Using the Enneagram to Enhance Relationships … Including the One With Yourself!
December 8, 2012 / 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Personal relationships are the foundation upon which we grow, strive and become our best and truest selves. How does our personality style help or hinder the process of our most important and precious intimate relationships? How can we broaden, deepen and enrich such relationships?
The Enneagram personality typology is an elegantly balanced system for understanding the subtle shadings of human personality through a rich blend of modern psychology, ancient spiritual practice and insight. Since the Enneagram system has direct application in both personal and career relationships, it has increasingly been used by corporate training and human relations professionals.
Join David Banner Ph.D. of the Walden University PhD program in Leadership and Organizational Change. Dave helped establish the Viterbo University MBA program. He has authored several books, most recently, “Frameshifting: A Path to Wholeness”. He has taught the use of the Enneagram in numerous business and career settings. He is a skilled and compassionate teacher.
Within the context of the Enneagram, we will explore ways to observe and manage attitudes, feelings and behaviors that repeatedly come up in the dynamic of interacting with spouses, partners, family (including our children), friends and professional colleagues. Often we unknowably become the greatest obstacle to the very relationships we seek.
Among other things, students will learn to:
- Spot your habitual patterns of behavior and attention.
- Develop compassion and empathy for yourself and others.
- Understand those who are different from you.
- Work better in teams.
While some knowledge of the Enneagram and awareness of one’s personality type is helpful, it is not essential for this workshop.
