Myelin’s senior advisors (former Tier 1 special ops personnel, FBI hostage negotiators, CEOs, intelligence officers and professional athletes) help continuous improvement leaders combine two methodologies when influencing staff to "buy in" to the company's operational excellence initiative. These methodologies include: 1) the brain science of intentional repetitions that the world's highest achievers use to rewire their brains, and how the leader's team can use the same steps; and (2) the skills used by FBI hostage negotiators and executive advisors of CEOs and professional athletes in influencing others during one-on-one conversations.
