Joseph Riggio


Joseph Riggio, architect and designer of the MythoSelf® Process and Soma-Semantics®, is a leading figure in international NLP and hypnosis circles. He is acclaimed for the breadth, depth and precision of his expertise as a transformational change artist. In these circles Joseph’s skill in the utilization of somatics is renowned, as are his hypnotic language, metaphor and storytelling skills.
Dr. Riggio has developed seminal work in the area of applied mythology related to personal and professional development, especially as it applies to decision-making, performance and leadership. He has made ground-breaking contributions in applications of communication, interaction and performance. The fundamental technology that Joseph continues to develop is aesthetically organized and transcends the limitations of ordinary cognition running the process at the sub-cortical level of implicit learning in what he refers to as the “silent brain”.
A highly regarded professional consultant and mentor, Joseph has worked with leading Fortune 100 International companies and thousands of executives within them. Dr. Riggio’s proprietary training programs for these clients, like Persuasion Technology® and Negotiation Technology®, in sales and leadership development have been delivered in over thirty countries and translated into more than ten languages. His recent focus has been on transferring his experience and expertise in this world to smaller businesses and professional practices, mentoring entrepreneurs and private practice professionals. He works closely with expert advisors; e.g.: consultants, coaches, counselors, mentors, trainers, therapists, etc., in developing their professional skills and business models – with a specific interest in guiding these professionals in becoming thought-leaders and developing multi-million dollar practices for themselves.
While Dr. Riggio is well known and well regarded for his work developing new transformational performance methods and technology, he is probably most widely known as a keynote speaker and workshop leader. Joseph has run thousands of programs around the world for people seeking personal, professional and organizational transformation and performance improvement. He is also a published author having written, co-authored and contributed to many books and articles. His first book, “Towards a Theory of Transpersonal Decision-Making in Human Systems,” is considered a seminal work by many and has been widely used and quoted by others in their own research, writing and work.
More than twenty years of developing the essential material that comprises the MythoSelf® Process work and the Soma-Semantics® model led Joseph to producing TCP | The Complete Package, a multi-media program clients can use on their own, designed to create the kind of transformational results he is renowned for generating with clients in his workshops and when doing private work with them. TCP | The Complete Package is built on a sophisticated platform using custom music tracks composed and mastered by Richard Diaz specifically for Dr. Riggio to his precise specifications integrating Joseph’s spoken hypnotic protocols to guide users in making transformational change in their lives personally and professionally.
