The Enneagram and Relationships: Intimate and Professional Workshop 

Why Some Relationships Work... and Others Don't

Relationships are one of the most rewarding - as well as one of the most frustrating -aspects of our existence. Whether in intimate or work settings, the quality of our relationships has an enormous impact on the quality of our lives, on our self-esteem, and on our careers. Yet, we often find the behavior of others baffling—even if we have known them intimately for many years. Often, the very things that we do not understand in others are the greatest sources of problems and conflicts in our relationships. Clearly, the better we know ourselves and the people in our lives, the more harmonious and satisfying our relationships will be.

The Enneagram can help us tremendously in understanding our relationships. It is a remarkable system of nine basic personality types that sheds light on the most important psychological dynamics in our personality, as well as on the deeper spiritual yearnings of our soul. Each type has its own set of strengths, vulnerabilities, and perceptions of the world. The Enneagram can help us to realize who we are and what our greatest potentials might be, as well as to make sense of the sometimes confusing behavior of others.

Participants will be guided to use the Enneagram as a profound and immensely practical way to understand their relationships with others, both intimate and professional. We will cover particular dynamics among the different types, effective methods for communicating with each type, and the ways in which the three Instinctual Variants (Subtypes) affect our main motivations in relationships.

The Insight Approach® will be used, employing interactive exercises, guided meditations, panels of exemplars, music, and other techniques to help participants recognize personal strengths as well as to uncover the blind spots that they bring to their relationships. If you want to improve your relationship with a spouse, child, friend, business associate, or family member, this Workshop will be invaluable.

During Our Time Together

  • Discover what we are drawn to in relationships (gifts), and what are some of the challenges each Enneagram Type faces 
  • Gain a practical way to improve communication and understand when two people have a disagreement so there will be more compassion and understanding (and less issues and triggers)
  • Learn how each type has specific hard wiring behaviors that leads to many of the conflicts and challenges in relationships, and what can be done so there is more ease
