The Enneagram describes three types of intelligence: Cognitive Intelligence (IQ), Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and Instinctual Intelligence (CQ). As a result of a general lack of understanding of these three equally valid ways of knowing, basic pedagogical practice has been based on a flawed and incomplete understanding of human intelligence and has resulted in a significant misallocation of resources within education systems around the world. This workshop presents a revolutionary way to understand human intelligence, and gives clear and accurate definitions, demonstrations, and applications of each of the three intelligences. The highlight of this workshop will be a panel which will allow participants to describe, in their own words, the three distinct ways of knowing and operating within the world.
