Awareness to Action Enneagram Foundation (Level 1)

  • The Awareness to Action Enneagram is a pragmatic and immediately useful as a model of nine distinct personality styles, nine aspects of each one of us, and nine competencies of how we engage with the world, especially as leaders.
  • The Foundation certification program focuses on the first element—understanding how the ATA Enneagram identifies different “types” or “kinds” of people—and how understanding these differences is useful for supporting growth in your work as a coach, consultant, trainer, or OD/HR practitioner. Topics of the module include: clear thinking about the Enneagram, the nine Ennea-type strategies, the three Instinctual Biases, the 27 subtypes, creating change with the Awareness to Action Process, and a brief introduction to assessing personality type.
  • This program consists of six two-hour live sessions, conducted every other week. The live sessions are supplemented by over 100 videos, optional monthly Q&A sessions, and small group learning. Participants will watch the relevant videos for each session and the live sessions will consist of review and practice of the material.
  • For maximum flexibility, we have separated the program from a cohort model, meaning you can join at any time. If you miss a live session, you can attend it the next time we cycle through the program.
  • Interested in self-directed learning only? We have special rates for participants who only want to access the videos but not the live sessions. (Note: Attendance at the live sessions is required for certification.)
