Event Details:

We are complex individuals, yet, at our core, systematic motivational patterns ignite our strengths and trigger defenses. Whether in our personal lives or in organizations, we can sometimes be baffled by our own impulses, as well as the behavior others. 

Discover these hidden patterns and explore courageous questions that can drive success in life: “What makes me come alive? What makes others tick? How can I increase my capacity to succeed and flourish?” 

The Enneagram has been used for decades as a method to increase self-understanding and for self-development. It is also used as a method to improve workplace dynamics by teaching strategies that build rapport and empathy and reduce unproductive conflict. 

In this course, you will:
• Learn the nine personality type structures of the Enneagram method
• Discover your type-based strengths and defense patterns
• Gain effective communication skills and emotional intelligence
• Enjoy greater effectiveness, confidence and well-being

Instructors: Peter O'Hanrahan is a leading Enneagram teacher and trainer worldwide and is the co-author of the Enneagram workplace guide, Transformational Leadership, which is used globally, by companies and university graduate programs.

Carole Pertofsky, M.Ed, is the Director of Wellness and I Thrive at Stanford University, national speaker, trainer, consultant, and certified Enneagram seminar leader. She teaches positive psychology, mindfulness and well-being courses at Stanford University.
