Steve Haffner

Mind performance strategist

Steve Haffner had a successful 30-year career as a systems developer, project manager and executive, working for bosses at companies such as Humana, E.D.S., and Mercer.

In 2011 he shocked his colleagues and friends by quitting that career to become a full-time, professional magician.

As a creator of deceptions, Steve discovered that the same mental errors, distortions and misperceptions that magicians exploit and manipulate to create magic - also influence our everyday thinking and decision making as well.

Today, Steve is a mind performance strategist. He combines insights from his previous careers with research from the fields of psychology, behavioral science, and neuroscience.

Steve presents his keynote and educational programs to associations and businesses throughout the U.S. on:
- The illusions that prevent and undermine high-trust relationships
- The hidden effects of stress on thinking and decision making
- and improving overall mind performance.
