Love the Enneagram? Love it enough to want to learn to be an Enneagram Coach?
Whether you are new to this powerful personality typing system or a veteran, the Enneagram can be complex and confusing, or enlightening and empowering.
I train Enneagram Coaches and trainers. So what you get from me is an uncluttered narrative approach, where we go beyond the surface levels of the 9 types, to unblock the inner obstacles we each have to wisdom.
Every type has a programmed default set of inner obstacles. Once we know this, we can use the knowledge to map our growth and claim our wholeness. This is the true gift that Enneagram coaching has to offer, when it is used in this way.
I love showing people how the Enneagram doesn’t put us in boxes, but shows us the box we’re already in… and most importantly, shows us a map for growth to get free of the personality box.
So whether you are just browsing the Enneagram for yourself, or considering become an Enneagram coach, enjoy these teachings.
The Enneagram doesn’t have to be confusing, and it can serve others to grow.
What’s keeping you from your wisdom?
Have you noticed that even when we desperately want to find our inner wisdom, and even when we have natural intuitive skills, that sometimes inner obstacles seem to block us?
Learning to be an Enneagram Coach for yourself and others can be a great gift.
Our inner obstacles are like the rocks that we have to break through when building our wisdom well, in order to reach the clear waters of our wisdom.
The Enneagram personality system, is an accurate and helpful map, showing us exactly what kinds of inner obstacles we’re most likely to have, and showing us how to break through these inner obstacles.
Enneagram Coach Skills can serve our ego or wisdom
We can use the Enneagram coaching skills and knowledge to serve our egos, or we can use the Enneagram to serve wisdom.
Use the Enneagram map for growth to claim our wholeness, to break through inner obstacles and to find inner wisdom.
That is why I developed InnerLifeSkills Enneagram coach training, where my team of trainers and I meet students from around the world once a week, online to teach them how to offer professional Enneagram coaching.
Some join for their own personal enrichment, others joined so that they can be certified as Enneagram Coaches, even offer professional Enneagram typing sessions with confidence and competence.
To learn to coach the Enneagram, whether for your personal growth or as a career boosting path, here are a few important guidelines:
- Strongly consider learning a narrative coaching approach rather than relying on unreliable 50-60% accurate tests.
- Don’t make the mistake of trying to learn the Enneagram as a long complex and sometimes contradictory list of behaviors per type – learn what I call the 3 Personality Pearls first as a solid foundation.
- Use the Enneagram for MORE than typing. It’s real power is the map for growth embedded in the Enneagram. So coach the Enneagram to empower and enlighten, rather than offering cold tests, then help someone to claim their wholeness with the map that the Enneagram offers.
