Enneagram Business Coach Certification



Your pathway to becoming a fully accredited business coach and obtain your professional credentials by the International Association of Coaching.

“Throughout my career of over forty years I’ve seen all kind of management fads come and go. Perhaps the common denominator of these temporary fads is that they offer “one-size-fits-all” solutions together with unrealistic promises of “total transformation” of your personality and behavior. Against the trend of canned approaches that keep plaguing the market suggesting ungrounded approaches to today’s managers’ challenges, here is a methodology that goes counter-current. Yechezkel and Ruth Madanes’ approach is innovative and intellectually stimulating as well as professional and practical. It will challenge you not only to think but also to act out of the box.”
—ICHAK ADIZES, Ph.D., Stanford and Columbia universities professor, world-renowned authority in organizational transformation

“Powerful tools for transformation!” – Tony Robbins on Twitter, about Madanes School work, in a message to his 2 million followers

Learn what is perhaps the most powerful business coaching system in existence:

The diagnostic power of the enneagram (that allows you to quickly identify a client’s personality type and its strengths, unique potential, working style and preferences, relational style, predictable areas of struggle, developmental challenges, fear, limiting beliefs, “autopilot” style, blind spots and much more)


The transformational coaching techniques of Tony Robbins (that allow you to help your coachees understand their reality, set goals, clarify their values, get leverage, overcome limiting beliefs, manage their emotions and get focused, generate options and take massive action).


The power of the Adizes management methodology (that allows you to laser-focus your coaching on the 4 management roles that makes an organization and a manager healthy – i.e. effective and efficient in the short and in the long run-; allows you monitor and check by whom, when, how and whether the 4 roles are being performed; and to check how strong a manager and each member of the team are in the 4 roles, while taking into account the roles most needed at the present stage of the project’s lifecycle).

And all that within…

The guidelines and principles of the IAC for becoming a masterful coach.  Madanes School is an official licensee of the IAC and our Directors, Yechezkel and Ruth Madanes are the authors of the new IAC’s handbook “Coaching 3.0 How to become a Masterful Coach with the IAC’s 9 Masteries”(with a foreword by IAC’s President)

What is coaching with the Enneagram?

Our School trains you as an Enneagram Coach. An Enneagram Coach is not a typical Life Coach that uses the Enneagram as an extra tool. It’s an expert in the identification of personality types and in the coaching of each of the types.

What’s the main difference with other coaching approaches?

The main difference is that an Enneagram Coach doesn’t work with a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Instead of using the same coaching strategies with all of their clients, Enneagram Coaches are able to tailor their interventions according to the needs of the particular client at hand.

Our collaboration with management professor and globally recognized authority in organizational development Dr. Ichak Adizes

For over forty years Dr.Ichak Adizes has developed the management methodology that bears his name. His record is unbeatable: professor at UCLA, Stanford and Columbia Universities; consultant to Fortune 500 companies; consultant to prime ministers and cabinet-level officers from around the world; 18 honorary doctorates from universities in 10 countries; author of 20 books that are classics in the field, translated into 26 languages; founder and president of the Adizes Institute in California. He is considered by Leadership Excellence Journal one of the top ten consultants of the United States.

We at Madanes School have been privileged to partner, work and collaborate with Dr.Ichak Adizes in a variety of projects, including the creation of a methodology for coaching executives using the Enneagram and Adizes that gave birth to the From Stuckness to Growth: Executive Coaching book, under Dr.Adizes close supervision and feedback.

Help your coachees discover your Enneagram & Adizes PAEI “operating system” (E-PAEI) that drives how they work

People are different. And they work differently. The Adizes PAEI code helps you understand the four functions (Producing, Administrating, Entrepreneuring and Integrating) that every business needs in order to be healthy. By healthy, Adizes means being effective and efficient, in the short and in the long term.

Studying the four roles, or managerial “vitamins”, and who, when, how and whether they are being performed, can be a vital, life-changing tool for both organizations and their people.

In other words, unlike other typologies, the Adizes PAEI code not only describes your personality – who you are – but also puts together who you are with what your project/organization/division needs, and in particular what it needs at different stages of its lifecycle.

 The Enneagram, a renowned personality typing system that is enjoying enormous popularity and is used by Fortune 500 companies, explains why we behave the way we do, providing an important tool for self-discovery and insight. When put together with the Adizes methodology, the Enneagram goes on steroids! You can get the skills for your specific personality type for how to improve the way you work more quickly than you ever dreamed before. And learn how to make it happen now -not ten years from now.

 Now, for the very first time, these two systems have been put together. In this program you will discover your Enneagram & PAEI style (E-PAEI) and that of the people you work with.

Learn how to use the Enneagram with Tony Robbins’ coaching techniques – plus the powerful Adizes PAEI code!

Our certification is the only professional business coaching certification that combines the Enneagram with Anthony Robbins & Cloe Madanes’ Human Needs Psychology – and combines it with the legendary and powerful Adizes methodology.
