Tina Hallis, Ph.D. - Positivity Expert & Founder of The Positive Edge
Tina has dedicated her career to helping individuals and companies increase their POSITIVITY. Just a simple shift in focus changes our entire experience, whether it’s a major transition, our work, or our colleagues and customers. As an individual, this increases our enjoyment and success at work. As a company, it improves productivity, morale, and retention.
In every moment we have a choice. We can let our natural survival instincts focus us on all the problems and challenges, or we can choose to shift our thinking to also notice the good. Tina's programs share insights and strategies to make that choice easier. The result is more resilience, less stress, and increased motivation.
As a professional speaker and a corporate trainer, Tina increases people's positivity to help organizations create:
- Engaged People
- Energized Sales Teams
- Exceptional Workplaces

Tina did a great job at our executive networking meeting presenting “Finding Sanity in Ambiguity and Uncertainty.” She really connected with the audience as the topic was very relevant for people who are currently in transition. Searching for a new job, especially as an executive, can be very challenging and stressful. Tina shared scientifically based strategies to help deal with this stress and make the process easier. Her approach was engaging and interactive. We received many positive comments from the participants after the presentation. — Cory Erickson, President and CEO at Career Momentum, Inc.
