Enneagram styles and three approaches to change: Behavioral, cognitive, psychodynamic

There are various therapeutic interventions designed to bring about change. This presentation will feature three approaches—each from a different tradition: behavioral, cognitive, and psychodynamic. It will take an excavation/failure approach to transformation. Start with surface behavior and, if that doesn’t work, dig deeper into cognitive schemas, and then further down into cyclical recurring childhood patterns. We’ll look at how classical and operant conditioning operate with each Enneagram style. What cues our behavior and what maintains it? What is each type doing? We’ll look at adaptive and maladaptive schemas for each type. What are the clarifying and distorting lenses we look through? What is each type thinking? Finally, what are the cyclical relational patterns we learn when we’re young that we keep creatively repeating? And how does each Enneagram style subconsciously recruit accomplices to keep their drama going? How is each type relating? The irony is the very strategies we develop to prevent us from being humiliated and hurt in the past, are the preconceptions and behaviors that bring about the very situation we’re trying to avoid. Hopefully, these awarenesses themselves will initiate change.

Claus has taught more than 125,000 people in the Enneagram in Denmark and abroad. With his great teaching experience, Claus has built up his very own style. A style based on high speed and great personal commitment. The form is interactive, present, empathetic, humorous, motivating and confrontational - but always with great respect for the individual. Claus is known for his vast knowledge of people in the workplaces and in family life. His live teaching is filled with exciting stories from reality that give a very clear picture of the types in everyday life. In business, Claus has +20 years of experience in management and sales and today runs his own school, the Enneagramstedet, which he founded in 2012.

The Enneagram & Sales – Because hard business needs more humanity!

The primary reason to get the deal, is NOT to be a super seller!
It is by far more your human talent to create a trustworthy, empathic and respectful connection to the client. Sales in the "old days" was about convincing the client to buy whatever you had - but it doesn´t work in the long run and most likely not in the future market.
My experience (+20 years in sales and nearly 20 years in corporate Enneagram training) is, that it does not work like that anymore. Study shows that up to 55% of your success rate is only related to one thing?
"How much does your customer like and thrust you - as a person?"
In this workshop you will be given theory, practical tips & tricks so you can be more successful in getting the deal - because in the end, we have ALL something to sell (communication or products). And my hope is that your business can grow with more knowledge about the combination Enneagram AND Sales.

Anatomy of the EGO: The Neuroscience behind the Enneagram

Discover how the ego takes over the essence. Learn the Neuroscience behind the Enneagram. I will share my view of how your ego shaped your brain to ensure survival when you were a kid. Did you know that reality is not how your brain draws it? Or that the brain prefers to be right rather than happy? Using the work of scientists like Dan Siegel, Carol Dweck, Antonio Damasio, Bruce Litpon and Daniel Golleman, we can support and explain the Enneagram theory from the Neurocogntive and biological point of view. Understand what happens when your personality takes over, so you can deactivate the ego and take control of your life; and how the Enneagram literally remodels the brain/mind so that you stop surviving and start living.

The Enneagram and Paradox - crossing the bridge from dualistic to quantum thinking

The next stage of human evolution will require more than just cleverness, innovation and compassion - it will require us to get beyond duality consciousness all together. The Enneagram can be a bridge between a polarised approach and a quantum one. It leads us to the essential paradox at the heart of a matter and, with the courage to sit there, we transform. I will speak to how I use the Enneagram to collapse the paradox between the professional and the personal (my corporate work), within close relationships (my parenting and couples work) and in particular between the small mind and Divine mind (my meditation work). In this workshop we will also identify and play with a personal paradox.

Thrive in Complexity through The Enneagram and Mindfulness

Consciousness, performance, awareness, and quality thinking is dependent on being in the present moment, in the “now”. However, we are constantly distracted from the now into the future, past and other common external stressors. Enneagram Types have different habitual reactions to distractions. When we cultivate the ability to be less distracted, we also build resilience, become smarter and more able to engage with our Enneagram Lines of Integration. The presentation draws on personal experience and teaching mindfulness-based applications to executives in the corporate environment. Delegates will gain insight on how The Enneagram guides our consciousness and awareness in complexity.

