Creating A New Type Of Corporate Culture
For the advancement of business and workplace dynamics
I’m very glad to have had the pleasure of experiencing Christy’s work. It’s transformative, easily understood and applicable in today’s corporate environment. Our company recently engaged her to facilitate an Enneagram team building workshop for the leadership team which I was a part of. Her ideas and methodology are personal and simplistic enough with logical techniques in between, that it helped all of us to unlock some of those illuminating moments which allowed us to grasp the essentials of her course content. She’s a great facilitator in both group and individual settings. If I ever have another opportunity to work with her, I will seize it!

We recently undertook Christy's Culture Conscious Program as a relatively new Leadership Team, and I can honestly say it was life changing for all involved. We were able to connect more strongly as a Team, breaking down barriers and forming relationships on a much deeper level. Already we are experiencing the benefits, showing a united front to the wider organisation, utlising each other's strength areas learned from the Enneagram to optimise plans, communicating openly and respecting all view points before coming to aligned decisions. A much more collaborative approach than ever before that is already being noticed by our people. I can high recommend for any team building and development work.

We recently engaged Christy and Culture Conscious to help rebuild our leadership team after a period of monumental change management and leadership onboarding. Christy's culture workshop and team building event here in Melbourne was literally life changing for many of our participants. The authenticity and trust the team developed will continue on and reverberated across our Australian organisation.
Melissa, Human Resources at KAO Australia
Christy’s work with our leadership team was exceptional. This is not a game changer, this is a life changer! The concepts presented were able to applied immediately and the positive effects have reverberated through the organisation quickly. We will be sure to continue utilising the Culture Conscious program in getting the best out of ourselves, team and organisation.
Emil, Director of Finance at KAO
I had the pleasure of working with Christy in my current company for a series of team building events. Christy has a rare ability to connect with all members of our team, regardless of level, function or title. Her engaging and fun process with our team was very thorough comprised of 1 on 1 sessions as well as group work. She helps you identity characteristics about yourself and how they unfold in the work environment. You also learn how to embrace them and implement your qualities as well as how to identify areas of sensitivity in times of conflict and stress. In addition, you and your team identify your personality types as well as that of your 1 team. In this process, you learn ways on how to best work together and move your team towards success and harmony. To put it in layman’s terms, she brings humanity and empathy into the work environment. I highly recommend Christy for this type of work with any size organization.

This quote describes Christy and the work she does so perfectly: “The most visible creators are those artists whose medium is life itself. The ones who express the inexpressible - without brush, hammer, clay, or guitar. They neither paint nor sculpt. Their medium is simply being. Whatever their presence touches has increased life. They see, but don't have to draw ... because they are the artists of being alive..." - Donna J. Stone

Christy did an incredible job of bringing the LinkedIn MarketResearch team together and getting us to appreciate our different Enneagram types. She is a truly inspiring person and a joy to spendtime with. I highly recommend working with her.
Tim, Market Research Manager at LinkedIn
We sought out Christy during a difficult time for one of our teams and tasked her with working in an unproven industry for her, testing her Enneagram work in a big way. While she is very skilled in her work, she is also a person that we immediately felt a close connection with, putting us at ease through her gracious, honest and comforting demeanor. While the work we did with Christy will play out over time, the experience had an immediate impact, without question creating value that is enduring. Without question, when we need another session to help make us better, Christy is a person we will turn to to help design the road map.

