the conference, particularly seeing Don Riso; it was heart-warming to be with
him again. Although I could only go to a few sessions - I had to skip Friday
afternoon to meet with a client - I loved Jerry Wagner's keynote on the Rosetta
Stone. Funny and wise, Jerry delivered a clear message: Be watchful, wary and open to Enneagram theory. Test it out for
yourself. Don't just accept something as true just because someone you admire
says it is so!
was Helen Palmer's session on Enneagram type and addiction (the focus was on
gambling addiction, but it really applied to all), as well as Uranio Paes' program
on movement around the Enneagram symbol that was based on some very deep work
he has been studying and using extensively.
session went very well. Here's what the Enneagram Monthly reviewer said about
continues to set the standard in training coaches to use the Enneagram in
one-on-one and team coaching environments. Ginger distinguished between the
various development challenges that a client faces, and warned against the
pitfalls that any coach can encounter. The presentation was a practical but
comprehensive look at the Enneagram-based coaching arena. As ever, Ginger
organizes small groups and paired sharing to ensure solid learning. Good
theory, good practices, good presentation from a pro. Her seminars always
include an example or two of the exceptional collateral materials that she has
developed to aid those who study her approaches and utilize her coaching and
training methodologies. These are works of art.
the San Francisco Coaching with the
Enneagram certificate program. If I could have imagined a more wonderful
set of participants, it would not have been nearly so great as the attendees in
San Francisco: 34 people who were committed to learning and growth. What more
could I ask for? Some magic happened. Thank you all who attended, but also
Gloria Hung, Val Atkin, and Ken Sergi who assisted in various ways.
month end, I'm off to an NTL (National Training Labs) meeting near Washington
DC because Beth Appelgate, an OD consultant and past Train-the-Trainer
participant, was just voted into NTL membership. As her sponsor, I promised to
support her at the meeting. Beth and I hope to run some T-groups that integrate
the Enneagram in the not-too-distant future. Congratulations, Beth!

Enneagram Theory Blog Series
is nothing so practical as a good theory.
- Kurt Lewin*
In this series
of forthcoming blogs, I will share the Enneagram-related theories that I most
often use, why I believe they are likely to be true and accurate, their source
as I know it, and why I believe they are so practical. I'll also be asking several
Enneagram teachers who are part of the Enneagram in Business Network to guest
blog on their favorite theories.
This first blog discusses the Enneagram
Centers of Intelligence, a topic selected because I believe it is fundamental
to our understanding of the Enneagram; some teachers hardly refer to it; some
use the theory but I think not completely or accurately, and many teachers use
it both accurately and effectively.
Gema de la Rosa from Spain wrote this about the blog: "So clear
Enneagram Theory: The Three Centers of Intelligence
The next blog in the series focuses on the primary psychological defense mechanisms for each Enneagram style, a topic selected because though many Enneagram teachers use this concept, others do not. Subsequent blogs will include concepts and practices related to wings; arrows (written by Senior Enneagram in Business Network member Peter O'Hanrahan); subtypes; the 9-3-6 movement; the 1-4-2-8-5-7 movement; and a lot more.
Enneagram and Coaching Blog Series
includes three different blogs on how to coach individuals from the Head Center
(Fives, Sixes, Sevens); the Heart Center (Twos, Threes, and Fours); and this
final one on how to coach Body Center style clients.

Enneagram Styles and Communication with
Famous People Blog Series
This is the
last of a nine-part series on how the Enneagram styles communicate and comes
with short YouTube links demonstrating two famous people of each style
communicating. These can be used for your own education and enjoyment or for
use with groups when teaching the Enneagram. Famous Nines: Sandra Bullock and the Dalai Lama
Be sure to read the earlier
eight blogs in this series.
Enneagram Styles and Discernment
This blog is based on an activity created by Ruth Landis and ideas from me that enable
individuals of the nine styles to be more discerning. Discernment is the
"ability to judge well." Some styles are over-discerning; some discern too
little! Within this series, this particular blog was the most challenging and
stimulating to write. Click here to read this blog.
