Years of coaching experience: 30+

In Cris’s lecture the Essential Enneagram and Essential Coaching will be deepened, in connection with the development of potential and wisdom, either for the coach himself or for his clients (individuals or companies).
It will be done from the theoretical framework of Essentiality, a philosophical-psycho-spiritual look, providing distinctions, models and tools that make it easier for the coach to accompany the journey of the ego to the essential being.
It will be done in a participatory way, with reflections and exercises.
Through meditations and poetry the participant will be able to connect with the power of his own potential.
The participant will be able to take learning and tools applicable to their coaching sessions regardless of their level of expertise or specialization.
