Lyony Ozephius

Hi there! I’m Lyony Ozephius. So Nice to meet you! Well, at least digitally…

With your permission, I’d love to share some of my origin story. I’ve spent the past decade researching what makes people tick. I handpicked insights from psychology, neuroscience, body language, micro-expressions, emotional intelligence, coaching, change management, and behaviour analysis to create a practical model of the human brain.

During my research, I discovered that you need to understand 7 distinct processes in your brain to skyrocket your EQ (the powerful sibling of IQ). When you know your own brain, you can optimise performance, discover your blindspots, and increase your observational awareness (also known as people-reading skills). I teach the model in an online video course, coaching sessions, and live training programs.

I’d be happy to assist if you have any questions about your e-Factor test results or Emotional Intelligence in general. If you’d like to increase your EQ or your company’s EQ, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn or send an email to lyony@thebehaviorhacker.com

Thanks for your interest, and have a great day!

Lyony
