The Enneagram is a superb diagnostic tool to use in conjunction with whatever other techniques one uses in coaching. It does not displace other approaches, but refines and specifies what motivations and unconscious agendas are probably also at play. When coaching techniques and strategies are conscious, the Enneagram can provide the unconscious or partially conscious agenda and focus that will conflict with or support the behavioral strategies.
Clarence Thomson started the first Enneagram newsletter and edited it for 8 years. He’s written two books, co-written one more on the Enneagram and has been teaching and coaching with the Enneagram nationally and internationally for 12 years.