Three Essential Values of the Enneagram

The triad is foundational to the Enneagram with three centres of intelligence, three instinctual variants, three interaction and conflict styles. So why is our relationship to values not represented more explicitly and in unity with this principle, or Law of Three? Together, we will explore how values have evolved across recorded history, what neuroscience suggests to us about the origin and evolution of values in the human experience; we will also dig into the practical implications of mapping essential values to Type Structures, as we get on the Enneagram Mat and explore our own embodied value orientations interactively.

Deborah pioneered the development of “The Platinum Connection, building bridges across differences"; and has launched the Enneagram Healing Humanity Collaborative bringing the Enneagram to homeless shelters and communities that work with men and women who are marginalized.

The Enneagram: Enemy of Implicit Bias

We have come to discover that implicit bias is something that lurks in the background of our consciousness. Try as we may to deny its existence, implicit bias is there whether we choose to own it or not. When we surface our implicit biases, we can engage our Enneagram work to help release the hold that this destructive subconscious force has on us as individuals. In this session, delegates will explore the ubiquitous nature of “automatic advantage” vs “outrageous indignity” as experienced by the 9 Enneagram archetypes. Through a series of experiential activities, individual reflection and group discussion, delegates will explore the healing strengths, paralyzing blocks and destructive challenges inherent in surfacing the implicit bias for each Enneagram type.

Fear Factor and the Enneagram - the brain's response to threat and the coping mechanisms of each Type

Fear can either motivate us to achieve or numb us to a vegetative state. Fear brings out a deep and immediate reaction - the fight, freeze or flight syndrome. This is most evident in fear induced situations when people either respond positively or narcoticize and even collapse. In our current world which is changing so rapidly, the emergence of new generations and the fierce global economic pressures, it is essential for leaders and coaches to find innovative ways of supporting people to understand their fear triggers and find effective ways to manage their adrenaline. In this session, Lee will draw on her experience of working within a vast and diverse client-base and share her findings from monitoring their responses to fear and anxiety.

Journey to the centre of YOUR earth - Team building and the Enneagram, done differently

The journey of Leadership is not mutually exclusive to the journey of the centre of self. Given the depth of the Enneagram, the true gift can often be missed by a client whom is not intellectually present during a debrief. This workshop will outline a practical case study that was born out of debriefs of over 200 assessments. We approach the session through the lens of the thinking, feeling and action centres, prior to briefing in the 9 types. The virtues and vices of each centre are challenged and triggered in an immersive experience. We then unpack each of the behavioural shifts that occur.

Kick-starting the mind, heart and body for growth: visualizing and programming for personal Type development

Often, we are not aware of our resistance to change, hiding behind very clever diversionary tactics and resourceful excuses. How can we reassure our unconscious mind that breaking the paradoxes we live in will enable us to thrive? How can we prepare ourselves for the road ahead?

This workshop offers an Enneagram-experience based on Neuro Linguistic Programming. Delegates will have an opportunity to feel the effect of visualization and language as a means to kick-starting their mind, heart and body for growth.

Creating a well-being economy

We live in a world where we are heading for a major crash. The way we currently operate is unsustainable, and we can call it ‘the Growth Economy’. This is about anything that will increase GDP, and whilst this has been a huge influence in the advancements we have seen today, there is a side effect which is catching up to us faster than we even know. There is a new model, one that speaks to sufficiency and contribution, one we can call the Well-being Economy, that focuses on well-being. To do this, requires a revolution in consciousness.

A Human Journey through the Dervish Tales

Every night, my daughter would listen to me with fascination as I told her one of the Dervish tales. What we felt and experienced during this special time was the pleasure of escaping the real world and entering another world, through the musicality of the words, through the images and through the power of the story. What could be more beautiful than to have discovered the Dervish tales through a storyteller? Their impact was immediate in terms of spirit, sophistication, irony, piquancy and common-sense. This experience guided me to immerse myself in these tales with the heart and experience of a novice. I believe that these teaching-tales could become a permanent part of our life experience, and our spiritual and human development.
