Coming Up

Enneagram Learning Portal

We are very excited to announce the launch of our Enneagram Learning Portal on November 14, 2020. This project has been developed over the past ten months and will provide online access to tailored courses and programs about the Enneagram at various levels. You can also contact all of our experienced Enneagram teachers and coaches from one online location.

Through this learning portal we are now able to offer our popular Enneagram programs world-wide at affordable discounted rates. You can choose from a range of options from a single learning unit to a discounted package of courses. Delivery is flexible with self-paced learning. Whether you are new to the Enneagram or have been working with this powerful tool for some time, there is something for everyone on this portal.

From the portal you can access the iEQ9 Enneagram questionnaire, learn more about the Enneagram and have a confidential Enneagram coaching session. There are 63 separate learning units available on the portal, including e-books, videos, online Enneagram workshops and Enneagram coaching sessions.

For those wishing to advance their knowledge of the Enneagram we are offering comprehensive accredited courses to provide a Certificate of Attainment in Enneagram Studies and an Enneagram Facilitator Certificate. Participants in the Enneagram facilitator accreditation course have ongoing coaching support from our teaching staff in the development of their skills and knowledge to become a competent Enneagram facilitator.

All of our presenters are certified Enneagram teachers who have had significant experience in leadership roles and in working with the Enneagram to bring out the best in their people and clients. All have a passionate belief in the power of the Enneagram for transformational change, personally and professionally.

A huge amount of work from our very clever team has gone into developing the portal, particularly from our wonderful Technical Services Manager, Michelle.

Enneagram Videos

We are very excited to announce our new project to develop 10 videos on the value of using the knowledge of the Enneagram in personal and professional life.

We will be interviewing an exemplar of each of the nine types to better understand how they have applied these learnings and the impact at work and at home.

We have had the privilege of working with hundreds of staff in the Port Stephens Council in NSW over the past 10 years. This has provided us with the opportunity to analyse the long-term benefits of using the Enneagram as a tool for personal and organisational transformation.

These videos will be available in July this year and will be freely available as a learning tool.

Friday 4th May

In our travels and meeting so many people in workshops we are often given great suggestions for podcasts to listen to or good books to read. Steve Bernasconi from the Port Stephens Council in NSW, Australia recently recommended a podcast called One Head, Two Brains. I found this absolutely fascinating listening.

In this podcast, Iain McGilchrist (a psychiatrist, writer and former Oxford scholar) is interviewed about his book The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Bran and the Making of the Western World. He has been a neuroimaging researcher at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and uses his research and clinical practice to explore the fraught question about the function of the right and the left hand sides of the brain.

He talks about the left hand side of the brain being more direct, linear, good at the detail, categorisation, and mathematics. It is more black and white and sees a more narrow view of the world. The right hand side of the brain, however, is better at seeing the whole. It can deal in shades of grey and can make associations that are necessary to understand analogies or pick up on humorous references and connotations. It is more emotionally literate and can make the connections. He describes it as “more like flow in motion”.

We clearly access both sides of the brain in order to see the part within the whole. His argument is that in Western civilisation we have become increasingly more attuned to or fascinated with the rational mind (which he calls the “faithful” servant or “the emissary” – rather than the master (which he calls the intuitive mind – “a precious gift for humanity”). He argues that this has led to a loss of the humanistic view and more narrow thinking in the western world.

:Have a listen - it is worth taking the time. Iain is very entertaining, drawing on lots of examples from music, the arts, comedy and everyday life to support his view – which is quite compelling.

Thanks Steve – great suggestion.
