Personal development

Executed as a series of workshops covering a range of interesting and relevant topics, the goal is to help you grow as you lead and interact with others. With practical life application so that the lessons you learn actually stick and transform your life, you’ll examine your story, your biases, your ego structure and the lens through which you view the world. Understanding and unentangling from the selves we’ve constructed allows us to become the best version of who we are – uniquely – as we show up in our personal and professional worlds.

Expanding your own level of awareness will do wonders for your ability to relate to others more effectively and with compassion. Let’s face it, we’re humans and our own personal stuff gets in the way at times – without us even recognizing it! The workshops are designed to spark a deep awareness and healing, igniting real inner growth so you can lead greatly.

Team development

The Enneagram offers so many incredible possibilities for team development. I offer corporate team development workshops that can be tailored to your team’s specific priorities and challenges.

As a former attorney and leader in the non-profit sphere, I have seen firsthand the power of emotionally intelligent leaders to drive a transformed culture and a thriving workplace. I can work with you to customize a growth path most helpful for maximizing your team’s growth and potential.

Relationship Workshops

2 hour workshop

Parenting Styles: What you bring to parenting

Become aware of how your Enneagram Type impacts how you parent. Experiential exercises and activities will improve parenting styles for better communication and conflictual areas of concern. Develop empathy and compassion for the differences you have with your partner and children.

2 hour workshop

What You Bring to Your Relationships

Elevate your consciousness by understanding what you bring to all your relationships and how to improve them. With this mindful approach, you become aware that the people you have relationships with often have a different lens, motivated by different desires and needs. You are guided in communicating this to each other as you take responsibility for communicating what you need. You grow in understanding, which leads to empathy. Instead of being triggered and reactive at one another’s quirks, you can respond in love. Your deeper relational skills will lead to greater connection.

Corporate Training

2 hour workshop

Decoding Communication Styles

Build your team’s emotional intelligence as they discover the different communication styles of each member. They’ll also build self-awareness by exploring the strengths and blindspots of their own style. Utilizing the Enneagram as a mindfulness tool, team members will learn how to more effectively communicate with each other to increase effective collaboration and conflict resolution.

2 hour workshop

Decision Making Styles

Understanding how each Enneagram Type makes decisions provides a roadmap for harnessing the strengths of your team. So whether you focus most on responsibly doing the right thing (1), how people will be impacted and what they need (2), the most efficient option for success (3), staying true to their values (4), thoroughly analyzing all relevant facts (5), taking the least amount of risk (6), visualizing possibilities and creating options (7), being in charge and taking action (8), or unifying different perspectives into a harmonious decision (9), learning to lean into the discomfort of your team’s differences and approach with curiosity is key in creating a culture of courageous leadership.

2 hour workshop

Understanding Conflict Styles to Accelerate Performance

Each Enneagram Type handles conflict differently and learning the differences can help team members lean into discomfort to deal with differences. You will be trained to mindfully resolve conflict healthier, from a place of empathy and openness. Conflict can be embraced to spark innovative thinking when you have an open stance where you can together ponder how to creatively solve your problems, utilizing the strengths that come from having different perspectives. It’s a powerful shift resulting in more cohesion in your team, accelerating performance.

2 hour workshop

What Keeps Us from Moving Forward

This workshop explores those things that keep you stuck and keep you from moving forward in life. It will explore your fears, hidden limiting beliefs, and unconscious resistances that keep you from growing. It will empower you to befriend your fear as your guide so you can mindfully, bravely move through it.

1 hour workshop

Anger Workshop

Do you get frustrated by colleagues not being forthright about how they feel? Or anxious by ones who express it with great force? Most people are very uncomfortable with anger and don’t know how to use this human emotion in a healthy manner. This workshop grows emotional intelligence and helps participants explore their fears around anger, get in touch with how it shows up in their bodies, and see the benefits of mindfully expressing their anger. Participants learn how to utilize their anger to fuel change, and spark creativity and innovation.

2 hour workshop

Loss Workshop

Everyone knows we need to grieve when someone dies, but we also need to feel the many losses that frequently come into our lives, even small losses that come with change (including those you label as good). This workshop takes you through the grieving process so you can understand it’s impact on your life, learn how to mindfully grieve and embrace vulnerability to regain your strength.