Christy Kennedy is a fantastic asset to have on your team. She’s an excellent resource as you work through team dynamics and interpersonal relationships. I have had the pleasure of working with Christy for 2 years as she has completed several team building activities for my group through the Enneagram framework. Christy has helped us grow closer and work more effectively together. She has a warm and caring personality, but can also be firm and direct when needed. I really enjoy working with Christy and look forward to the times that our team can interact with her. I highly recommend Christy’s services as I think she can truly change and improve your team dynamic.
Leah, Senior Brand Marketing Manager at KAO
Christy is one of the most empathetic people I have ever met...and she made me feel that way within the first 10 minutes of talking to her. We recently invited Christy to come work with our Market Research team at LinkedIn to help us empathize with each other and recognize the unique way in which we all give and receive at work and in life. We were a high performing team prior to Christy's sessions, we're even stronger and more understanding for having spent time with Christy. A wholehearted recommendation to any organization that wants to become more effective as individuals and as a collective. Thank you Christy!!
Tony, Senior Market Research Manager at LinkedIn
Christy led a powerful Enneagram session with the LinkedIn Market Research team that really brought us together. We spent a full day running through the different types and understanding each other at a deeper level. The differentiator was really Christy herself. Prior to our 1-day session, she spent 1:1 time with every member of the Research team and approached every conversation with empathy. Everyone on the team raved about her! Thank you Christy for being so open with us, so we could be so open with you!
Allison, Head of Consumer Market Research at LinkedIn
Christy has been such a great asset to our teams! We ventured into Enneagram with only our curiosity because we were tired of the "same 'ol" self-evaluation tools (MBTI, Strengthsfinder, etc.), Because of Christy, we've had a consistent path of understanding about the various layers of the Enneagram tools that have allowed us to work together in a more cohesive way. The learnings have been contagious throughout our organization, and now we have a common language to speak. Christy's leadership and understanding of our teams has made a true difference. We continue to ask her "what's next?" as we find more and more ways to apply the learnings.
Lisa, Associate Director at KAO
My team has worked with Christy several times now and each has proven to be amazing! She has done a thorough job of investigating our personality type and pointing out individual strengths and blind spots so that we can more effectively work together as a team. Having conscious awareness of someone's emotional intelligence is so critical in today's work environment and I would highly recommend Christy as someone who can help strengthen this area!
Holly, Associate Brand Manager at KAO
The work we did with Christy has been immeasurable in terms of impact. I couldn’t imagine a better person to be the leader of the framework. She is an expert, which is definitely required to pass along the knowledge but it’s Christy’s kind nature and open-mindedness that builds the power into her unique approach.
Lindsey, Senior Brand Manager at KAO
Christy’s Enneagram training is by far the best, most helpful,relevant, and insightful training I have ever experienced. I haveworked on multiple teams that have benefited from working withChristy. I highly recommend for everyone to work with Christy onthe Enneagram!
Paige, Global Innovation Leader at KAO
Our team at KAO has worked with Christy multiple times over the last couple of years and each time is such a pleasure! Not only is Christy one of the most amazing people I have ever met, she has an incredible gift for working with corporate teams. She has transformed our team dynamic, utilizing enneagram tools to help us better understand ourselves, but also the motivations of the people we work closely with day in and day out. She has helped us establish better communication and provide tools to continually approve. The sessions with Christy are unlike any corporate training I have attended. They have created a lasting effect that its starting to trickle throughout the culture of our company. Additionally, it has awesome to see the evolution of this tool from our initial training. We have now also taken the learnings from the enneagram and applied them to how we manage change within our organization and become more agile. Overall, Christy and her work have been a blessing to our work environment. There is a collective excitement across our entire team when we get to work with Christy!
Jill, Brand Manager at KAO
Through Christy’s expertise and passion, the Enneagram has become a ‘movement’ within our organization. It was been the key tool in identifying and understanding individual motivations that can build us to a stronger, more productive team. It has empowered us to build more empathy and compassion towards one another as we strive to take the business to new heights. The level of Christy’s insight is extraordinary – and delivered in an incredibly safe and trusting environment where each person’s uniqueness is respected and valued in creating a most productive team. Christy will be one of the most wonderful people you will ever meet!
Karen, Global Strategy & Innovation at KAO
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Christy multiple times at my company learning about the Enneagram tool. Not only did I learn so much about myself, but I learned about my team members and how to communicate to have better relationships. Christy’s compassion, curiosity, and kindness make her the perfect person to lead this work—she is an expert on empathy and knows the importance of emotional intelligence in the work place (especially for leadership). If you get the opportunity to work Christy—just do it! She is incredible!
Allison, Innovation Leader at KAO
Our company was introduced to Christy over a year ago, when my team went through her Enneagram training. Seemingly overnight, Christy’s program took hold and was quickly woven into the fabric of our company culture. Every time I turned, it seemed that another team at the company was embarking on their Enneagram journey with Christy. Even just walking through the halls, I would hear groups of coworkers chatting about their Enneagram personality type, while also guessing or confirming the types of others. However, beyond just receiving our type, Christy led us even deeper with individual and team workshops to understand the core motivations of each type. It was a powerful, transformational process of self-discovery. As a result, our team is now able to understand each other on a deeper level, and we work together more effectively and harmoniously because of it. None of this would have been possible without Christy. She is a deeply genuine, compassionate, and devoted leader, who cares for the whole person. I highly recommend her for any projects or programs within marketing, insights or multifunctional teams. Her strategic insight, paired with a bright smile, will truly inspire team unity and success for years to come.
Kathleen, Brand Manager, Proctor & Gamble
I had the good fortune of meeting Christy during a Team Building Exercise. She administered the Enneagram Test for our team, did individual work with each of us and facilitated several sessions with our team. She created a safe environment for us all to share with the goals of working together better as a team and learning to communicate more effectively with each other and all our internal customers. She has a keen ability to tap into our respective strengths and opportunities. We have become a better team and more empathetic individuals. The process is awesome and one of the best team building exercises I have done in my career. I highly recommend everyone tries it.
