I had never participated in a Myers-Briggs assessment before and working with Deene opened many surprising doors to understand better my own leadership and strategic preferences, strengths and contradictions.
Deene's ability to engage fully with my goals and challenges, all the while providing me with expert resources to dig deeper into how to use my new understanding to improve team dynamics and individual creativity and productivity, was quite impressive. Moreover, I found participating in this process also shed light on many personal and family dynamics of which I had not be fully aware. Deene is a gifted and dynamic change agent and it is pleasure to highly recommend her.

Our team development retreat was a great success, and we accomplished more than I could have imagined. People gained a much deeper understanding of both their natural talents as well as their stressors from this staff workshop. There continue to be permanent good results in our daily life of working together as a team. Communication, cooperation and understanding continues to be better with our team. Deene led an excellent workshop and I would highly recommend her to lead a team building retreat.

Group think values unanimous agreement over problem solving and debate. Not surprisingly, group think underlies poor decisions and performance. Team think welcomes collective exploration and dialogue. Problems are thoroughly and energetically examined by everyone who is part of the problem or solution. Deene Morris, M.A., founder/principal of Inspire Leadership Today, is a recognized catalyst for transforming group think to team think. As a gifted facilitator, she helps individuals and teams get unstuck—moving beyond obstacles to achieve their greater potential. By enhancing communication and self-awareness, Deene helps people identify problems, take risks, collaborate and implement innovative solutions - translating to increased revenue, productivity and overall organizational well being.
Transform Conflict to Creativity and Resistance to Resiliency
Deene will identify and safely address conflict as the opportunity to build trust, instill creativity, and propel growth.

Integrating concrete tools and experiential learning, Deene facilitates positive change and an energized culture.
