Bo M, Community Youth Leadership Steering Committee
She wonderfully explains each type, giving context to them in many ways (work, relationships) as well as detailing the various elements of the Enneagram (centers, wings, stress, security). It was insightful, accessible and entertaining, and has truly opened my eyes to how I see the world in a particular way as well as how other people very unlike me see the world—and that gives me the ability to reframe my relationships with other people.
Elisa B., Chamber of Commerce

I have helped many people in many places on many paths towards their personalized deeper and higher best… in their work, relationships, personal growth, leadership, effectiveness and performance. I coach with genuine, focused commitment to your vision resulting in clarity of direction, self confidence, enhanced sense of personal meaning and purpose.

For many, this is akin to offloading unnecessary items in your pack -items that could be useful to someone, may have been useful to you on a particular trail section but are no longer helpful or needed for this stage of your climb!
