Results & Impact
What Clients Have Said
"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…"

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!

“We brought Nicole in to educate a handful of teams on communication styles, enneagram and how to more effectively partner with one another. Feedback across those teams was extremely positive; we saw a positive impact immediately in how people were approaching their work communication. The results were evident enough that the portion of employees who had not gone through sessions with Nicole clamored for an opportunity to do so (and we plan to bring her back to work with them).”
Blake Rice, General Counsel, ArrowMark Partners

At the Zen of Slow Cooking, we have used the Enneagram to strengthen our team. Nicole’s expertise with this tool has helped me become a more effective leader which has led to a more vibrant corporate culture. I also enjoy her positive outlook on life and appreciate her unique ability to make everyone in the room feel valued. Her approach has allowed them to receive the learnings for their self growth and optimization of team goals.

Nicole led an incredibly informative session with our team. Her knowledge of personality types and communication is uncanny, and she has created a truly effective educational experience. Engaging, interesting and fun, we all left the course feeling better equipped to interact with those around us. So helpful!

Our family Enneagram session with Nicole was illuminating into how each of our family of five (3 teenage boys!) operate, both separately and together. The framing of each Enneagram type and talking it through as a group, not only shed new light on our similarities and differences (how we perceive the same situation differently), but also – from a practical standpoint – helped us create an “instruction manual” for each of us, so that we can more effectively connect, and feel seen, heard, and “felt”. We are grateful for Nicole's expertise and wisdom!

I have personally witnessed her shift a group of leaders from disjointed, individual aspirations to connected, action-based goals that better serve all.
