Our Process - Conscious Dynamics
Our focus is on increasing the overall emotional and social intelligence of individuals and teams.
We begin with a personal interview to determine the individual’s Enneagram Type.
Through hands on experiential activities, individuals will come to deeply understand their Enneagram type. They will identify the motivations, strengths, and challenges of each type and learn how to leverage their strengths, making a contribution to the greater good of the team.
Team member’s skills will expand in the area of:
• Transparent communication
• Effective feedback
• Conflict resolution
• Effective electronic communication
• Collective Leadership Training
1:1 Executive Coaching for selected individuals is an important component of the work in Tier One.
In Tier Two we shift organizations from being profit-driven to values-driven, through a deep transformation that can encompass the entire organization.
Values motivate our actions and behaviors. When people find meaning in their work, they naturally tap into deep levels of creativity and productivity. We have tools to help assess, measure and manage your values.
This training is based on the Seven Levels of Corporate Consciousness to support
• Cultural Capital
• Strengthen human resource capacity
• Develop values-based leadership
These are the factors that will determine success or failure as we adapt to an ever-changing business environment, and are required if you want to move your business to the next evolutionary level.
Conscious Dynamics, LLC helps create bold companies one person at a time through training, consulting and team building.
Through hands-on experiential activities, individuals on any team will be able to identify the core type that is used to present challenges and assets. When individuals know the type that drives them there is greater clarity about how to shift the patterns of this type for greater team cohesiveness and individual growth. By identifying these roadblocks and gifts, individuals will be able to learn new skills that will enable them to be more empowered, productive and confident.
Key concepts of the training include:
- Effective Feedback
- Conflict Resolution
Training can be done in Half Day, Whole Day or Weekend Retreat formats and is tailored to meet the needs of your team. Experienced certified Enneagram trainers will conduct your training in an open, inviting environment, conducive to the exploration of bold new ways of thinking and working.

Master Enneagram Emersion
Master Enneagram Emersion is an in-depth and intensive practicum that will give you the ability to broadly apply the wisdom of the Enneagram system in both your personal and professional life.
Through this training:
- Gain deeper self awareness

This training takes place in a very small and intimate group setting of 8 people or less, who are personally chosen to create the most dynamic group. Trainings are customized to focus on the individual experience of the members and their needs for personal application of the work to their life.
Although many participate to enhance their own personal or spiritual development, most want to apply it to their business. We have participants from large and small corporations business coaches, HR personnel, teachers, therapists, counselors, social workers, and entrepreneurs. Master Enneagram Emersion is 4 full days, held one day a week for 4 weeks. This format allows time for processing and application of the material learned throughout the training, which is imperative to the overall process. Since the groups are small, we are able to customize the schedule when needed. Cost is $2000.00 inclusive of food and beverage.

"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 Ph.D. 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, LLC 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, LLC 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, LLC 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."
