Happiness Leads To Success

Positive Brains

Creating Cohesive Teams


When you think of the word TEAM, what comes to mind? If you are like most teams, it is a combination of many different thoughts. Some positive and some not so positive.

In this dynamic and interactive presentation, we will explore the role we each play in team dynamics and leadership. We will explore how Psychological Safety plays into the team equation, how this impacts patient care, and how this can ultimately lead to practice success. After all, we spend more time together than we do with our own families!

During our time together, within each of your own team groups, we will explore what it means to be a part of productive team and how to address challenges when they arise

You Will Learn:

  • The research behind why we are more effective working in groups vs individuals.
  • What makes great teams and how to foster this in your own practice
  • How we are collectively responsible for our practice’s success.
  • How our thoughts guide our actions and how to foster Psychological Safety for yourself and the team.

Your Mindset, an Inside Job


Our mind and mindset are powerful tools that can work for us and or against us. We are not in control of what happens to us and yet, we are in control of how we react to the events in our lives. In this presentation, you will acquire the skills to understand how your brain interprets the world and how this understanding can serve you.

You Will Learn:

  • Understand the difference between the Fixed and Growth Mindsets
  • Understand the Michael Singer’s concept of “… you are not the voice of the mind – you are the one who hears it.”
  • Understand how your interpretations, assumptions, and limiting beliefs guide our perceptions of the world and the resultant actions in our lives.

Whole-Being, Well-Being, and Happiness


In this presentation, we will discuss the concept of whole-being, AKA happiness, and how these fit into the reality of a leader’s well-being. In the words of Plato, “The part can never be well unless the whole is well.” We will also discuss the dualistic concepts of Western society versus the wholistic concepts of our Eastern counterparts.

You Will Learn:

  • Introduce the components of the SPIRE model of whole-being as described by Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar.
  • Discuss the concept of Dualism and how this has worked against our understandings of the mind-body connection.
  • Contrast the concepts of toxic positivity versus the science of happiness.
  • Provide research-driven solutions to increase the levels of happiness and whole being in your life.
Martin Mendelson Speaking


Your professionalism, organization, and communication style made it an absolute pleasurable learning experience. The reviews from my Study Club member’s as well as the other club’s membership were fantastic. Everyone had something they could take back with them and start implementing it into their practice.

— H Miller

What makes an amazing speaker? I have had the pleasure of attending several of Dr. Mendelson’s lectures. I can honestly say he meets and exceeds all the standards and qualities that make a great great speaker. I have continually enjoyed the clarity and systematic approach to his speaking. You will immediately know that he is extremely intelligent and his preparation is unparalleled. I have never seen him unable to handle questions or challenges with ease. I look forward to the next time I have the opportunity to hear him speak, because I know I will be positioned to understand and implement the topic he is presenting. If you have a chance to hear him speak…GO!

Martin, Thank you so much for coming out and putting on a great program for Raleigh Periodontics.  You truly surpassed all expectations. There was a lot of chatter amongst team members that this was the most engaging team program they had ever attended. The emphasis on teamwork and the exercises that spurred in depth dialogue among team members were spot on! Thanks again for a fabulous program. Look forward to having you back.!
