Professional Certification Workshop

Professional Workshop

Learn to find your clients’ type with the most accurate methodology, find their Enneagram-based issues with precision, and develop unique solutions that truly impact their lives.

In this online workshop, Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes use a mix of interactive methodologies to teach participants key ways to integrate the Enneagram in doing effective work with clients. This workshop focuses on helping you develop greater facility with typing, assessment, and providing specific solutions to specific issues, so you can apply the Enneagram in your professional work for maximum, positive “outer impact” with your clients. Students will meet from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Pacific via Zoom each day. Students will have ample breaks throughout the day.

This course is one of three courses required for the Professional Certification Program for outer impact.  


  • Methods to help clients find their Enneagram Types, Subtypes, and Instinctual Sequences using CP Enneagram typing tools (which the participants will be able to use with their own clients after the workshop).
  • Exploration of the efficacy of Enneagram tests currently available and assessing their strengths and weaknesses. How to guide clients after they take these tests and how to make safe use of them.
  • Newly developed advanced assessment techniques. Exclusive theory and cases to help participants accurately identify how to help each client see themselves more clearly using the Enneagram map, by identifying where exactly where specific problems originate Enneagram-wise. Is this problem type related, more connected to subtype, the dominant or repressed instinct, or the result of a shift in level of awareness, or something else? Real cases will be used together with theory and practice to build participants’ competency to do a more sophisticated reading of clients’ issues and paths of growth, as well as how to more effectively help them.
  • More advanced approaches to working with the Enneagram with clients, including utilizing the diagram’s inner dynamism by using arrow-line-connected points as balancing points or antidotes for the key issues of the main type.
  • New information about how to understand levels of awareness and higher potentials in clients.

This workshop is designed for people who want to understand the Enneagram system at a deep level for “outer impact” in the world. By describing and experiencing the true nature of the types, instinctual drives, subtypes, and growth paths, you will gain confidence leveraging the Enneagram system professionally. Through learning how to identify the level of Enneagram work your client is dealing with and needs, you will be able to best support them in the action portion of their development.
