An Invitation to a Special Retreat for Practitioners of The Leadership Circle Profile™

Join your peers for a 3-day experience of personal transformation as a foundation for expanding your capacity to serve.

Activate the wisdom of the Enneagram in your coaching presence, and unlock new paths of transformation for your TLCP clients.

As a Leadership Circle Profile practitioner, you know your profile results. You may also know your Enneagram type–or at the very least, you’ve heard mention of the Enneagram as a theoretical input for the TLCP model. But how exactly do these two systems complement each other? What is your unique “dance” as you move between your Enneagram type’s patterns of safety and stress, and your TLCP patterns of creativity and reactivity? And what is the impact on your coaching presence and the journey of transformation for the clients you serve?

As we explore the Enneagram together, you will:
Increase understanding of your Enneagram type as you gain insight into your type’s subconscious patterns of motivation
Explore the ways in which core components of Enneagram theory are “baked in” to the TLCP model
Witness dynamic patterns of movement in both your Enneagram type and your TLCP profile. (Spoiler alert: It’s not as random as you think!)
Open rich veins of coaching inquiry for working with your clients’ TLCP results

Your Circles of Wisdom Weekend Includes

Pre-Retreat Consultation

A 30-minute conversation with Paul or Beth to share your intentions and questions, or to clarify your Enneagram type as needed.

3-Day Retreat

With time for dialogue, reflection, experiential exercises and integration in the beauty and wonder of Boulder’s Chautauqua Park.

Meals

A wholesome breakfast and lunch will be served each day.

Schedule

Day 1

Our session begins with a morning walking meditation in Chautauqua Park. Today’s agenda focuses on understanding the Enneagram, with exercises to “try on” each of the nine types

Day 2

Full-day session with midday lunch break. We finish an overview of the nine Enneatypes, and transition after lunch to the points of commonality and distinction between the Enneagram and TLCP 360.

Day 3

Full-day session with midday lunch break. We will focus on the application of both systems–for your own growth, and for your use with clients. The learning deepens via TLCP mat work and peer coaching.

Give Back to Yourself in a Community of Trusted Peers

Nurture your transformation in a space of safety, respect and the mutual support of others who wish to lead and live more intentionally. Through honoring group and individual practices, we will:
Continue to deepen our connection as a community of committed practitioners
Create new spaces of self-awareness and self-compassion, in witness of each other
Expand the common language and frameworks we share to include the Enneagram
Foster appreciation of the diversity of gifts we bring as professionals, collaborators and friends

About the Enneagram

The Enneagram is an ancient symbol that represents nine different personality types, each of which moves in dynamic, yet predictable patterns that are motivated by a set of basic fears and basic desires.
While we may feel we’re an amalgamation of various personality types at one time or another, there is one type that is our definitive base camp. Determining our type and understanding the full spectrum of types can greatly enhance the nature of our relationships—to ourselves, to others and to our place in the world.
The modern day Enneagram is the product of contemporary psychology, although it has links to ancient Greece and consolidates thousands of years of spiritual wisdom including early Christianity, Sufism, and the
Kabbalah. As a tool for practice, the Enneagram is non-denominational. Its overarching premise is that we are spiritual beings in material form; it attempts to show us our divinity and humanity, as well as to enlighten the ways we consistently block our divine nature.
Rather than being a system that puts people into “boxes” of personality type, the Enneagram teaches us that the personality structure itself is a box, and when combined with self-awareness and mindful reflection, it gives us a blueprint for transcending the box of personality.

The Enneagram is useful because it indicates with startling clarity certain constellations of meaning about something that is essentially beyond definition: the mystery that we are.
