Identifying behaviors that need to be changed is easy; overcoming resistance to that change is not. This highly interactive program will explore how the inner triangle of the Enneagram can be used to help change take root.

The program will discuss: The neurological patterns that lead to habitual behavior, the processes involved in reversing those patterns, and how those patterns track to the dynamics of the inner triangle of the Enneagram; Typical performance derailers for each of the personality types and how these behaviors can be overcome; and how coaches and mentors can use this information in their work with others.

This program is an outgrowth of the presenter’s experience in coaching over 200 executives in Fortune 500 companies since 1998. It will cover many of the ideas in the presenter’s book, Awareness to Action: The Enneagram, Emotional Intelligence, and Change, and in his “Notes and the Melody” series of articles from The Enneagram Monthly.

Mario Sikora is president of Mario Sikora & Company and co-author of Awareness to Action: The Enneagram, Emotional Intelligence, and Change, University of Scranton Press, and developer of the SikoraSPITM, the first psychometrically validated Ennea-type and instinct assessment.
