The instincts at the root of the 27 subtypes are biological phenomena, yet most approaches to them treat them as purely psychological phenomena or rely on out-dated understandings of biology. Mario’s approach to the subtypes is rooted in modern evolutionary psychology and extends beyond the limited perspective that views the subtypes as rooted in three (and only three) instincts rather than understanding them as complex and often contradictory clusters of instincts that fall into three broad domains. From this modern base, Mario’s descriptions of the subtypes are based on experience working with executive coaching clients on five continents in organizations ranging from Fortune 100 companies to small, family-owned businesses. This interactive program will explore the 27 subtypes and participants will benefit from tangible insights that can be applied in their work and personal lives. This program is a must for anyone who works with the Enneagram in organizations, but it will also benefit anyone who wants to use this rich aspect of the Enneagram to grow and mature.
