SPEAKING & INTERVIEW TOPICS
Alchemy in Love
A no-nonsense guide for women and men to truly understand each other.
This workshop is a guide to discover why so many of our self-defeating patterns in relationships exist due to unrealistic expectations or merely choosing the wrong partner. And it’s not just age or maturity – it requires a huge commitment of self-care to truly know ourselves by becoming authentic.
There are 3 main talking points within this discussion:
- The Four Pillars of a Man
- The Four Layers of a Woman
- Core Relationship Tools
The Art of Reading People
Imagine having the gift of X-ray vision to see through people’s defense mechanisms so you could really see what makes them tick? With his 30-years of experience as a psychotherapist delving deeply into the shadows of the psyche, Jamie will show you how to connect with the people who matter to you most. This powerful workshop is not a gimmick but more a guided set of skills how to recognize trustworthiness, emotional intelligence and receptivity and to develop the personal leverage to help you effectively create the impact you desire.
Handling Victims and Egomaniacs
If you consider the most challenging personalities you’ve likely had to deal with, they fall into two categories: Victims and Egomaniacs. In this relationship survivor guide, Jamie empowers you with the skills necessary to handle both. Pay attention to his“Do’s and Don’ts” in order to be most effective in your interactions with them, whilst keeping you from becoming totally drained! Listen for the dirty secret of the Egomaniac and discover where you might be on the victim-ego spectrum.
Lead, Follow or Get Out of the Way!
Leadership does not mean hiding behind credentials or pulling rank! In his experience as a psychotherapist and leadership trainer for the past 30 years, Jamie has developed essential principles to becoming an “effective” leader through deep self-awareness and the art of connecting with those you lead. This seminar is suitable for Business minds and those with an Entrepreneurial spirit who want to lead by example and inspiration.
Mirroring or Projecting?
As we go through life, our behavior is being “mirrored” or reflected back to us by everyone we interact with. It’s crucial to recognize when someone is projecting onto you – notice the intensity coming from them like a high-charged over-reaction. We’re often guilty ourselves of projecting our strong opinions, beliefs and judgments onto others. The trick in life is to catch our own projections. This is a valuable discussion on how to understand the relationship between mirroring versus projecting and the discernment to know the difference!
Control Freaks Of The World Unite!
Being a control freak is grossly under-rated! The degree to which you crave control is equal to how much you don’t trust. But, trust is not a decision we make – it’s a partnership we co-create with someone who demonstrates consistent, dependability. In this seminar Jamie will introduce you to his Trust Formula to help you learn who to trust and how to trust them. An empowering seminar for control freaks – just make sure you’re obsessed with self-control, rather than trying to manipulate or control anyone else!
What Clients Are Saying
President & CEO, Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute
Jamie Greene, LMFT is insightful, irreverent, and fun! He knows how to authentically connect with college students, drawing them out of their shell and inspiring them to fulfill their greatest potential. In 2010 when I was the Executive Director of the USC Latino Alumni Association, I hired Jamie to be our in-residence life coach to teach life-skills workshops to 200+ USC students. Over 65% of our Latino students were first in their families to go to college; many were experiencing the normal stress and anxiety associated with college life.
Jamie was thoughtful and uplifting in his coaching. He used humor and wit to drive the point home, always emphasizing the positive. Our students’ consistently gave him outstanding reviews for the nearly four years he worked with us.
I enthusiastically recommend Jamie Greene as a speaker, adjunct faculty, and life coach!

He doesn’t pull punches, and he’s never let me down. There’s no pressure with Jamie, he’s there when you need him and gone when you don’t. Talking with Jamie isn’t like going to a shrink, it’s like hanging out with an old friend.
