Named by Fortune Magazine in 2006 as the best company to work for, Genentech is “in business for life,” making pharmaceutical drugs that cure or prevent death in diseases previously thought incurable. It is not a surprise that a conscious organization such as Genentech would embrace the Enneagram. Learn from Genentech’s senior leaders how they are using the Enneagram, why they think it makes a difference, what it has done for them personally, and how it contributes to a conscious organization.

This informal discussion session will allow you to experience in real-time that consciousness, spirituality, and development do belong in the business world and to address questions such as: What organizations are most likely to be early users of the Enneagram? What is the best way to approach these types of organizations? What kinds of leaders will be most responsive? What kinds of trainers and consultants are they looking for?

This session will not be available on CD, so please attend in person if you are interested in the information.
