By combining the Riso-Hudson Enneagram’s ability to illuminate the deeper patterns of human nature with Integral Coaching’s methodology for fostering human development, coaches can provide pragmatic and holistic coaching programs that almost always accelerate the process of growth for the client, as well as assuring the coach that they are on a productive track.

In this session, Don Riso and Russ Hudson of The Enneagram Institute will be joined by James Flaherty of New Ventures West Integral Coaching and certified Integral Coach Karen Jacke to discuss the theory and practice of coaching with the Enneagram.

In the first half of the session, Don Riso, Russ Hudson, and James Flaherty will first focus on the theoretical underpinnings of Integral Coaching and its synergy with the Enneagram based on insights learned from their extensive work over the last year.

Next they will emphasize how the professional coach can meet the challenge to continuously model, encourage, and elicit Presence and acceptance in the client, so that the catalytic action of the truth of Enneagram insights can land and produce lasting change and transformation.

In the second half of the session, James Flaherty and Karen Jacke will focus on application of Riso-Hudson Enneagram insights in the assessment and design of Integral Coaching programs for clients.

The learning process will include example applications of the Integral Coaching model, a live coaching demonstration, and the opportunity to assess and design a Four Quadrants coaching program leveraging Enneagram insights specific to your client.

This is an intermediate-to-advanced workshop; no “basics” will be taught, although all are welcome.
