WORKSHOP: This is not a class, it is a workshop.

PRACTICE: You will work directly with and practice with a partner. We will use difficult personalities and cases until you are confident with the three triads and the delimiters within each triad to exclude all but the relevant dynamics.

FIRST KNOW THYSELF: The Enneagram, first, is the best means for self-knowledge and self mastery. My view is that learning our own personality is a requisite foundation in ‘walking our talk.’ And, of course, especially so for those of us in the helping professions.

WORLDWIDE: Usage of the Enneagram is exploding. Russ Hudson and other Enneagram experts are teaching on every continent. It has become a common language with many of my colleagues. The International Enneagram Association sponsors an annual conference.

MISUSE: The Enneagram, in the form of the RHETI and it’s interpretation through the Enneagram Institute, is my most effective and useful avenue for accurately understanding what I identify as the Default Personality. I view the Enneagram as one of the tools which is so powerful that it can be misused, misinterpreted and detrimental unless taught well.

WORKSHOP PREP: To take full advantage of this workshop, you need to gain trust in your ability to understand how the Types work. The best way to learn this ability is to first practice doing it independently. Bring your RHETI scores and/or the scores of a friend, couple or client.

SECOND TEST: If you did your RHETI in the past, do it again! having an overlay of your different scores is an indicator of how you are affected by the unfolding journey of your life. And, this may be a contributing factor in confusion about an E-Type.

RHETI: Go to: enneagraminstitute.com

THERE IS ONE TRUE TYPE: The majority of the time will be spent on your questions, on your confusion in being clear about your true Enneatype and accurately identifying another’s true E-Type.

ACCURACY: When someone is miss-typed, there’s often confusion, mis-direction, distrust and lost time. Misunderstanding in families, marriages, friendships and with colleagues can create further hardships. Then, we need to carefully retrace steps to start over with relevant strategies to locate the one, true E-Type.

LOGICAL CAUSES: As professionals, we have the knowledge to prevent this dilemma and to show the logical causes of the mistakes.

NOT A FIX: I agree with one of our best corporate Enneagram experts, Michael J. Goldberg in his book “The 9 Ways of Working: How to Use the Enneagram to Discover Your Natural Strengths and Work More Effectively” when he writes that

“…the Enneagram is not employed to best advantage when it is used to “fix” people, either in the sense of repairing them, or in the sense of defining them.”

I have great respect for the almost infinite dimensions of learning about these Types and am devoted to teaching through the views of knowing human beings, their infinite complexities and yet universal abilities.

TWO TOP TOOLS: Practice using the two top tools – we will apply them to ensure you are confident, not matter how confusing the stories may be.

INTRODUCING: You will be familiar with the Tritypes as another expansion of seeing the subtleties of the Enneatypes.

“When you do discover your type, you will know it. Waves of relief and embarrassment, of elation and chagrin, are likely to sweep over you. Things that you have always known unconsciously about yourself will suddenly become clear, and life patterns will emerge. You can be certain that when this happens, you have identified your personality type correctly.” – Riso and Hudson

INVITATION: Even if you are just curious about the Enneagram, please come! This workshop is really the best beginning ~ making sure you and your clients know their One True E-Type.
I’m so grateful to make sure you have the focus you need in your work with the Enneagram!

    I met Heather again, at a recent talk she gave and WOW! she was fabulous… Heather is sincerely, energetic, intelligent and funny. She understands the deep intra-communication that goes on within and helps people express and understand themselves in the vast complexities of their lives. I would recommend her any day as a therapist and guide.

    Heather, your presentation style has a delightful authenticity; and allowing us to use your materials shows a spirit of community that I really admire and want to emulate! I’m about to go to your website and download a few of the handouts/lists you showed us.

    Heather is a remarkable therapist with excellent clinical skills. I have often referred people to her for couple’s counseling due to her gift for working with marriage and family therapy issues. I highly recommend her and her work. She is among a small number of therapists that I trust enough to refer to regularly.
