Speaker:  R. Karl Hebenstreit, Ph.D.

ICF: 1.5 hours (Core Competency)
BCC: 1.5 hours

Learn your individual coaching style to address deeper transformational needs of your clients, and discover how to use one of the most rapidly growing public domain typing systems for instant acceptance and application. If you’ve experienced costly certification tools that your clients don’t care about or use, then your search is over.  This system is being used worldwide in large and small organizations including the US government leadership coaching.



Available FREE to Members (a $92 value)

In this interactive session you will gain a working knowledge of the Enneagram and learn how to use it to adapt your coaching style for greater self awareness and coaching presence, and introduce it to your clients for instant acceptance and application. You will identify the implications of each Enneagram’s style on ethics, the establishment of agreements, challenges to keeping on task, the importance of focusing on trust-building and intimacy for some types more than others, the challenges of each type to being present, and practicing active listening, powerful questions designed to access, incorporate, and stimulate under-developed functions, relationship to communication styles and influence strategies, and how the Enneagram can provide insights to developing meaningful awareness, goals, accountability, and drive actions in your clients.

You will also brainstorm ways of applying this model to organizational challenges, while seeing how the system correlates to and complements existing seminal models like MBTI, DiSC, Hogan, TKI, Kepner-Tregoe, etc.  To optimize your experience with the Enneagram and how it would work in a client engagement, participants will take the Integrative9 Enneagram test and receive their complimentary 42-page personal report (a $92 value!) for free at this session.
