Training Program Description:

The Advanced Coaching with the Enneagram certificate program is  designed to enable those who coach others to coach the whole person in context. Based on the  assumption that you are already familiar with core coaching theory and practice and know the  Enneagram well and can already integrate it into your coaching, this program is based on the  Coaching Circle. The Coaching Circle is used in two ways. The overarching use of the Coaching  Circle is for coaches to continuously employ the four core modes of coaching behavior:  Listening, Questioning, Feedback, and Challenging. These four areas are utilized throughout the  program, focusing first on the client as a whole person with integrated systems of thought  patterns, feeling responses, and behavioral habits. Coaching Circles are used as a foundation for  group (team) coaching. Coaches pursue an in‐depth understanding of the mental maps of clients  by enneatype and learn how to illuminate and challenge these mental models in service of the  client’s growth. The program also helps coaches focus on how to coach clients to increase  emotional literacy, creating awareness, openness, and expansiveness in clients of the nine enneatypes in order to strengthen and enrich their development. Crucially important in  coaching is how the body restrains us in ways that limit our ability to grow. The program  provides coaches with the opportunity to learn how to work somatically with clients of each  type and how to create dramatic release and change. In addition to integrating the mental,  emotional, and somatic aspects of coaching, coaches also work with client enneatype‐based  transformations.  Throughout the program, coaches engage in a variety of coaching practices  with feedback from both clients and observers  

Interactive Components:

4 five‐hour virtual sessions plus pre‐and post‐ work (2‐4 hours) for each session that utilizes  the Enneagram Learning Portal 


Participants ideally have some background in coaching and/or some familiarity with the Enneagram system and their Enneagram type. This program is designed for people who  range from some prior backgrounds in both of the above to those who have many years of  experience.  Everyone must read these two books prior to the program: Bringing Out the Best in  Everyone You Coach, The Art of the Enneagram, and The Art of Typing.
