When we “break out of the box,” we see something in a radically new light or behave in a totally different way. But breaking free of life-long patterns can be difficult. Sometimes in coaching others we only help them get better at what they’ve always done. Whether you are a professional coach, consultant, counselor, teacher, minister, manager, or “just a friend” to whom people come for help, you will learn principles and practices that move people beyond first-order change (doing something better without examining their Enneagram “boxes”) to second-order or transformational change (stepping “out of the box”).

Mary Bast, Ph.D. has been a personal and business coach for more than 20 years. Her quarterly telephone class with Clarence Thomson is based on their book, Out of The Box: Coaching with The Enneagram, available at the conference bookstore. Mary can be reached ator coach@ breakoutofthebox.com.
