People are more central to a business’s growth and profitability than structure, strategy or technology. They can also be a lot harder to understand. Deni Tato coaches, trains, reinforces and supports companies and their leaders to adopt more conscious business practices. Consciousness is a higher level of emotional intelligence.
The Enneagram, a personality typing system, is foundational to Deni’s services as an executive coach, corporate trainer and life strategist. A core principle of the Enneagram is that we have three centers of intelligence: head, body, and heart. Her work focuses on building leadership from the heart center by identifying and understanding a person’s core motivation, which is critical to long-term sustainable change in behavior.
Heart-based leaders invest in people emotionally and inspire them. They help their team members understand their personal superpowers and challenges, as well as the people they work with. This creates self- and other-awareness, empathy and positive interdependence among the whole team.
