"Thank you for bringing Deb and The Enneagram Program to me. I am extremely excited and hopeful about reinventing my agency and taking my agency to a new level with a more conscious and self-aware frame of mind! Thank you a million times….one of the best trainings I have participated in, in my almost 20 years with this company."


 

"Dr. Ooten provided group counseling to ~30 Toyota Production Engineers after the death of our Enneagram coach in 2009. I was so impressed with Dr. Ooten’s initial results with a group of grieving team members that I immediately retained her services.

Dr. Ooten’s team began working with my team of 12 model change leaders across all the North American plants. These Chief Production Engineers are the “one voice” of manufacturing in vehicle styling, design and development, evaluation, manufacturability, trials, and mass production. Several workshops and one-on-one sessions increased each leader’s self-awareness. Conflict resolution, change management, communication, motivation and innovation all measurably improved. My team was recognized for their leadership and were promoted ahead of their peers.

Personally, I also felt the change in myself over the initial months working with Dr. Ooten. My interest increased continuously, leading to 4 years of Enneagram Emersion and Consciousness Ascending quarterly sessions. My partner also saw the changes in me and signed up for the next Enneagram Emersion series and remains in Consciousness Ascending quarterly sessions.

The work on me was essential preparation leading Production Engineering’s transition of 4 companies into One Toyota North America into 3 headquarters locations since April 2014. Our cross-function change management team has succeeded in retaining our top talent through this culture change.

In addition, Dr. Ooten recently held a workshop and one-on-one sessions with my remote, self-managed Toyota Partner Robot team in San Jose, CA. Her insights into the team of PhD researchers made important discoveries and catalyzed immediate positive changes for the team.

I thank Dr. Ooten for my teams’ journey from sleep to self-awareness and effective leadership that has increased our self-reliance from Japan faster than anyone expected."

"Deborah Ooten and Conscious Dynamics had a profound impact on two different global teams that I led for Procter & Gamble. First she worked with our global laundry detergents franchise team and then with P&G’s Future of Marketing team. Over a 5-6 year period, I engaged Dr. Ooten to work with each of these teams via monthly workshops and executive coaching for all team members. It led to both greater personal success for each of the team members and greater cohesiveness of the team. I could not recommend Deborah Ooten and Conscious Dynamics strongly enough. She is a masterful change agent and personal advisor. She has made a profound difference in my professional success and in my life."

 "Many thanks for the outstanding exercise you and your colleagues demonstrated at our Dean's Executive Council Retreat.  I recognize that we were a challenging audience, yet you remained professional and gracious in answering our questions and keeping the group focused.  I found the material very helpful.

I continue to get positive feedback from my team, which demonstrates the usefulness of your presentation.  Thanks again for the role you played in making this a successful event."

"The Enneagram training we received through Conscious Dynamics has yielded a large return on our investment!  It is so important for co-workers to understand how each other work --- the how's and why's rather than just the deadlines and daily routines.  Being able to grasp the "why" behind the action has helped us understand "how" the other person operates.  This has been a fabulous tool that we all apply, not only to each other, but also in our interactions with clients." 

The team building exercises involved in the training were exactly what we needed to strengthen the group dynamic. Trust and support are often overlooked in an office setting. We were challenged during the training to be open and honest which has lent itself to building the foundation of trust and support that is neccessary. The training helped us to see just how important these elements are, especially in such a small office as ours!

As the president and CEO of the company, I could not be more pleased about the results of this invaluable training. This experience and learning has helped us bridge gaps that were previously serving as barriers to our full success. When there are gaps of trust, support, cooperation, and understanding, the team is not operating at its full capacity. Being from the business world, I know that this means lack of productivity and efficiency as well. We are truly a well-oiled machine these days.

Our hats are off to you and your team. Thank you again for all that you have done to help grow us as individuals and as a team."
