Learn how to Lead a Transformative Team in the Hybrid Work World

Toxic Teams try to keep track of remote workers by adding more meetings.


Transactional teams try to keep track of each other on email.


Transformational teams track themselves against clear goals, outcomes, and accountability.


Transformative Leaders see the importance of what’s not being said, search for what’s hidden below the surface until people say, “Exactly!”

Not a One Size Fits All Solution

Nicole is an absolute communication effectiveness expert!  She utilizes the Enneagram framework to help individuals and teams learn to better understand themselves, how to work more effectively with each other, and how to increase  overall engagement!  Nicole led a two-day workshop for our team of ~50 (1/2 on person- 1/2 virtually).  The reviews from the team have been absolutely stellar - having participated in prior Enneagram workshops, Nicole is the only expert I would call upon in the future. We’ve already begun referencing what we’ve learned in her workshop, leading to much deeper empathy, trust, and camaraderie. We plan to engage with her on an ongoing basis!

Nicole facilitated a session with a group of hard charging female professionals – and WOW!! I have been working with the Enneagram for many years now, and this took it to the next level. I learned equally about the others and how to relate to their types as I did about my own type. She created an environment where everyone felt comfortable sharing very personal anecdotes. I am a 3, and even though many of the women in the group it seemed were also 3’s, there was such variety and nuance among all of us – that was eye opening and speaks to the fluidity of the Enneagram!! My only complaint was ending the session wanting more time…

Communicate More Effectively with Enneagram.

The Enneagram is a tool that is based on the idea that each person has a unique and innate personality structure, or "essence," that shapes the way they see and act in the world. There are nine archetypes each representing a combination of unconscious motivations, superpowers, challenges, fears and triggers that shape their thoughts, feelings, and actions. It can help individuals understand their own motivations and behavior, as well as the motivations and behavior of other key people in their lives which can lead to more enjoyable relationships, effective communication, and optimal problem-solving.
