Enneagram Resources for Coaches, Therapists, and Professionals: Workshop 1

Palo Alto, California, USA

Discover practical ways to integrate the Enneagram’s transformative power within your professional practice. This experiential program provides a deep grounding in The Enneagram as a highly effective resource for working with clients.




The Enneagram makes working with clients easier. It is an extremely accurate map to guide and inform our work. It helps us leverage optimal outcomes through minimum effort – on behalf of professional and client alike – because we’re better able to make relevant, incisive, well-focused input that goes to the heart of the matter. And because the Enneagram maps the territory so clearly, we can relax into doing our best work with greater ease and confidence.

Professionals drawing on the Enneagram to benefit their clients include coaches, psychotherapists, consultants, leaders, executives, human resource professionals, organizational development consultants, and health professionals, in secular, corporate, spiritual, and community settings.

The Enneagram can radically improve the quality, potency, and impact of our client work. Conversely, a poor grasp of the Enneagram is at best misleading and often far worse.

We believe that for professionals of integrity keen to work with the Enneagram, training of this quality is not an optional extra – it is essential.


About the Program

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 by providing the most up-to-date information on the component parts of the system, including the centers of intelligence, the types, the instincts, and subtypes, and how to use the wings and arrow-line-connected point as growth strategies.

It will enable you to:

· Attune swiftly and deftly to the heart of what’s needed

· Offer client interventions that are more powerful and potent

· Complete initial client intake, assessment or evaluation sessions more comprehensively, in less time

· 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

Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes lead this course. They draw on their long and varied experiences teaching and deploying the Enneagram over three decades to help participants understand the centers, types, and subtypes at a deep level so that can recognize and understand the motives and drives of different clients. They will provide many ideas and practices you can apply to help the people you work with in powerful and effective ways.
