AT A GLANCE...
MONTHLY INSIGHT: SPONTANEITY

Gayle Hardie, a transformative business consultant from Australia and Senior Member of the Enneagram in Business Network, has written this month's Insight Activity on Spontaneity.

spontaneity Insight Activity: Spontaneity

Experience tells me that the gift of spontaneity lights up the hearts of others. Being spontaneous can be as simple as letting someone know you care when they least expect it or thanking someone for just being in your life, rather than waiting to thank them for something they have actually done.


It is also about trusting your instinct and taking the chance. It is making the choice without the deep rationalizing that often occurs prior to taking the step. How many of us have noticed that when we finally decide that we are ready to move forward, the moment has passed?


I have found that if I recognize my spontaneous action or language as a "gift" to another, the judgment around whether it is appropriate or not lessens, and the risk in taking the opportunity to give increases. When given in that spirit, it has the potential to delight.


One person ("Enneangel") made a very astute comment on this blog: "So what you're saying is that, whatever your Enneagram type, to be spontaneous you have to be in touch with your essence? That makes sense."

 

You can click here to read the blog in which I've written about how each of us, depending on our Enneagram style, can become more truly spontaneous. This blog discusses the distinction between impulsivity and spontaneity - and there is a big difference! It was one of the most challenging and interesting blogs for me to think through and write.

2011 Train-the-Trainer Programs
 

ft lauderdalThe 2011 Train-the-Trainer (T-the-T) programs will be held this summer in Fort Lauderdale, Florida directly before and after the IEA (International Enneagram Association) Conference at the Westin Beach Resort (same hotel as the conference).

*  T-the-T Bringing Out the Best in Yourself at Work July 22 - 27, 2011

*  T-the-T What Type of Leader Are You? August 1 - 6, 2011

What you get from these programs (which are very different from one another) is numerous training activities in a detailed Training Guide, original powerpoints, training tools, and lots of experience going through the activities yourself. Expect high engagement, intense interaction, and personal as well as professional growth. The first T-the-T focuses on the core applications of the Enneagram in organizations - communication, conflict, feedback, team dynamics, leadership style - and the Leadership T-the-T focuses on developing specific leadership competencies using the Enneagram.

In addition, these programs attract high quality participants from around the world. As a result, the people who attend are every bit as interesting as the programs themselves.
Registration Fee:

T-the-T Bringing Out the Best in Yourself at Work ($1200 USD before February 1; $1300 after)

T-the-T What Type of Leader Are You?  ($1400 USD before February 1; $1500 after)

Fee includes registration, materials, and break refreshments; participants arrange their own hotel reservations (we have a special rate) and meals. The Leadership T-the-T is slightly more expensive because there are more materials provided, such as simulations and banners.

To register for either program, click here.

Discounts for attending both programs

An increasing number of people are going through both programs during the same time period. They actually enjoy it and don't get too tired! To make this easier on everyone's budget, there is a discount of $300. Before February 1, registration is $2300; after February 1, registration is $2500. Discounted registrations can only be done through contacting our office directly rather than online. Please contact us via phone  (310-829-3309) or here.
