This program is for therapists, counselors, spiritual directors, coaches, nurses, caregivers and managers of teams — anyone who is in a professional one-on-one relationship with others. The Enneagram can be a useful interpreter of people, showing how we need best respond to others in order to have successful and satisfying relationships. Using research with their own clients, colleagues and students, Kathy and Theodorre present their collected insights on how to deal with people of each type.
This program on re-visioning professional relationships is presented in two parts; each part stands on its own and is complemented by the other. Part 1 covers building trust. How do you build trust with exemplars of each of the personality styles? How can you speak in a language the other person will hear best? How can you most quickly and easily demonstrate you are tracking with the person? This presentation ends with some comments on personality disorders as they relate to Enneagram types. Professionals working one-on-one, especially if they are not trained in psychology, can benefit from these particular insights needed when dealing with personality disorders.
This program on re-visioning professional relationships is presented in two parts; each part stands on its own and is complemented by the other. Part 2 covers issues of follow- through. What issues will need to be dealt with as the relationship grows? How do you facilitate the relationship in a supportive and effective way? Also covered is the effect of your personality style on the relationship — the strengths and potential obstacles professionals of each personality style bring to the relationship. What do exemplars of each personality style naturally do well? What issues will they need to watch for in relationships?
