Guest Biography

Bruce Cryer has spent more than thirty years training and coaching innovative approaches to maximizing health and human performance. He was named President and CEO of HeartMath in 2000, having helped launch the non-profit Institute of HeartMath with founder Doc Childre in 1991.

Bruce was the key architect of programs that incorporate HeartMath’s innovative biomedical research into practical tools and strategies to enhance health, performance, creativity, innovation, and productivity for both the individual and the organization.

Bruce was lead author of the acclaimed Harvard Business Review article, entitled “Pull the Plug on Stress” (July 2003) which was republished by HBR in 2015.

He has worked with leadership teams at organizations such as The World Bank, Stanford Business School, NASA, Mayo Clinic, Shell, Unilever, Cisco, Johnson & Johnson, Duke University Health System, and dozens of other corporations, health systems and government agencies across the US.

Mr. Cryer is co-author of one of the first management books to draw a research link between stress/resilience/leadership performing in his seminal book From Chaos to Coherence: The Power to Change Performance.

Since 1997 Mr. Cryer has been adjunct faculty at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business as well as Stanford’s School of Medicine. He has been a featured speaker across the US in the Lessons in Leadership Distinguished Speakers Series, and has been on the faculty of the Global Institute for Leadership Development.

A two year health crisis became a healing journey which convinced him to focus his energies and passions on personal healing, leadership development, and the creativity/innovation link. He writes for Innovation Excellence as well as other blogs.

Bruce’s professional career began as a singer, dancer, and actor on Broadway, including 800 performances in New York playing The Boy in The Fantasticks, the world’s longest running musical. He currently works and performs with a number of performing arts organizations in New York City.

Life Changes Show

Show Host

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
