Certificate in Enneagram Coaching

Why study Enneagram Coaching?

From the desk of Yechezkel and Ruth Madanes

She was ten minutes late to our first coaching meeting. Judging by the puff of smoke that came into the room with her, I guessed that Linda had been smoking up until the very second that she opened the door. Five minutes later, she said, “There is something important I want to share with you: I've done therapy for three years, and my therapist said I have a ‘major depressive disorder'. She prescribed antidepressants, and I took them for a while. The results were horrible. I felt a lot worse after taking them. Deep inside, I knew something was not right. A friend handed me a book about the Enneagram and I became fascinated with the subject. I finished it in a weekend. I discovered I am a Type Four. The descriptions were so accurate that I felt the book's author, without even meeting me, understood me better than my therapist whom I have had for years. To me, it was a relief to discover that my tendency to melancholy and mood swings was a normal, expected mechanism of my personality type. It was not something ‘wrong', something that needed to be ‘cured’ or ‘fixed’.”

We have been working with the Enneagram system for almost a decade, and we, like Linda, have found ourselves fascinated by the accuracy of the descriptions of our own types. We wouldn't be exaggerating if we said that without this incredible map our personal and professional lives would look quite different today. If you are familiar with the system, you probably know the feeling. Our fascination with the power of this system was such that we reconfigured all our life and executive coaching practices to have the Enneagram as their base. We have applied the Enneagram in our programs with thousands of students, teachers, and parents in elementary and high schools in several countries. Over the years, we have also been experimenting with the cross-fertilization of the Enneagram with other important systems and have lately dedicated most of our research in that direction. This course is the fruit of all these years of research.

In an era of constant change and tremendous personal and professional stress, we believe it is critical for anybody who wants to work with people, to be equipped with the best human development tools available in order to help others reach their personal goals and dreams. Throughout this course, we will be presenting our innovative model that uses the Enneagram system as a basis for transformational coaching.

Why study Enneagram Coaching at Madanes School?

The explosive growth of the coaching industry has brought hope to millions of people searching for ways to take charge and improve their own lives. In recent decades coaching has seen a tremendous expansion throughout the world and has gained recognition as an effective tool for the attainment of personal goals. However, this fast growth has also had some negative consequences, among them the proliferation of simplistic, “one-size-fits-all” approaches to coaching. Many coaching schools around the world keep repeating the mantra of “results,” reducing coaching to a sort of efficient run towards a goal while removing any obstacles on the way. Being practical and concrete is usually overemphasized. The problem with such coaching approaches is that, although they project a pragmatic, bottom-line, committed-to-results image, they ironically ignore the inner configurations of people and the mechanisms that are the very key to producing lasting, meaningful results.

Madanes' proprietary method of Enneagram Coaching

Our School's training program is based on the Madanes model, the only coaching approach in the world that combines the Enneagram with Myers Briggs and Robbins-Madanes' Human-Needs Psychology. Our program will equip you with the finest coaching tools available to read your coachees and transform their lives.
