Take your team to the next level by building on your team’s strengths, and meeting them where the challenges lie. Choose from our most requested workshops to help your team thrive in today’s complex hybrid environment–or request your very own.
Knowing yourself is one of the basic commandments of living a happy and robust life. But the elusive job of self-knowledge is often left to indiscriminate self-help books or lengthy therapies. Even when we can commit to the process, we’re met with the double whammy of a culture that champions distraction and busy-ness to keep us spinning in turmoil. It's far from the calm and considered self-knowledge we crave. We want deeper knowing—both of ourselves and those we work closely with—but we’re afraid of what we’ll discover and don’t always know what to do with it.
The Enneagram is a system for deepening your self-knowledge and building empathy for others. It helps you understand your personality structure, while bringing to light unconscious blindspots and a personalized pathway for growth.
And the data is clear — there is a significant return on investment for organizations that commit to building on the emotional intelligence of their people. Our workshops for teams are designed from the latest research, focusing on a set of emotional skills that are most critical to high-performing teams. Through candor, personal reflection, meaningful conversation, and experiential exercises, we bring the research to life so you can accomplish big goals with your team’s wellbeing intact.
Learn about yourself and those around you through a clear, psychologically-based, workshop training. For large and small organizations we offer two-hour, half-day, and full day workshops.
In-person or on video, we show up for you and your team with compassion, clarity, and guidance.
The Two-Hour Special: If you know you’re tight on time and money, but also recognize that your team could use something to enhance their overall performance and communication, a two-hour training is a great place to start.
Our two-hour trainings pack a punch. We include 5 free copies of Shock Point: The Enneagram in Burnout and Stress, as well as 48-page workbooks for everyone–no matter how big the group. If the team is able to invest in an Enneagram Compass Test for each team member, we create a team map and come in ready for engagement and interaction. We also provide copies of Shock Point at a discount for group purchases of just 10 or more. The training and materials we provide in just two hours gives you and your team resources and activities to work on for weeks and months ahead.
The Half-Day/Four-Hour Mojo: These trainings are perfect for groups with full-day agendas who want a deep dive into a focused workshop objective, but who also need flexibility with the rest of the one day they may have.
Our half-day trainings offer everything you get in a two-hour, and then we’re able to take the learning and apply it. We can go deep on a single objective for all four hours, or we start wide-angle for the first half and bring in a single point of focus for the second half.
The Complete Day Experience: Give us a call to discuss your needs and we'll get to work on developing a plan.
I am an Educational Psychologist (Ed.D.), Licensed Professional Counselor with a Mental Health Service Provider designation (TN #1835), angel investor, TEDx speaker, and workshop facilitator.
In 2010, I left my clinical practice and went to work as an internal service provider for a venture capital firm. I served as the Director of Happiness and resident shrink for four years before starting my own hardware technology company. In 2018, after recovering from deep burnout, I felt a strong call to integrate my experience and passions in psychology, business, and leadership development to eliminate burnout and help others recover from it. This led to the creation of Big Self School.
I am a certified Enneagram practitioner through the Chestnut-Paes Enneagram Academy and am committed to integrating the Enneagram into my coaching and my own personal development. The Enneagram is a personality system that reveals our drives, motivations, mental traps, blindspots, and growth paths for lasting psychological and spiritual growth.
After receiving my Masters of Divinity three years out of college, I went on to get an M.A. in Literature, and a Ph.D. in Creative Writing. That led to a decade of teaching at universities and colleges in writing and literature. Since then, I have worked as a solopreneur in publishing, a freelance writer for various trades, and as a reporter, analyst, and broadcast specialist for a logistics startup. Throughout these experiences, I always wanted to get back to my early call to use my learning and skills in service to others. I’ve come out the other side as an Executive Coach. My latest book is an investigation and practical application into the Enneagram called, Shock Point: The Enneagram in Burnout and Stress.
I am a certified professional Enneagram practitioner with the Chestnut-Paes Enneagram Academy, as well as a trainer and teacher from Jerome Wagner’s Enneagram Spectrum Certification program, and have also trained with Ginger Lapid-Bogda. I am currently enrolled in the Newfield Network coaching certification program, the first program ever to be certified by the ICF (International Coaching Federation).
