Whenever I feel myself resisting an activity now, the enneagram is the first thing that pops into my mind, and I’m struggling far less with taking action on things that just kept me stuck before. By helping me understand the scope of the enneagram beyond my own type, Lisa has helped me be a better coach and a more effective teacher in my business as well as a better partner and parent in my family.
I have more to learn, and Lisa is my go-to resource for continuing to explore this rich framework. I wish I had done this work with her 20 years ago!” ~ Laurie Foley
Lisa helped me see that understanding my Enneagram type can be helpful to quickly let go of things that trigger me. I am no longer swallowed whole by my passionate reactions to things. I more fully own my strengths as well. I can really see the benefit of expressing myself fully and owning the parts of myself that I use to resist. This has been hugely helpful with completing my first book as well as stepping into my business and doing it my own way.
It was a fascinating process and doing this with Lisa was lovely. I enjoyed working with Lisa very much and recommend her and her work highly!” ~ Katie McClain
The whole process was so easy. I appreciated having an audio class and some supporting materials from Lisa before our call. That way I had a good base knowledge of the Enneagram and could make better use of my time with Lisa during our discovery call.
She did such a great job of helping me see the traits that I wasn’t seeing in myself. I sometimes struggled to grasp the meaning of some of the words used in my Enneagram description because I was applying them too narrowly. Lisa gave great examples to help me get more clear about those parts of the description so I could really embrace what is true about me.
As a Certified Myers-Briggs practitioner, I wasn’t sure that I’d get a lot out of our session and I couldn’t have been more wrong. The session reinforced, supplemented and enhanced my self-awareness and shed a lot of light on how my husband and I relate too.
It will be something I reference as I clarify my vision for my coaching practice and all other areas of my life. Amazing stuff! ” ~ Elise Touchette
