Join Tom for a five-day training and apply the diagnostic power of the Enneagram to transform yourself and others.
Come experience an in-depth perspective on the Enneagram as a dynamic active system. The goal of this training is to produce lasting, positive change in your clients and yourself. The focus will be on building skills, giving you specific insights, tools and practices to use effectively in your personal and professional life.
The training will establish the Enneagram as a solid guide to meaningful change and personal evolution by merging it with other powerful disciplines. If you already have Enneagram, NLP or Ericksonian training, these five days will deepen your understanding of all three subjects.
Tom will help you use the Enneagram to powerfully evoke innate strengths as well as move quickly and directly to the core of a problem. You will approach the low side expressions of someone’s Enneagram style as a set of defenses – a self-created subjective reality – and the high side as an array of resources and talents existing naturally within each individual.
You will also explore the adaptive advantages of personality styles, understanding them as unconscious strategies for ordering reality that serve a variety of useful purposes. The training will reveal how someone’s most dysfunctional, defensive expression of their Enneagram style makes perfect sense when you start to understand what it is designed for.
The training will weave together lecture, exercises, and demonstrations of changework with group experiences to create a rich tapestry of insights and applications. You will also receive extensive handouts, as well as video and audio support materials.
Tom will demonstrate a number of methods most helpful to different Enneagram styles, but since the best way to learn to do changework is to experience it yourself, there will be many opportunities to be both client and coach. You are encouraged to bring one personal goal to fulfill by the end of the training.
This five-day training is open to anyone with prior knowledge of the Enneagram and a desire to change themselves and help others. It will most benefit participants who have already applied the Enneagram personally or professionally.
Topics will include:
- The sensory strategies and subjective qualities of each style
- Enneagram growth arcs: How each style typically grows and changes
- The secondary gains of Enneagram defenses – why we cling to old patterns
- What motivates each Enneagram style to change
- Techniques for establishing rapport with different styles
- The 27 Instinctual Subtypes: their motivations, talents and advantages
- The Five Elements of Change: A model of changework as applied to the Enneagram
- Feel Good, Feel Bad and Feel Nothing defense mechanisms
- Enneagram “resource maps” – Identifying and maximizing the built-in strengths, talents, resources of each Enneagram style, connecting points and Subtypes
- Parental Points – the influence of inherited Enneagram styles
- Body reading and nonverbal cues
- Developing sensitivity as a practitioner and communicator
- Working effectively with critical voices
- Using humor, metaphor and therapeutic stories
