Facilitation

ideal for work teams & Companies

Work environments often attract and incentivize one communication style: the leader’s. Their tendencies become the default, and other team members (try to) fall in line. With a stronger understanding of each team member’s style, how to harness their strengths, and how to meet their needs, we can ensure everyone feels valued. And as a not-unimportant side effect, you’ll get way better performance from them, too.

Frequently Asked Questions

No one really teaches us how to talk with one another—at least, not in a way that leads to real understanding. So we all end up communicating in a way that makes sense, first and foremost, to ourselves. That works with people who think like we do, but leaves us frustrated and stuck with others.

So that’s where we all start: entrenched in our own style, with a few blind spots, not sure how to overcome the obstacles we run into with certain folks.

I help you thoughtfully examine your own style and learn to adapt to communicate effectively with all the different people in your life—from the people you live with to the people you work with. I call this skillset Communication Intelligence™. Communication intelligence is your understanding of (and ability to adjust your approach to) five key aspects of communication: pace, risk orientation, conflict style, detail needs, and adaptability.

To figure out Why we show up the way we do, we introduce you to the tool of the Enneagram. The Enneagram is a tool 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. Unlike other tools, the Enneagram does not put you in a box, but rather helps you know which box you are in and find your way out.

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.

If your organization involves people who work with other people, then the Enneagram will work for you. The Enneagram is a highly intuitive and actionable tool for communicating within teams. It starts when you realize “company culture” is actually just how you communicate (and the norms and the environment you create for others to communicate in). It sounds like an intangible thing, but it’s not—everyone in the room can feel it!

Each coaching engagement and workshop is customized to your needs. Reach out and let’s explore.

Yes. Nicole works with all corporate leaders and teams.
We customize each coaching and training experience for any size group ranging from from 5 to 500. Just let us know what you need, and we will create the experience for maximum impact and engagement.
You’ll approach communication and collaboration in a new way, with a new set of tools. You’ll immediately take this perspective and put it into action, strengthening your relationships at work and throughout your life. Once you start thinking about communication this way, the only thing you WON’T be able to do is go back to doing what you were doing before—it’s one of those things you can’t unsee.

A coach is more akin to a mentor or a guide, emphasizing personal and professional development through a process of self-discovery and skill enhancement.

By contrast, a consultant adopts an analytical and problem-solving approach, providing expert advice and solutions to specific challenges their client is encountering.

The coaching process tends to be learner-centric while consultants are typically engaged for their expertise in a particular field and project. Coaches create a safe and supportive space for their clients to explore challenges, set goals, and take action.

Consultants utilize in-depth specialized expertise combined with analytical skills and problem-solving abilities. They’re hired to diagnose problems, develop strategies, and implement solutions that deliver tangible results.

We provide primarily coaching but can combine consulting with coaching after initial assessments provide more clarity.

Consider a Consultant when you need:

  • Specific expertise
  • Problem-solving and decision-making
  • Training and skill development
  • Competitive differentiation
  • Strategic innovation

Consider a coach when the objective is:

  • Personal development and growth
  • Building confidence and resilience
  • Goal setting and accountability
  • Improving interpersonal skills
  • Leadership development
