Why Become An Enneagram Coach?

education enneagram Jan 20, 2019

Hi, Friends! It’s Your Enneagram Coach Beth, here to talk to you a little bit about what I do as a coach. I’ve already shared my story of how the Enneagram transformed my life, accelerated my own growth and enhanced my relationships with others. Whenever something positively impacts your life, whether it’s a product, app, company or even a belief system, you can’t help but share it with everyone you know. That’s why we all love leaving and reading reviews before we buy anything these days, and a glowing endorsement from a friend or family member will have us running to our Amazon carts faster than you can say, “free two day shipping!”

When I was first introduced to the Enneagram back in 2000, it brought so much insight and clarity to my inner world. When I discovered my Type (You can take a free assessment), I finally had a way to put words to the fears, desires and longings of my heart, the reasons why I do the things I do. It also helped me to better understand the people closest to me and give grace and forgiveness when needed. Everything and everyone just made more sense, and I found that my heart and soul were more at peace. As I rested in Christ, I finally saw the lasting changes in my heart and relationships that I’d been so desperately seeking.

Once I dove in, I just couldn’t get enough of the Enneagram. I spent hundreds of hours training under experts and getting advanced certifications. Today I offer one-on-one coaching, workshops and online courses on the Enneagram. Though I came to the Enneagram as a wife and mother, I soon realized that studying and teaching it was my life’s calling. I have a passion to come alongside others to help them experience personal growth and relational transformation in a safe and inviting community. I want everyone to experience the rest in Christ I’ve found, the freedom all our hearts are longing for.

The more people I coached on the Enneagram, the more of my clients realized they too felt a calling to pass their insights to others. That’s when I created a curriculum to train others to become an Enneagram Coach. If you feel a tug on your heart to coach, here are a few reasons why you may want to pursue this path.

  • Coaching gives you the opportunity to guide others to live fully in who they are in Christ, completely free, loved and forgiven.
  • You get to make a lasting impact on the lives of others, all while earning a great income!
  • You can enjoy the freedom and flexibility of working from home with very few business expenses.
  • You’re needed now more than ever! The demand for this kind of guidance and support is at a high-point in history. People are desperately striving for success, significance and relational restoration, and they are looking for a trusted guide.
  • Because coaching is an independent profession, it doesn’t require the rigorous licensing and years of schooling that counseling and psychology professions do, so people can get their business up and running in a much shorter amount of time.
  • The Enneagram is becoming increasingly well-known and respected. While it’s been around for thousands of years, many people are just discovering it’s value and are looking for Enneagram experts to guide them in their journeys.
  • You’ll continue to benefit and grow from the Enneagram as you invest in the lives of other and leave an incredible legacy!
