This is the basis for the partnerships with each of the members of the Energizing Enterprises team – a profound belief in people and their potential.

By transforming the energy involved in negativity, self-sabotaging behaviors and conflict, into self-awareness and an unquenchable desire for self-mastery, Kimi and her team engage and energize work teams to partner for the organization’s long-term success. The talented facilitators of the Energizing Enterprises team lead workshops in the following focus areas:

Professional Growth and Support

Kimi offers a customized approach, taking into account your concerns, priorities, professional partnerships and current environment. Work on specific situations you are experiencing, while building the overall skill sets you are pursuing.
