed of human as teacher who combines the best of an engineer’s mind with that of an artist’s mind, all with a desire to help others find their greatest talents themselves. I felt right at home with the way she led the course.

There are specific reasons for everything Leanne does. During the course I began to realize the finesse of her delivery of these ideas. The use of colors as tools for finding your creative flow is ingenious, and you get why that is so as you listen to her talk and allow yourself to experience what she has on offer.

So after I had the initial ‘ah-has’ around some personal issues that emerged, I just let go more fully on the second exercise and noticed a kind of giddy excitement. That was huge. I was beginning to sense the ‘feeling’ of being in my creative flow. This is what I wanted to learn, and this is what I want to bring to other media creators.

As we continue into this 21st century, I expect we’ll see more and more businesses of all types focusing on these kinds of exercises because in the end the machines will be doing the dreary work. It’s the humans who will be required to do the creative work. You cannot manufacture creative work nor can creative work always be done 8-5.

I can imagine Leanne’s insights of light and colors and how they impact our lives being shared as a secret weapon for architectural teams, ad firms, design firms, even sales teams wanting to truly gain the competitive edge.

Creativity is the higher currency of this new economy. Go to this course and see for yourself.”
