The Typing Process
March 13, 2020 - March 15, 2020
2 ½ days
(Begin here for either the Enneagram Teachers or Professionals track)
In this expertly constructed training, you will learn how to facilitate self-discovery in your clients. From neuroscience we know that learning through experience rather than being given an insight is hugely impactful in creating new neural pathways that transform rather than merely inform. You will learn step-by-step how to conduct typing interviews to assist Enneagram newcomers in determining their type. You will develop articulate questions, learn the process of inquiry and how to listen deeply, and provide interviewees with guidance that allow them to discover their Enneagram type.
Modules include differentiating one type from another, non-verbal aspects of type, and knowledge of your own biases in conducting interviews. The training culminates in a rare hands-on opportunity to practice your skills by interviewing volunteers from the community, with feedback from instructors. The overall purpose of this process is to help clients discover what motivates patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. Type cannot be determined from external behaviors but only from a deeper understanding of focus of attention, underlying motivations and lived experience.
