It is well known that hypnosis and hypnotherapy can significantly improve a person’s job performance in many different ways, benefiting the employee as well as the company. And yet many people may not really understand exactly what this means or how hypnosis can help. Representing perhaps the hottest, most talented and most talked about hypnotist in the world today, we here at Metropolis Management thought it might not be a bad idea to get into this subject in a little more detail.

So, going beyond the common, and absolutely correct, assumption that booking a good hypnotist for a show or workshops is a great idea for any company, let’s get into specifically how it can benefit your employees and your business. And the best way to begin is to identify some of the main issues hurting and holding back your employees and, by inevitable extension, your company.


Fear is a major barrier to a person’s success, personally and professionally. In the corporate world fear of failure or rejection can cause employees to keep ideas to themselves, even if those ideas have merit and could really benefit the company. A supervisor or manager, on the other hand, may be reluctant to listen to or utilize their employees’ ideas, based on fear of being usurped or of making a bad decision. Higher level management may back down from important decisions and bold, innovative directions for their department or the company, because of fear of change, fear of failure or other fears which cannot always be so easily defined. These are, of course, only a very few ways in which fear can hold back an individual, a team, a department or a company.

Of course some fears are important and helpful. They protect and guide us, keep us from pain and suffering, help us make wise decisions. The thing about fear, though, is that the vast majority of it isn’t that way – it doesn’t actually help us. Most fear is not related to the present moment in any kind of meaningful way. It is based on some past trauma or danger which continues to threaten us, even at times when there is no actual danger. And while many may recommend hypnosis or some other form of therapy when a person has suffered trauma, this assumes that that person will know about the trauma, or even the fear, which is quite often not at all the case. Indeed, as regards fear, almost anybody can benefit from hypnosis.


The same things could be said for anxiety which, like fear, is very rarely based on the actual events surrounding a person in the present moment. Another major negative factor in today’s workplace, anxiety is perhaps a lower level emotional state than fear, but also more frequently, even constantly, present for many people, and potentially even more damaging and counterproductive.

Where fear may make a person decide to hold back on sharing ideas, implementing improvements or confronting problems or new challenges, anxiety can eat away at a person to the point that they may not have new ideas, see the possibility for improvement or even allow themselves to even realize that problems exist. An anxious employee will tend to narrow their focus, keep safe and quiet, and experience low levels of inspiration and creativity. Moreover, anxiety can rob a person of even normal levels of enjoyment or satisfaction in their job.


Fear and anxiety are not perhaps that frequently discussed in corporate environments, and are rarely mentioned by employees who may be suffering from them, but they are two of the biggest problems in the workplace, drastically lowering productivity, creativity, communication and teamwork and general morale – for both individuals, workgroups and entire offices. Fortunately these are some of the main areas in which hypnosis can help.


By suggesting positive messages to the unconscious mind, messages designed to reduce or eliminate fear or anxiety and supplant them with courage, ease and even assertiveness, and by making certain that those messages are there when needed most, hypnosis can increase a person’s functionality, happiness and even health, and make them more confident, positive and productive, benefiting them, everybody they work with and the whole company on so many levels.


And this is one of the greatest things about the decision to have somebody like Sailesh come to your company – it is extremely good for business, but it is maybe even better for the people in your business, helping them not only be better employees but to feel and to better in every aspect of their lives.

There are numerous other benefits as well, such as how hypnosis can help a person learn more and retain more. An ambitious and motivated employee may want to learn more about the business, the market and their competition, about technology, about their own department and process, about sales, creativity, communication, or any of the other countless subjects which can help their career and their company. By losing fear and anxiety, and using hypnosis to increase memory and retention and to become a better learner, the person will learn more and be able to put the new knowledge to better use.

We can also mention stress, and stress related fatigue, as major factors in keeping employees, teams and processes from their full professional potential, and again hypnosis can help. Indeed the tools, suggestions and triggers a qualified hypnotist can provide are among the most reliable and effective ways there are to reduce and deal with stress and fatigue, helping people to be more calm, centered and focused, improve sleep, diet and personal habits, increase efficiency and productivity and be able to meet deadlines and expectations without burning out.

And, if you have never seen Sailesh before, we should also mention that the show itself is an incredible way to reduce stress and blow off steam. An unforgettable experience of laughter, fascination and fun unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before, it will give everybody just the break they may need. And at the same time they will be learning, interacting, coming closer and knowing themselves and each other better, feeling better about their jobs, about the company and about themselves.


When a company does well it is possible that the people in that company will feel good, but when people in a company feel good it is certain that that company will do well.
