Developing Powerful Enneagram Skills (formerly workshop 1)

Elks Club, Palo Alto, California, USA (30 miles south of San Francisco)

Co-teachers: Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes

This highly experiential and interactive program provides a deep grounding in The Enneagram as an extraordinarily effective and inspiring client resource. It will equip you to make well-informed, skillful use of the Enneagram in your professional work with clients.

This workshop will enable you to:

  • Attune swiftly and deftly to the heart of what’s needed
  • Take into account a client’s center of intelligence, core type, subtype, and instinct sequence when evaluating client issues and tailoring approaches
  • Offer client interventions that are more powerful and potent
  • Design client programs more fully connected to individuals core motivation and deepest needs
  • Define purpose and outcome statements aligned and shaped by clients’ greatest gifts and highest potential
  • Create client practices and programs more clearly fitted to what’s possible, achievable and most impactful
  • Optimize the contact time you have with clients
  • Learn to apply the latest and most complete information about the specific patterns associated with the 27 subtypes and the 3 instincts

Beatrice and Uranio will draw on their long and varied experiences teaching and deploying the Enneagram over three decades in different professional settings to help participants understand the centers, types, and subtypes at a deep level. This will enable them to recognize and understand the motives and drives of different clients more easily and allow them to use it with more confidence and skill. They will provide many ideas and practices you can apply to help the people you work with in powerful and effective ways.


This outstanding  course is a must for coaches who are serious about using the Enneagram with their clients.  Bea and Uranio provide wise and actionable insight into how coaches can best work with the head, body and heart types.  Their deep knowledge and skill come through in every morsel of this training.  If you are committed to coaching your clients through change and you use the Enneagram (as background or foreground), this is the program for you.
