35+ Years of Teaching and Counseling

Team Building for Organizations

Herb has worked with many organizations to improve team communication, which always improves team efficiency. Typically Herb does a half-day to full-day training using the Enneagram or Myers-Briggs to improve communication and productivity within your organization. Here are some things you'll experience:

  • Reduce stress and confusion by understanding personality differences
  • Improve productivity with more effective communication
  • Build confidence in knowing how to communicate well to each type
  • Individualized professional development
  • Ensure everyone's personality on the team is valued and utilized well
  • Enhance self-esteem, a win-win environment, more efficient work and more harmony in the workplace

Herb will use the Enneagram or Myers-Briggs personality tools to:


  • Identify personality type in a clear and understandable way
  • Teach professional and self development tools unique to everyone's type
  • Develop communication strategies that work effectively with each type
  • Evaluate your team in terms of type differentiation, strengths, weaknesses, utilization of types in group
  • Help your team develop good conflict resolution skills
  • Support strengths of each type

Herb's style is entertaining, fun, energetic, yet very direct. A longer training (5 to 8 hours) will dig deeper to resolve more specific personality issues and problems regarding team goals and efficiency. It can be a full day workshop or held as two half day sessions. Herb encourages a follow-up conversation to reinforce awareness and skills learned, give feedback, and provide more personal and fine-tuned leadership development and communication skills.

Herb can also give shorter presentations. He's happy to talk or meet in advance to explore options for your setting.
