Organization Trainings and Workshops

Providing Experiential Learning in:

  • Communication Clarity

  • Team Alliance

  • Exponential Leadership


The research is mounting to confirm what many people have known intuitively for a long time -- Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a greater predictor of professional success than either classic IQ or on-the-job experience. The Enneagram is the single most powerful tool available to help you develop your emotional intelligence.
