Instincts and Subtypes workshops

Our Instincts and Subtypes trainings will expose you to a whole new level of the Enneagram system!

 

Each of the 27 subtype characters represents a distinct personality that results from the dynamic mixture of the central passion and patterns of the type (one of nine) and one of three biological survival drives, for either self-preservation, social relationships, or one-to-one bonding.

 

The three versions of each of the nine personality types haven’t been very well clarified until recently. These workshops present the latest and best information about the subtypes and how to use them to grow. This workshop will change everything you think you know about the Enneagram.

The Enneagram as a Psychological Growth Map

How do you know if you are really using the Enneagram to grow? We will discuss all the psychological work you need to grow up, including

 

  • teaching people how to say please and thank you
  • to own traits and blind spots that they need to own
  • manage reactivity
  • feel feelings without acting them out (!)
  • basic interpersonal psychological skills
  • the most important indicators of psychological maturity
  • with opportunities for practice, experiential rehearsal

The Way of the Arrows

This two-day workshop offers a deep experience of one of the key ways the Enneagram map can be used for transforming unconscious habits so that you can manifest your highest potentials.

 

Through providing a cognitive, emotional, and somatic understanding of the movement along the arrow lines for each of the nine types, participants will gain a deep sense of how to utilize these movements for personal growth.

Business Development

Offerings for organization, team, and leadership development

Organizations rely on people to make things happen. Research shows that an individual’s emotional intelligence (EQ) is the key to workplace success. I specialize in using the Enneagram system of personality types to enhance the self-awareness and emotional intelligence of both leaders and employees.

 

I help develop individuals, teams, and organizations so that they can achieve their maximum level of growth, engagement, and effectiveness. Building in ways for people to grow and expand within the organization leads to healthier people, more cohesive teams, and a positive culture within the organization, which all make for a more rewarding work experience and a more successful enterprise.

Leadership Development/Executive coaching

Individual one-on-one coaching: Working collaboratively with an experienced coach provides a unique opportunity for leaders to increase self-awareness, build on strengths, and identify and address patterns of behavior that may create obstacles to growth and success.

 

We offer coaching that helps individuals recognize and remove barriers that block their ability to be effective leaders. We support leaders in enhancing their ability to lead others from a place of integrity, honesty, and a deep ground of self-knowledge.

 

Ultimately, the intention of this work is to bring awareness, purpose, and meaning to the lives of individuals—and to grow the great leaders we need in the world today.

Enneagram trainings for leaders and teams

We offer half-day and full-day introductions to the Enneagram for intact teams and groups of leaders interested in developing themselves. We can also design ongoing programs in which we provide quarterly trainings to make sure the Enneagram’s insights stick and get put to work to support the positive development of leaders and teams.

 

We help team members find their correct types and learn how to use the language of the Enneagram to communicate more effectively. By creating mutual understanding and empathy for different perspectives, the Enneagram is an unmatched tool in helping leaders and teams work together seamlessly, through developing the capacity to offer real-time feedback, manage conflict, so perform at a high level, even under times of stress.

Team Coaching

Teams can be high-performing assets to an organization, but a dysfunctional team can represent a major barrier to the forward momentum of your business. Training in self-awareness and emotional intelligence followed by real-time coaching support for teams allow them to enhance their ability to work through conflicts, manage work more effectively, and increase job satisfaction.
