While the instincts are an important part of the Enneagram body of knowledge, they are often under-utilized. However, the three instincts (commonly referred to as self-preservation, social, and sexual or one-to-one) are rich sources for identifying opportunities for growth and development. This highly interactive program will explore the instincts and how they can be used in coaching. While the focus of the presenter is on corporate executive coaching, coaches of all types will find much value in the session.
